Maximize Profitability with Better Telehandler Resale Value

White Papers - Feb 18

Equipment utilization and uptime directly impact your revenue. That means factors beyond your initial investment, like operational costs, resale value and machine reliability, can impact your bottom line. This report from nxtMOVE explores how the resale value of telehandlers plays into total cost of ownership.

What is telehandler resale value?

There are many things to consider at the point of purchase. One that can be overlooked is resale value. Resale value is the idea that a well-maintained machine from a market-leading brand will get you the best resale price when you divest the machine.

When you know which telehandlers are most likely to give you a greater resale value down the line, you can position your business to capitalize on long-term profitability. And not only will you have the highest performing machines powering your fleet, but you will have the capital to sustain continued growth.
