Purchasing a Used Industrial Air Compressor

Used Air CompressorIf your business is in need of an industrial air compressor, there are two options. Either buy a brand new air compressor, or invest in a used one. Although there are certain advantages to a brand new air compressor, there are quite a few advantages on buying a used air compressor. A used air compressor can save a company thousands of dollars and work just as efficiently as a new air compressor. However, there are some things to keep in mind when purchasing a used air compressor. Here are some things to take into consideration when searching for a used air compressor:

  • Be sure the air compressor has clean, working parts first and foremost
  • Check for any sludge build-up and if there are any missing parts
  • If the air compressor is damaged, estimate the costs that would go into repairing it
  • Be sure the used air compressor is still under warranty, as it makes the process of getting it repaired much easier
  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate when it comes to finding a price for the used air compressor

Whether or not your business requires a brand new air compressor or will benefit from a used air compressor is ultimately up to you. With proper maintenance and up to date repairs, a used industrial air compressor can provide just as much benefit as a brand new industrial air compressor can while saving up to thousands of dollars in costs.
