What to Expect when Buying Used

A Guide to Buying Used Equipment From SIGMA Equipment

More often than not, buying used means you’ll get your equipment faster, for a better price, and your downtime won’t be nearly as long. Meaning you can get back to production faster than buying new. However, everyone knows that not all used equipment is treated equally, causing some additional points to be considered.

Luckily, when working with SIGMA Equipment, you’ll find that no matter what equipment you choose, we are here to make sure the buying process runs as smoothly as possible and that you are communicated with every step of the way. At SIGMA Equipment, we know the ins and outs of buying equipment and can help share our knowledge with you. This gives you all the resources you need to make an informed decision, while still owning the buying decisions. We take you through the buying process step by step and talk with you to confirm that you not only feel comfortable with the equipment you are buying, but you are making an educated decision.

We’ve compiled the following guide for you to consider when buying used packaging and processing equipment. However, as always, if you need any help at all, please reach out to our dedicated team.

Benefits of Buying Used

You’ll save money

Buying used is a great alternative from buying from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). You still get the brand name you want, but for a lower price. This is a great way for you to increase production without additional overhead costs.

You have buying options

With most OEMs, you have 2 decisions - you can buy their equipment or not. Not with SIGMA, we offer several options to fit your timeline and your needs. Depending on your needs, we offer several options to fit your timeline and budget. Not only do we have an extensive inventory of our own to sell, but we also can locate equipment for you with our multiple dealers and connect you with the equipment you need. We also offer rentals and rent-to-own options in case you do not want to make a purchase right away. This means you’ll be saving your company money and can put those savings right back into additional business needs.

You’ll save time

Time is the one commodity you can’t get more of, which is why it is so critical that you find a partner that can move as quickly as you need them to. We move fast here at SIGMA Equipment, because not only do we know that time is money, but also how important it is to get your equipment and the steps it takes to get it there on time. This means we can find the piece, quote it, invoice it, and ship it as quickly as possible to get you what you need.
