Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) continues to take the guesswork out of buying used machines with the opening of a new Volvo Certified Used Center in New Jersey. The company has partnered with Hoffman Equipment to establish a Volvo Certified Used Center in Deptford, New Jersey that will serve the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. It’s Volvo CE’s third Certified Used Center, and it follows the opening of centers in Nevada and Michigan over the course of the last 16 months.
Volvo CE and its dealer network intend to provide customers with the best equipment lifecycle values in the construction industry. The Certified Used Centers enable Volvo CE to raise the value of machines into their second lives, when they enter the used market, by working with dealers to provide equipment to customers that has been thoroughly inspected and certified, offering an alternative to the auction market. All of the machines sold at the Used Centers are Volvo-owned machines that were previously under lease.
“With the addition of Hoffman Equipment, we’re able to expand the Volvo Used Center network to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic so that customers in these regions have easy access to our used inventory, and have assurance that the equipment they are purchasing from Volvo is at a price that reflects its true condition,” said Ryan Sherwood, vice president, retail development at Volvo CE. “Hoffman Equipment is a relatively new Volvo dealer, but the company has a long and proven record of technical service capabilities that makes it an ideal match for this program.”
At these centers, off-lease Volvo equipment undergoes a rigorous 140-plus point inspection from certified dealer technicians and is refurbished to OEM standards using genuine parts. All factory updates are completed, and the machines are packaged with a 6 month/1200 hour Powertrain warranty to become Volvo Certified Used. The certified machines also come with a free one-year subscription to the ActiveCare Direct telematics service and they also qualify for Volvo’s lifetime frame warranty. Certified Used machines are eligible for financing through Volvo Financial Services.
“Our customers can be 100% certain that the final product coming out of our shop will be exactly as promised in the inspection report. The machines will have been tested, with software updates completed and components reconditioned using genuine OEM-approved,” said Tim Watters, president of Hoffman Equipment. “We have dedicated a tremendous amount of resources, including a super-talented team of technicians, to ensure that this equipment is delivered to the marketplace ready to work hard and reliably into a long and productive ‘second life.’”
The range of used equipment includes Volvo articulated haulers, excavators and wheel loaders. All Volvo Certified Used equipment can be viewed online, including the complete 140-plus point inspection reports, at volvousedce.com.
Volvo plans to open several more Certified Used Centers across North America in the future.
