Top 5 Advantages of Buying a Used Toyota Forklift

Material Handling Best Practices, Tips, Information and More from Toyota

When you’re looking to buy a forklift, you may start to wonder if you should purchase it new or used. To help guide your decision making, take a look at these five advantages to buying used:

  1. The process can be quicker. Purchasing equipment can take a bit of time between financing and closing the deal. One great thing about purchasing used equipment is that it tends to be a faster closing process.30---7FBCU45_05

  2. It can be cheaper. Of course, one may purchase a forklift that needs a large amount of work, which could end up being more expensive in the long run, but usually, purchasing a used forklift will be cheaper.

  3. You can purchase something great. You may be limited in what you can afford to buy new, but buying used may allow you to buy a better forklift than you thought you could afford new.

  4. You can get the same great quality. If you purchase a Toyota Certified Used forklift, it’s guaranteed to be the same great quality as the other forklifts Toyota sells. Each certified forklift undergoes a 103-point quality inspection before receiving the certification.*

  5. You'll gain more profit.  Your bottom line gets bigger when your procurement costs are less. You can actually lower your cost of sale and increase your profit margin!


Having a brand-new, shiny forklift is fun and exciting, but sometimes buying used is the best option. For help deciding if used is right for you, contact your local Toyota forklift dealer.
