Nowadays, owning a piece of previously-owned item is common. We buy used books, used clothes, watches, designer bags, second-hand cars and so on. Pre-owned items can mean savings especially when you buy in abundance or buying over time or buying a big-ticket item such as an automobile versus paying for a brand-new car.
On the corporate level, equipment can pass from one company to another after being refurbished and fitted with new parts and serviced. Airplanes come into this category. Duplicating machines as well as hospital equipment can come under this category of corporate pre-owned items changing ownership.
