Choose a Robot Sup­pli­er Wisely 

When you pur­chase a robot from an auc­tion or pri­vate own­er there are often addi­tion­al, unfore­seen charges.

How do you avoid all these extras that con­tribute to your end cost? Find a sup­pli­er you can trust that offers ful­ly refur­bished robot sys­tems. Robots​.com remains upfront about prices. We detail every­thing in your quote and include tech­ni­cal sup­port and a full warranty.

Why pur­chase a robot blind­ly? You can avoid cost­ly mis­takes by con­sult­ing a robot pro­fes­sion­al through­out the deci­sion-mak­ing process. Experts will make sure you are cal­cu­lat­ing your ROI cor­rect­ly and help you deter­mine which type of robot offers the best solu­tion for your appli­ca­tion.

Robots​.com’ robot spe­cial­ists offer advice and guid­ance to our cus­tomers. We will help you find the most cost-effec­tive, suit­able solu­tion for your business.

Don’t Over­look Refurbishment

Pur­chas­ing ful­ly refur­bished robots pays off. Has your refur­bished robot been test­ed, cleaned, and repaint­ed? If not, you may be set­ting your­self up for dis­as­ter. The robots avail­able from auc­tions and pri­vate own­ers are often on the verge of break­down, poor­ly repaired, or dam­aged.

Robots​.com has a thor­ough recon­di­tion­ing process that we do in-house. Each robot pass­es through a deep clean, inspec­tion on all parts, ensure func­tion­al­i­ty and per­for­mance, look for any stress cracks or abnor­mal­i­ties and is fresh­ly paint­ed before it goes on the market. 

Ask About Warranties

The best way to make sure you get your mon­ey’s worth out of an indus­tri­al robot is with a war­ran­ty. This ensures a con­nec­tion with the sell­er that lasts longer than the date of sale. Still, war­ranties are rare, espe­cial­ly when it comes to refur­bished robot sys­tems.

Robots​.com offers full war­ranties based on the cus­tomers requirements. 

Nev­er Under­es­ti­mate Tech­ni­cal Support

Robot main­te­nance needs and repairs can be con­fus­ing and expen­sive — not to men­tion the neg­a­tive effect a downed robot has on pro­duc­tion lines. This is yet anoth­er rea­son to choose your robot sup­pli­er with care — seek out tech­ni­cal sup­port.

Unlike robots from auc­tions or pri­vate sell­ers, Robots​.com is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing our cus­tomers through­out their robot sys­tem’s life. We offer free phone sup­port for the life­time of the robot. Robots​.com’ skilled staff is avail­able, should you need any on-site robot ser­vic­ing. We also offer a wide array of replace­ment parts.

We hope this helps guide you to the right type of robot sup­pli­er. Our team works hard to sat­is­fy our cus­tomers and pro­tect them from mak­ing mis­takes that will great­ly affect them lat­er down the road.
