Frankly speaking, the operators who want to buy second-hand animatronic dinosaurs just want to save operating costs. This is a common idea of many scenic spots and park operators. In fact, second-hand has no advantage except that the price seems cheap. After all, second-hand is used for several years, and the hardware will be somewhat worn. So the failure rate must be relatively high. If there is a problem with the purchase quality, it may take three days to fish and two days to dry the net. It’s very troublesome to fix the problem here and there.

Secondly, many operators have a concept that second-hand must be very cheap, which is as cheap as giving away. In fact, no matter how second-hand, the cost of an animatronic dinosaur is also there. It can’t be handled at a loss because it’s second-hand. And the second-hand needs to pay more energy than the new to do after-sales maintenance, so the second-hand is not necessarily more cost-effective.

We can do a second-hand and new cost calculation, from the freight, installation costs, packaging costs, whether it is a second-hand and new animatronic dinosaurs, these costs are the same. In addition, the price of the new animatronic dinosaur is about 2300 meters, and the second-hand one can’t be cheaper than 1500 meters. Although it’s hundreds less, it will bear the high failure rate brought by second-hand.

Therefore, in order not to overstock funds, animatronic dinosaur companies will basically choose to be used as second-hand processing, and sell at cost price. This kind of second-hand is no different from the new one. It can be said that it is cost-effective.

Of course, if you have enough money, you must buy a new animatronic dinosaur, which is more convenient to use. However, in view of the lack of sufficient funds for many operators, they have to find a way to be thrifty and buy second-hand cars. However, they have to polish their eyes, which is the same as buying second-hand cars. They have a lot of differences. If you know how to buy second-hand products, it’s OK, but if you don’t know how to buy second-hand products, it’s better to buy a new model, which is less risky than the second meeting.
