Tips For Purchasing A Boom Lift
Selecting the right boom lift will save you time and money in the long run, so we like to make sure customers are well informed before they even talk to a professional. Start with:
Understand your working height
The listed heights of boom lifts (40 foot for example) is where the operators feet will go, so you will need to add roughly 5 feet to the listed height to determine how high you will be able to operate. It is always important to make sure that your lift can handle the whole range of jobs your workplace may require, so we recommend getting a boom lift a few feet larger than you anticipate.
Budgeting for your needs
If you absolutely need a new boom lift, you will need to budget $40,000 to $90,000 for a smaller lift, and $100,000 to $400,000 or more for a larger boom lift up to 120 feet. If your budget is tight, a used boom lift will save you at least 50% on a model 3 years old or more. Note- when buying a used boom lift we recommend working with authorized manufacturer dealers who are trained to fully refurbish used lifts, compared to individual owners where it is more difficult to determine the quality of lift you are getting.
Selecting a manufacturer
Less established boom lift manufacturers produce less quality equipment in general, but you can find some cost savings up front. However when you buy from top brands like Terex, Skyjack, JLG, Genie and Aichi you will find that the servicing the equipment will cost less over the course of three years or more. If you want to dig further into specific manufacturers you can look at a few major associations including the HDMA which will give you a good idea of the companies' place in the industry.
