Are you in need of waste/recycling equipment, but are running low on funds?

Renting your equipment has financial benefits to your bottom line, but there’s an additional step you can take to save even more money: rent refurbished equipment. Refurbished equipment is previously owned equipment that’s been restored as closely as possible to its original manufactured state. This includes cosmetics, mechanics, electrical components, hydraulic components, and anything else that may be needed. Refurbished equipment is a great option for those who need a more affordable piece of equipment without compromising quality. Quality equipment at a discounted rate- seems like a no-brainer, right? Well, not exactly. The vendor that you decide to rent your equipment from is extremely important, so it’s crucial that you do your due diligence to ensure that you end up with a quality machine.

Trusting the wrong vendor can lead to numerous consequences, with repairs required frequently. You may be wondering, “If you rent your equipment, the vendor is usually on the hook for maintenance and repairs, so isn’t the risk on them?” Perhaps financially in some ways, but not performance-wise. You’re not going to be very happy if your compactor or baler breaks down every few weeks. That’s going to lead to waste/recycling overflow and essentially defeats the purpose of using a compactor or baler in the first place. When considering a refurbished compactor or baler, make sure that you ask your chosen vendor about their refurbishment process. Compactor and baler refurbishment programs can vary widely from one equipment provider to the next. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for some vendors to call any used piece of equipment with a paint job “refurbished equipment.” You’re going to want to ensure that their refurbishing program is more than just cosmetic. To avoid receiving unsatisfactory equipment, it’s extremely important that you understand what refurbishing means to your chosen vendor. Some things to consider are structural integrity, cylinders, power unit, ANSI safety compliance, and of course, overall function.

At Compactor Rentals of America, our refurbished compactors and balers are inspected and evaluated before the process begins. Our structural experts identify and replace any steel required utilizing our in-house fab shop, including body, ram, floor, and understructure on self-contained units. Our finaling crews rebuild or replace the hydraulic cylinder(s), and completely evaluate the power unit. We repair or replace the power units to factory specifications, and replace all hoses and controls before sending it to the paint shop. Getting your refurbished equipment through our professional team ensures that every component of the machine is in good working order. At Compactor Rentals of America, we never compromise quality and performance for the price.

When you rent a refurbished compactor or baler from us, it won’t just look “good as new,” it will perform like it too.
