Forklift Hire

Forklift hire is a fast and flexible way to have a forklift at your disposal without the obligation to purchase or commit to a long-term contract. When it comes to hiring a forklift, we work with our sister company GFT Sales to offer a comprehensive service at competitive prices with each option tailored to fit your requirements, whether it’s for one week, a year, or everything in between.

We understand that each business requires forklift hire for a variety of reasons, so we make sure we have a wide range of trucks available to give our customers the flexibility they need and we have new forklifts available.

  • An unexpected upturn in business
  • Reorganising stock
