Managers recognise the threat increased costs have on profitability and the sustainability of their business. Decreasing costs has therefore become a top priority.

Considerations before buying used forklifts

When purchasing key material handling equipment which is as crucial to your operational success as forklifts are, ensuring you make the right investment decision is in your best interest. And choosing between a new and used forklift may seem like a trade-off between cost and quality but at 600SA we ensure that you get the best value and return on your investment, especially through our second-hand forklifts and after-sales support.

We recognise that each business is unique and therefore has different needs which is why we provide you with a range of quality second-hand forklifts from recognised and credible brands.

The following considerations are crucial to your investment decisions, especially when purchasing a second-hand forklift:

  1. What forklift type does your business need, internal combustion or electric forklift?

  2. What forklift specifications do you need in terms of lifting capacity, size and dimensions?

  3. How many hours of use has the forklift had and what is its capacity to work economically?

  4. Is there any damage to the forklift or its components?

  5. What is the maintenance record of the forklift, and does it affect future performance?

  6. Does the forklift come with a warranty and what aftermarket services are offered?

These 6 questions are only some of the things you need to keep in mind when purchasing a used forklift. To find out more about used forklift considerations read our blog “Used forklifts for sale. 8 critical pre-sales question to ask”.
