In the construction business, every dollar counts. And to make a profit and thrive, it’s crucial to reduce costs whenever possible and increase productivity. Buying used equipment for your construction needs can be a smart decision, in both ways. Customers who buy concrete pumps from us are presented with a wide inventory of used pumps to suit various needs. Our selection at Concrete Pumps USA includes construction equipment from major brands such as Reed, Putzmeister, Sany, and Schwing.
Before purchasing any used equipment, we recommend that you consider the following:
- Buyer and Seller History
Find out how long the machine has been in circulation, including who has sold it and who has owned it before. This will give you an idea of how well maintained it has been, and how much heavy work it can handle within its lifespan.
It’s also advisable to check with the authorities. That will help you to find out whether the equipment is legitimate or has been stolen. You can get such information by taking the product serial and identification numbers and having them checked by the police department, or at the National Equipment Register.
- Seller Reputation
Before buying equipment from a vendor, seek to know whether they have made similar sales in the past and if their customers were satisfied. When it comes to buying used machinery, it’s best to get them from a seller who has an established presence and customer base, as it’s proof that they provide genuine and functional equipment.
- Description vs. Condition
Does the condition of the machine match the description provided by the seller? This is one way of determining the trustworthiness of a vendor. If your inspection of the equipment reveals several problems that they had not revealed to you, we advise you to look for a different seller. We also recommend going with an expert who is knowledgeable in all the important components that need to be checked to ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.
- Maintenance History
If the machine you want to buy has undergone several major repairs, then it might not be the best for you. This is an indication that once you acquire it, you may end up spending a lot of money on repairs and losing time and productivity. Construction equipment that has experienced a lot of damages may also not be able to perform the heavy-duty work you need it to.
Used construction equipment usually goes for about half of the original price. The price may even be lower in regards to age and how much use the machinery has been put to. However, a reduced price does not necessarily mean that you’re getting value for your money. Compare the price offered to the condition of the machine, any part replacements required, and age. Don’t be in a hurry to purchase equipment offered at extremely low prices, as this could be an indication of hidden issues.
