My friends…buying a used c-arm from an online auction is simply rolling the dice. Each director of radiology or decision maker that we speak with, their number one objective is to find the lowest priced used c-arm. No matter where it is coming from. But as the saying goes, “When something seems too good to be true, it probably is.” A perfect example of this would be buying a used c-arm on Ebay. True, you can pick a used c-arm for a lot less than purchasing it from a reputable company like ours. A company that stands behind the products it sells and fully inspects every single one. However, there are several things that you would need to consider when buying a used c-arm. For example, one of our customers found a used OEC 9800 c-arm on ebay for 47K. Wow! What an amazing deal, right? Well not really, because he ended up buying a c-arm with significant mechanical problems. You see, you never really know what you are going to get when purchasing a c-arm from an auction. The bottom line is that you would be buying someone else’s headache.
Reasons why your should NEVER buy use c-arm from an Online Auction.
1) There is no warranty on the used c-arm.
2) The used c-arm has not been refurbished.
3) You cannot inspect the used c-arm.
4) You have no idea if the used c-arm is damaged at all.
