Seven Reasons Why Used Equipment is Better than New
1. 4X the Manufacturer’s Warranty
Copier manufacturers offer a 90 day guarantee on new machines. At UCRI we offer a full one year warranty on all of our copiers. You can rest assured as to the long term quality and viability of the equipment you are purchasing.
2. Modifications and Retrofits
Every new machine has modifications and retrofits that are introduced weeks or months after introduction. Some have dozens! Some of these are minor; others are quite substantial in relation to their impact on the performance of the machine. While the manufacturer is identifying problems and designing these modifications, you could be experiencing down time and lost production. When we remanufacture a copier we have prior knowledge of all the necessary modifications and retrofits. When we install these during our rebuild process we are making a copier that is, in effect, better than new!
3. No “Lemon” models
When you have been selling copiers for as long as we have you see your share of “lemon” models. These are those models that have serious inherent problems that show up after several months or past a certain meter threshold.
When we choose which models to add to our line of remanufactured equipment, certainly we avoid these models, leaving only the best viable models that are available.
4. 1 Year 100% Upgrade Guarantee
Offering a one year 100% upgrade is a great value for you. It gives you the flexibility and confidence to know that if you quickly outgrow your copier, you have the option to upgrade without losing a penny.
5. Used Means Green
Many companies have instituted a green initiative. And many others are at least interested in a green alternative. The amount of carbon dioxide gas released into the atmosphere is 355 tons per every 1000 copiers manufactured. (For information on the carbon footprint of copiers go to:Industry Player). The carbon footprint of a rebuilt copier is practically zero.
6. (Re) Made in America!
When you buy a new copier the majority of the profits are going to Japan, China or Korea. When you buy a rebuilt copier 100% of the price goes back into American businesses through the dealers’ parts and labor, the equipment resellers, and the leasing companies. In times like these more than ever, we need to support American businesses.
Last but not least is Cost. This is the no brainer part of your purchase. A rebuilt copier is going to cost you 50 to 70 percent less than a comparable new model. When you add in the one year warranty and the value of the 100% upgrade, the cost is even less.
