Hickleys are selling off many of their used, ex-demo, display and training centre key cutting machines in a massive September sale.
They have a large range of electronic and duplication machines in excellent condition and at knock down prices. Often there is only one or two of each type so they are sold on a 1st come 1st served basis and once they're gone they're gone!
All units come with all necessary equipment, warranty and support, often the machines are in perfect condition with only the packaging that is missing.
