How Reconditioned Breakers Can Help You Live A Better Life

reconditioned breakers circuit breaker ITE push to trip CR civic

We spend a lot of time talking about the time and effort we take into reconditioning our circuit breakers, why this is important, and what separates us from other companies doing the same thing. This has been discussed at length, and rightfully so; it’s important to know what goes into a product that has been previously used and how reliable it can be. With that said, something we don’t discuss as often is some of the other tangible and intangible benefits that come along with purchasing a reconditioned product from a company like ours. Some of these things seem obvious, some less so.

We thought today, we’d take the opportunity to discuss these benefits and why they should mean something to you. Again, some of these benefits will strike you as quite obvious, but we also thought this to be a fine opportunity to explain why some of these benefits are unique to our company. Circuit breakers may seem like a simple tool, but there is a lot that goes into them and there is a lot to think about when purchasing them. So, with that in mind let’s discuss 4 major benefits to buying reconditioned breakers, and why they will only serve to help you live a better life. Here they are!

1. Electrical Breakers (and peace of mind):

Something that we take pride in, as has been discussed here before, is the amount of work and rigorous testing we put into our reconditioned breakers. What this testing process produces, aside from a reliable product, is peace of mind for the person who is purchasing the breakers. There’s an inherent skepticism that comes along with used products, often times rightfully so, but with our process being as thorough and transparent as it is, there’s no reason to doubt anything ever purchased. Peace of mind, especially in regards to electrical equipment, goes a long way and allows you to purchase great products at a reduced rate without having to doubt their veracity.

2. Used Electrical Supplies (they’re green):

Another benefit to buying reconditioned products is their effect on the environment. Reconditioning products versus manufacturing new ones is always going to have a net benefit on the environment. Not only that, but when breakers are reconditioned and tested, older pieces are often replaced by newer, state of the art ones. What this does is allow the breaker to become much more efficient. It’s a pretty simple and beneficial concept, something that is certainly worth considering.

Astonishing Stock Selection from Civic Recycling

square D westinghouse Siemens Schneider electric ITE general electrical brands breakers breaker logo civic recycling one year warranty Stock Selection

As Canada’s leading expert and its largest provider of circuit breakers nationwide, Civic Recycling maintains an enormously large inventory of all types of breakers, transformersfusesmotor control units, service panels, and a wide variety of electrical supplies. Our catchphrase, “From the obsolete to the obvious!” says it all when it comes to our coverage of electrical items and systems, both new and reconditioned. We’re known across Canada for being the “go to guys” when it comes to finding old, obsolete molded case circuit breakers (MCCB). Our stock selection is excellent and we have about every size there is.

But what makes our used MCCBs unique is that every single one goes through extensive testing and reconditioning before being allowed to go back into service, a process conducted by our staff of certified breaker technicians.

Outstanding Stock Selection and Brands

We create outstanding stock a couple of different ways in our business, both of which represent an excellent opportunity for our customers to benefit. When we run into a great buying scenario for something we want to stock, we may overbuy just because we’ll have the opportunity to sell these items at significant discounts to our clients which, of course, they appreciate.

Since we purchase a good number of used items that we test, recondition and then resell, we may also find companies out there that have accumulated outstanding stock of either new or used electrical items that they want Civic Recycling to buy from them. Often they may have large amounts of electrical equipment in their operations that are either no longer being used or that have broken down and been pulled out of service.

For business owners in this outstanding stock position (having items sitting around taking up space to no advantage whatsoever) – we offer the opportunity to relieve them of the equipment. So rather than sending it to the landfill or junkyard, we can help you earn some money by recycling with us and High Fiving the environment at the same time.


 

Saving You Time and Money

Our breaker selection covers the entire range from the smallest residential MCCBs to large mains systems for commercial and industrial use. We carry all the popular brands, some that aren’t so popular and others that are nearly impossible to locate because of their rarity. We even stock some unique items typically used in Asia or Europe.

Our most recognizable brands include:

  • Westinghouse
  • General Electric
  • Federal Pioneer
  • Schneider
  • Homeline
  • Seimens/ITE
  • Eaton
