We are currently looking for a new forklift service engineer to join our ranks, we are seeking someone who will be able to fit into our team and be dedicated to producing great work with us. The person has to be experienced with machinery and who knows their way around a forklift. However if you have experience with; plant, commercial vehicles, HGVs, agricultural machinery or cars then you could also be a suitable candidate.

When you work with us you are provided with a lot of benefits that many other companies don’t provide. We give you a fuel card, a service van and a company phone to make sure that you’re able to fulfil the jobs we send you on. We also provide you with an annual tool allowance which means that you will be able to get the right equipment you need and will never be left out in the cold.

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.

Ashley Basset, Director
R G Bassett & Sons Ltd

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

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.
