Used-trussing.com is a new online portal dedicated to supplying a huge variety of leading-brand used and new trussing solutions to the entertainment industry. The new site is co-ordinated by A.C. Entertainment Technologies, one of the industry’s largest truss distributors, with a dedicated rigging sales division and over 20 years knowledge and experience in supplying truss products.
Available through used-trussing.com are vast quantities of new, as new, ex-demo, ex-installation, ex-rental, ex-tradeshow and second hand truss sections and associated accessories, including corner blocks and connection sets, plus a selection of other rigging equipment – at what the company says are very competitive prices.
Many leading trussing and rigging brands are represented on used-trussing.com, including Litec, Prolyte, Slick, Thomas, TFL and Trilite. In addition to the diverse selection of trussing available, visitors can also find Lodestar electric chain hoists, motor controllers and rigging equipment – just about anything that is needed to get a truss floating in the air.
Despite items being sold at heavily discounted prices off the standard list prices, many items are nearly new and – unlike a brokering service – are held in stock for dispatch, often the same day from A.C Rigging’s distribution hubs in Leeds.
The site is designed for super-quick navigation and to be easy, logical and straightforward to use, together with a streamlined system for orders, which can be processed and delivered over the phone by the rigging sales team.
All listings are linked directly to a live computer system, to ensure that it is always up-to-date. Immediately an item is sold, it is removed from the list. There are also constant updates containing special offers, new prices and brands.
There is even a contact form that can be completed to register interest in a particular item or series of items or product lines, which the company says will be followed up immediately.
In addition to all the standard items, used-trussing.com is said to be a good place to source more unusual, bespoke and off-beat trussing, of which there is a substantial quantity which will be of interest to anyone building a custom project, sets or scenery pieces.
All items are inspected before leaving the warehouse, and A.C. Rigging can also advise on the condition of the different elements and suggest alternatives if specifics being sought are not listed.
