Forkliftaction.com, the world's largest forklift and materials handling web portal, is to launch a marketplace for used equipment.
Executive director Michael Leu said the Forkliftaction.com's sales team is busy populating the database with used equipment from most world regions, covering all machine categories; narrow aisle trucks through to full container handling reach stackers.
The new Marketplace will utilise Forkliftaction.com's global community of industry professionals to ensure interest and solid enquiries for all advertisers. The industry portal currently receives more than 70,000 visits per month, and is responsible for 2,000,000 hits.
"The Marketplace has been designed to deliver local, national and international transaction capability for both dealers and end users," Mr Leu added.
Users will be able to search by geographical location the type, brand, model, age, hours, price, lift capacity and lift height. Purchased equipment prices can be converted to a choice of currencies: USD($), CAD($), GBP(£), Euro(€) and AUD($)
Photographs of machinery are important said Mr Leu. "From our experience and research, we know that internet advertisements which feature multiple photos and include a selling price, will achieve up to 50% more enquiries than those without."
