ASI wants to buy…………. good used industrial storage, material handling and warehouse equipment. All equipment must be in good resalable condition. We regularly buy used horizontal carousels, used conveyor, and much more. Please call our purchasing agent at 800-876-3736
Used Horizontal Carousels (con't)
Horizontal carousels are used for distribution centers that have requirements for small parts. Product can be stored in bins or on shelves. The flexible design allows the shelf levels to adjust. The used horizontal carousel is ideal for non-stop applications such as stockrooms and warehousing. Horizontal carousels are a low maintenance solution to parts storage.
Several orders can be entered into the system. These become a group to create a batch. The operator follows the displayed lights and picks the items in order and places items in a batch station. The carousel then rotates so the operator does not. After completion of the batch, a new batch is entered and the process begins again. Used horizontal carousels allow operators to pick from one carousel while the other carousels are re-positioning.
Used horizontal carousels save up to 75% floor space and store more parts in less floor space, increase productivity by bring the parts to the employees, and increases accuracy levels.

Frequently Asked Questions about Used Conveyor
Q. How will I know if the equipment I am buying will work when I receive it?
A. ASI guarantees that what we quote and sell will operate when it’s received (exclusive of freight damage).
Q. Why does ASI need a 50% deposit?
A. Even though this is used equipment every unit is torn down, inspected and cut to size. At ASI you can get what you want and still save weeks of lead time while saving 45-65% off retail every day.
Q. I need a used conveyor in a tight lead time. What can ASI do for me?
A. ASI can usually get orders out in 7-14 business days. If a specific date is required a premium of 10-15% is required for overtime performance. We can make it happen!
Q. If I purchase some used gravity conveyor for a purpose but later find out a used power conveyor would have been more efficient, can I trade up?
A. Absolutely, you can simply return the gravity with a minimum restocking fee and we will apply the balance toward a used power conveyor purchase of your choice.
Q. Does ASI provide installation of my used conveyor purchase?
A. Yes we do! If you are considering this option figure 25-30% of the conveyors cost as a budget figure. Call your ASI rep for a firm price.
Q. Does ASI buy used conveyor?
A. Yes! We buy used conveyors in bulk and we stock over 300,000 lf of conveyor.
Q. How can I pay for my used conveyor?
A. We accept company check, wire transfers, Visa, Mastercard, bank checks and cash.
Q. Can I visit ASI and see my conveyor options?
A. Absolutely, we encourage you to do so. It’s a little overwhelming though when you arrive. Our conveyors are not assembled prior to sale. We will show you our conveyor shop and orders in holding waiting to ship.
Q. What type of experience does ASI have in selling and processing used conveyor orders?
A. We have four salesmen on staff with between 12-25 years experience and our conveyor mechanics have between 15-25 years. Rest assured we just don’t flip conveyor orders like other dealers. We have a well experienced staff that can get you what you need.
