Full approval for used truck
12 December 2012
When Colchester upholstery manufacturer, Alstons Upholstery, needed a cost-effective replacement for its 5t forklift truck which had reached the end of its life, a solution was found in the form of a Linde approved truc
Michael Parker, engineering & facilities manager, researched the market for new and second hand trucks to find a reliable vehicle for the business needs.
He said: "A truck of the right capacity was just one element of the purchasing decision. I looked at many criteria from service response to truck design. I needed a truck suitable for the application that was reliable and cost effective with the service backup should things go wrong. Once I'd stacked up all the costs, buying an Approved Used truck from Linde made the most sense and seeing the trucks refurbished to such a high standard means that they end up just like new and are a more cost effective solution."
