What to Expect When You Buy a Used CNC Router for Sale

In terms of efficiency and capability, CNC woodworking machines are the most useful type of woodworking equipment. Thankfully, industrial grade CNC equipment has a long lifespan, and is often resold in used condition for less than it originally cost. While you cannot argue with the cost savings, there are differences between buying a new CNC router and a pre-owned CNC router besides cost. One must be aware of these differences to make a smart purchase.

Warranty

If a pre-owned machine is almost new, it may be under warranty, which is sometimes the case with equipment that has been repossessed during foreclosure. However, because the manufacturer’s warranty typically expires in about a year, most pre-owned equipment does not have a warranty. Although warranties are a form of investment protection, they do not protect the purchase in the long run. If you are concerned about the reliability of secondhand equipment, purchasing an industrial grade used CNC router for sale is the best option.

Service Plan

Some manufacturers offer a service plan that extends through, and sometimes beyond the warranty period. When the equipment needs maintenance, or has a repair issue, the manufacturer’s technicians spring into action. While such a service plan is convenient, its long-term value is negligible. Many industrial machines experience no problems in the first few years of operation. By the time they do experience a problem, the manufacturer’s service plan is usually expired.

However, because the customer is accustomed to having the manufacturer handle maintenance, he or she often lets the manufacturer handle repairs, and often pays dearly for doing so. The service rates of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are significantly higher than the rates of most independent maintenance services. If you buy a used CNC router for sale, you will probably use an independent service from the beginning, unless you perform maintenance in-house.

Lifespan

Pre-owned CNC woodworking machines obviously have less life remaining than new equipment, but the question is exactly how much life remains. If you buy equipment from an amateur seller, or at a liquidation auction, it is usually tough to say. The equipment probably has not been reconditioned, and there may be no information about how the equipment was previously operated. The easiest way to remove these uncertainties is to buy equipment from a professional seller who performs reconditioning and provides information about the equipment’s past.
