Once you understand the forklift buying process, you’ll be able to quickly look at the forklifts for sale in your market and select the best forklifts to buy for your specific requirements. 

Forklift Types

Defining the types of forklifts you’ll need is where many people start. Will they all be the types of forklifts used in warehouses, or will there be some outdoor lift truck applications? Forklift dealers often specialize in certain application types, so finding a forklift company that can meet all of your needs is important.

Used or New Forklifts?

Will you buy new forklifts, or will you be including used forklifts in your fleet? New forklift prices are sometimes prohibitive for smaller businesses, and many opt to either lease forklifts or buy used lift trucks instead.

Your forklift purchase price is often dependent on other factors like maintenance contracts and additional equipment, so you may be able to buy new lift trucks if you bundle products and services in your contract.  

Forklift Brands

What forklift brands and models will you consider? A forklift brand comparison with the best rated forklifts can be invaluable in decision making.  Material handling publications sometimes offer a forklift buyers guide that should have a forklift brands list and forklift ratings from the publisher.

Buying a reliable forklift is critical, so it’s also important to read forklift reviews from actual users. They will often give you more information on specific fork lift dealers, forklift prices and other valuable insight.

When you narrow down the brands of forklifts you’ll be considering, you can go to a specific fork lift company and request a forklift pricing guide that will give you a sense of your total forklift cost.

Forklift Dealers

Will you be working with a full service fork lift dealer?  Are they able to provide maintenance programs, parts, batteries, training and other services that go along with forklift ownership? Forklifts dealers vary widely by capabilities, so it’s important to vet them carefully. 

Forklift equipment sales is a very competitive business, so when you find your desired forklifts for sale from a lift truck dealer that you like, you shouldn’t be afraid to negotiate for discounts, extra services or perks.
