Buying Used: Drum Roller Edition

Updated: Jan 13

There are plenty of benefits to buying used equipment and we have some great cost effective options in stock that are perfect for construction, roadwork or even small contractors.


Why buy used?

  • Good quality equipment from a reputable source can save you significantly over the purchase of new equipment. If you're budget is limited, but you still need to expand your fleet, a used piece is a great way to get the job done. Our technicians are VCE Factory Trained and complete rigorous inspections and tests to evaluate the performance and condition of the equipment.

  • While new equipment loses value quickly, as much as 20-30% within the first year alone, used equipment avoids this steep depreciation.

  • Some new equipment purchases have longer lead times. Purchasing used alleviates this wait so you can get right to work
