Second Hand Forklifts – Refurbished

Top Advantages of Buying Second-Hand Forklifts Refurbished by Bidvest Forklifts

If you work in an industry that requires reliable and top-quality forklifts for the lifting and moving of heavy or awkwardly sized goods, you will understand the importance of selecting the right equipment for the job. If you are looking for ways to upgrade your current fleet of forklifts without exceeding your set budget, second-hand forklifts may be the ideal solution. The thought of refurbished forklifts might be the cause of some apprehension, but if you choose to deal with Bidvest Forklifts, there is quite simply nothing to worry about. When you are shopping around for a refurbished or second-hand forklift to buy, you need to consider all your options. We have summarised the top advantages to buying second-hand forklifts for you to consider below:

  • The purchase process can be completed a great deal more quickly when buying a second-hand unit. For starters, the cost of a refurbished unit is usually a lot more affordable, which means you will not need to finance it. If you do need finance, the amount you are applying for will be a lot lower and therefore easier to qualify for. If you need your forklifts now and do not have too much time to waste, buying second-hand can save you quite a lot of time as well.
  • You will not be limited by budget constraints. You might have your eye on a high-end forklift that costs too much new for you to afford. By shopping second-hand, you can find the best quality forklifts at very affordable prices. Second-hand units make it easier for you to keep upgrading the quality of your fleet without the crippling effect that brand-new units will have on your budget.
  • Quality can be guaranteed. If you deal with a top-quality supplier such as Bidvest, you can rest assured that the refurbished equipment has been overhauled by some of the most qualified and expert technicians and mechanics available. This means that your forklift will be thoroughly checked and is guaranteed to be free of any electrical or mechanical problems.
  • You will suffer less depreciation. The bane of new assets, especially expensive industrial equipment like forklifts, is depreciation. They depreciate the moment you drive them off the showroom floor. Brand-new equipment lose its value much faster when you buy them, as opposed to second-hand equipment that has already lost some of that value, and sits lower on the depreciation curve when you buy it, at which point the depreciation has slowed down appreciably. This means that you can replace your equipment in a shorter time and won’t lose as much on your initial investment.
