The ultimate guide to used lift trucks

One of the biggest mistakes when purchasing a used lift truck is being led by price. Remember a rule of thumb; often you get what you pay for! Think about your operational needs of today and tomorrow. If you need a spare truck or only have the occasional use for one, buying a used lift truck may be the answer.

However, if your business depends on a forklift truck, a new machine could be the right solution. You can typically get around this extra cost by using leasing or finance agreements. If there is any doubt that an older truck may not be fit for purpose then it is advisable to use the services of a reliable dealer to carry out a site survey and quote for both new and used.

This provides you with an opportunity to query any variances and operational and application issues, including mast height, truck type and capacity which might arise.
