The right lift
for your business

Supplying forklifts since 1976

What we do

Since 1976 H&F 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 superior service to our customers from a stable & sustainable business platform.


For over thirty five years H&F Lift Trucks have provided local businesses with long and short term forklift hire.

Forklift hire can be a great solution if you only have an occasional or one off need for forklift trucks, as it avoids the capital outlay of buying new or used forklifts. If you are considering investing in a forklift fleet, it can also be a way of trying out different makes and types of forklift trucks before you buy. If you are unsure as to the best forklift truck for you, we can carry out a site survey to assess your requirements. Factors which can determine the most suitable forklift for you include the type of site (warehouse or open environment) and whether you want electric or fuel based vehicles.

At H&F we have a casual hire fleet numbering over 100 trucks covering a wide range of specifications. We can supply electric, LPG or diesel counterbalance machines with lift capacities of up to 7000kg, as well as reach trucks with a variety of mast configurations. All of our trucks are inspected and maintained to our own high standards. We have long standing partnerships with forklift suppliers in the UK including Doosan and Combi Lift.

Whether you require a truck for 1 day, a year or on an ongoing basis, casual hire give you total flexibility. As we provide our own forklift transport we can offer a very rapid response. Forklift servicing and maintenance are all included in the price.

This high quality, dependable service is what has given H&F its leading name in the market and is the reason so many customers come back to us again and again for their forklift requirements.

We provide forklift hire to Staffordshire, South Cheshire, Macclesfield, Congleton, Crewe, Nantwich, Sandbach, Stoke, Stone, Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Uttoxeter, Derby, Shrewsbury, Telford, Burton.

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.

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.
