BENEFITS OF USED OPTHALMOLOGY EQUIPMENT
Used ophthalmology equipment has certain advantages:
- Lower purchase price
- The reimbursement procedure is the same for the old as well as new product
- User equipment carries the same tax advantages as new equipment.
Because of these advantages, the business of used medical equipment is growing up so fast that certain items are normally out of stock. The major challenge these companies need to face is to find a product to sell.
Things To Consider When Buying /Selling Refurbished Eye Equipment
If you are buying any used eye equipment make sure you buy it from a reputable company and examine the product before buying it. As the price of the new equipment is continuously rising there is no problem in buying the used equipment if it works properly. The first and foremost thing you should keep in mind is that you gather information about the company you are buying the product from as well as check the equipment’s properly before buying them.
Even for selling a piece of equipment make sure you know about the company to whom you are selling your equipment and check all the products before selling them so that you don’t get any complaints afterward. If the reputation of your company is once spoiled it is very difficult to earn it back. Therefore, try to avoid such a situation by selling useable and good equipment.
Used Ophthalmology Equipment Dealers
Most of the used equipment dealers buy the equipment from some doctors who go out for this business or are retired. Some dealers buy the pieces of equipment from the auction. The dealers then check the equipment whether it is working properly or not and then they sell it quickly so that they don’t have to hold the inventory. There are some companies who buy the equipment and make some cosmetic improvements before selling them, they do so to avoid any further complaints.
There are certain dealers that go with black marketing; they will say that something is 2 years old whereas it is actually 10 years old. It can all be so shady and unethical. Therefore, you have to be very careful about who you are dealing with.
Many companies have their approach for the refurbished equipment coming directly from the manufacturer to the customer. They develop relations with the manufacturers whose products they sell and offer refurbished pre-owned medical equipment. They then purchase the used medical equipment and return it to the manufacturer’s specifications. Then they resell it with a warranty and service it if required.
Normally, if any customer wants to buy the used equipment from the manufacturer they have to pay the manufacturer some bills just to come out and inspect the equipment. However, companies with good relations with the manufacturer can purchase the parts from them and service the used products themselves. Dealers who sell the used ophthalmology equipment generally offer warranties between 90 days to six months for the products they sell.
Choosing Right Used Eye Equipment Dealer
Most of the companies having relations with some manufacturers do a little advertisement for them. Most of their relations are build with personal references and word of mouth. If you want to buy some used equipment’s ask your family doctor or the doctor you generally refer to about some dealer. If they give you a positive response about them then you can give it a try.
When you get a company recommended by either Google or any other person check out the following details about that company:
- Does it have a professional look
- Ask the dealer about its background
- Look for more references from the company you are planning to buy
- Whether the dealer is knowledgeable and informative about the market
It is important to gather as much information as possible about the company you are dealing with. Make sure that the company is physically present and it’s not just a person using a website and trying to sell out his garbage. It is very important to identify the company properly because sometimes there are many cases where people are been fooled by some websites in which they sell you fake or damaged items. Therefore, be vigilant if you are dealing with someone online.
There are certain things you should look for in the company you are dealing with:
Deal with a company that has the size and the capacity to back up the product.
The company should be willing to give you your money back if you are not satisfied with the product.
The company has good relations with the manufacturer.
The packaging of the products should be nice i.e. when the products are delivered to you it should not look as old and used equipment rather it should look brand new. The package should include accessory items and manuals.
You should have access to the serial numbers and manufacturer dates.
