Why A Forklift Truck Can Save You Time And Money

Purchasing a forklift truck isn’t cheap, but whether you hire one, buy used or buy new, you’ll be investing in something that can actually save you money and time in the long run.

Forklifts are an  investment that can help your business grow and make more money, so it’s essential that you choose the right machinery for the job. 

Forklifts enhance efficiency

Forklifts can be powered by petrol or diesel and some are electric, and they can lift and move materials short to medium distances. Crucially, they can move things that are too heavy or bulky for workers to move manually. A big warehouse without a forklift to shift products and pallets around would simply never work. 

They do what people can’t, or aren’t allowed to do for serious health and safety reasons. Because if you make workers do something that could potentially result in an injury or worse, you will open yourself up to fines and potential imprisonment.

They are safe and effective 

It doesn’t matter whether you’re working in a huge warehouse with really high shelves, or a hanger developing airplane engines, forklifts are safe, effective and simple to transport heavy, bulky and fragile items, without worry.

They are a great investment that will continue to pay dividends well after their first use. Your business will be able to save time on a daily basis, and you won’t need to employ hundreds of workers. 

It’s true that you have to spend a bit of money in order to get the right type of machinery that you need, but the layer of efficiency you’ll add to your business can be invaluable. The sooner materials are being loaded and being delivered to your customers the better, and good quality forklifts trucks can help you achieve this.

The money they save you in the long run will be impossible to truly calculate, along with the increased productivity and efficiency your business will get. But one thing is for certain, a forklift is truly a time and money saving product that can boost your business.

At H&F Lift Trucks, we’ve got all the new or used forklift models you could ask for.

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.

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.
