Why Buy Some Refurbished Products Instead Of New Ones

By Keren Kipfer

If you’re thinking about starting a business, especially one involved in any type of mass production or mail order, there are actually quite a number of ways to cut costs on items that you will be using every day. Consider some of the following cost-cutting tips to help you spend less and keep more of the profits you are trying so hard to earn.

Generally, a new business needs many things, from assembly line equipment to office supplies to packaging supplies to computers. Whenever it is possible, it is a good idea to think about buying a used instead of going all out on those expensive new products in the market. Refurbished items such as computers and heavy-duty equipment are always less costly, but most of the time, the quality is still high. Do some research about all of the items, particularly mechanical items, which you can purchase used.

Office furnishings are also one of the many other items that can be purchased at a lower cost if you purchase it used. There are tons of sources for finding used or even free office furnishings. Desks, tables, lamps, bookshelves and other furnishings can be found on, in the Penny Saver or classified ads of the local paper. Also look for garage and yard sales where the ad lists office items and you can really save a bundle.

Having an id coder or id printer, such as a Domino printer, an Imaje coder or VideoJet coder, is probably a pretty important part of your business if you need to add serial numbers or other codes to every product. However buying a new coder can be quite expensive, so your best bet is to find a product id company that sells quality used coders at the lowest price available. These companies also can refurbish a non-working coder if you happen to have one that is broken so instead of spending your money on a new printer, think about simply having your coder repaired.

You can also purchase some high-quality, lower-cost inks and make-up fluids from these product ID companies, mind you. Because ink is essential, but very expensive if you buy it directly from a manufacturer, finding a product ID company that sells ink can translate into huge savings. These companies can produce generic versions of VideoJet ink, Willett ink, Domino ink and as well as many more top brands.

There are many other ways to save you some money as well, such as considering a location that is less expensive or perhaps smaller than you initially planned. Printing costs are important and recurrent, so be sure to find a good, but inexpensive printing service and stick to black and white printing and paper products in typical sizes. Printers charge more for odd sizes when you print.
