When deciding to buy a new diesel forklift or a used forklift, you need to consider many factors such as investment costs, depreciation costs, operating costs, ability to meet the job…… When investing in a second-hand diesel forklift, you will save a large amount of initial investment compared to buying a new forklift. Meanwhile, used forklifts are often available at the warehouse and ready to deliver without the long waiting time for trucks to be imported as when buying a new vehicle.

Investment comparison

In general, each type of forklift truck of different brands will have different advantages and disadvantages.

Comparison and assessment of investment costs need to take into account the correlation between investment costs and the value brought. Because the price is expensive or cheap depending on this correlation. A second-hand diesel forklift has a low cost but also brings low performance such as: frequent breakdowns, low operating capacity, high fuel consumption, etc., the investment cost is high or can be said to be expensive.

In contrast, a new diesel forklift has a high cost but brings a very high performance : stable operation, high capacity, fuel saving, warranty service, dedicated maintenance … then the investment becomes low or can be said to be cheap.

Nowadays, Yale forklifts is the most mentioned brand because of its high economic efficiency but still ensures performance when compared to other diesel forklift products in the same price segment.

Waranty Policy, Repairs & Maintenance

This is the criterion that customers pay the most attention to because it will directly affect the quality of work later when the car encounters problems. You need to carefully consider what services the company’s warranty policy will cover and whether the company directly distributes equipment and genuine spare parts for the warranty or not?
