Understanding Your Needs for Material Handling Equipment


Are you contemplating the acquisition or rental of a forklift or pallet truck to bolster your business operations in Singapore? With a plethora of brands and suppliers to choose from, making an informed decision is paramount, especially considering the substantial investment these types of equipment represent.


1. Post-Sale Support: A Vital Aspect of Your Investment


After-sales support is crucial. When selecting a supplier, consider their history of support after the purchase. Scantruck, established in 1984 in the Singaporean forklift sector, boasts extensive experience servicing a wide range of forklifts, catering to varied industries and applications across Singapore, ensuring comprehensive post-purchase support for your forklift needs.

2. Spare Part Availability: Key to Long-Term Equipment Maintenance


The availability of spare parts is integral to the long-term cost-effectiveness of your equipment. Confirm the ease of procuring spare parts and the availability of aftermarket components. Scantruck provides a range of spare part options, including genuine, OEM, and aftermarket parts, ensuring optimal value.


3. Assessing Resale Value: A Critical Economic Consideration


The resale value is an essential factor; lower initial costs do not always equate to better value. Brands like Komatsu, popular in Singapore and internationally, offer robust resale value. Evaluate how the brand will fare in the future market.
