CERTIFIED USED EQUIPMENT: CONFIDENCE. SAVINGS. COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE.

Reducing operating costs is a constant battle you fight to stay competitive. Because used equipment can offer you more features at lower cost, it is often worth considering.

But buying used requires an investment of another kind—legwork. To be confident in your purchase you have to shop the options—which can be many. Once you’ve got a list of possibilities, the real evaluation begins—doing inspections, getting some stick time, negotiating warranties and arranging transportation. It’s a lot of boxes to check, and you may still feel like you are taking on too much risk.  Fortunately, there is an alternative. Certified Used (or Pre-owned) equipment programs can check some of the boxes for you—plus offer even more ways to lower cost and increase confidence.

CERTIFICATION PACKAGES REDUCE YOUR RISK.

Certified programs require equipment to meet a standardized set of criteria and back up performance with a warranty, extended protection or both. If you’re considering a Certified Used machine, look for these advantages:

MORE SAVINGS BEYOND PRICE.

Savings on used equipment don’t come just from the lower purchase price. When you consider the taxes, insurance, or interest charged on financed purchases, the cost difference between used and new is even greater. Telematics data can also help increase fuel efficiency and alert you to problems before they become costly failures—reducing your overall operating costs.

MORE MACHINE FOR THE MONEY.

Certified Used equipment gives you the opportunity to get more machine features than you may be able to purchase new. Advanced hydraulics, comfortable cab, integrated technology such as grade control—you can expand your choices without expanding your budget.

Cat® Certified Used offers equipment that has completed a 140-point inspection, any needed service with genuine Cat parts, up-to-date maintenance, a Caterpillar warranty and telematics. Discover the competitive advantage a Cat Certified Used machine can add to your fleet.
