Repairing used construction equipment is considerably less costly than purchasing brand new machinery. If you are looking to purchase construction equipment, you should consider refurbishing your older, used machine rather than forking out a fortune on a new one.
Construction equipment like telehandlers and boom lifts do not change much over time, design wise. They may gain new features here and there, but these features can always be added through modifications when you refurbish a used machine. This is likely the less costly way to upgrade your construction equipment.
As the new versions of the equipment have not offered significant improvement over the last decade or so, it is perfectly acceptable to refurbish a used piece of equipment as long as it is safe to use. If you don’t already own a piece of used construction equipment, consider purchasing one. Try to find a machine that is not too old—in years or hours.
There are many steps you can take to refurbish your used construction equipment. Aesthetics are more important than you might think. The appearance of your construction equipment can dictate what people think of your business when they drive past or see you working on their property. If the used piece of construction equipment is not aesthetically pleasing, you can have it sandblasted, repainted, detailed with new stickers, new seats, tires, ect; at our facility, just to mention a few items. Few businesses offer painting services for construction equipment. Equipment Services not only does repair and service but has a full paint facility dedicated to sandblasting, priming and painting. EQS has been doing this for years and knows how to do this professionally at the most cost effective price.
Maybe you found a great used telehandler or other piece of construction equipment, but it was either missing parts or had other mechanical issues. Most parts can be replaced, including engines, hydraulic hoses, transmissions, etc. As long as you hire the right company to perform the repair, your used construction equipment will be running like new.
When you complete a full refurbishment of your construction equipment, the process could take up to 60 days depending on what you are getting done. In order to avoid job delays, it is important that you plan ahead. Repairing your equipment machine by machine instead of all at once is one way to avoid these setbacks.
Renting construction equipment is great for people who need equipment short term, but the numbers do not add up to a good investment if you need construction equipment long term. Still, you want to avoid the high cost of purchasing new construction equipment. Refurbishing used construction equipment is a great way to purchase equipment without having a substantial impact on your business’s bottom line. You get to own equipment that runs and looks like new without having to cover the ghastly price tag.
