Used Toyota Forklifts

Are you looking for a used Toyota forklift? If so, you’ve come to the right place. The Toyota name is synonymous with quality, and the name is synonymous with service. As one of the internet's fastest growing sources for used forklifts for sale, we are proud to have a large selection of Toyota lift trucks in our inventory.

Kaizen: The Toyota Business Model

Kaizen, a Japanese word meaning “continuous improvement,” is so central to the Toyota business model, when many people hear it, they immediately think of Toyota:

  • Kaizen begins at the design stage. Every new model or line offers improvements on the last.

  • Kaizen is evident in Toyota’s lean manufacturing strategy. Back when Toyota opened its first factory in the United States, the company strove to keep quality standards high and costs down by manufacturing on demand.

  • Kaizen extends even to used Toyota forklifts. A used Toyota forklift must first pass a rigorous 103 point checklist before it can carry the “Toyota Certified Used Forklift” label.

Founded in 1966 in Effingham, Illinois, like Toyota, the Bahrns business model has always been one of continuous improvement. Part of this ongoing process of improvement has been the continuous expansion of Bahrns’ range of products. For decades, the central Illinois business community has turned to Bahrns for all their industrial supplies and equipment because they have come to trust Bahrns for all their needs.

By the time the internet age arrived and Bahrns began offering their services online, their product range was so large, it could not fit on just one website.

In fact, finding used Toyota forklifts on is a better and easier way to find what you need than visiting a showroom in person.

Used Forklift Classifications

We offer 3 general classifications of used forklifts:

  1.  “As is” forklifts have been inspected by the Bahrns team of technicians, but not serviced. The advantage to the consumer is that you will know exactly what condition your used lift truck is in, but will pay less for it.

  2. An “operational guarantee” is your guarantee that the forklift you buy is in operational condition.
  3. “Reconditioned forklifts” are Toyota Certified Reconditioned forklifts. If you are looking for a used Toyota forklift and want to know you are getting a quality piece of equipment, this is what you’re looking for. Only dealers like Bahrns Equipment are authorized by Toyota to sell Toyota Certified Reconditioned forklifts.

For more information about these classifications, check out our About Reconditioned Forklift Types page. We cover everything you need to know about the Toyota certification system in our article, About Toyota Certified Reconditioned Forklifts.
