Questions to Ask Before Buying Used Recycling Equipment For Your Business

Used Recycling Equipment Would you like to obtain recycling equipment for your business without spending a fortune on it? One easy way to cut your costs is by going with used recycling equipment instead of brand new equipment. You could save yourself hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars by going this route. But before you purchase used recycling equipment, there are some questions you should ask about it. Take a look at 3 of the main questions to ask below.

 “Why are you selling your used recycling equipment?”

The first thing you should try to find out before buying used recycling equipment is why the seller wants to get rid of it. If they’re selling it because their company is going out of business or because they don’t use the equipment much anymore, you probably don’t have anything to worry about. However, if they’re selling it because they don’t like the way the equipment works, it should obviously be a huge red flag for you. Try to get to the bottom of why they’re getting rid of the equipment in the first place.

“What did you do to maintain your used recycling equipment over time?”

In addition to asking a seller why they’re selling their used recycling equipment, you should also ask what kind of maintenance they’ve done on it over the years. Ideally, you want to purchase recycling equipment that has been maintained properly. This will ensure that you’re able to get plenty of life out of it.

“Can you help transport the used recycling equipment to my facility and set it up?”

Recycling equipment is usually big and bulky and not all that easy to transport from one place to another. If you don’t have a way to transport it on your own, you should see what the seller can arrange for you. Your seller should be capable of bringing the used recycling equipment to you and setting it up in the spot where you want it.
