4 REASONS WHY YOU MIGHT BE WANTING TO TRADE IN YOUR FORKLIFT
Your forklift is probably a very necessary piece of equipment, used to lift everything from pallets to parts. However these machines do not last forever, so what should you do? How about trading in your forklift for a competitively priced new or secondhand forklift.
THE VALUE OF A TRADE-IN
1. Cost-Effective Performance
For every hour that a forklift isn’t working represents a loss in productivity. As maintenance costs climb, the trade-in value of your forklift drops.
2. Age & Hours
When the hour meter on your forklift approaches 10,000 hrs, the value starts dropping significantly. This goes for both electric and gas forklifts.
3. Usage/ Environment
Forklifts that clock more than 2,000 hours annually wear out a lot faster than one clocking 500 – 1000 hours. Forklifts working in harsh environments will have a shorter lifespan than those that spend their time inside.
4. Visual Appearance
Though you may not be able to get your lift looking brand new, a well presented forklift makes a big difference when it comes to trade-in value.
