When it comes to forklift sales in Vancouver – new or used – we at Westminster Lift Truck Services have you covered.
Why buy used?
Lower upfront cost. When you buy used, you let someone else foot the bill for the instant depreciation of new equipment when it's driven off the showroom floor. A good used machine can save you 30 – 50% off the price of new for this reason. This is a particularly important consideration for new or small outfits.
You have the benefit of consumer literature to tell you which brands and models you should avoid and which are worth the investment
Buying used also allows you to test particular models before you buy them new
Not sure if you want to risk buying used equipment with the possible hidden damage or defects? Take the guesswork out by buying from a reputable dealer like Westminster Lift Truck Services. Our used forklifts are reconditioned, painted and safety inspected, and come with a 100% parts and labour warranty and a 30-day no-hassle money-back guarantee.
Experts agree that if your forklift requirements are less than full-time (one shift per day, no more than five days a week and five hours a day), then buying good used equipment from a reputable dealer is probably the best for you. For quality used forklifts in Surrey give us a call at Westminster Lift Truck Services.
When to buy new?
You pay more out of the gate, but that buys you peace-of-mind in the form of longer warranties, having the newest model direct from the factory matching your specific want/needs and having control over every aspect of maintenance and care. Let's face it, sometimes the security in knowing your forklift won't seize up on you with a two-tonne pallet fifteen feet in the air is simply worth the extra cost!
If your forklift needs are heavy (two shifts or more per day, five days or more a week of non-stop heavy warehouse work) then buying new is probably for you. A forklift breakdown can be very costly if your whole operation relies on them to roll. At Westminster Lift Truck Services we provide fast, expert and affordable mobile and in-house service for all types of forklifts.
