Lista Cabinets: Should You Buy New or Used?

As a shopkeeper or warehouse manager, you realize that a properly organized storage system is vital for maintaining efficiency and professionalism. And when it comes to storage, there is no better choice than a Lista Cabinet.

Sturdy, intricately designed and aesthetically pleasing, a Lista Cabinet is the perfect addition to any shop that struggles with organization. And if you're in the market for one, it can be tempting to purchase a used model at a much lower price, although we have found that customers often overpay, particularly in the exuberance of an equipment auction!

Can a used Lista Cabinet provide the same benefits as a brand-new model? Read on to find out.

Lista Cabinets: New vs. Used

An ad for a used Lista Cabinet can be so enticing. But before you make your purchase, it's essential to ask yourself if it's worth the investment.

The short answer is this: maybe.  A used Lista Cabinet does not exactly compare to a new model and can cost you more money in the long run. There are several reasons behind the difference between new and used Lista Cabinets.

Shortened Lifespan

Lista Cabinets are highly durable and long-lasting—one of the reasons they're considered the finest in workspace solutions. No matter how many challenging projects you take on, a sturdy Lista Cabinet will carry your heavy tools and withstand every accidental blow.

A used LISTA cabinet may only become available because it has reached the end of its’s practical lifespan.  LISTA cabinets in a top condition rarely appear in the after-market.

Buying a used Lista Cabinet at the end of its lifespan means you'll likely have to invest in a replacement model sooner rather than later, negating any money you've saved by buying used. You may also find that needed replacement parts for an old model are no longer available from the factory.

Unsightly Damages

In addition to being extremely sturdy and long-lasting, Lista Cabinets are also famous for their sleek edges and pleasing designs. Buying a used cabinet means it may come dented or scuffed before it even enters your shop. While this may not affect its functionality, it lessens the aesthetic value that a new model can bring.

Lack of Personalization

One of the most significant advantages of buying a brand-new Lista Cabinet is that you can personalize it to fit your shop's unique needs. By buying new, you can take charge of every aspect of your new storage system.

Choose the size and number of drawers, whether or not to add specialized compartments, the color of your unit and more. Plus, add a butcher block or ribbed mat, depending on your shop's needs. With a used Lista Cabinet, you won't have the same custom options as you will when you buy new.

Enhance Your Shop with a Brand New Lista Cabinet

Overall, Lista Cabinets are better and longer-lasting when you buy them new. Plus, you can personalize your unit to maximize efficiency and organization in your workspace. Additionally, original owners of new LISTA cabinets benefit from the factory lifetime warranty.
