Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) has launched a used equipment remarketing service to help plant hire firms update their fleets.
The company pledges to evaluate and purchase existing rental machinery, offsetting the value against new Yanmar models.
Available through dealers across the UK and Ireland, the service will allow plant managers to invest in state-of-the-art equipment without the inconvenience of re-selling their current fleet. Convenient, comprehensive and cost-effective, the remarketing proposition applies to all sizes, ages and brands of equipment.
Working in partnership with Mascus, the industrial vehicle marketplace, Yanmar will manage the ongoing 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.”
Yanmar’s used equipment remarketing service will be available through approved dealers across the UK and Ireland from 1st January 2019.
Nine Yanmar dealerships open
Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) opened nine new dealers to its UK and Ireland Network in December
Each dealer will be responsible for distributing Yanmar’s latest portfolio of excavators, loaders and crawlers.
David Cockayne and Bart Verstraete, Area sales managers at Yanmar CEE, said: “The UK and Northern Ireland construction market is a key area of focus for us. We are proud to announce the first appointments to our network, which will significantly expand our national coverage.
“With a wide range of loaders, carriers and both tracked and wheeled excavators, from 1 to 12-tonne payloads, we are bringing European innovation to construction professionals nationwide. When designing and building our machines, we aim to create the most reliable, safe, robust equipment to meet market requirements.”
