Used equipment - Save Money & Increase productivity

Training  How to save costs and increase productivity by buying pre-owned work at height equipment

In the current climate many businesses are looking to make some effective cost savings without cutting corners while increasing productivity when working at height.

Buying pre-owned work at height equipment can save money for your business as the equipment can work just as well as a brand-new version and can be more cost effective.

Used work at height equipment will have been well serviced by a professional

HLS pre-owned equipment will have been serviced and maintained professionally over its lifetime. This means that you get a quality machine for a fraction of the cost of a new machine and you can see the service record so can be confident that you are purchasing good quality equipment that has been professionally serviced.

As with any work at height equipment you have just bought you will need to maintain it to ensure that the machine is running efficiently and compliant with both LOLER and PUWER regulations.

The term ‘maintenance’ covers many activities, including inspection, testing, measurement, replacement and repairs, and is carried out in all sectors and workplaces. 

We can provide guidance on the annual costs to maintain your equipment when you purchase from us and we also provide a full after-sales service including MEWP maintenance and repair. Our service and maintenance agreements ensure you are compliant with both LOLER and PUWER regulations.

The benefits of a quality maintenance program include increased productivity and reduced downtime - we can work around your needs and provide contracts bespoke to your needs. 

Invest in quality used equipment from companies with a good reputation

If you are going to buy a piece of machinery, make sure you’re investing in quality. You’ll only end up spending money on expensive repairs — and eventually replacing the item — if you select an option that wasn’t made to last.

When you invest in equipment, source it  from a specialist provider with a good company reputation. 

At HLS we will ensure you achieve the greatest value both in price and quality of equipment. We will undertake a full inspection, service and thorough examination (LOLER) on each piece of equipment provided.

In summary

You can save costs when you purchase pre-owned equipment for your business without compromising on reliability. You can source equipment that has been serviced properly so you know that you are buying well maintained equipment which will last for many years to come. It’s also essential to work with a company that has a good reputation and will let you review and test the machine before you buy it.
