Used Woodworking Machinery Suppliers Put Their Best Foot Forward

If you are shopping for woodworking machinery at discounted prices, you probably know a lot about the type of equipment you need, but how much do you know about used woodworking machinery suppliers from whom you might buy it?

Like other types of companies, used woodworking machinery suppliers put their best foot forward, and only reveal things that make them seem reputable. Many of them are reputable, but some simply fail to live up to the self-billing.

If you need help deciding whether you should buy equipment from a certain seller, you will be interested in the points below. Any seller of pre-owned woodworking machinery that has the following characteristics is probably not the best one from which to buy.

No Physical Business Address

Sure, an honest Joe could have just started an equipment reselling business out of his garage, but the lack of a true business address poses a problem in addition to the potential illegitimacy of the venture: the seller doesn’t have a reconditioning facility where equipment is inspected, reconditioned, tested, and then tested again under rigorous standards.

Granted, a person has to start his or her business from somewhere, but you do not want to invest in a piece of pre-owned machinery that has not been reconditioned.

Bad Record at the Better Business Bureau

The Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) website is a virtual repository for complaints against businesses. While it is rare for a company never to receive a complaint, customer friendly businesses resolve complaints quickly. If you find an equipment seller has unresolved complaints hanging around in its BBB file, you should shop for used woodworking machinery at discounted prices with a different seller. Otherwise, the next unresolved complaint might be yours.

Won’t Allow Testing or Inspection

It is hard to think of why reputable, used woodworking machinery suppliers would not allow prospective customers to test and inspect sale equipment. At the least, most sellers will send you a video of the machinery in operation, and provide as many photographs as you request. A seller that seems as if it wants to keep you in the dark about a machine’s operation and state of wear should be passed over immediately.
