American Surplus: We’ll Save You Time and Money

November 11, 2011


Used Material Handling blog is an effort to offer American Surplus Inc. customers an opportunity to get the latest information, tips and suggestions relative to the purchase and use of quality used equipment. Our services are not limited to buying and selling quality used surplus, but also to provide solutions to our customers’ material handling problems.

Our highly skilled and experienced staff of technicians is available to answer any of your questions and to work with you to keep your costs within budget. We do not expect our customers to be experts in layout and design of shelving, racking, mezzanine, and conveyor systems. Our goal is to work with you to analyze your operational problems, identify solutions, and work with you to develop programs that are practical and within budget.

Our expertise is second to none. We welcome anyone to visit our facility, talk with our technicians, and review the actual products being considered for purchase. Talk to the supervisor of our fabrication department and inspect the actual components being considered for your mezzanine order, or speak with one of our many satisfied customers or a system presently being developed that will allow a video tour of our facility. All our departments including sales are being equipped with cameras that will be hooked up to the internet for you so equipment can be viewed prior to purchase. Follow your order right through our operation.

Suppose you are considering downsizing and are not quite sure how your operations can be modified and still provide the same high degree of efficiency. ASI is there to work with you to provide both suggestions, facts and figures along with CAD drawings free of charge. The reason why we can do this is because that is the business we are in and we are confident both you and ASI will profit from this effort.

There are many other ways we can be of service to you because we know our business and want to help our customers get the right product at a fair price. ASI provides assurances that you will get the lowest price with our “Best Price Guarantee” and with many products covered by a 30 day guarantee. Try finding another used dealer offering these kinds of guarantees.

Check our references. Our family of customers that we have served over the past 20 years numbers in the thousands. Also keep in mind that quantity used material handling equipment is not in bountiful supply. Many of our popular products are in great demand throughout the country. Why would you want to spend thousands of dollars for a new forklift when you might use it only 2 or 3 hours a day when a used forklift with a 30 day guarantee can be purchased from ASI for 50-75% less to do the same job and be reliable.

Also keep in mind that some dealers will sell you what they have regardless of your needs. This will not happen at American Surplus because that new forklift will do the job but not solve your budget problem. Responsible used dealers match the value of the product with a fair price and a customer that has the best match of needs. Makes sense in today’s economy. Contact one of our Sales technicians for more information on products, and services.
