Yanmar launches new service to help hire firms update fleet

YANMAR Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) has introduced a used equipment remarketing service to help hire firms update their fleets without the “inconvenience” of re-selling existing machines.

The manufacturer said it pledges to evaluate and purchase existing rental machines, offsetting the value against new Yanmar models. Available through approved dealers, the proposition applies to “all sizes, ages and brands” of equipment.

Working in partnership with industrial vehicle marketplace MASCUS, Yanmar explained that it will manage the resale of each used model.

Olivier Crahay, remarketing manager at Yanmar CEE said, “Providing operators with state-of-the-art rental equipment is essential for plant hire companies worldwide. Unfortunately, this often requires investing in new machinery while existing fleet models sit in the yard awaiting resale – a huge financial drain. Our remarketing service aims to make refreshing your fleet quick and easy, while alleviating the issue of selling used equipment. In result, we hope to increase operator access to the latest Yanmar models.”
