Used prices rise
18 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."
