There are so many reasons to consider buying used reconditioned electrical equipment to replace or repair equipment within your manufacturing facility.  Feeling confident when purchasing refurbished and reconditioned electrical supplies is simple; the market demands high quality equipment and that is what you can expect out of electrical equipment that has been reconditioned.

There are many reasons why the popularity of equipment and supplies that have been reconditioned has risen.  In this article we will explain how price, availability, warranties and quality testing help to create a positive return on your investment when purchasing and using reconditioned electrical equipment over new surplus.

Price: On average a company can save anywhere from fifty to seventy five percent on the cost of electrical equipment when buying reconditioned equipment over the cost of new surplus.  Over time this savings can really add up for your company.  Why not save money where you can especially when there is very little difference between purchasing new over reconditioned electrical equipment.

Availability: The availability of reconditioned products over new is a huge benefit when it comes to making a purchase.  New inventory, equipment and replacement parts, often take a substantial amount of time to come in.  Most manufactures do not keep inventory in stock of a wide selection of new equipment. Lead times to order these products can take anywhere from a week to several months.  This is not conducive to fixing an issue right now.  Used reconditioned equipment can be in hand as fast as it takes the product to ship.  Electrical supply companies tend to stock an abundance of reconditioned electrical equipment so that when an issue arises they can ship the product directly to you minimizing additional down time for your business.

Warranty:  Another benefit of purchasing reconditioned electrical equipment is the warranty that is issued.  Reputable companies will offer a one year warranty on all reconditioned electrical supply purchases.  This is equivalent to what most manufactures offer on new surplus.

Quality: The standards when purchasing equipment that has been reconditioned is fairly stringent.  Electrical parts are fully disassembled.  From there each and every part is cleaned and thoroughly inspected.  Parts are then painted, reassembled and tested.  Products are tested to ensure that they are as close to new as possible.  Each product must meet or exceed the manufacturers UL certification.  Voltage withstands all tests from one phase to another to the ground.

When equipment is not longer manufactured you may not have a choice other than to purchase reconditioned parts.  This is something that occurs frequently as technology changes.  Components are reconditioned to ensure that your manufacturing equipment doesn’t also become obsolete when parts fail.  Equipment is an expense that most business owners don’t want to make until they have exhausted all other options.  Another major benefit in when it comes to the reconditioned electrical component market.
