You Don't Need A "NEW" Generator - Buying a Used Genset

When searching for a genset, you may not need to buy brand new. A used genet can be a perfect complement to your business.

In an increasingly large segment of the commercial industry, even a short power outage can be devastating for your business. That’s why it’s a good idea to make sure you’ve got a quality generator backing you up in the event of an emergency.
We understand the thought of buying a new industrial generator can be daunting and might even give you a case of sticker shock once you start looking at available models. So before you completely dismiss the idea, remember that “new” doesn’t necessarily mean “better” and buying a used genset might just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Used Can be Better than New
The most obvious benefit in buying a used generator is the overall cost savings. However, saving a buck isn’t going to do you any good if you’re buying a used piece of junk, right? That’s why Generator Source ensures that each used generator has been thoroughly tested for quality and constitution.
We put every one of the used gensets we buy through a rigorous 31-point inspection -- checking everything from belts and fluids to heaters and hoses. This process ensures that you’re getting the highest quality product and the most bang for your buck.
Another thing to consider, is a lot of “used” generators were used as backup power supply for the previous owner. So you may buy a “used” generator that only has a few hours of actual use. That’s the equivalent of buying a used car that only has a few thousand miles on it. So yes it’s considered used, but it may be relatively new in terms of actual use.  
Customization Is Always an Option
When you invest your time and money in buying a used genset, you don’t have to be content with what you’re getting out of the box. Our skilled technicians can turn one of our used generators into a finely tuned addition to your business.
Need to change the voltage on a certain unit? Need a digital upgrade? We can make personalized changes to most units that we have on site.
Maintenance Is the Real Thing
Once you’ve made the choice to equip your business with a high-quality used generator, the real difference is going to be made in the way you treat it in the weeks, months and years to come. Fortunately, Generator Source can help you schedule ongoing maintenance that works for you. This will keep your used generator humming happily for years to come.

Your Search Begins and Ends with DSS

We understand the value of a backup generator, but we also understand that your budget isn’t endless. That’s why we take pride in providing a wide array of used gensets that are guaranteed to suit your needs.
