Welcome to Profitness Wholesale of Maryland

Click on the articles below to see how we recondition our equipment.

Before you buy used equipment, you should know what you are getting. Read below for more information.

Reconditioning the equipment is critical to success in this business. There are three ways that exercise equipment is resold.

Remanufactured equipment means that the item is fully disassembled and all parts that have the potential to wear out are replaced. the frame is painted or powder coated. The item is fully reassembled to factory specifications. This is similar to a councors restoration of a car. It is very timer consuming to do and is usually performed by the manufacturer at their plant on the newest equipment. The cost makes it prohibitive to do on older equipment. Items that are remanufactured tend to be expensive and sell for 10 to 30 percent below the original price

Reconditioned equipment has been repaired to some degree. The amount of work done on the equipment varies with the seller. Some do no more than a quick cleaning and minor adjustments. Others follow a comprehensive checklist and replace any worn or questionable parts. When purchasing reconditioned equipment, you should check to see what the seller has done.

Used equipment is sold 'as-is' without any work being done. It does not have a warranty. The price may be lower, but prepare to do the repairs on your own. Many resellers sell used to get rid of items in poor condition. Unless you know how to repair this equipment, we recommend avoiding used equipment.

Our Reconditioning Process - We take the comprehensive approach. All items subject to wear are checked and replaced if the wear is excessive, (anything beyond factory tolerances). The checks involve all moving parts including bearings, bushings, brakes, motors, gears, transmissions, steppers, belts, and electrical parts. In addition, we perform a complete cosmetic restoration. We repaint the equipment if needed, polish the chrome parts, and clean and disinfect all items. Worn pedals, seats, levelers, and transport wheels are replaced if needed, although these are not critical to the operation of the item. Finally, we test all the electrical aspects of the equipment and test the item for 30 minutes. We want to sell you a good looking piece of equipment that functions well and will last for many years. See below for more specific information about individual types of products.
