Why cheapest isn’t always best!

Money is a finite resource and constantly we have to make a lot of tough decisions about how to spend our funds wisely. Everybody loves a bargain and for every purchase we make, we like to save money. However, there are times when saving does not always equal a good deal and thus isn’t always the smartest choice. Getting a good value for your hard-earned money is most important.

Industrial top-notch incinerators that comply with all regulations and Directives are not cheap … it’s a big investment. That’s why you should not buy an incinerator overnight and perform the due diligence afterwards.

Unfortunately, most clients are not at all familiar with thermal waste treatment systems and thus illiterate when it comes to in-depth assessment of the different incineration technologies, presented in the current market. Habitually, customers opt to ask for slashed incinerator prices and often jump on the opportunity offered by smooth talking low-cost incinerator providers, without prior due consideration of the outcome and consequences. Be leery of the dealer that tries to sell you an attractive package too nice to be true”, as often there will be an unpleasant surprise around the corner.

Why spend more money?

Many things must be taken into consideration when looking at quotes, being aware that the cheapest offer typically comes with more risk. Lower investment cost often results in unreliability and unscheduled maintenance shutdowns with costly repairs.

The first reason to spend more money is that the quality and reliability is simply worth the extra cost. The second reason is that the better-quality product ends up saving you money in the long run.

“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.


The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.” (John Ruskin)

Why it cost what it cost?

why the cheapest isn't always the best

There will always be a cheaper option, but cheaper doesn’t mean better. At the end, you will get the value you paid for. “When you buy cheap, you buy twice!”
