Growing interest in used bucket trucks
With the price of new bucket trucks reaching unobtainable levels for small businesses, used bucket trucks are gaining in sales and interest. New Equipment is pretty much reserved for large corporations or heavily funded businesses. Most small to medium companies are preferring used bucket trucks these days.
Used bucket trucks are a great investment because for several reasons, mostly cost. The cost of used aerial lift trucks is considerably less than the new version. Why pay up to 50% more for a brand new piece of equipment when you can buy used?
Another important selling point for used bucket trucks is that they are past the break-in period. Engines and other parts of lift trucks have a suggested break in period. Also, most manufacturers will tell you, if something is going to break, it will do so within the first 30k miles.
It's possible to buy used bucket trucks with the warranty still intact. Purchasing a truck with the warranty still in effect is a good way to save money and increase peace of mind. It never hurts to have the added security of a warranty.
If you need more peace of mind, I suggest buying a reconditioned bucket truck. Reconditioned dealers are located all over the United States and some are more reputable than others. Be cautious when buying a reconditioned bucket truck. One of the most highly recommended dealers is Southwest Equipment. They sell and rent nationwide and they are one of the oldest and most trusted dealers of reconditioned used bucket trucks in the industry.
