Des Moines Forklifts

The city of Des Moines is vital to the supply chain industry. It’s situated right in the heart of Iowa, at the intersection of major US interstate highways I-35 and I-80. The central location of Des Moines provides one day transit access to any city or town in the mid-western United states. 

This access to the midwest is pivotal for many national and global supply chains, and it’s why there is a booming warehousing industry in Des Moines. If you run one of these warehouses, then you know how important the right equipment is to getting the job done. Forklifts are the cornerstone of that necessary equipment.

For too long, the forklift buying experience has been a costly venture. One full of calling and driving around to see which dealers offer what models and for what price. We are working diligently to change the headaches that come from buying your next forklift. 

When you buy a used forklift form one of our partner forklift dealers in the Des Moines area, the quotes come to you. This saves you both time and money by shrinking the forklift buying experience to one that you can do from your office.

What We Do

We’re changing the way you buy forklifts by asking you just three simple questions, each with their own straightforward, one-click answer. We take the intel you give us and put together a list of really solid quotes from local Des Moines forklift dealers. We send these quotes right to your inbox. All you have to do is select the right quote for the right forklift for your operations.

It takes no more than five minutes to get the best forklift quotes on both used and new equipment, from reputable Des Moines forklift dealers delivered to your inbox.

Here’s what we need know:

What kind of forklift are you looking to buy? Pallet jacks, sit-down forklift or order picker for indoor warehouse use? Looking for something more heavy duty like a scissor lift or telehandler for your construction site? Or do you need an even more specialized forklift? Our forklift dealers sell a wide variety of forklifts, so you are bound to find the one that works best for you.

Next, we need to know whether you want to buy a new or a used forklift. Buying a used forklift from a certified used forklift dealer in Des Moines is a great way to get great pre-owned equipment at the best prices. Looking for something new, without any miles? Our forklift dealers sell the best new equipment from the best brands, at really competitive prices.

The last question is more specific to your operations. We need to know how much lifting capacity you need your forklift to have. Do you need light lifting power for loads under 10,000 lbs? Moderate lifting capacity for loads weighing 10,000 to 20,000 lbs? Or do you need a heavy lifting capacity forklift to lift and carry loads of materials and personell weighing more than 20,000 lbs? Our Des Moines forklift dealers have the solution for whatever your lifting capacity needs may be.

Buying Used vs Buying New

Wondering if you should buy a used forklift or fork up the cash for new equipment? Take a second to consider how often you will need to use your forklift and what you need your forklift to lift. Do you need it for light to moderate use and for light to moderate lifting? Then go with a used forklift from one of our partner dealers in Des Moines. They will set you up with a quality pre-owned forklift, at a super competitive price.

If you think you need your forklift for sustained heavy use and lifting, then you will want to buy a new one, without any miles on it’s fork and body. This will ensure that your forklift can stand up to heavy use for years to come.

Available Equipment
