Is a Pre-owned UPS System right for you?

Posted by Isabelle Plautz on

The secondhand shopping market grew by nearly 15% in 2021, this number marking the highest growth rate the industry has ever seen. People and businesses have begun to regularly buy used items for a number of reasons, some of the more popular reasons being that it is affordable and eco-friendly. We’ve even seen this growth in the critical power industry as more ‘pre-owned’ UPS systems are being sold and purchased. A pre-owned UPS system is often the right solution for a lot of businesses, could it be the right solution for your business?

What defines a UPS system as ‘Pre-Owned’?

Before we jump into why a used UPS unit may be the best solution for your company, let’s understand why a UPS system may be considered pre-owned.

There are a few characteristics that qualify a unit as being re-sold pre-owned, those being:

  • The UPS unit was only used as a demonstration unit
  • The UPS unit has very minor exterior damage
  • The UPS was previously used and is still a working viable backup system

Many of these pre-owned units are gently used and are often a great investment. Because not only are these units professionally tested and confirmed to perform, but also you can get these pre-owned systems at a significant discount.

Why a pre-owned unit may be the perfect fit for a company?

There are two main reasons why a business would want to buy a pre-owned UPS system.

  1. They only need the unit temporarily
    1. For example: if the facility the business is in is not permanent.
  2. Have limited access to capital.
    1. For example: if your business can not afford or does not want to spend a large amount on a brand-new backup power system.

While every business may have its own reason for buying a pre-owned battery backup system, the two listed above are often the leading reason.
