Are you operating a forklift that is under capacity for your application?  Maybe you have a 3 tonne diesel and you need a 5 tonne diesel or even down sizing to a 2.5 tonne diesel counterbalance. 

New Forklifts Sunderland

We can supply you with a new forklift if that is what you need?  Do you know that often people buy a new forklift and they really do not need too?  Quite often their old one may just need a little money spending on it.  New forklifts can be expensive and you should get expert advice.  Often new forklifts can start around £14k for a counterbalance diesel or LPG.  If you do decide to go for a new forklift then you should certainly ask the companies you are talking too for and on-site demonstration.  This will allow your forklift operators to try the new forklift before you commit to buying it.  After all, if you buy a new forklift and your operators dop not like it they will not look after it.

Forklift Hire Sunderland

Alternatively, you may decide to hire a forklift and we have supplied a lot of companies in Sunderland with forklift hire.  Hiring a forklift allows for a number of advantages.  Monthly, fixed hire charges, if it breaks down then it is the forklift suppliers cost to fix it.  Forklift hire is easy and can save you expensive repair nightmares.  But like everything there is a downside to forklift hire and that is you only have economic use of the machine and will never own it.  Is your company credit worthy?  If it is not then you might not qualify for forklift hire because of your credit rating.

So, if you are not going to hire a new forklift or buy one then perhaps a good used forklift will be more for you.  Used forklifts are a popular choice for a lot of companies in Sunderland.  Costs of used forklifts are a lot lower than a new forklift and you can save a lot of money.  But like all used equipment you have to be careful.  Choosing a good quality used forklift truck is an art form and you need to cover all bases.  If you are buying a used electric forklift, what is the battery condition?  I would suggest a new battery for a used electric forklift because it is the heart of the machine.  It is the fuel source for the machine and needs to be top of your used forklift buying criteria.  Look at the number of hours on the forklift as like with a car the higher the number of hours the clock has the harder the life it has had.  Used forklifts can have mast problems, especially around the tilt cylinders.  Used fork lift hire can be a good way to keep your costs down, especially if you are not working a lot of hours.  Up to 20 hours per week and a good used forklift will be a good option for you.  Buying a used forklift outright will not be a huge strain on your capital expenditure budget but again get a demonstration before you commit.

Our sales and service centres in Gateshead, Newcastle & Durham are in ideal locations to supply Sunderland.  We already have a high number of customers in Sunderland who buy and hire forklifts from us.  We also have a number of forklift service engineers who live in Sunderland or in the local area.  This means that if you forklift breaks down, we can have an engineer with you very quickly.
