Buying used forklifts can be a great investment to a company, but people often overlook the benefits of forklift hire.

Forklift hire can be either short term or long term. Maybe you only need it for a few weeks to achieve a certain job or maybe for a long-term project you may need it for a longer period. This would make hiring a forklift a much more sensible and cost-effective option.

Below are the benefits to look at when thinking of buying or hiring your forklift.

  • Hiring can be more cost effective, especially if it will be only be used for a temporary project. The cost of buying a new or used forklift can be a big one, so hiring can help with this.
  • Maintenance and repairs can potentially be a costly item later on if buying a forklift. When hiring a lift truck, service and maintenance is often included so you don’t need to pay out for the things that go wrong that aren’t your fault.
  • Do you have a busy season in your business? Your current forklift fleet may not be able to handle the demand in these periods so why not bring in a couple more to help ease the workload.
