How We Source Our Pre-Owned Equipment

We have multiple ways that we source our pre-owned forklifts in New Jersey and New York:

Large Customer Base in New Jersey and New York

Our customer base includes:

  • 3PL Warehousing and Fulfillment Operations
  • Grocery Distribution Centers
  • Beverage Distribution
  • Lumber and Building Supply Companies
  • Trucking Companies
  • Pharmaceutical Companies
  • Printing and Packaging Operations

These customers typically buy new equipment on a three- or five-year lease term with a maintenance program ranging from regular operational maintenance intervals to full maintenance coverage. This assures that the equipment is in top operating condition throughout the lease contract term. Once the contract terminates, Barclay acquires this equipment for resale.

The equipment we acquire from our customer base includes:

  • Very Narrow Aisle Turret Trucks
  • Reach Trucks
  • Order Pickers
  • Pallet Jacks
  • End Rider or Walk Behind Versions
  • Sit or Stand-up Electric Lifts
  • LPG – Gas or Diesel Model Forklifts for Outdoor Environments

We also acquire any installed hydraulic specialty attachments like carton clamps, paper roll clamps, rotators and more, which we offer for sale as used forklift equipment.

Our pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing customers are often required to have EX-rated equipment in their operation, which can undergo a leasing and re-selling process as pre-owned equipment after our careful inspection process. This practice provides us with a continuous abundance and variety of industrial material handling equipment for sale that has been maintained by our factory-certified technicians since installation.

Our Short-Term Rental Fleet

While others source used or off-lease equipment, Barclay is one of the few material handling dealers in New Jersey and New York that purchases brand-new equipment from manufacturers designated for the short-term rental fleet. Our aggressive rental fleet replenishment program allows customers to try the most recent models and the latest technologies when they have short-term and seasonal equipment needs in their operation.

As more and more advanced technologies are being adopted and built into new industrial warehouse equipment to make it safer, more productive and efficient, we want to ensure we bring that technology to our customers regularly. We outfit our equipment with the latest safety options as they become available, such as:

  • Upgraded seat belts
  • Lights
  • Backup alarms
  • More advanced vehicle-pedestrian spotlights
  • Motion sensors
  • Telematics
  • Stability systems

Fully maintained by our factory-certified technicians, our rental fleet is typically turned over in three to five years, enabling us to have a great source of used equipment for sale.

How We Take the Worry out of Buying Used With Industrial Batteries and Chargers

We follow a similar rental process for our industrial batteries and chargers that power our short-term rental fleet. Our partner, EnerSys, provides us with the latest motive power technologies and the best service and support. We offer low-maintenance power options like Nexsys and Lithium-Ion technology in our rental equipment to reduce the maintenance issues that can develop from overwatering or not following proper charging protocols. This protects the equipment during its rental lifetime.

Our Get Ready and Inspection Process – Quality Guarantee

Customers have three different options when purchasing pre-owned equipment from Barclay:

1. “Barclay-Conditioned”

“Barclay-conditioned” pre-owned equipment is fully reconditioned, top quality and comes with a full warranty. These units are available only after an extensive 300-point inspection and a quality paint job before receiving the final facelift of new tires. Our inspection process covers the following:

  • All moving parts
  • Fluids
  • Safety items
  • Cooling systems
  • Brakes
  • Lift cylinders
  • Starters
  • Engine
  • Drive train

As part of our comprehensive inspection process, we send out the radiators on IC units for testing. As we inspect the motor, we install new brushes on electric units and perform a three-day discharge test on the batteries. If needed, we will replace the battery cells and adjust the acid.

We offer a six-month warranty for all batteries and chargers for units to be “Barclay-conditioned." Compared to our “Rent Ready” process, we put an additional 15 to 20 hours into the detail and painting process.

2. “Rent Ready”

All our “Rent Ready” units undergo a 200-point inspection process, including a 30-day bumper-to-bumper warranty. To ensure units are “Rent Ready,” we perform the following:

  • Change the tires if they are less than 75%
  • Inspect the radiators and send them out if they're leaking
  • Inspect and replace the electric unit motors and brushes if they are less than 75%
  • Have all batteries undergo a hydraulic load and specific gravity test

3. “As Is”

“As Is” units are usually those we did not own or maintain over the life of the truck and tend to be more affordable than our “Barclay-Conditioned” and “Rent Ready" options. We inspect all lift truck safety items for proper operation.

Our approach makes available a safe, reliable, quality product that beats the competition and provides excellent value. Complete a quote request today and visit our website for a broader listing of units currently available.

Used Equipment Rent to Own and Flexible Financing Options
