Here are some basic rules to help you identify the ideal equipment for your business needs.
Understand the basics :
Do your research, collect and understand information as much as you can, and keep an open mind. Reading a few industry articles will give you a better understanding about forklifts in general and the current used forklift market. The more you understand, the stronger will be your ability to appreciate a good deal.
Know your requirements — carefully consider your needs, be realistic with your budget, and write up a detailed list of what you want your forklift to do for you.
Budget : An unrealistic budget probably won’t get you the forklift you need.
Forklift size : Give this some thought. For example: Will it be used inside or outside, or both? What’s the turning circle, will you need to turn in an aisle?
Buying a used forklift makes perfect sense, and will save you money – as long as you do your research and deal with a supplier who has the knowledge and experience to help you find exactly what you are looking for.
