Benefits Of Hiring A Forklift Truck Instead Of Buying

Thinking of hiring your forklift instead of purchasing a machine? Here are just a few reasons why you should.

Can Work Out More Cost-Effective

Requiring a forklift truck for your business, or even a fleet of trucks, can be costly if you purchase the vehicles. However, by hiring your required number of forklift trucks you do not have to provide a large up-front capital investment like you would with a purchase option. Additionally, once your contract terms are worked out, you have a fixed monthly cost which you can budget for. You also won’t be stung with any sudden repair or maintenance bills, which brings us to our next point…

Servicing & Maintenance Is Included

Our comprehensive forklift servicing and maintenance is all included in the price. This means you receive regular maintenance to ensure your vehicles are running as well as can be and aren’t suffering from any problems. Servicing is done by expert engineers for complete peace of mind and work that is always done to the highest standard.

Complete Flexibility

Hiring a forklift truck gives you complete flexibility over the terms. You may need a forklift for one day, one month, one year or on a continual basis. I doesn’t matter with a hire contract because you can set your own terms. There’s no point purchasing an expensive machine if you only need it for a short period of time which makes hire the only sensible option to suit your needs.

Upgrade Options Available

As the needs of your business change, you need to be able to change the equipment and vehicles  you use to reflect that. Hire options enable you to upgrade your vehicle or switch it for something more suitable – something you wouldn’t easily be able to do if you had purchased your forklift truck.

Testimonials

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 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

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.
