New vs. Used Roofing Equipment
When you are preparing to buy roofing equipment for your business, you will have a variety of options. One of the most basic choices you will need to make is deciding whether to buy new or used roofing equipment.
There can be advantages and drawbacks to each choice, so it’s best to contemplate the pros and cons in order to determine which would best solve your current needs.
New roofing equipment
Brand new, in perfect condition
Can be custom-ordered according to your specifications
Choice includes the very latest models
No previous wear and tear
The main drawback to buying new roofing equipment is the price. You may be paying full price for the equipment, which may in turn limit the amount of roofing equipment you will be able to buy at one time.
Used roofing equipment
In direct contrast to buying new equipment, with used roofing equipment the biggest attraction is the price. You can save a considerable amount, which in turn may allow you to buy more equipment. This is especially helpful for new or smaller businesses, or those with a tight budget.
If you have a particular interest in a specific type of older equipment—or you are seeking to augment some of the roofing equipment you already have—buying used may be your best route to locate these items.
You may have limited selection options, and likely can’t customize your selections.
Items may have some signs of wear and tear. Condition can vary widely.
