daytoncontractors It depends on the item. New for things prone to breaking that are expensive because then you get a warranty and or money back. Used for small items that are fairly inexpensive, robust and easily replaced.

A Touch Of Glass It's definitely worth the investment to equip yourself with everything you might need. You can charge for the supplies, and it will be straight profit.

Charmz I also buy new as it is better to use, plus the warranty.

Jeanannesunny I have been buying all in new and branded equipment's. I think in the future I will be making as many things as I can.. Not only do I get more experience I completely know how to maintain my equipment and repair without having to pay anyone else.

I buy new equipment

Since I don't do only residential cleaning, most of my equipment is relatively inexpensive. The most expensive piece of equipment I use is a 16' foot aluminum ladder that folds up and I can put in the back of my SUV.

SquareInch Usually go with new. Less hassle.

Lorster I buy new,there are usually service warranties and who wants someone elses abused equipment.After all this is cleaning equipment.
However, if a church or someone had a floor machine and THEY were the first owner and they are selling it because they don't use it often.Maybe.
But if a school was selling off their old floor machines. NO WAY.Those things get abused and our workhorses every night.
So, consider the source if you are trying to save some bucks.

Merle West I got a credit card with no interest for 12 months. Bought a 2 vac 3 stage 220 pps porty for $ 2,200. Paid them 183 per month now its paid off and the jobs I do are mostly all profit!

intellg Ebay or trading media is very helpful for old or new item. It better to review your product in stores and buy them from online portal where you can save money.

Preston Cleaners Buying second hand is fine, this does depend on the condition ofcourse

BusyBee I would say new one is the way to go, if you dont like it you can always return it, a used one? can brake you have no warranty, I've already learned my lesson and new one would be the best choice
