Purchasing a forklift – whether it is a new or used fork lift – can and should be a great investment. Especially for long-term use, it is important to consider the different price points, options, configurations, and types of forklifts. A forklift for long-term use should be able to handle an increase in demand, productivity, and material handling. For this, you may need a counterbalance type of forklift or equipment add-ons like side shifts.
Here at BIG Machinery we stock everything you need. The new and used forklifts we have for sale are kept in prime condition and have proven to be a reliable long-term investment.
Considerations when buying a new or used forklift
If you are purchasing a forklift for the first time it can be pretty overwhelming to make the right choice. There are hundreds of options to choose from, and it’s not always clear what configurations or equipment you need. The most important aspects to consider are the type of counterbalance forklift, the forklift’s loading capacity, the lifting height, type of mast, the tyres, and the type of drive (electric, diesel, lpg, or hybrid).
In addition, you will need to figure out if the forklift will be used mostly in- or outdoors since you will have to find tyres that fit the operating terrain. If you are still unsure which forklift to pick, contact us right away so we can help you out in your selection process.
