Forklift Hire In Southampton

Why buy when we provide forklift hire in Southampton?

Make a difference in your workplace with Locators.

Having the right tools for the job can make all the difference – which is precisely why forklift hire in Southampton is thriving. After all, if you’ve ever tried to make do with something that wasn’t fit for purpose, you’ll know all too well just how quickly it tends to work against you. Yet, whilst the market has an abundance of material handling equipment on hand – it doesn’t come cheap. Buying a sliver of the equipment you need can be very expensive. Almost every field has recognised the importance of leasing equipment. However, renting machines varies from project to project and company to company. Despite the ongoing debate about what’s better – hiring or buying – it’s clear to see that cost is the deciding factor. Well, money, the opportunity to make MORE money and any impending risk factors.

At Locators, we offer the flexibility of long-term or short-term hire with over 2,500 forklift trucks immediately at your disposal.

What is forklift hire in Southampton and beyond like?

Forklift trucks are an essential tool for business owners all over the world.

Both major and modest-sized companies rely on them to operate safely and efficiently daily. Yet, every business strives for an increase in productivity. Whilst cutting costs wherever possible is a no-brainer, forklifts can be pretty expensive. For this reason, it may turn out to be more beneficial to look into forklift hire in Southampton. At Locators, we have a massive range of forklifts and machines available for hire. Perhaps you have high demand throughout the year that doesn’t necessitate spending on a new forklift. If so, hiring will save you money in the long run.

Alternatively, hiring is a flexible means of fulfilling the need for a forklift for a one-off job.

We have a range of industrial forklifts, from an electric counterbalance to a Combi straddle carrier. For all your needs within a warehouse, warehouse equipment also makes up our fleet – including the BT order picking and Toyota reach trucks. Need to clean your warehouse floors? We even have a range of cleaners available for hire. The list of machines goes on with telehandlers, access equipment and compact loaders. Ultimately, when looking at forklift hire in Southampton, there are plenty of elements to consider. Costs are the chief concern amongst our clients, especially if they are interested in using a forklift long term. Our only suggestion is to evaluate whether this is constructive for you and your business. The costs of continuous hire might become so much that it would be more cost-efficient to buy a new or refurbished forklift instead.
