You may or may not have noticed, but the price of cherry pickers has been steadily increasing in recent years. Because of this, many savvy business owners are choosing to purchase used cherry pickers instead. The benefits of doing so are innumerable, with the biggest and most obvious benefit being the significantly reduced cost.
A used cherry picker costs less than half of what you can expect to spend when buying brand-new from the manufacturer. This allows you to spend more of your business’ available funds on other aspects of the trade, like salaries for employees, general overhead expenses, and building a fleet of construction equipment to help your business to grow.
Get a Quicker Return on Your Investment
A cherry picker, like any other piece of heavy machinery you may use, is an investment. You don’t want it to take forever for you to get a solid return on an investment. If you buy brand-new cherry pickers, it will take longer for that investment to return itself to you. Used cherry pickers, due to their greatly smaller price tag, won’t leave you struggling to make that money back.
Avoid Depreciation Rates
The first time you use a brand-new cherry picker, its value will decline by at least 20%. In this way, buying new boom lifts is a lot like buying a new car. You take it off the lot and, boom, the item is already worth substantially less. This means that, when it comes time to sell the machine, you will be facing a guaranteed loss.
If you wish to part with a cherry picker that you bought used, you don’t have to worry about depreciation rates. If the machine remains in good condition, you will get more money back on the purchase when reselling it. Used lifts retain their value significantly better, and for much longer, than brand-new ones.
