BENEFITS OF BUYING USED EQUIPMENT
The market for pre-owned equipment has significantly increased over the past five years. In saying so, there are a number of benefits when it comes to purchasing pre-owned equipment and companies can save between 25% and 75% off of the original cost of a machine.
Buying used equipment can save a significant amount of time and also provides a great year-end purchasing solution that will help get your facility ready for next year. Successful organization make sourcing pre-owned equipment a formal process and easy for their people to use. Most importantly, these companies create clear policies that support pre-owned procurement.
The main benefit of purchasing used equipment at year-end is time. If you need to get an asset up and running right after the new year, used equipment definitely has the advantage over a new model because lead time to use is significantly longer on new equipment. Most second-hand equipment is available immediately. In essence, companies can get their projects up and running faster – increasing the speed to market, and/or reducing production downtime. So there is definitely no need to start the new year off slow and unprepared!
