If you’re interested in buying packaging equipment, but you’re on a tight budget, you may be considering purchasing used machines to save some money. You may be apprehensive to do so, however—and that’s likely because you’ve heard some of the common misconceptions about purchasing used machinery. Don’t fret—those misconceptions are just that—myths. Buying used machinery is a great way to save some money and get high quality products at the same time. Learn more about three of the common misconceptions about purchasing used machines, and why you don’t need to worry.

1) The machines won’t last as long as new ones.

The most common misconception is that purchasing used machines puts you in the position of potentially needing to replace those machines sooner than you’d need to had you purchased new machinery. That’s simply not true—at High Performance Packaging, you can trust them to last for many years to come—used machinery doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing durability or quality.

2) You won’t be able to find the name brands you trust.

In the same vein, many people believe that discounted machinery will only be available from lesser known, less trustworthy brand names. Again, this is not true. Used machinery isn’t lower quality, nor is it in worse condition than new machinery. When you purchase used machines from High Performance Packaging, you’ll have access to an inventory of machines from the brands you not only know and trust, but the brands you want to use in your packaging line. You’ll be able to purchase high quality equipment at a lower price than new machines—an ideal option for businesses on a tight budget.

3) The sellers can’t help you if the machine has any problems.

While some sellers may not be able to help you once you take the machine off your hands, that’s not true with us. At HP Packaging, our technicians and support staff are not only there to help you install the machinery if you need, but they can also help teach you and your staff how to use the machines, as well as troubleshoot problems should they arise. Our support staff is proud to have a full working knowledge of the products we sell, thanks to their 10 to 25 years of experience within the field. In addition to offering operator training and troubleshooting, we also offer a preventative maintenance program which can help keep your machinery in top shape, and line start-up help, which means you’ll have an easier time building up your packaging line from scratch.

At HP Packaging, we’re dedicated to helping our customers get not only a great deal, but great equipment and great service. Call today for more information.
