Why Equipment Cost is Not The Most Important Factor When Buying a New Machine

So Many of us focus on the one thing that is right in front of us when purchasing a new commercial washer. The PRICE! We are forgetting the most important thing when making this ever important decision. Cost of ownership of that machine at 5 years, 10 years and 15 years. New equipment isn’t just going to last for the first 5 years when many large repairs are covered under warranty. You will inevitably have to repair your new machine in its lifetime. So many times we overlook that cost into our decision. So many brands are competitive on initial purchase price of machines. But big names like Unimac and Speed Queen are set to make huge returns on repairs. Cost of parts for these machines has gotten out of control over the last decade. Many parts for the Unimac machines cost two to four times as much as there competitors. For example a Unimac controller is $3704.70, this same part with a B&C or Fagor washer which has the same features or more costs one third the price. No days manufacturers all source similar parts from the few manufacturers out there. So don’t be fooled into purchasing a machine that will charge you two to four times as much for the same part. Call us today to see why we sell the brands we do. Honest and fair pricing upfront and in the future. See the chart below to compare many parts on a Unimac to our Fagor and B&C machines.
