Since 1976 H&F Lift Trucks have provided local business with high quality materials handling solutions. For nearly four decades we have achieved steady growth year on year, enabling us to provide a superior service to our customers from a stable & sustainable business platform. It is our vision to are still providing the same uncompromising levels of service for decades to come.

H&F are main dealers for Doosan forklifts & warehouse equipment. Apart from new forklift truck sales, H&F also deal in all makes of used equipment. Our expertise means we can survey a site & specify the correct equipment for our customers needs. When the right truck has been identified we can also offer a variety of finance packages to suit all requirements.

A large part of our business is forklift hire. Our casual hire fleet numbers are well in excess of 100 trucks & we have specifications to suit most requirements – including trucks up to 7000kg capacity. Trucks can be rented out on a flexible basis ranging from a couple of days to long term agreements.

Servicing & maintaining all our own trucks aswell as our customers is a major task & one which H&F is well geared up to. We have a team of mobile service engineers with fully equipped vans who are never too far away from you. If a machine needs workshop attention then we run our own forklift transport that can bring it in to our depot.

Our parts department carries an enormous range of forklift spare parts, & we can source parts for virtually any make and model.

Testimonials

H&F Lift Trucks are a pleasure to deal with. All staff, Technicians, Sales and Directors have hands-on experience of all ranges of vehicles they supply. From initial assessments and listening to all users of a potential new vehicle requirement, they keep us informed of all aspects of specification and lead times through to delivery. Their maintenance service is superb – they organise suitable times around our busy working day with our Yard Managers. Any accidental damage or operator error faults are always discussed with me and dealt with fairly – not like some unscrupulous suppliers who seek to profit at every service visit! In a cut-throat market, where we are offered “good deals” a few quid cheaper every day, we are never tempted to stray.

James Hipkins, Managing Director
Emerys

Pym and Wildsmith have been working closely with H&F Fork Trucks for many years. Their service is excellent, ranging from prompt callouts to breakdowns through to the supply of new trucks. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Ian Pym, Operations Manager
Pym & Wildsmith

H&F have supplied us with all our fork lift equipment for in excess of ten years now, and have maintained it in accordance with our stringent operation requirements. During this time they have provided a consistently high level of service (including short term hire when required) whilst never failing to support us in a totally honest and professional manner.
