Now [contractors] can sell equipment they don't need anymore, and buy the parts or tools they do need from another contractor.
Armstrong, British Columbia (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Need a compressor by 6 p.m.? A furnace by Friday? A cooler to freeze 62 turkeys over the summer? Well, there’s a website for that.
Jim Schwarz has been a contractor in the refrigeration industry for nearly 30 years when he decided there should be an easier way for his clients and fellow contractors to buy and sell used commercial equipment. That’s how he got the idea for RECONequipment.net, an online marketplace for commercial refrigeration equipment, electrical supplies, tools, trades vehicles, and HVAC (heat, venting, and air-conditioning) equipment. The online commercial equipment marketplace launched early November 2012.
“For contractors, it’s one-stop shopping,” said Schwarz. “Now they can sell equipment they don’t need anymore, and buy the parts or tools they do need from another contractor.”
Plus, RECONequipment.net has integrated the handy uShip tool to instantly find a courier and a quote so contractors don’t have to think about how to get that part or tool to their door.
Contractors aren’t the only ones in commercial equipment matchmaking heaven. The site also gives restaurant and shop owners a way to meet the cooler or freezer they’ve been searching for.
“Now they have an option. Before, their only option was to buy new and that’s expensive when you’re starting out,” said Schwarz, who runs RECON Equipment and continues to find, fix and build customized commercial refrigeration equipment from his warehouse in the Spallumcheen Industrial Park.
Schwarz often caters to clients across BC—including Vancouver, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, Merritt, and Kamloops. Online, RECONequipment.net gives contractors, shop owners, and restaurateurs throughout British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan the chance to buy and sell a range of affordable quality equipment in just minutes.
