Have you ever heard the phrase “you have to spend money to make money”? While there may be some truth to this, there’s no reason you can’t save money, too. When purchasing material handling equipment for your business, the best way to save money and make money, is to buy used forklifts to increase efficiency and productivity in your business. If you’re new to purchasing used material handling equipment, The Forklift Pro is here to guide you through the best practices.
Why Buy Previously Owned Equipment?
Buying used material handling equipment is one of the smartest moves to make. Used forklifts are a quality, reliable investment that can help businesses increase productivity while remaining within their budget.
Avoid Depreciation of Value
Just like purchasing a new car, a new forklift depreciates in value soon after purchase. When you buy used forklifts, you avoid losing value on your investment so quickly. A forklift is considered to last you for five years before it will need to be replaced.
Take Advantage of Tax Deductions
One of the biggest savings for your business is utilizing the Section 179 deduction for used forklifts. Companies can write off used equipment purchases, like forklifts, with an immediate 100 percent deduction – plus bonus depreciation!
Pre-Owned Material Handling Equipment is Reliable
Each piece of material handling equipment that is sold by The Forklift Pro is first put through a rigorous inspection. All elements of each truck are examined and any needed repairs are made before they are added to available inventory. We guarantee our customers will be purchasing a safe and dependable used forklift.
Up-Front Cost Savings
Last but certainly not least, the best reason to buy used forklifts is for the money you save right away. Typically, used forklifts sell for half the price of a new forklift. These savings allow businesses to double their investment purchasing two used forklifts while a budget may have only allowed for one new forklift.
