The cost of brand-new construction equipment has gotten incredibly steep in recent years. This unfortunate fact has driven the more financially-savvy of business owners toward the decision to purchase used construction equipment. If this is something that you have considered but have reservations about, this article is here to point out the numerous benefits of buying your construction equipment used. After you’re done here, peruse our wide inventory of used scissor lifts, boom lifts, telehandlers and more to find the exact machine that you need for your developing fleet of heavy construction equipment.
When you buy your used construction equipment from NLEQ, you can rest assured that you are purchasing used equipment of the highest caliber of quality. Most of our machines were very lightly used before they came into our possession, and each one has been refurbished and reviewed by our expert mechanics before being made eligible for sale. These machines function as if they are fresh off the manufacturer’s lot – but at about half the price!
If your aim is to amass a fleet of heavy construction equipment so that your business can accept any type of job that comes its way, you’re going to have an easier time doing so with used construction equipment. Because used construction equipment from NLEQ can cost as little as half the cost of buying the same type of equipment brand-new, you can grow your fleet twice as fast!
Most often, the latest models of telehandlers and boom lifts do not present any technological benefits that don’t exist in previous models. Your used machine will function just as well as the latest and most expensive – and it’s likely that that brand-new machine will find its way onto our lot after another updated model is made. We pride ourselves on keeping a wide inventory of the latest makes and models of heavy construction equipment, so you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for, just without the hefty price tag.
When you buy brand-new, the machine will immediately depreciate upon first use, as much as 40% of its initial value. Buying the equipment used, however, means that you do not have this depreciation factor to concern yourself with. The machinery will maintain the value that you purchased it at, meaning that you can recoup some of your cash when and if you choose to sell it to someone else.
When you rent equipment, you are essentially throwing away a portion of your project budget – never to recover that cost in any portion. This is particularly problematic if you find yourself renting the same piece of machinery over and over again. The rental fees associated with this process can add up quickly. Wouldn’t it feel kind of silly to spend as much on renting a piece of equipment over time as it would have cost to buy it outright?
When you want to save money that could you could put into other facets of your business, used construction equipment is the financially sound choice for you. With all of the benefits listed above in mind, you should browse our wide inventory of used telehandlers, boom lifts and more.
