Refurbished Vs. Certified Remanufactured

What can I expect with “brand new” fitness equipment?

All Items in this condition are boxed, crated or palletized and come from our warehouse or straight from the manufacturer. All of these products would carry the manufacturer’s warranty.

What can I expect with “as is” fitness equipment?

Investing in a piece of “as is” fitness equipment allows our customers to take advantage of used fitness equipment at heavily discounted prices. Generally these items are sold as a DIY (Do It Yourself) project or to other distributors in the fitness industry. Purchasing “as is” cardio product is only recommended if you know specifics about what you are buying or are technically savvy. Strength equipment on the other hand doesn’t have the level of risk that cardio does and most times will operate perfectly fine without any need for service. We guarantee all “as is” products to be in working condition and will disclose any pertinent information within the advertisement or at the time of sale. Items sold in this condition carry no warranty, or implication of repair by CT Fitness Sales and service LLC, AKA usedfitnesssales.com or the manufacturer.

What can I expect with refurbished fitness equipment?

Chances are if you’re looking for “used” commercial fitness equipment, you’re expecting for it to look used but may have reservations that it will not perform to satisfactory expectations. Each piece of refurbished equipment goes through an extensive inspection, testing and service process to ensure safe and satisfactory operation. Although a limited amount of attention is given to the cosmetics, each refurbished piece of equipment will get our usedfitnesssales.com seal of mechanical approval.
