Refurbished Fax Machines
Rebuilt fax machines are as good as new
If you can't really afford to shell out the coin for a brand new fax machine, or you just don't want to, you may want to look into getting yourself a good refurbished model for a considerably lower price. These machines are basically previously owned fax machines that have had their parts replaced where needed. They're usually taken apart, cleaned and then put back together. The machines are then thoroughly tested and inspected to make sure they're in excellent working order before being put back on the market. These fax machines could be units that have only been used for a few months or they could be devices that have been used for a few years, but with low usage. Some of them are repossessed machines.
If the fax machine is a newer model, it's possible that it hasn't yet needed any repairs or new parts. It may have just been cleaned up, but it has still gone through the testing and inspecting process. You can usually find refurbished stand alone fax machines along with multifunction models. There shouldn't be any problem in finding your favorite brands of fax machines either, as all of the major manufacturers usually sell refurbished units to the public.
When looking for a refurbished model, you still have to find out what type of fax machine is best suited for you, by comparing their different features and capabilities. These machines should come with all the bells and whistles that a brand-new machine has. One of the main factors in finding a good refurbished machine is making sure that it comes with a good warranty or guarantee. The manufacturer and / or store that is selling the machine should stand behind their product even if it's not brand new. However, since the machine will be sold at a lower cost, it is expected that the length of the warranty won't be as long as it would be on a new model.
It might be important to note that a lot of rental fax machines are refurbished models; even so, they are generally well looked after, especially if the rental company is taking care of the repairs on the unit.
