The Benefits of Refurbished Woodwork Machinery

January 30, 2019 2 min read

At Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery Ltd, you’ll find a wide range of high-quality and professional refurbished woodwork machinery. Our service can be tailored to suit your specific needs, so don’t hesitate to get into contact with us.

When you’re looking to purchase woodwork machinery, choosing a refurbished item carries with it a host of benefits over buying something new. Here are just a few to consider.

Environmental friendliness

The process of manufacturing a brand new woodworking machine is a costly one, environmentally speaking. From the materials used in the construction to the energy required to power the machines that build it. Few people consider the true environmental impact of buying new.

With refurbished woodwork machinery, however, you’re using something that has already been made. Rather than precious resources being used in order to make a machine specifically for your needs, you’re using one that has already given a previous owner reliable service. That means it has paid off its “environmental cost”.


Buying any piece of machinery brand new is going to subject you to depreciation. That’s true of anything, but particularly woodwork machinery. When you buy new, you’re likely going to lose a large portion of the purchase price should you ever come to sell it. And that purchase price in itself may not be so easy to manage – brand new woodworking machinery is very expensive, especially for smaller and newer businesses.

Buying a refurbished item means that someone else has already taken the hit on depreciation. It’s a much more manageable way to invest in high-quality woodwork machinery. Should you decide you want to sell it on at a later date, you also stand a much better chance of getting more of your money back.

Reliability and longevity

Many machines aren’t subject to rigorous quality inspections when they’re being manufactured new. It’s not unheard of for even the most expensive machines from premium brands to display unacceptable manufacturing errors and provide very poor reliability. When you buy a refurbished unit, however, you get the peace of mind that this is not going to happen.

That’s because the machine has been thoroughly examined by a qualified and experienced technician. If any repairs or upgrades are necessary, they’re seen to with a view to providing the machine with many more years of useful life. With our service, it’s even possible to tailor the refurbishment in line with your specific requirements.
