What Do I Do with Material Handling Equipment?

Suppose you’ve recently upgraded your pallet jack and forklifts to increase the safety and efficiency of your fleet. In that case, you may be wondering what to do with your used material handling equipment that is taking up space. 

Rather than cluttering your work environment and wasting storage space on used equipment, you may consider selling your used equipment. 

Reasons to Sell Your Material Handling Equipment

Keeping your used equipment that is no longer added value to your operations can compromise your operations' productivity and safety. When you choose to sell your used forklifts through a forklift dealership like Trupar America, you can recoup some of your initial investments, open more storage space, and provide newer organizations with a way to equip their operations at a budget-friendly cost. 

Why Should I Work with a Material Handling Wholesale Company?

The are various benefits to working with a material handling wholesale company when selling your used equipment, including financial, spatial, and environmental benefits. These companies purchase used material handling equipment, like forklifts, in bulk. This allows you to collect payment upfront while the material handling wholesale company handles offloading the equipment. 
You can also count on getting a fair and accurate price for your used equipment, allowing you to get the best possible return on your investment. 

What are the Environmental and Spatial Benefits?

When it comes to environmental benefits, working with Trupar American to sell your used material handling equipment helps to reduce the waste going into your local landfills. When you sell your used forklifts, they can be refurbished or resold to other companies rather than being sent to the dump. This is a great way to help reduce your company’s carbon footprint. 

Also, when you get rid of used equipment, you can create more usable space. This can help increase productivity and create a safer working environment rather than an overcrowded or unorganized workspace.

Forklift Safety Checklist

  At Trupar America, we recommend using a forklift checklist to your operator, and managers ensure that safety programs remain on track. If you are already using a checklist, take the time to compare yours to the list we are presenting.  If you have not yet implemented the use of a checklist, consider reviewing the list below and adapting it to your needs so it can be easily integrated as a mandatory part of your team’s daily routine.  Visual Equipment Inspection Checklist Check the forklift for any apparent problems or missing components. Check the floor and work area for any hazards or obstacles. Check for overhead obstructions that could catch on or interfere with the overhead guard. Confirm that the fire extinguisher is present in the work area and that it is charged and working.  Inspect the battery and cable for a charge and tight connections. Check fluid levels for oil, fuel, and radiator fluid.  Check all chain anchor pins. Make sure the wheels and tires are free of damage and

Should I Rent or Lease a Forklift?

Forklifts can be an expensive investment, and purchasing one may not be in your budget right now. Fortunately, you can lease or rent a forklift, rather than purchasing one outright.  Leasing a Forklift When you choose to lease a forklift, you can do so with little to no money down, spreading your payments for the forklift out over a number of years, typically one to five. After your lease expires, you can then exchange the machinery for a newer model, purchase the machinery, or return machinery.  When it comes to forklift leases or forklift rentals in Pittsburgh, Trupar America has top-quality inventory for you to choose from.  Renting a Forklift Unlike leasing, you will not have the option to purchase the machinery after your rental period has ended. If you plan to use the forklift for a short job, you can choose short-term rental options for days, weeks, or months. Long-term rentals are also available that can last for 12 months or more.  What Does it Cost to Rent/Lease a Forklift?

How Long Will A Forklift Last?

 The age of a forklift is measured by the hours of operation. On average, a single-shift operation with a regular 8-hour workday will run a forklift for 2,000 hours per year. Most forklifts will last for a lifespan of roughly 10,000 hours. The lifespan of the forklift will vary based on the manufacturer due to the quality of the parts and the craftsmanship.  Factors that Can Speed up Aging in Forklifts There are a variety of factors that can lead to faster aging in forklifts. In addition to how long the forklift, factors that contribute to more rapid aging include: Lifting heavy stacks often Use on multiple shifts per day Operation in colder temperatures Lack of proper maintenance Two forklifts that are the same age can still have different life expectancies depending on the conditions they were operated. A forklift that was used mainly indoors in cleaner conditions for lighter loads will likely last much longer than a forklift that has been exposed to harsh temperatures or used consis
