Today The Forklift Center launched a site aimed at helping forklift specialists and material handling professionals research and find the best equipment for warehouses and distribution facilities in the U.S. and Canada.
First time buyers and industry veterans alike can find forklift manufacturer detail and study cost benefit analysis of buying a new vs. used forklifts all in one place. The Forklift Center wants to break new ground as a cost comparison tool for the small business that doesn’t have time to spend hours on the phone or updating spreadsheets. Business can search by radius for both equipment and repair services for just about any type of warehouse equipment in under five minutes. After they research and compare manufacturer profiles, specs, etc. they are then able to compare pricing by answering a few questions about their needs. Local dealers then compete for their business and help make sure they get the best deal.
The Website is designed to help business owners decide what type of forklift to buy, whether to own or rent and more. It allows users to research the equipment, the price ranges, the capacities, average maintenance costs and compare all of these factors between different types of equipment. The Forklift Center puts this information at users’ fingertips for the first time ever in an unbiased way that does not lean toward one manufacturer over another, with simple charts and well researched price ranges that serve as a good starting point for comparing local forklift options.
