And cost aside, with so much quality used machines for sale on the market at any given time, there’s really no need to buy new. Here’s a look at 5 big advantages to buying used machines tools and plastics machinery over new.
1. Lower cost
Buying a new machine is a significant investment that can easily eat up money better spent on a second machine, of tools, peripheral, or auxiliary equipment you already have.
The cost of one new machine could equate to two or more used machines, depending on availability and demand.
2. Avoid initial depreciation
New industrial machinery are no different than new machines in that the minute you drive them off the lot, they depreciate in value – as much as 20 to 30 per cent in the first 12 months!1 Buy used industrial machinery and you’re avoiding that initial depreciation.
3. Used machine holds its value
Although used equipment has depreciated, it can hold its value if it’s well-maintained. When it’s time to sell, it’s actually possible to get close to what you paid if you sell at the right time, to a market where your machine is in demand.
