Need reputable distributor for used/refurbished commercial espresso machines.

Hello,
I was hoping for ideas on trustworthy companies or people that sell refurbished commercial espresso machines.  I currently looking for two, 2 groups to use as secondary machines and was trying to keep the cost down.  They will both accompany larger Linea's, so a Marzocco would be nice but not a necessity.  
I've been watching baristaexchange classifieds but haven't found the right one yet. 
Thank You,
Chad

www.gimmecoffee.com --> They refurb machines, I have known the two tech guys for many years. They have a good selection of 1-4 grouphead machines, La Marzocco, Mirage, Faema, Synesso, and more. They are really helpful with finding a machine that will suit your shop.
I have two good used 2-group machines that might serve your purpose. Both professionally serviced, (cleaned, new gaskets and seals), and carefully stored away in heated storage about a year and a half ago. I've been thinking about selling them for a while but just never got around to placing an ad. One is an Astoria that I got from some friends that had a bagel shop in Iowa and the other is a Conti that I used myself for 5 years and really loved it. Both are about 12 years old, used but not abused. If you're interested, email bobvk88@hotmail.com

lol... j/k!

;p
Thanks all for the suggestions. Still giving them some thought.
William with Commercial Espresso in Southern California (909-697-6033). He's a small "shop," maybe just his garage, but he had strong references when I called them. I just bought a refurbished 2002 Linea from him. It arrived in seemingly great shape. I recently took it by the local La Marzocco guy (nice to have Barry Jarrett in my extended circle of friends) who has so far found nothing to replace or fix. I'll post more as this develops.
I may have some refurbished Astra machines available if you still need something.
Site Sponsors are a good place to start. Nuova Simonelli can be reached via the website http://www.nuovadistribution.com and of course Espressoparts, at http://www.espressoparts.com with whom I am associated. The other mentions in this thread are great as well.
Thank you Terry, I had spoken with Brandy in your office. She was very helpful. She did mention the two LM GS/2's you have. They are a bit more than what my customers are looking for right know. I've been meaning to contact Nuova Simonelli. I appreciate that suggestion.

Well, I dont have a 2 group available. Only an Astra Gourmet Automatic (single head)thats been refurbished by Astra. Virtually a brand new machine when they're done. New List is 3560.00. The Refurbished is 2000.00 plus shipping.

Thank you Mitch, I'll give the single group some thought.

I have an Astoria Argenta SAE 2 Raised Group that has been meticulously cared for and gently used since 2006. If the other Astoria is similar, it would be easier of both machines could share a common stock of spare parts, and things like PF handles and such could cross.
She comes with a ton of stuff; nekkids, triples, spare screens, etc.
E-mail me (see the link) for more detailed history.
