Hyster Approved Used – The way forward?

 

“Demand for refurbished 2-3.5t capacity equipment is growing,” says David McIntyre, Business Services Manager, from Hyster. “After experiencing positive results, businesses are becoming more open minded about buying or renting quality refurbished equipment, often ordering a mixed fleet of new and refurbished products, in order to reduce overall costs.”

Demand the same high quality

 

“Some managers may still be apprehensive about using refurbished forklifts, because they don’t expect them to meet the same quality standards as brand new equipment,” David explains. “When considering a refurbished truck, ensure that you are comfortable with the reputation of the manufacturer and their products – are they built to last?”


Hyster forklifts are renowned for being reliable, robust, dependable, and offer a low cost of ownership throughout their lifetime. The Hyster Approved Used programme offers a highly productive fully refurbished forklift truck, at a fraction of the price of a new machine.


The most commonly refurbished Hyster trucks are in the 2-3.5t capacity range and are designed for use in a variety of demanding applications including paper, wood, metals, manufacturing and logistics.


How will it affect your cost of operation?


Typically, the running and operating costs of a Hyster Approved Used unit will be similar to those of a new model, which means that this equipment will give many additional years of productive and cost-effective service.


“Fully refurbished Hyster Approved forklifts offer a very wise investment for the discerning end-user,” says David. “We welcome the trade-in of all types of forklifts and each customer’s service plan can be tailored to meet their specific needs.”


A range of flexible financing options are available through Hyster Financial Services. Designed to suit the end-user’s individual budgetary and application restraints, the Hyster Approved Used programme offers three separate grades of refurbished product; Bronze, which is excellent value for money; Silver, which is designed for more intensive use; and Gold, which is refurbishment to the highest standards.


For dependability and reliability, all Hyster equipment is offered with full parts and service support from a global network of local dealers.


“Hyster Approved Used units come with the reassurance of knowing that you also get the full backing of a major forklift manufacturer with a proven track record in after-sales care and customer service that can’t be matched by all companies,” says David.


Fully trained local service engineers from the European network of appointed dealerships will offer a high level of after sales support to ensure maximum uptime.


Typically ex-rental, all Approved Used units will have been maintained and serviced to the manufacturer’s standards, from new, by the dealership network. Units in the programme will be especially selected and come complete with an individual service history.


“Only genuine Hyster parts are fitted during the maintenance and refurbishment processes,” David adds. “A LOLER/PUWER certificate (or country equivalent) is provided with every truck and the equipment is fully warranted. Hyster also issues a certificate with each machine declaring that it has been approved by the manufacturer. All Approved Used units undergo a comprehensive series of stringent tests and inspections, allowing the customer to buy with confidence.”
