CHOOSING BETWEEN A NEW AND USED FORKLIFT
New Or Used Forklift: Which Is Right For You?
A forklift is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in warehouse equipment. Having the right forklift is essential for maximizing productivity and workplace safety.
As with any vehicle, forklifts are available both new and used. Which should you buy? The only correct answer is the one that best suits your needs. Our expert team at Mid-Ohio Material Handling explains the factors you should consider before making a choice.
Differences Between New And Used Forklifts
Parts & Maintenance
With pre-existing wear and tear, used forklifts will have a shorter lifespan than new ones and will most likely require more maintenance. Be sure to review the detailed records of repairs and maintenance issues.
Full warranties on new forklifts can provide peace of mind. While warranties are sometimes available on used forklifts, they’re usually extremely limited.
