Advantages of Buying Used Warehouse Equipment

January 31, 2022

American Surplus Inc. has been working closely with customers to fulfill their new or used material handling equipment needs for over 30 years. As one of the top retailers for warehouse equipment we’ve gladly helped thousands of customers nationwide. Although we sell new equipment our specialty is selling high quality used warehouse equipment. Running a warehouse facility can be costly, which is why it’s beneficial to buy used instead of new.

Buying used warehouse equipment is affordable and cost-effective. When purchasing used warehouse equipment from American Surplus you’ll save 40% - 60% off the price of buying new. Used equipment can be just as dependable as new warehouse equipment, without the high pricing. The money you’ll save will allow you to then invest in other areas. Another reason one may want to consider buying used materials is also due to the current supply chain disruption. And while you wouldn’t necessarily think it would influence the cost of buying new material handling equipment to outfit your warehouse, it does. Manufacturers are going to be paying higher prices on any raw materials, and this cost will be passed onto buyers. This will make it more expensive for warehouses to outfit their facilities. All our used equipment is of the highest quality, but without the expensive price tag. No matter your budget, buying used will make sure that your dollar goes farther when outfitting a warehouse.

Just because the equipment is “used” doesn’t mean that it won’t perform to the same level as new steel warehouse equipment. Whether you’re buying industrial shelving, pallet racks, flooring, or extensive material handling equipment for your business, used equipment is a great economical way to go. Just imagine the money you’ll be saving when purchasing used equipment. The money you save can be reinvested into other parts of your business.

Another advantage of buying used warehouse equipment is that it’s faster to ship. This is ideal for those who are in a rush in getting a warehouse setup. Unlike new warehouse equipment it will not take manufacturers 8 – 10 weeks to fabricate. When buying used you’ll be helping to repurpose perfectly good warehouse equipment. This will help to reduce unnecessary waste.

American Surplus Inc. only offers its customers equipment of the highest quality. All Equipment is inspected and checked before being shipped out of our 530,000 square foot facility.
