Everything You Need To Know About Telehandler Sales In Houston Texas
Whether you work within the construction, industrial, petrochemical or agricultural industry, having access to the right equipment is tantamount to your success. Fortunately, you are able to get all of your lifting needs from Imperial Crane Services including telehandlers. Following are just a few things to keep in mind as you shop around for telehandlers.
First, it is important to decide whether you are better off purchasing a telehandler or renting one instead. This all comes down to several factors, how often is the unit going to be utilized and for how long? It may make more sense to purchase a unit if the utilization is going to be high but if you just need a telehandler occasionally you may be better off renting. Do you have the capability to transport this unit from job site to job site or are you going to have to outsource transportation? What about maintenance, do you have a mechanic on staff that can perform preventative maintenance items?
If you decide to purchase, you need to decide whether you want to purchase a used or a new machine. Even though you may be able to afford a larger machine used compared to a new unit at the same price point, new machines come with the latest safety features, and warranties. However there is little to be afraid of purchasing a machine with some hours on it given that it was taken care of properly and according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
If you choose to rent a telehandler in Houston Texas, there is no maintenance costs, or breakdowns you have to worry about, the only cost you are responsible for is fuel. Renting will also allow you to size a unit exactly to your needs for each job. For example, you may need a higher capacity unit with a little more stick for one job while needing more a compact unit with a smaller footprint for the next one.
Also pay attention to the local ordinances at your job site with regards to operator training and certification. Some jurisdiction require trained operators with licenses, while other jurisdictions do not require any training. If you do not have anyone on staff that is licensed to operate a machine Imperial Crane would be happy to provide you with one of our certified and experienced operators.
Another important factor to consider is the fact that a lot of dealers offer in-house financing when purchasing equipment. When using financing options to purchase your telehandler, you may find that many lenders prefer borrowers to either invest in brand new equipment, or to look for used options that have been factory reconditioned or diligently maintained throughout the years to minimize their downside risk and keep the residual value of the unit high.
