Why You Might Want to Purchase a Used Spray Foam Trailer

By Kevin Malone

A spray foam insulation trailer is a big investment. Not everyone has the cash to outfit a brand-new rig. For start-ups and businesses with tight budgets, the savings may be the difference between being able to add a trailer or not.

You might be looking for a bargain or adding to your fleet. Either way, there are pros and cons to buying a used spray foam trailer.

Buying a Used Spray Foam Trailer – Pros and Cons


The biggest advantage of buying a used spray foam insulation enclosed trailer is the cost savings. Lower upfront prices can often save half the cost of buying new. You can often find great deals. As businesses shut down or trade up, you can sometimes find relatively new trailers in good condition. Trailers built for spray foam insulation applications are generally highly durable, especially if they are well-maintained.

Another advantage is that you may be able to find a used spray foam trailer that is already outfitted with everything you need. You can pick it up and get to work right away without spending money to outfit the trailer with racks, generators, heating systems, etc.


One of the biggest drawbacks of buying used is that you are not 100% certain what you are getting. There may be hidden problems, and there is typically no manufacturer warranty. This is one reason why you should always buy any used equipment from a reputable dealer or distributor that will ensure the equipment is working properly. Problems that go undetected can turn into expensive repairs.

The selection of used trailers is also more limited compared to buying new ones. Finding a used spray foam trailer with the exact configuration you prefer or the equipment you need may be difficult. You may have to make some concessions to save money.

Used trailers also tend to have older equipment, so you may not get all the latest features.

What to Look for in a Used Spray Foam Trailer

When you are considering buying a used spray foam insulation enclosed trailer, it is important to fully understand its condition. While buying from a reputable company like Intech Equipment and Supply, remember you are still buying a trailer someone else has owned before. You may not know how well it was maintained or how rough they were with it. So, you will need to look a little closer than with a new model.

Research Replacement Parts

Just about every piece of spray foam equipment will need replacement parts at some point, whether it is worn out or just part of your regular maintenance cycle. With older equipment, you want to make sure that replacement parts are available. If parts are readily available, great! If not, you could be setting yourself up for costly replacements.

Why Buy Used From Intech Equipment and Supply

When you work with Intech Equipment and Supply, one big advantage is that you get a thorough inspection from a team of spray foam experts. Every piece of used equipment is checked and either fully refurbished or checked to be in working condition.
