Buying Refurbished Equipment and Who to Buy From
Why does it matter who you are buying used or refurbished equipment from? Overall, you will be getting the same equipment in the end, right? That is not always the case. It is important to know who you are buying from for multiple reasons which this blog is here to discuss.
When looking for Taylor equipment online you might end up coming across exactly what you are looking for, but it is not sold by a distributor. Contacting that distributor such as Lane & McClain, you might find the price to be higher which sways you a bit. However, do you know why that price is higher? It is because you will not only be getting that piece of equipment but making sure it is well looked after long after purchase. From the parts, delivery, instillation, and service done by a factory-trained technician, all this will be included when buying from an authorized distributor wrapped up into that price.
Now, you might have a service person on hand, but they might not be factory-trained and end up using unauthorized parts that end up causing more damage to your machine. It could very well end up costing more than it was to buy a certified used machine. The machine could also have been labeled incorrectly when you buy it online. For example, you are looking to purchase a soft serve machine but end up with a frozen drink machine instead. While they are similar in how they work it is not the same and making soft serve from a frozen beverage machine will prove a difficult task.
These are just a few reasons why it is better to buy a refurbished piece of equipment from an authorized dealer like Lane & McClain Distributors.
