Access platforms, such as telehandlers, articulating booms, scissor lifts, and cherry pickers can seem like a big investment when you are on the lookout for a new model for your elevated projects. However, when it comes to MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms), buying brand-new equipment straight from the store is not your only option to work at elevated heights. Sometimes, pre-owned or used access platforms (such as a used spider lift, used cherry picker for sale, etc.) that meet your needs, while of course adhering to all the necessary safety requirements can be a great choice too.
If you want to own a top-of-the-range access machine without breaking the bank, you are at the right place. We, AFI Resale - are a part of the AFI group of companies and specialise in the sale of both new and used access platforms since 2006. The long-standing expertise of our sister company AFI-Uplift in the industry also gives us an added advantage and allows us to meet the diverse access equipment needs of our customers.
5 reasons you should consider shopping from AFI Resale:
1- We Offer Expert Assistance with Your Access Platform Purchase
With years of experience in the industry, we are well-equipped to advise you on which equipment is best for your specific needs. No matter which type of access platform for sale, you are looking for, our dedicated team of professionals will discuss with you your options and recommend the best one within your budget.
2- We Provide Detailed LOLER Background History on Our Rental Fleet
LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) is a regulation that has been put in place to monitor the use of lifting equipment. If your job involves working at elevated heights, it is your legal obligation to make sure that your aerial platform is in safe working order and that your team has received the necessary training to use the equipment safely.
At AFI Resale, we provide a detailed service history of our entire rental fleet, including detailed LOLER reports. This way, you can rest assured that the machine you are planning to purchase or rent has been maintained properly in our fleet. Our service and LOLER history documentation have a proper record of our ownership and operation of units from the time of their purchase as new. In the case of machines that were bought second-hand, we provide the LOLER history starting from when they were incorporated into our service & maintenance programme.
3- We Provide PDI or Pre-Delivery Inspection Reports
A PDI or Pre-delivery inspection is a functionality test performed on every piece of equipment after every hire. As all the machines in the AFI rental fleet receive regular pre-delivery inspection reports, you can rest assured that whichever machine you plan to buy from us has been kept in the best condition.
4- We Offer a Comprehensive Service Maintenance Agreement (SMA)
We offer a range of maintenance options to ensure that you get the most out of your equipment – whether you choose from our spider lifts, telehandlers, straight booms, or scissor lifts. Our comprehensive Service Maintenance Agreement (SMA) covers an annual service (including consumables), two mandatory LOLER inspections (legal requirement), certification and authorisation documents, and condition evaluation. Also, we are backed by a team of CAP certified engineers (by IPAF) that help you find the right service and maintenance package according to your needs and budget.
5- We Offer a Range of Finance Options
At AFI Resale, we make it easier and affordable for you to buy an access machine with our flexible finance options that allow costs to be payable over 36, 48, or 60 months. You can consider our finance options for operating lease, hire purchase, finance lease, long-term hire, and outright purchase.
