PRE-OWNED FITNESS EQUIPMENT
WHY BUY PRE-OWNED FITNESS EQUIPMENT?
The most obvious answer is to save MONEY. Much like with used cars, you can benefit by getting a piece of equipment that might normally be out of the budget for a Fraction of the cost. These days for example, a New High Caliber Treadmill could cost about 5 to 7 Thousand Dollars with all the Bells And Whistles. If you get the same treadmill that is previously owned and only a few years old, then your money has more buying power. So unless you are a Five Star Resort and must keep up with the Jones’s then the decision is a no brainer. The part that gets complicated is who to buy from and am I getting good value or just a piece of junk. There is a lot of equipment out there and while an experienced professional can tell the difference between a good deal and a bad one, the average customer does not know what to choose. Below I have listed some things to look for when making a purchase.
We start by checking all functions and look for any issues that need to be addressed. We look for wear or damage that could affect its future performance.
Any worn or damaged parts will automatically be replaced. The Running Surface will also be replaced in 90% of the cases. The only reason we would not replace it is if the unit has recently been refurbished or it is a newer unit that has a good Running Surface.
Any damaged cosmetic pieces will also be replaced. This does not include minor scratches, dents, or any other signs of normal usage.
We will always provide our refurbished units with a warranty to back our work.
WHERE DOES OUR PRE-OWNED FITNESS EQUIPMENT COME FROM?
Thanks to our industry contacts we are able to purchase high end commercial fitness equipment and offer it to our customers at a fraction of its original cost. All equipment is refurbished by replacing all of the wear and tear parts which show excessive use by its previous owner.
We generally purchase from Country Clubs, Resorts, and Hotels. The reason that we like these Facilities for our Pre-Owned Equipment Purchases is because in most cases these Facilities replace their equipment every 3 to 5 years and they usually have some kind of Regular Maintenance being provided. That ensures that we are getting equipment with the latest technology that is not beaten up by a Gym environment.
We do also buy from the Hardcore Gyms as well but usually use that equipment for export out of the country where they would be more widely accepted.
As Is Condition Equipment:
While we rarely sell equipment in As Is Condition, the term is used for equipment that is in working order but has little to no warranty as well as little to no replacement parts installed. In most cases the equipment is picked up from one location, cleaned up and resold with minimal care or concern to its future reliability. This option is not recommended.
Pre-Owned equipment is a term that we use to describe our units that are sold without the need for any extensive repairs or cosmetic resurfacing. In most cases they are purchased in very good condition and need very little to enhance their appearance or performance. They are usually well maintained equipment in low use facilities. Our Policy is to replace any damaged parts or cosmetic parts and offer them for sale at a very good price point.
Refurbished Equipment describes units that are in very good exterior condition but need replacement parts in order to work and look its best. We replace any cosmetic parts that are broken or show excessive wear. In addition, any Wear Parts or Damaged Parts are automatically replaced to ensure a long lasting reliable operation. When purchasing this type of Equipment from our Company, you can expect a very good condition unit that will impress your Members as well as perform without issues for many years.
Our Remanufacturing Process is meant to give each unit a fresh New Look and feel so that your members have the impression that your Facility has purchased NEW Equipment. We disassemble the entire unit and remove all parts from the Frame. The Frame is Sandblasted and Powder Coated as it was when it was originally built. Once the newly Refinished Frame is completed, we install some original parts and some NEW parts as needed for optimal performance. This type of Equipment is delivered to your Facility in like NEW Condition.
