7 Questions to ask when buying a train

Purchasing a train is no small feat. To make the process easier, we’ve compiled a list of the top seven questions you need to ask every supplier before making a decision.

Does the train have the correct certification?

Certification is vital, and it’s not enough for your supplier to say they have the CE stamp of approval. Ensure that your train meets all the requirements in your country, and don’t forget about your liability and insurance.

Wattman trains have been equipped with the latest technology, satisfying global standards for essential safety requirements. TUV, an internationally recognized Certification Agency, is responsible to ensure our products meet these standards through rigorous testing and certification processes in accordance with ASTM F22912 & ASTM F1193 for USA customers as well as EN 13814:2019 worldwide.

Is it too good to be true?

When shopping around, it’s not uncommon to find a train that looks the same as more expensive models but at a lower price. However, don’t let the low price tag cloud your judgment.

Do your research on the supplier, read reviews, and ask for references. At Wattman, we have over 800 satisfied customers worldwide and have been in the industry for more than 20 years.

What kind of support can you expect from the supplier? 

Purchasing a train is a long-term investment, so make sure you consider the support you’ll receive from the supplier. Without it, even a good buy can quickly turn into a bad investment.

At Wattman, we offer excellent customer service and technical support for all our trains.

How is the Return on Investment?

When investing in a train, don’t just focus on the price. Consider the long-term use of the train and its reliability.

A Wattman train may not be the cheapest option, but it is a reliable choice that will last for years to come. Many of our customers have been using our trains for over 15 years with no issues.

Is the train environmentally friendly?

With a battery-powered train, you might assume that it’s environmentally friendly. However, it’s essential to consider the origin of raw materials and the paint used to make the train.

At Wattman, our trains are manufactured in Canada, where we meet strict regulations concerning the materials we use. Plus, our trains are fully recyclable.

What about Delivery?

What about delivery? Shipping a train can be challenging, especially if you’re not familiar with the process.

At Wattman, we take care of everything, from shipping to import formalities and door-to-door delivery. We have warehouses in both Canada and the Netherlands, so you can rest assured that your train will arrive safely and on time.

Is the train suitable for me?

Not every train is suitable for every application. At Wattman, we’ll help you determine whether our trains are the best fit for your needs. Our trains are used in shopping centers, zoos, amusement parks, museums, and more.
