Jungheinrich tackles used FLT market

Jungheinrich is stepping up its efforts in the used truck market in a move to deal with the thousands of forklifts expected to return from expiring contracts over the next few years.

The group has doubled the capacity at its central, used truck refurbishment plant in Dresden, Germany accordingly.

The rebuilt trucks, coined the Ready to Go range due to the added benefit of their instant availability, will cost around 60 per cent less than an equivalent new vehicle.

At the Dresden plant all returning trucks are rebuilt as new, involving new wheels and component replacements, through to a fresh lick of paint. 

Seven specialist used forklift truck showrooms have been set up across the UK to host the range, with all truck varieties available, except very narrow aisle.

The forklift manufacturer will see 100,000 trucks return from contract hire packages over the next three years.
