What to Look for in a Spray Foam Equipment Distributor

If you are in the market for new spray foam equipment, you are already aware of how much financial planning it takes to make a smart purchase. Choosing a spray foam equipment distributor with the right credentials and customer service is critical to protect you from hiccups that can disrupt your business.

A bad return policy or absence of a warranty for new equipment can be detrimental financially if you get stuck with a piece of faulty equipment. It is essential to find a reputable, honest, and knowledgeable distributor that can serve your practical business needs. Here is what to look for in a spray foam equipment distributor.

A Good Reputation

Look for online reviews and feedback from the BBB on how good the distributor is before forming a relationship. Since spray foam equipment is expensive, it is important to buy from an entity that is stable and stands by its promises. Be wary of new websites that have a short history or places that cannot give you references. When you read reviews, check for verified loyal customers who have been thrilled with the service provided.

The BBB website should have 0 complaints or all resolved complaints with thorough explanations for how the customer was served.  The longer the business has been in operation, the better too. A new company is not as stable as one that has been in operation for over a decade. This information is easily found on the BBB website and is helpful when deciding how good the business is. Also, look for a rating of A+, like we do at Intech Equipment and Supply.

Honesty

Buy from a spray foam distributor that will be able to disclose to you if you really need the equipment in question, or if there is a more economical option to suit your budget. Dishonest companies will pick an unnecessarily expensive product to make a quick profit, but good distributors will guide you through the buying process with step-by-step questions about your needs.

For example, if you are an entry-level residential contractor, there is no need for a PMC PHX-55 quite yet. You can save money by getting a well-performing entry-level machine like the Graco Reactor E-20 and spend less, which will match your income. Also, if there is vital equipment that can serve your needs the same way as a new item, a good company will present these options to you.

Industry Knowledge

When you purchase spray foam equipment, working with a distributor with a solid knowledge of the industry is vital. If the distributor does not have staff that can answer your crucial questions about what to buy, then walk the other way. Getting the right spray foam equipment is crucial in this industry where your specific applications can succeed depending on what type of rig you customize.

Don’t follow bad advice and get a custom rig that lacks the production volume you need to for an average day, but instead talk to someone whose boots have been on the ground on a spray foam work site. At Intech Equipment and Supply, we are here for you, and we have many people on our team who can tell you what they would use first-hand for your specific spray foam needs.

Speedy Service

Lastly, it can be frustrating to wait for your equipment when the time is ticking. Maybe you needed to start a project yesterday or your main proportioner stopped working mid-project. Can you wait 7 days or longer for a new machine to arrive? Imagine the loss of time and money due to this kind of situation. But if you choose a distributor that has warehouses around the country, you can get your desperately needed equipment in 1 to 2 days, and sometimes even the same day with rushed shipping!

We know how much it matters to stay on schedule and to have your business outfitted with dependable equipment. At Intech, we do our part by offering our services at four different warehouse locations around the continental U.S., strategically located to be no further than two shipping days away from any address in the nation. How’s that for speed?
