You have three things to forget about the misconceptions you may have about purchasing used electrical equipment. One, forget that used electrical equipment is used. Well, it is OK to know that it is used, but think of it more as a refurbished piece of equipment, which is likely what it is. Not many retailers sell old electrical equipment that has dings and breaks in it, and when they do they generally will highlight this in the listing for such equipment. So forget about thinking of this equipment as used and instead consider it slightly broken in.
Two, forget that used electrical equipment is of any less value than new equipment. It of course will be less expensive when paying for it than new equipment because it was opened and perhaps even used. But aside from that, the value should be about the same. You just are getting a very good deal at an awesome price for it most likely. So embrace this, and do not feel like you are sacrificing quality to save a few bucks.
Three, forget that used electrical equipment is junk. Lots of great used electrical equipment is accessible from retailers, from Ppe equipment to Square d transformers to other brands of used transformers. Say for instance you wanted a Siemens panel board, a Siemens electrical panel or a Siemens busway. You could pick up a used one that performed just as well as a new one, without the higher cost or the decrease in value.Share This : by
