Making egg trays can be an excellent business idea. Millions of eggs are sold every day, most of them in paper trays. All you need to start this kind of enterprise is a fully automatic egg tray machine, some waste paper and a handful of clients. Let’s see where you can search for such machines and how to ensure you pick a reliable seller.
The first thing you should do is to assess the potential of this business. Try to reach out to some of your potential clients to find out whether they would be interested in buying egg trays from you. Also, try to estimate the sales volume you’d be able to score. The point of this exercise is to determine the ideal characteristics of your machine. Starting from this sales volume estimate, you can calculate the number of trays you’ll have to make per day. Divide this figure by the number of hours you want your egg tray machine to operate per day and you’ll find out the desired production capacity, expressed in egg trays per hour.
When searching for egg tray making machine for sale suppliers, consider going directly for a manufacturer rather than a third-party vendor. Furthermore, dare to think outside the box and seek for companies in China or in other countries in Asia. This is how you can find top-notch quality equipment at reasonable prices. When doing your research, don’t forget to check out the quality certifications of these machines. Buy a machine that has an ISO 9000, TUV or CE quality certification, in order to be allowed to legally use it. Always check with your local authorities to see what kind of certifications they accept in your area.
If this is the first time you’re seeking to buy equipment online, consider taking a look into some of the largest industrial and business directories such as AliBaba.com and AliExpress.com. These two virtual marketplaces list thousands of companies in China and in other countries in Asia. They are all actively seeking for global customers. When you pick some of them to add to your shortlist, take a look at their credentials and choose only the ones with high seller ratings and a big number of positive customer reviews.
Last but not least, check out the warranty, the shipping terms, and the added services these companies are willing to provide. Post-sales services are as important as the quality of the egg carton making machine, so don’t trade them off for the sake of a lower price.
