Used Cranes For Sale: Advantages Of Used Cranes Over New Cranes

When you are in the market for an additional crane, you will have the option to buy new or used lifting equipment. Many businesses are choosing used cranes, as they offer good cost savings and can easily be as useful and reliable as brand new cranes would be.

These are some of the benefits of choosing a used crane over a new crane:

• Lower cost. The main benefit of choosing a used crane as opposed to buying a new one is the amount of money you stand to save. You can find high-quality used cranes for sale that will operate just as effectively as new ones, but often, you can make considerable cost savings.

• Better for the environment. Businesses are always looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute towards a better environment. Buying second hand can really help, reducing your impact upon the planet. This is something you might want to highlight as part of your corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, showing your customers that you are a responsible business and you are taking positive steps to reuse, recycle and reduce waste.

• You will know its full history. As with any type of mechanical equipment, it’s rare to find faults with new models – but it is not impossible. When you buy a new crane (especially a jib crane that is highly technical and could include many movable parts), it will never have been used before in an industrial, manufacturing or construction setting. If you buy a used crane, it will have been operated in these settings and everything will be known about its history. It’s highly likely that any faults will already have been discovered by its previous owner and picked up during servicing.

Bear in mind that you must always source cranes and lifting equipment from reputable suppliers, who are well known for quality within the lifting industry.
