used FARO scan: buying worldwide or not?

Post by wrangler 17io » Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:26 am

Hello,

I am noob on this forum, searching informations for building scan for my business. I am architect and live in FRANCE.

3 companies were right for me: LEICA, TRIMBLE, and FARO
I have meet all of them in my office or in public meeting. The best would be FARO or TRIMBLE. But TRIMBLE is weight, and a few used proposed on the web.
So I found companies which offer used FARO scan. But I don't know if they are true and serious. Or a fake and I will not see my money. Here are the companies I have found with google:

- DYNAMIC ANALYSIS INSTRUMENTS - Indonesia

- LAND TECH EQUIPMENT - Singapore

- 3D SCANNER STORE - united Kingdom

- 3D SCANNER TECH - Singapore

Or other you can propose. Thanks

It it is too good to be true, stay away.

All of the manufacturers seem to have harmonized prices worldwide, so it is unlikely someone will be able to sell a scanner much cheaper in one country, than another.

The only factor that could make a significant difference are taxes. But if you buy from outside the EU you will pay taxes and duties.

If it is your first scanner, buy local, you will need the support.

hi,
can i ask you why not a z+f?
I’m an architect, too, and I have more than one scanner but for architecture I think z+f it’s the best option.
You can ask for preowned scanner, for example.

and welcome to this forum.

ciao

Hi,

we regularly sell our used FARO demo scanners. These scanners are under maintenance and an alternative to new ones.

Otherwise there are also advertisements from customers who want to sell their scanner, also here you can find good offers.
