Running an office, business or home on a tight budget means that a certain amount of cutting corners is called for. If you are on the lookout for an office coffee machine , have you taken a look at used coffee machines ? Usually there is not much of a difference between used coffee machines and off-the-shelf models, except that the previous kind has been owned by someone else earlier. One major difference is in the matter of warranty or return policy. A new office coffee machine would have some kind of coverage as long as it has been sourced from the manufacturer or authorized dealer.
You must check what kind of coverage the used coffee machines on offer have. Depending on how roughly or gently the machine has been used the need for replacement of parts and/or maintenance work would definitely arise over a period of time. As technology progresses, businesses grow, and competition gets fiercer in the industry, the range and type of office coffee machines are becoming more diverse. So those considering furnishing their office with a new office coffee machine are faced with fair amount of decision making.
To decide on the size of the office coffee machine you want — whether you need a single serve, two cups, four cups or more — you really need to calculate how many people would need to be served at a go and how many cups would need to be served in a day. Do you want an automatic coffee machine, one with alerts when cleaning is required or when coffee is ready? Your best bet would be to buy one that requires the least maintenance without compromising on quality.
It would be hazardous to try and predict how long your used coffee machines will give trouble free service. As long as no critical parts have been replaced and you use it with proper care, they should not breakdown easily. You could also look for a manufacturer who offers a variety of options for office coffee machines – size, daily cup capacity, drinks selections, fresh milk and cash payment systems. There should be something to suit your business.
