Why choose a used forklift?

The cost saving is undoubtedly the main pull towards buying used forklifts over brand new vehicles. But there are other benefits too, which shouldn’t be overlooked. There are all sorts of reasons businesses opt for used forklifts over new. Here are six of them:

    1. Upfront savings – some used trucks can be as much as half the price of new trucks.
    2. Ease of use – older models may not necessarily require the additional training that’s sometimes required to operate new technology and features.
    3. Availability – the used trucks tend we have available can be sourced more quickly.
    4. Sustainable – there’s often no need to buy brand new for a vehicle that will have low to moderate use. Used forklifts for sale are the renewable choice.
    5. Variety – there’s a wide range of used trucks out there, which means you might be able to find a machine that perfectly fits your needs.
    6. Efficiency – if your new truck is only going to be used occasionally and not to its full potential, then you’ll wind up paying for unused capacity. In these circ*mstances, a used forklift is a much wiser business choice.

Used forklifts Q&A

Can I drive a used forklift without a licence?

Technically, a licence is not needed to drive a forklift – in fact, a specific forklift ‘licence’ does not exist. However, there are standards and requirements set out by the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) that must be followed. This includes ensuring you have the appropriate training to drive a forklift truck.

Forklift training should be undertaken by an expert who has a thorough understanding of the HSE requirements and can deliver the correct training. Casual training can be dangerous, so ensure you choose a trainer with the credentials needed. At Moorgate, we have been providing forklift driver training in Leeds for over 30 years. Our courses are suitable for beginners through to experts who need a refresher, and can be carried out at your site for convenience.

Can you use a diesel forklift indoors?

A diesel forklift truck is heavy-duty and robust, ideal for use outdoors and on rough terrain. We would not recommend using diesel forklifts indoors for an extended period due to their potentially harmful fumes and emissions.

Can you use an electric forklift in the rain?

Generally, electric forklifts are best suited to indoor work within large warehouses and factories. This is because compared to other options, they are quiet, more compact, and fume-less. If you’re looking for a truck specifically for outdoor work, an electric truck might not be the best option.

Whether or not an electric forklift can be used in the rain depends on its IP code, which will tell you how water-resistant it is. Generally, though, we would not recommend operating an electric forklift truck in the rain.

How do I register a forklift for road use?

If you plan on using a forklift truck on a public road, even for short distances or periods of time, there are requirements that you need to adhere to. Forklifts used on public roads must be registered with the DVLA, taxed and insured, and operated by a driver with a full UK driving license. They should also display license plates and be fitted with appropriate lighting.

Find out more about using a forklift as a work vehicle on the UK government website. To register a forklift for road use with the DVLA, you must fill out a V55/5 form which you can obtain online or from your local DVLA office.

Where can I sell my used forklift?

Many forklift suppliers will also buy used trucks. If you need a used forklift truck taken off your hands, we can help. At Moorgate we buy all makes and models of forklift trucks, helping you to free up your site. We can arrange a visit to assess the forklift(s) you’re looking to sell, and we’ll provide you with a quote soon after.
