The lift truck market in North America is at an all-time record high in the material handling industry. Total retail orders in all classes, excluding exports, totaled 225,534 units in 2015. It is the first year lift truck sales are higher than the industry's pre-recession level of 215,000 units in 2006.
Perhaps one of the most significant contributions the internet has made to our daily lives (outside of being able to connect with people we never spoke to and didn't even know in high school) is the ability to find the rock-bottom price for just about anything we need to purchase easily. With a quick search on the right keywords, or a visit to megasites such as Amazon.com or eBay, we can find exactly what we're looking for and save a lot of money to boot. Or so it would seem.
