Purchase of broadcast and audio equipment

Vintagetools has been dealing with the purchase, disposal, recycling, repair and development of high-quality audio and broadcast gear since 2005. Regardless of whether you just have to sell a few devices, ob trucks, studio, etc.  or clear entire warehouses with equipment, we are your competent partner. We have the experience, various references, the capacities and the know-how to complete all tasks quickly and smoothly for you. If you only want to sell a small amount of technology, please send us a list, some pictures and if possible your asking price. For larger projects, a visit at your company may be useful to better determine the scope and value of your goods.

If you decide to work with us on a permanent basis, we can also act as your general waste disposal and sales agents. You will then have one competent contact person and in future you will not have to deal with the problem of sales and disposal again for every project. We would be happy to meet you personally! The best way to make an appointment is to contact us at: Oliver Nauck 0173-6666515.

your situation

We know from experience that in many public radio and television stations there is no firm responsibility for the area, separation. If they do, there is often little, mostly uninteresting, discarded equipment in these stores. There are multiple reasons for that:

• The various project planners are not aware of the existence of the separation camp or they fear the associated effort
• The removal and transport of a permanently installed device is too complex. Scrapping is easier.
• Fear of possible warranty claims by the buyers.
• Expansion, relocation, valuation, i.e. the total personnel costs for the recycling chain are too high.
• Cash receipts cannot be posted where waste disposal costs should actually arise.
• and so on.

The discarded material often goes either directly or only after a detour via various interim storage facilities in the house into the trash. Often the equipment sits unused in storage until it is no longer worth anything. The decline in value, particularly in the field of digital technology, is progressing very quickly.

our professional service for you:

• We can buy your discarded OB vans, cutting vehicles, D-SNGs and other special vehicles including technology.
• We not only buy equipment individually, but also on pallets or containers.
• We clear your warehouse reliably, quickly and competently and then hand it over to you swept clean.
• We can professionally dismantle and transport larger devices such as mixer systems or transmission control systems with our professional tech team.
• We buy the goods as seen, or as defective hobbyist goods. No warranty issues as with consumers on ebay, etc.
• You will not have any problems with guarantees, sales platforms and their payment and contract conditions.
• You will save expensive personnel resources for dismantling, storage, sales, shipping, and returns.
• You will save storage costs.
• You think about the environment. We continue to use a large part of the technology and internals. What we cannot use will be disposed of properly.
• We charge purchase prices with disposal costs for all orders and would be happy to make you an offer.
• Faster and cost-saving implementation of the conversion measures in your home.
• We work throughout Germany and partly also in neighboring countries.


In the past years, we have bought over 20 OB vans from various broadcasters, cleared several studios and warehouses, and supplied various customers worldwide with our partly overhauled and partly newly developed devices. We bough gear from Südwestfunk Stuttgart, Südwestfunk Mainz and Baden Baden, ZDF Mainz, RTL Cologne, CBC Cologne, BR Munich, BR Nuremberg, WDR Dortmund, HR Frankfurt and many small and large studios and production companies in private hands.
