    Best site for used commercial espresso machine?

    Am in need of finding a place to locate a reliable used or rebuilt commercial machine and not having much luck on the web. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks a lot.

    Ebay is great for getting used equipment, but ebay is also great for getting a 150lb paperweight. I service all types of machines but even I know when it is time to tell the customer that it is not worth the time and effort to revive what they bought on ebay. Sure they picked it up for $800, 1/8th of the cost of it new. But leaks like the Titanic, it can't remember it's settings and most of the parts on it are OEM. When I am done they could have bought a new one with a warranty.

    Be very careful when buying on ebay. If they start an auction at $1.00 for a machine that normally lists for thousands you could get burned. I know, I see it everyday when they bring it to me!
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    ebay

    i did ok on ebay few times. starting from 1usd is safe for the seller, because ebay has plenty of users and the price will climb up to a correct price. also check the sellers evaluation. that is very important. expect a little bit investment into your purchase and thats it... easy....

    Go to your local restaurants and ask them who they use to work on their espresso machines. Chances are that guy will have both new and used machines. You can buy on eBay as well, just make sure you have someone to recondition it.

    You can get other used equipment - but the espresso machine is something that you should get new. It will be your workhorse (hopefully) and best to start out with a new one.
