Dealers know the history and current state of the machinery, so it is essential to get access to information from them. This involves the equipment if it has been leased or owned through the same dealer or if any modifications are made. Dealers who are ready to offer such services and are willing to discuss information about the equipment are more likely to give satisfaction to the customers’ needs and are reliable.
