It can be tricky to decide between purchasing new and used construction equipment. The best decision will depend on a number of factors including finances, the type of equipment, the reason you need it, and more.
There are a couple of reasons why new construction equipment could seem appealing overused construction equipment. First of all, the new models are up to date with the latest technology. They are also often accompanied by good warranties and customer service plans. You might not have to worry as much about repairs yet, as they are brand new. But does this make them worth the high price?
New construction equipment prices are already through the roof, but they have been steadily rising in recent years. In order to make the best decision, it is imperative that you assess your budget in detail. You will also need to assess the reason why you need the machine, as this can act as a decision making factor as well.
Used construction equipment is much less costly than buying new. We offer used construction equipment that is refurbished by trustworthy contractors. Our team is also available for customer service. We cannot guarantee the machines come with a warranty, however, because they are not new. While our used construction equipment cannot remain as up to date with technological advancement as brand new equipment can, we are always bringing in equipment and stay relatively up to date.
Purchasing used construction equipment does have its drawbacks, however. You will have to be careful about regularly maintaining your equipment. There will likely be parts that need replacing at certain milestones, just like with a used car. You will also need to be sure that your equipment meets certain safety standards. You might want to have your equipment checked by a technician before you put it into use, just to get confirmation that it will comply with safety regulations.
You might also consider financing. If you are buying new equipment, the monthly payments will be considerably higher than if you buy used equipment at a lower price. If you want to make the payments lower and more manageable, you could finance for a longer period of time. This will rack up interest fees quickly, though, making you pay a lot more in the grand scheme of things. If you do not have plenty of wiggle room in your budget for a high monthly payment, you should opt for used construction equipment.
We sell used construction equipment that performs as though it is new. Unless there is some new feature that will dramatically alter the way you get your job done, there is not much of a reason to opt for new construction equipment overused construction equipment.
