Shopping for used equipment?

Terex now makes it easy for customers to shop for and purchase used equipment with the launch of www.terex.com/used. This online resource allows construction contractors to access spec information, photos and MSRP on used construction, roadbuilding and aerial work platform equipment for sale through Terex.
 
“We know that customers today are making equipment decisions differently because of the economy,” said John Poag, operations sales manager, Terex Construction Americas. “Savvy contractors know that buying used equipment can be a smart way to reduce investment cost and increase profit margins."

Terex lists all available used equipment inventory on www.terex.com/used, allowing customers to ‘shop’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for what they need.”
 
To determine whether to invest in “new” used equipment, Poag suggests that customers do an  acquisition cost versus utilization rate analysis. “Some questions to consider are: Will this piece of equipment allow you to do more specialized jobs? Will it allow you to do your current jobs more quickly and efficiently? Will having this piece of equipment allow you to do jobs that your competitors are not capable of,” says Poag. “All of these questions will help determine if used is a better option than new.”
 
Once a customer selects a piece of equipment to purchase from www.terex.com/used, representatives from Terex Construction Americas and Terex Financial Services enlist the customer’s nearest authorized Terex distributor to complete the sale.
