Used Versus New Machinery
In these economic times, many people these days are looking for great deals, including manufacturers. We get it. But does usedalways mean less expensive? Could it be more cost-effective to buy new?
A seven-year-old WEIMA WLK10 shredder with 20,000 hours of operation sold just this week at auction for $45,000.
This tells us two things:
1. WEIMA machines hold their value! This machine is still in great working order, and once it’s equipped with brand new knives, it will be good to go! Buying a WEIMA shredder isn’t a gamble. Our technology has proven itself time and time again and it resells well.
2. Used WEIMA machines are not always less expensive than new machines. By the time that shredder has various parts replaced and is equipped with new knives, the company will have spent $15,000 more. A new machine of the same model goes for a similar price and comes with a warranty!
