Used prices rise

By Maria Hadlow18 October 2011

Jonnie Keys of Euro Auction reported that like a lot of plant, young/fresh access equipment has become scarce in the UK.

"A lot has been exported in the last two years, prices are stable but customers will pay a premium for low hour, young machines.

"We are not seeing huge consignments like we did in 2009 and 2010 but we are getting more consignors with a few machines at each auction.

"The brands that tend to export the best are Genie and JLG followed by Haulotte. Wheeled boomlifts such as Genie Z45/25 always prove especially popular."
