Benefits to Consider When Purchasing An Electric Forklift

If you’re considering purchasing an electric forklift truck, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the many benefits this modern piece of machinery can offer. And we wanted to explore some of the key advantages in this blog…

Highly durable

When compared to other types of lift truck, electric forklifts have a much longer lifespan. Thanks to the battery and charger, the initial cost of these forklifts may be higher, but over time they become more cost-effective than other models. Electric powered forklifts can go the distance, and they won’t need replacing as quickly.

Save on fuel

Of course another key benefit of this type of forklift is that they won’t require any fuel to operate. Not only will you be able to save on costs throughout the lifespan of these forklifts, you’ll also be helping the environment as well. They produce no emissions and are extremely eco-friendly machines. 

Save on maintenance

Not only will you cut costs on fuel, with electric forklifts you’ll also reduce your maintenance costs too. These forklifts don’t require the same amount of upkeep and repair that other standard lift trucks require. Parts that often need the most maintenance, such as catalytic converters, belts or spark plugs won’t be found with electric models. 

Very versatile

These electric lift trucks come in all shapes and sizes, and their versatility more than makes up for the fact that they’re not quite as powerful as their engine-powered counterparts. You’ll be able to choose from three or four wheeled counterbalanced trucks, to sit-on or reach-on trucks. There’s many types available, plus they are generally more narrow than other types of lift truck, which adds to their manoeuvrability and convenience.

At H&F Lift Trucks, we’ve got a range of electric forklifts for sale or hire, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.

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.

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.

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.
