A New Look

Atlas International Lift Trucks recently launched its new website, This site brings a new dimension to material handling dealers looking to buy or sell used forklifts and related material handling equipment. Many of the site's new features and fine-tuning were a result of online user suggestions and experience. These features include faster and more intuitive “Quick Search” tools, real-time inventory access, automatic e-mail notifications of new equipment arrivals, and a multi-lingual site that serves both English- and Spanish-speaking visitors. The various search tools have been fine-tuned to allow the user to narrow down results using specific criteria including the truck's year, model and lifting capacity. Registered users can also order Atlas' Forklift Serial Number Guide online as well as sell their used material handling equipment.
