Final Thoughts

Now that you’re more familiar with some popular gutter machine manufacturers worldwide, it’s still essential that you research each company, compare their products, ask the right questions, and choose the company that best fits you and your needs.

There’s more that goes into purchasing a portable gutter machine from a manufacturer than just finding a great price or what fits in your budget. Keep in mind these questions of companies and their products when doing your research:

  • Does the gutter machine manufacturer provide financing or partner with leasing companies that offer financing
  • Is the machine manufacturer able to process orders and assemble/ship the machine(s) on a schedule that works for you and your business?
  • What are the shipping or freight costs if you purchase a machine? Can they ship to your company’s location?
  • Is there a service technician or technical department you can contact if you have any questions about the machine, need service, or require help troubleshooting an issue with the equipment?
  • What kind of gutter profiles are popular with customers in your area? Which profiles would you like to be able to offer to customers?
  • Does the company you want to purchase a machine from offer the accessories or add-ons (trailer, run out stands, coil cradles, etc.) you’d like to have?
  • Is machine training offered? What are the costs associated with training, or is there a free session provided?
  • Are warranties offered? How do the warranties compare between different manufacturers?
