If you’ve decided that used makes the most sense for your next machine, you’ll find plenty of options on the market. So why choose Cat® Used? Here are three reasons it’s your best choice:
Most used inventory at your local Cat dealer comes from the rental fleet, trade-ins or lease returns. Every dealer handles the process differently, but in most cases, Cat Used machines are inspected, appraised, cleaned and filled with fluids before they go up for sale. You can ask to see the inspection or appraisal so you know exactly what you’re getting, and many dealers offer warranties. You also have the option of Cat Certified Used equipment, which undergoes an extremely thorough inspection process and comes backed with a Caterpillar warranty.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about finding parts or G.E.T. for your Cat Used equipment. No one offers better or faster availability than your local Cat dealer. Most parts, even for machines that are decades old, can be in your hands in 24 hours — keeping your downtime to a minimum.
Attend an auction or browse a used website, and it quickly becomes clear there are more Cat machines on the used market than other brands. Why? Because Cat equipment is built to last. In fact, it’s built to last for multiple lives. Modular components that can be replaced or rebuilt let you return a Cat Used machine to like-new condition at a fraction of the cost of buying new.
In addition, your Cat dealer’s extensive capabilities — including dedicated rebuild technicians, engine dynamometers, cylinder repairs, full fabrication shops and much more — help ensure you get the most life and performance from your used machine. Ask your local dealer for a tour. It’s the best way to gain a real understanding of the service difference.
When it’s time to sell or trade in your used machine, you get more with Cat Used. It holds its value longer than other brands, due in large part to the longevity and re-buildability described above. Used machines sold and serviced through your Cat dealer can see even stronger resale value, thanks to meticulous maintenance, genuine Cat parts and documented service records.
