When you are in the market for a forklift, there are several key considerations you need to take into account to ensure you are purchasing the right one. A good place to start your evaluation is by making a list of your requirements and answering the following questions:
New vs. Used vs. Rentals
Another key consideration is directly related to how often you will be using the forklift. If you intend to use it on a daily basis for one or more shifts, then a new forklift is better because it has a longer useful lifespan. On the other hand, if you only intend to use it for a few hours each week, you could potentially save some money by looking at used models.
Forklift rentals are a good option when you only require a forklift for a short period of time for a specific project. For instance, you are renovating your business and need a forklift to lift and move large objects out of the way.
Rentals can also be a great choice if you are not sure whether one model would be better than another. You can rent both models and do your own comparisons to see which one best suits your needs. Then, once you decide, you can purchase either a new or used forklift.
