New or Used?

Encounter a defunct industrial part recently? The internet may just be your answer. Used parts are listed on sites like eBay and Amazon as well as a few other websites. A bit of research from your PC or smartphone can reveal options for reducing your down-time. Are you or aren;y you open to used parts?

Used Parts

Most of us think of ebay when we envision completing our collection of baseball cards, finding a rare coin, or maybe that long lost cd from your favorite band, but the fact is that eBay provides professionals with access to used parts located throughout the country and around the world. Ever-changing mechanical and electronic technology can phase out or virtually eliminate industrial parts from the manufacturer's catalogs annually.

Sellers have been using this to their advantage by harvesting and listing obsolete parts on eBay for years. This is a win-win situation for buyers and sellers alike. Their signature feedback system makes buying these obsolete parts a gamble worth taking in many cases. This is especially true if you have your back against the wall with machine downtime and a low budget.

In my opinion, this is North America's greatest forum for used and obsolete parts for many reasons. The ease of use, its world renowned branding, its feedback system, and the fact that users can open an account within minutes to either buy or sell any type of industrial part. It gives the industrial community a viable option in regard to repairing obsolete equipment without breaking the bank.
