Buying a forklift is not a small investment and it shouldn’t be treated as such. When pursuing the purchase of a new forklift or forklift fleet there are a wide variety of considerations to take into account. And not all of these are singularly focused on forklift specs. At Toyota, we realize that the decision to invest in any piece of capital equipment takes time and consideration.
In our effort to help you better assess your forklift purchases, use the below guide to help you make the best possible decisions. We’ve divided the guide into two sections. The first pertains directly to equipment. The second to other considerations to take into account before you buy a forklift.
Developing a thorough understanding of the available products, and, just as importantly, your own operation where those forklifts will be operated, is the first key in making a decision on what forklift to buy. Take time to reflect on your operation and consider how it can be optimized if you select certain types of equipment. Using the questions below is a good starting place; when ready, you can contact your locally authorized Toyota dealer to get inquiries more specific to your unique needs.
