Add a footnote if this applies to your business
forklift manufactures have slowed production of new forklifts to levels never seen before, this has resulted in extremely high demand for used and refurbished forklifts and significantly reduced supply of used equipment.
Although new equipment is sometimes avalible more often then not dealers are making promises on new equipment they know they will never be able to meet. 1-2 years delivery for new equipment is more then likely the norm for the foreseeable future as semi conductor supply remains low.
Customers who believe they are a large account are often surprised when dealers don't deliver on time or on budget and the only option they are given is to rent, after they have already paid....don't be. even a fleet of 150 units is small on the North American scale. Remember dealers only get so much say, truly large accounts deal directly with the manufactures head office and will often visit the factory, have you? if your answer is no then chances are you're in line with the rest of them.
We have heard it thousands of times. I need a forklift for under 10k, most under $5000. Although some used equipment dealers will advertise such equipment you will often be a victim of a bait and switch.
When buying used equipment that is sold as rebuilt, refurbished or like new beware of the paint scheme. If your forklift was rebuilt, refurbished or like new why is it being sold with a 30-60-90 day warranty. The truth is your forklift received a new coat of paint and that was it. that's why VCF stands behind our refurbished (CEPO) forklift with the longest bumper to bumper warranty in the industry, 1 year or 2000 hrs.
We recognize the price of quality equipment is extremely high, to combat this we give our customers the option of purchasing the forklift, and leasing the power. for as little as $8 a day on a 2 year and out lease. this does 3 things:
1) Reduces wear on your asset, the number one cause of a forklift failure is a bad battery.
2) lowers the purchase price considerably, with forklift batteries costing between $6-12000 per battery.
3) lowers the environmental impact of your purchase, as your battery will be returned and rebuilt and the end of term to be reused for someone else.
Customers are always right, the good news is if you purchased from somewhere else you're likely not our customer. The truth is any used electric forklift that is sold with a battery and a charger should be at minimum $15,000, why? because a battery costs 6-10k the forklift 10-40k, and a new charger 2k. It's simple addition. now factor in any rebuilt costs and all of a sudden your $5000 forklift was either a steal and you should buy a lotto ticket or more likely you've been lied too.
We know you only use your forklift for 1 hour every harvest moon, we have heard it before. just don't complain when on harvest day your forklift doesn't work, and remember that warranty? well chances are when you go to claim it you'll be denied.
the best forklift to purchase is one you can afford. However most people underestimate their buying power. so a few things can help.
Leasing the forklift, battery and charger. We know you can get lower rates from your bank, but do you know a bank often wont loan for used equipment?
Rentals yes we also know you want to own it. that's great news but unfortunately you already said you don't have that kind of money. In two year I could buy a forklift for that price, but in two years do you really think a forklift wont cost more?
divide the asset, lease the battery and own the forklift. the perfect compromise
We are probably upsetting you at this point, remember its your first or second time buying a forklift but we have done this thousands of times so yes we've heard this before.
LPG forklifts use one tank of fuel per day, the tank costs between $200-400, but the fuel is $40+ to fill it. all of a sudden $8 a day for a battery lease is a bargain
we hope you make a informed decision on your forklift purchase, and should you still choose the $5000 forklift after all this, our service number is :
we will be happy to see you on the other side of your decision.
