Real-world air compressor prices from BuyerZone buyers
At BuyerZone we know comparing a wide sampling of prices and features can be the best way to research a future business purchase. To help our users out, we surveyed recent customers to find out what they paid.
Through this process we learned some very interesting things. For instance, rotary screw compressors are considerably more expensive than reciprocating compressors, as these quotes demonstrate. However, in situations where continuous air pressure is needed, rotary compressors are far more suitable.
You can find used compressors at fairly decent prices; if you develop a good relationship with the dealer to cover any necessary repairs, this can be a reasonable way to save some money. However, if your compressor will be used to run essential business processes, it's probably worth paying slightly more to get the warranty and service contracts they typically include.
