USED FORKLIFTS

Buying used equipment can save you a lot in upfront costs but it can cost you more in maintenance in the long run. Warranty coverage is limited on pre-owned equipment therefore repairs and maintenance may not be covered. If you have a high usage environment buying new may be more cost-effective. Contact our sales team today to discuss your equipment needs at 330-273-0888 or sales@mmhforklifts.com
