It is a good idea to check out the used forklift before putting any money down. As with other used vehicles, used forklifts can be in bad shape and need extensive repair. It is important to be sure that the used forklift is not a lemon. Many used forklift dealers offer “better than new” guarantees that assure buyers that the used forklift is in good condition. Many of these warranties are longer lasting and offer more extensive coverage than warranties covering new forklifts.
Many stores that sell new forklifts also sell old ones. They may take used forklifts as trade-ins for new ones, as many car dealerships do with cars. Several well-known and reputable used forklift dealers can be found in any region of the country, and similar services exist over the Internet as well. Internet purchases can be riskier because the buyer may not get to examine the used forklift before buying it, but, usually, it works out fine.
There are some companies that specialize in used forklifts. They may buy them from sellers, fix them up a bit, and then resell them. These are often very good machines, as they are extensively improved before being resold. Other websites let people advertise their used forklifts for sale and take a percentage of the price if some one buys it.
EBay is another place to find used forklifts, sometimes at a huge discount. Buyers may not get to test drive them before buying, so it is important that they know the exact make and model that they want before buying anything.
Used forklifts can be a great deal for people with a limited budget. They often come with better warranties than new forklifts and are just as good.
