One of the most common misconceptions about buying remanufactured conveyor is that you are buying product of inferior quality. You see this trend in other industries, when comparing the cost-saving measures of buying pre-owned to the peace of mind of buying new.
The people selling you the new equipment are perfectly happy to have it this way. It gives them a leg up that they haven’t earned.
There are many industries where the same confidence can be had with buying pre-owned equipment that you’ll get buying new. However, there are a few where buying used is preferential to buying new.
After all, a new car will lose roughly 10% of its value the moment you drive it off the lot.
Is your business in a situation to afford a 10% value loss on buying new equipment? Is it in a position to take a 50% value loss? And how about the time it takes the warehouse to manufacture completely new equipment?
Give used some thought before buying new.
