A great finance deal is good, but does it matter at the end of the day?
With variations in finance interest often amounting to the equivalent a cup of coffee a day, there’s no need for your equipment purchase decision to be dictated by the “deal.”
When you’re digging for a living, all that matters are keeping your customers happy. According to Matt Peters of Truck N Track Excavations, the best way to achieve that objective is having tough, reliable machines that keep on going.
Proven, tough engineering
“I looked at a lot of machines but found the only one that came up to the performance and comfort I needed was a Takeuchi ”, Matt recalls. Looking for value, Matt didn’t hesitate in buying a Takeuchi TB 250 five tonne excavator that had clocked 5,000 hours.
“I was happy to buy the Takeuchi machine with 5,000 hours on it because I knew the major components would last a lot longer than this, and when needing replacement, the cost and will be minimal.
“Some of my colleagues have wondered why I went ahead with the TB 250 purchase when there are so many apparently attractive finance options available for new gear.
“They eventually saw the sense of my decision when I explained that to have this amazing performance and productivity of the Takeuchi machine”, Matt said.
The bottom line
“It’s false economy to let your buying decision to be based on price and finance. A Takeuchi machine that’s been properly maintained will last well beyond the end of your finance, letting you pocket more money by ensuring minimum downtime”, Matt concluded.
