How to Get the Best Offer on Your Equipment?

Have an older Forklift you are looking to sell?

Do you still need a forklift for your business? Have you considered trading your old equipment in for a newer piece of equipment?

Two main factors.. help you determine whether it's the right time to trade-in your forklift:

  1. Forklift Age

  2. Maintenance costs.

First, determine the age of your forklift. Car owners tend to measure the age of their vehicles in miles. Some drivers replace their cars when the odometer reaches 100,000. Forklift age is measured in hours.

A typical forklift lasts 10,000 hours. If you use a forklift 40 hours a week, they add up to 6 or 7 years. That said, your forklift's longevity depends on the quality of maintenance, operating conditions, how often the truck was pushed to its load limits, and the forklift's engine type. Electric lift trucks typically last longer than ICE forklifts.

A forklift is the backbone of your productive operation. Like any piece of machinery, forklifts don't last forever. Eventually, the most valuable forklift may turn into a liability, spending more time in the repair shop than on the job.

A trade-in saves you from the time-consuming search for potential buyers and guarantees a smooth ownership transition.
