Jungheinrich has announced the opening of seven specialist used forklift truck showrooms throughout the UK.
The showrooms are located alongside the company's existing regional facilities at Warrington, Sheffield, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Bristol, Llanelli and Cumbernauld and stock an extensive collection of products from Jungheinrich's Ready To Go range.
All of the used forklift trucks in the Jungheinrich Ready To Go collection have been rebuilt at the Jungheinrich Group's specialist used truck refurbishment centre in Dresden, Germany. Jungheinrich has recently doubled the capacity of the Dresden plant and the economies of scale created by this investment mean that the company is now able to offer significant cost efficiencies across its entire European used equipment fleet.
“While it will depend upon the specification, a used truck will, on average, cost around 60 per cent of the selling price of an equivalent new model,” says Neil Warren, Jungheinrich UK Ltd's Used Equipment and Short Term Rental Director.
“And,” he adds, “because all of the truck's in Jungheinrich's Ready To Go range are rebuilt to the same high standard at the Dresden facility, the operating cost will be the same as a new model, which means that our clients have the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that they are acquiring a product that will give many years of efficient and productive service.”
In addition to the models on display at the new showroom facilities, Jungheinrich is able to source trucks from across the group. Typically, if a customer requires a model that is not in stock at his or her local showroom, the desired truck can be sourced and delivered within 8 weeks.
“Because we operate a large contract hire fleet across Europe we know exactly what trucks are coming back and when,” explains Neil Warren. “Over the next three years we'll have over 100,00 trucks coming back from contract hire packages across the group, so if we can't find the truck you want it probably doesn't exist.”
