Increasingly, we read about industry awards - usually, manufacturers recognising their dealers or their suppliers. From time to time, dealers are recognised by the broader business community for their contributions and a number of large players have also picked up environmental or human resources accolades. What’s lacking, some believe, are the awards that count: customer rankings of their dealers and the forklift products they use. This recognition would be more meaningful to other end-users as it would validate some of the lofty claims we hear from the supply side. Interested in the idea? Maybe it’s something we can spearhead. Watch this space.

"One advantage to the leesor is that with a five-year deal, the residual value is set at a less amount than it would be at a three-year lease. Therefore, the leasing company would be getting back an asset that is worth much more than a 5 year unit.".
