Replacing Used Laundry Equipment
Whether you manage a laundromat or an on-premise laundry, sooner or later you will have to replace your used laundry equipment. “Where will my used laundry parts go?” you think to yourself. In this case, you will be presented two of the most reasonable choices among several others.
Firstly, you could shop at your local distributor for used laundry equipment and look for the equipment that will provide trade-in value. You should make sure that most of the equipment you get would be able to contribute a lot. More importantly yet, you must compare how much they are able to contribute with how much the new equipment being sold would cost. After some time, you will come to realize that the highest trade-in value will not always be a gauge for deciding the most reasonable choice for your business. Also implied here is your need to find out whether or not the presented package is inclusive of service, warranties, and whatever other resources you will need for the purchase to be a smart one.
Secondly, you may act as a private seller of your used laundry equipment. This choice comes with its own strengths and weaknesses. The clear disadvantage is that the implementation of this option entails more expending of time and effort. Other than that, putting up classified ads, whether in print or online, will cost you even more. The benefit to putting up your own laundry parts for sale is that you will definitely earn higher revenue, which you can later put to use for new equipment. In the end, economics will once again come into question. With the cost of classified listing for the equipment and the decision of the sale price on the line, assess if the monetary returns you will gain will be greater than the value of accepting a hasty trade-in. Is the increase in profit minute? More importantly but less pondered upon, what value have I put to time? At the end of all this, it is only a decision one must make regarding his own business, but if you come to ask yourself these questions, you will find an answer that will encourage your confidence.
All things considered, diligence is a character every business needs. When you check out several, inquire of them. Asking knows no bounds. A familiar phrase rings out, “ask, and you shall receive.” The commercial laundry business makes no joke out of this saying. This guarantees that you get the best the industry has to offer.
