The Benefits of Choosing a Used Air Compressor

Here at Glaston we supply a wide range of reliable air compressors that deliver consistently high performance across a vast range of industries and applications. We also recognise that buying new equipment is a huge investment for a business, that’s why we’re proud to offer an alternative solution.

We have one of the most extensive selections of used air compressors available anywhere in the UK. In this article, we’re going to discuss what to look for when buying a used air compressor, and how they can make significant economic and environmental impacts. Read on to discover the benefits of choosing a used air compressor.

Buying a used air compressor helps to reduce waste & lowers demand for new resources

Buying used is a more environmentally friendly choice, and that’s something your business can shout about. New equipment requires manufacturing, and all the energy consumption, use of resources and excess waste that comes along with it. Buying used negates the need for these processes and waste. Reducing your carbon footprint may be important to your business model, your clients, or both.

With proper maintenance, used air compressors can be just as reliable & effective as new ones

You may be wary of buying a used air compressor. It’s a common misconception that newer equipment is always more reliable than used. If an air compressor is well looked after and maintained, there’s no reason it won’t perform to the same level as a new one. Here at Glaston we have a range of maintenance products and services that will help to prolong the life of your air compressor and keep it running efficiently for a long time.

Glaston’s expertise & access to high quality products allows customers to source reliable used air compressors

For businesses looking for a cost-effective, second-hand air compressor on a temporary or permanent basis, we can provide a solution that’s tailored precisely to your requirements and budget. We stock a comprehensive on-site collection of used air compressor parts, meaning we can make sure any maintenance and repair is turned around quickly, with minimal downtime for your business.

We have a team of highly qualified and experienced used air compressor service engineers operating across the Northwest. They are committed to delivering top quality service, keeping your applications running efficiently and effectively. We also have an online guide to all our air compressor products and services.

Choosing a used air compressor can be a smart financial and environmental decision

As we’ve discussed, the environmental impact of buying a used air compressor is significant – but what about your budget? Used air compressors can be significantly cheaper than new ones, making them a more affordable option for those on a budget. Replacing old or outdated compressors with used equipment can provide your business with considerable year-on-year cost savings. Buying fully refurbished, used air compressors directly from us can stretch your budget further whilst still safe in the knowledge that it’s been expertly serviced and reconditioned by our team of engineers. All our compressed air systems conform to the specified requirements of all ISO8573.1:2001 quality classes.

Our inventory of second-hand air compressors are listed on our website, though this changes continuously. If you are looking for a specific compressor brand, size, or a compressor with a particular function (such as models featuring dryer components), talk to our team. We’ll find out your requirements and budget and find a suitable air compressor.
