I'm looking at kitting out a machine shop.
I used to do a lot of procurement of used machine tools. ( ex-Mfg. Eng.)
The best place to start is with a reputable Millwright company. They know all the auctions, companies selling stuff etc. because it their business to move it and re-install. Watch out though, it can cost more than the cost of the machine to move it, transport and install. I once boaught a $30k CNC water jet profiling machine that cost $50k to move and install. My boss was not too pleased.
PS. machine tools are valued as much on the amount of tooling that comes with them as the machine itself. I am sure you know that.
