Leverage Used Spray Foam Equipment for Profit

By Kevin Malone

You have jobs to do and want to get them done efficiently and profitability. You can buy new spray foam equipment for sale or opt for used equipment. If you go with used spray foam insulation equipment, you can significantly reduce your upfront costs. By working with a dealer like Intech Equipment & Supply, you can get high-quality used equipment to help maximize your profitability.

The Cost Benefits of Buying Used Spray Foam Insulation Equipment

Depending on their size and scale, new SPF rigs can cost $50,000 or more. Used equipment is often as much as 50% cheaper. This improves the ROI by cutting the amount of jobs you have to take on to recoup your investment.

Savings from buying used rigs improve cash flow and can help a growing business add additional capacity, or help new contractors get started in the business. Many companies buy used spray foam insulation equipment to add to their fleet to handle additional demand.

While used equipment will be older and have some wear and tear, with the right TLC, quality used rigs can last for years to come.

Adding equipment can increase your profitability in several ways. You can take on more jobs, resulting in more income. You can also provide more competitive pricing since you are not working to pay off higher-priced new models. As long as the equipment works and remains productive, the savings compound over the years. Once you have recouped your costs, the rest is profit.

Evaluating Used Spray Foam Insulation Equipment

When you are evaluating spray foam equipment for sale, your biggest concern is getting equipment that works well. You will want to pay attention to the brand, model, age, and capacity. Ask to see maintenance records.

You can find used equipment online, but you want to make sure you can trust the person or company you are buying from. Avoid online marketplaces where sellers can disappear overnight, leaving you with equipment that looks good but does not work properly. You want to buy from a reputable dealer with a track record of service, who will be there after the sale and can help you troubleshoot any problems that arise.

While spray foam equipment is durable, it will need maintenance and replacement parts. With older models, you want to make sure such parts are still available. It can be an expensive lesson when buying used equipment only to find out you cannot get replacement parts to keep it in working order.

Working with Intech Equipment & Supply, you can be confident you will know exactly what you are getting ahead of time. Our technicians evaluate used equipment and assess quality and performance.

You also need to make sure you are right-sizing the equipment for the type of jobs you do. If you are taking on large industrial jobs, it may be far better to buy a used high-capacity spray foam rig rather than spend a similar amount of money for a new entry-level model. The team at Intech Equipment & Supply can help you right-size your equipment for the jobs you handle.

Optimizing Used Spray Foam Equipment

With used equipment, you want to conduct regular, preventative maintenance and address any performance issues when they arise. Depending on the condition of your spray foam rig, you may need to upgrade components such as guns, hoses, or heaters.

With a used rig, it’s a good idea to track productivity and performance metrics. You may not get the same output as you’d get from a newer model, and when you see a performance lag, it’s time to figure out what is causing the drop-off. Downtime is expensive. Not only do you have to spend the time and money to make repairs, but you lose the ability to take on additional work until your equipment is working again.

Proper maintenance and smart upgrades can extend the lifespan of equipment, so make sure you account for the time and cost when evaluating your equipment for purchase.
