Considering Purchasing a Used Morgue Refrigerator?

Investing in a new or used mortuary cooling unit is a significant decision that can have a great impact on your finances and cooler functionality over the next several years.

When considering a previously owned refrigeration unit, you should ask yourself the following questions:
• What is the lifespan of the previously owned equipment?
• Is the unit(s) structurally sound? Has the insulation been saturated? Are there any cracks or leaks?
• Is there a warranty, and what does it include?
• Will delivery and installation be easy and affordable?
• Will this unit(s) handle all the requirements of my facility?

If your team is considering purchasing a used cooler, it is critical that the mechanicals go through a vigorous inspection and are tested prior to shipment.
