As of 2015, used Taylor ice cream makers are available from several sources, including eBay for used or refurbished machines, or directly from the product's manufacturer, Taylor Ultimate Services Co., as refurbished machines. Refurbished machines are used machines that have been inspected and repaired before going back on the market.
Taylor Ultimate Services Co. sells used ice cream machines and reconditioned equipment from the company's brand. Reconditioned equipment is fully refurbished using a 47-point inspection and diagnostic check. Financing, service contracts and warranty are available. All sales of refurbished units include delivery, installation, training, operator's manual, spare parts and cleaning kit. Models and quantities are limited and not shown on the company's website, therefore one has to contact the company to inquire about available machines and prices.
Another option for buying used Taylor ice cream makers is through the online auction website, eBay. Search for "Taylor ice cream machine" and choose from auction format listings or "Buy it now" listings. Searches can also be narrowed to the desired condition, such as used, new or refurbished. There are also search options related to specific price brackets and delivery options. Machines that are not working can also be purchased for use as spare parts.
