Erase any stigma you have about the lower quality you get when you buy used electrical equipment. In many cases, this used equipment is in pristine condition, and you gain financial advantages too from going the used rather than the new route. Need more convincing that electrical equipment that is used is not worth your time? Read on.
One, used electrical equipment does not just get tossed back into a pile, repackaged and resold to you. There are steps that usually occur with used electrical equipment to ensure it still works and that it still has all the right parts. The price will ultimately be lower for you, but that is really because someone else used it before. But the quality usually is not sacrificed, so you are left with a lower cost for the same piece of equipment you could get at a hardware store or a car auto body shop.
Two, used electrical equipment is generally sold by authorized dealers and resellers. From selling a Siemens electrical panel to reselling PPE equipment, these dealers understand the products they are selling too. They may not have every bit of available information on, say, a Siemens bus duct or Square D transformers, but they know enough to ensure you are getting the best product at the best price possible for you.
Three, used electrical equipment generally comes with some sort of limited warranty, if one already existed on the product before it was resold. Sometimes used transformers do not carry warranties with them, but lots of other used electrical equipment will have at least some form of limited warranty, so if anything goes wrong you have something to fall back on and could ideally get the repair covered under warranty if necessary. Sometimes having that guarantee is all you need to make the right decision on a product.
Four, used electrical equipment is far easier to get online, and it is far simpler to negotiate both pricing and delivery. When new equipment is sold, there are stricter guidelines that come with the purchasing decisions made online and in stores. But with used equipment, the tides change, and there are less limits on how these products are bought and sold. So you not only get a greater chance to negotiate pricing, but you additionally can find this equipment virtually everywhere now that the web has become the No. 1 place to purchase this equipment.
