When looking at used forklifts for sale, there a lot to consider to ensure you make the right decision.
Whether you need used forklifts to move heavy materials or items more fragile, a forklift is an invaluable piece of equipment. If you need another forklift to add to your fleet, or your old one is ready for retirement, a used forklift is a smart solution to keep your warehouse humming!
Buying a used forklift can save you quite a bit of money compared to a new lift, and making the wrong decision can cost you money and time.
3 things to consider when looking for used forklifts for sale:
1. Know What Specific Jobs Your Used Forklift Must Handle
Before buying a used lift, it’s important to research and determine the right machine for your material handling needs. Do you need a model similar to what you have now or are you increasing warehouse productivity and need something different to get the job done?
Do your research so you know what you need and what piece of equipment will get it done.
Refer to our Types of Forklifts page to see a breakdown of each type of forklift and what it is used for.
2. Get a Warranty on Your Used Forklift
There is an inferred risk with a used forklift because the lift is older. A forklift warranty can be a beneficial tool, especially when acquiring a used forklift. We recommend when looking for a used forklift for sale, make sure it comes with a warranty to protect your investment.
Having a warranty can help you cut back on future costs.
All of our lifts come with a Warranty, you can’t do better than that!
3. Should You a Buy Gas or an Electric Forklift?
Used electric forklifts with their green technology are easier than ever to find. As material handling technology continues to evolve, the electric forklift will become more commonplace and gas forklifts will eventually age out.
It is important to determine which type of material handling equipment to commit to and to make sure the machine meets your needs now and in the future.
