Forklifts are the heart of many businesses as they serve as an integral part of businesses operations, and keep businesses ticking along.
Buying used forklifts is an affordable option for businesses to meet their handling and heavy equipment needs.
When it comes to buying a used forklift, it’s important to be able to identify key characterics to ensure it meets your particular business applications and gives you long term value.
With over 40+ years of experience in the industry, Forkserve has done the hard work for you and identified some important factors you need to consider.
Manufacturer Independent Warranties
This is an area where it pays to do your homework.
To avoid any future problems you want to make sure you get answers to the following questions:
– How long is the warranty period?
– How much coverage is left?
– What exactly does it cover?
– Is the warranty transferable upon sale?
These questions will help you determine the extent and applicability of any available coverage.
Here at Forkserve we can answer all those questions for you. We provide detailed warranty information and offer a warranty on all used forklifts.
Used Forklifts may have higher maintenance and repair needs. It’s therefore important to clearly assess the serviceability of who you’re buying it from.
You want to make sure the seller can clearly explain the coverage of their service and also offer a physical location to take the forklift back to.
Forkserve offers competitive service & repair rates for all forklift makes and models.
We do not charge a service call booking fee for any of our forklift repairs and service.
Servicing is carried by our professional, fully qualified mobile mechanics either on site or in our Forkserve workshop at Arndell Park.
You wouldn’t buy a used company vehicle without a full service history, so why would you buy a used forklift without one?
The vendor should give you a history of any previous service undertaken and provide an indication of the overall condition of the forklift.
Here at Forkserve, our used forklifts adhere to strict quality control measures. We can provide a full thorough service history, should you have any further enquiries our mechanics are more than happy to help you out.
Buying Direct From Servicing Providers
When buying a used forklift you want to make sure that you buy from someone who will ultimately provide ongoing service and support.
There’s no point going to a middleman who may initially offer a cheaper price, but then has no involvement post sale, in the long run you’ll end up paying more.
Forkserve is not a middleman, when you buy a forklift from us, take comfort that you’re gaining access to a network of qualified experts.
Our team will work with you from initially helping you to identify the best used forklift to suit your needs, to then looking after you throughout the life of the forklift.
It’s important to be able to identify that you’re dealing with a reputable business.
Do a bit of research and see how long a business has been around for, and what type of reputation they have in the industry.
You want to be dealing with a company who has a proven record and customers can vouch for.
At Forkserve, we’ve been around for a long time (40 Years) during which time we have built a strong and reputable business.
We’re proudly family-owned and our customers are our number one priority.
Recently we’ve even been nominated as a finalist in the Australian Small Business Champion Awards 2020 (i.e. the Oscars for Australian small businesses).
Buying a used forklift is not a decision to be taken lightly.
