6 reasons to consider Approved Used platforms from APS

Many businesses like to buy products that are brand new – but now is a good time for an alternative approach, like sourcing Approved Used access platforms from APS.

Access Platform Sales is one of the UK’s most respected providers of used access platforms – with brands available that include Genie, Hinowa, Skyjack, BoSS, and Niftylift.

As the UK moved out of Covid-19 lockdown, we are busy helping our customers to flexibly and cost-effectively source the MEWPs they need with all the benefits of getting APS Approved Used deals.

That includes choosing from one of the largest ranges of quality used scissor lifts, cherry pickers, trailer mounts, spider boom lifts, tracked platforms, van and vehicle mounted booms, push-arounds and mast lifts in the UK.

APS Managing Director Steve Couling says: “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, access platform users are taking an understandably careful approach to MEWP investment.

“Our Approved Used access platform service is helping them purchase the right quality machines while controlling costs and making best use of capital budgets.”

APS has been promoting its Approved Used platforms with social media posts showcasing the ‘big six’ latest offers, see above. So, here are six reasons why it is worth considering Approved Used platforms.

  1. Reduced cost and risk

    APS’s Approved Used platforms allow our buys to reduce their investment costs and still get the mobile elevating working platforms (MEWPs) they need for less money.

  2. Excellent quality

    We only select machines that are worthy of re-use. All our Approved New platforms then undergo a rigorous inspection and are prepared to clearly defined Bronze, Silver and Gold standards.

    For example, work carried out on our Gold Standard platforms includes:

    • Fully repainted to an agreed specification so they look as good as they perform
    • Decals replaced and bodywork repaired
    • Engine serviced where applicable
    • Fil ters replaced
    • Hydraulic hoses replaced where damaged
    • New LOLER 98 report of thorough examination
    • Three-month parts and labour warranty (UK mainland)
  3. Fast and flexible fulfilment

    As the UK comes out of Covid-19 lockdown, we know our customers have a greater need than ever before to manage their access platform fleets flexibly and respond rapidly to business opportunities.

    APS’s Approved Used service is helping them do that. We can source, prepare and deliver specific access platforms very quickly, for example if they are needed for urgent projects.

  4. Strong return on investment

    Approved Used access platforms from APS can do just as good a job as most new MEWPs. That means purchase costs are reduced but rental incomes do not have to dip as well. APS used platforms also tend to hold their value so can be sold on at the right time with confidence.

  5. Excellent after-sales support

    Approved Used MEWPs from APS are backed by our industry-leading after-sales service. That includes excellent warranties, which can be extended for up to 12 months.

    Our network of highly experienced CAP-trained mobile engineers will resolve any repair issues quickly. APS also offers fixed-price service plans to keep platforms in the best condition.

  6. Trusted APS service

    As one of the UK’s largest independent suppliers of new and used access platforms, with strong reputation to protect, customers can trust APS’s Approved Used MEWP service.

    Our experienced technical sales team builds strong relationships with customers and can give expert advice to optimise fleet management, backed by flexible payment terms so budgets stretch further.
