Purchasing Used Equipment

Have you ever purchased used equipment? Was your experience positive or negative?
By Jeff Freehof

Yes, I’ve purchased used equipment. There are times that it works out well and times it doesn’t. Regardless of the used equipment you are considering, do your best to have your own independent contractor to look at it thoroughly, just as you would take a used car to your mechanic to check it out before you buy it. Another option is to get a warranty on the used equipment you are buying.
