• Approved Used Programme

    AFFORDABILITY, RELIABILITY AND HIGH PERFORMANCE

    Quality refurbished forklift equipment, offering affordability, reliability and high performance.

    Manufacturer Approved Used forklifts from your local Hyster® Dealer, offer a highly productive and reliable forklift truck at a fraction of the price of a new machine. Hyster® machines are renowned for their robust and durable construction. Fully refurbished and alongside full parts and service support from your local Hyster Dealer, these forklifts offer a very wise investment for the discerning end-user.

    Hyster® forklift trucks have a world-wide reputation for quality and innovation. Our Approved Used units offer the opportunity to own or rent forklifts with many years of reliable usage ahead.

    Typically ex-rental, all Approved Used machines will have been maintained and serviced from new to the manufacturer’s standards by our European dealership network. Units in the programme will be especially selected and come complete with an individual service history. Only genuine Hyster® parts are fitted during the maintenance and refurbishment processes. A LOLER/PUWER certificate (or country equivalent) is provided with every truck and the equipment is fully warranted.

    Hyster Approved Used units offer superb value for money with a wide range of flexible and highly competitive financial options, whether for rental or purchase, available through Hyster Financial Services. All units will meet the latest EU directives and safety regulations.

    Fully trained local service engineers from our European network of appointed dealerships, will offer an unrivalled level of after sales support to ensure maximum uptime. Your service plan can be tailored to meet your needs. We welcome the trade-in of all types of used forklifts.
