Wondering how we do it? Well it’s quite simple. We ask you just three, straightforward questions. Each question has its own simple and straightforward, one-click answer. It takes no more than five minutes. All we need to know is the type of forklift you need, the condition you want to buy it in, and what you need it to lift.
Here’s what we will ask you:
What Type of Forklift Do You Need?
There are several types of forklifts under the general “forklift” umbrella. We know this and so do our San Diego forklift dealers. You tell us what kind of forklift you are looking to buy. Is it an indoor oriented forklift such as a traditional, sit-down forklift, order picker, or pallet jack? Or are you looking for something more heavy duty like a scissor lift or telehandler? Whatever kind of equipment you need, our dealers have it in stock.
How Much Lift Capacity Do You Need?
Smaller indoor jobs typically require no more than a 10,000 lbs lift capacity. Outdoor material handling jobs need a more medium sized lift capacity of 10,000 – 20,000 lbs. When it comes to lifting both your personnel and their materials, you need a heavy duty lift capacity of over 20,000 lbs that comes with a scissor lift or telehandler.
That’s it. Pretty painless, right? The best used forklifts, at the best prices, from the best dealers in San Diego, all wrapped up and delivered to your inbox in five minutes or less.
Should I Buy Used or New?
This is a common question we get asked by most of our customers, especially those who haven’t bought a forklift before or do not buy them regularly. The answer really depends on your operations. How often you need to use your forklift, and how much do you need it to lift.
For regular, but not heavy use, at light to medium lifting capacity – you’re better off buying a used forklift. It’s cheaper and will save room on your equipment budget for when you do need to buy new equipment.
When you need your forklift for sustained use and regular heavy lifting, it’s safer to buy new. These kinds of jobs require equipment that doesn’t have any pre-tred miles on its fork and body. If you’re lifting your crew, you want to make sure they are in excellent, brand new equipment.
Our San Diego forklift dealers stock the full gambit of equipment under the forklift umbrella. From motorized and manual pallet jacks, sit-down forklifts, and order pickers to heavy duty scissor lifts and telehandlers. Looking for gas or propane powered? How about electric or hydraulic? Need a light, medium, or heavy lift capacity? Whatever your forklift needs are, our San Diego dealers have the solution, and they’ll come to you. When you can buy your next forklift from your office, why would you ever buy it anywhere else?
