Here are some straight facts about how to buy used fitness equipment from an interview I had with an industry insider.
These are the tips you should know before you take your wallet out to buy used fitness equipment, following these tips will save you time, energy and money and help to put more money back in your pocked.
For instance make sure the company that you are looking to do business with has been in the used commercial fitness equipment industry for at least three years, preferably five or more years would be ideal.
This can help you to ensure that the company has weathered some financial storms and has the financial solvency to stay afloat.
Besides staying in business for at least five years, make sure that the company has a warehouse facility that is at least 15,000 square feet. This size allows the company to buy large amounts of gym equipment giving the company more leverage to buy at a better price enabling them to sell their exercise equipment at even greater reduced prices.
You will also want to look for a company that also has their own exercise equipment repair service team because you know that they have the staff equipped to meet the original equipment manufacturers specifications on the gym equipment.
Finally call the company and talk to the customer service department, by doing this you get a chance to ask questions of the company and hear a voice behind the company.
When you talk to them also ask to see some references and talk to the companies who have purchased from them in the past. This can enable you to see what type of followup they provide.
You can also check their website for companies who have used their fitness equipment, many companies provide a number of customers on their website that you might be able to contact.
Other suggestions that you may also find helpful is to check craigslist, often there are some individuals and companies who sell their equipment on this website. Just make sure that you do your homework before hand because you don’t want to buy another persons problems.
Today’s economy is tighter than ever but following these secrets on how to buy commercial fitness equipment will give you the ammunition to negotiate a good deal and stay fit at the same time.
