Buying a crane is always a major decision, whether it is a new one, a used one, or one that contains a variety of different parts. The main thing to bear in mind if buying a new or used crane is that it should always be from a reputable manufacturer or supplier. This is integral to the buying decision and should never be underestimated. A good supplier will make sure that all of the right guarantees and documentation is included. A good salesperson who sells on used cranes will also make sure that the cranes they supply have a full service history, and so they will come with all of the necessary paperwork to show that LOLER, PUWER etc. regulations have been adhered to in full. This will ensure that all cranes sold on by a supplier will be in good condition and that you can trust them to be as described.
