Forklifts are some of the most necessary pieces of equipment used across countless industries. Whether you are loading or unloading heavy pallets or moving supplies from one end of a warehouse to another, forklifts make life easier. Forklifts make moving inventory a snap, especially when compared to moving items by hand. Unfortunately, forklifts are not inexpensive pieces of equipment, although business owners in search of forklifts can find tremendous deals when seeking used equipment. It is important to be cautious of used heavy equipment such as forklifts because if they were not properly maintained, you could be buying someone else’s problem.
At Integrity Lift Services, we purchase used forklifts, or take them on trade, but only after they are fully examined by our highly trained team members. We have strict criteria that must be met in order for us to purchase or take forklifts on trade because we pride ourselves in selling used forklifts of high quality to our customers.
When you buy a used forklift from Integrity Lift Services, you can rest assured knowing that you are purchasing heavy equipment that is mechanically and functionally sound. Like cars or trucks, forklifts are valued based on age and amount of use. While mileage is a good indicator of use with cars and trucks, forklifts and other types of heavy equipment are measured in hours of use. When purchasing used forklifts, pay close attention to the number of hours on the machine. The higher the number, the more likely you may have to spend a lot of money on repairs in the near future.
Hours are not the only factor that should be considered when purchasing a used forklift. It is important to know the maintenance history of the forklift to determine whether the machine will be a good investment for you. If you are unaware of the maintenance history of a used forklift, you are taking a gamble.
At Integrity Lift Services, we have forklifts to suit most budgets, and we are confident that our forklifts are of high quality and that they will meet your needs for a significant amount of time, provided they receive regular maintenance.
