Our Used Material Handling Equipment for Sale

We have a large selection of material handling used equipment, including:

  • Forklifts: Pick up and move heavy pallet loads out of trucks and throughout the job site.
  • Pallet jacks: Use this man-powered machine to unload trucks or move pallets around your facility.
  • Personnel carriers: Get your crew to where they need to be at the job site, especially if the area is limited or has a rugged terrain.
  • Scrubber and sweeper combos: Keep your facility extra clean with a machine that both scrubs and sweeps the floors.
  • Sweepers: Get dirt and debris off the floor with an industrial sweeper machine.
  • Telehandlers: Place and retrieve loads to and from hard to reach locations with the boom of a telehandler.
  • Trailers: Transport larger loads in the spacious bed of a trailer.
  • Utility vehicles and carts: Carry small and lightweight loads around the work site by placing them in the bed of a utility vehicle or cart.


When it comes to industrial equipment, there is no machine more versatile than the forklift. On a basic level, forklifts move items around, which is an important job function in many industries. From the truck or trailer to storage to the job site — or in reverse — forklifts make it possible to get large quantities of palletized materials where they need to be.

  • Counterbalanced forklift
  • Pallet jack
  • Walkie stacker

Also called a teleporter, boom lift or telescopic handler, a telehandler is a combination of a crane and a forklift. These machines are like a crane in that they have a long boom to reach high-up places, and the forklift helps place and remove materials at that elevation. For many jobs, the telehandler can take the place of a backhoe loader or tractor loader.

It’s a beneficial machine to have in your fleet because of its:

  • Height: A telehandler can reach anywhere from 19 to 54 feet, which is much higher than even a large forklift can extend.
  • Weight capacity: The average weights a telehandler can lift range from 4,400 to 12,000 pounds, which is more than a crane can manage.
  • Versatility: The forklift end of the telehandler can be swapped out with multiple attachments, making it useful for different tasks at the same job site or across many jobs.
  • Off-road capabilities: Telehandlers can drive across rough terrain, so they will handle well at off-road job sites.

We have standard sized telehandlers as well as compact models, which have the regular features of a telehandler in a smaller, more maneuverable form factor.
