Give Someone an Uplifting Gift This Christmas

As we belt through December many of you will be wondering what Christmas gifts to buy your friends and loved ones. You might get them a lovely tie. Perhaps it’ll be a pair of socks. Or maybe you’ll go all out and buy a sock themed tie? Ooh, ritzy.

Well for those of you who know someone who works with forklifts, has a weird obsession with forklifts, or has a lot of tiny stuff that needs moving, we’ve got the solution for you. Why not buy them a forklift truck….toy. There are plenty of different forklift themed toys out there for both kids and big kids alike, so here are a few of our favourites.


The Scale Model

Brude 02511 Linde H30D ForkliftThis is a 1:16 scale model of a Brude 02511 Linde H30D Forklift truck, and it comes with tow-coupling ability and two toy pallets. If you want to start them young then this sturdy fella is the way to go, as it is suitable for children aged three and above. The Brude can be played with both indoors and outdoors, but it is also beautifully constructed enough to stand as a display model. So if you’re one of ‘those’ who keeps toys inside their original packaging and never plays with them, this might be the one for you.



The Remote Control

Hugine 6 channel remote control forklift truckThe Hugine 6 channel remote control forklift truck is the perfect gift for older children, or adults who like to play with their kids’ toys on Christmas day. With a fully operational fork you and your kids can spend hours doing all the things you’re not allowed to do in an actual warehouse. Crash it into a pile of boxes. Test loading capacity to a dangerous level. Transport digestives from the kitchen to your hand. You could even give the hamster a little ride around your home if you’re feeling devious. The possibilities are endless…well they’re not, but you can still have a lot of fun.



The Ridealong

Simba-Smoby Forklift TruckIf you’re willing to spend a little more on your bundles of joy then you simply have to go for the pedal-powered Simba-Smoby Forklift Truck. This easy to assemble ridealong truck lets your kids lift and move pallets with hand operated forklift controls, and you can even buy a hard-hat and high-vis jacket to go with it. I can’t think of a better way to introduce children to the joys of a forklift career than by forcing your toddler to drive this up and down outside in the pouring rain, while you act as supervisor and shout at them for not stacking their pallets safely.



Ah Christmas, what a joyous time of year.

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.

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.
