Forklift Hire In Wiltshire

Forklift Hire In Wiltshire

Why should you enquire about forklift hire in Wiltshire?

Our forklifts are available at short notice with cost-competitive hire rates.

Forklift hire in Wiltshire is becoming increasingly popular as it offers a surplus of benefits. It’s low risk, cost-effective, and provides increased safety, minimal maintenance and easy retrieval. Yet why has this become so popular? Businesses have become aware of the abruptness of seasonal demands and bulk orders. Those businesses that remain none the wiser will soon require another truck to deal with increased workloads. At Locators, we believe in providing a tailor-made service for our customers. We do this because most businesses struggle to justify purchasing a new machine, especially when covering increased, short-term demand.

In such situations, buying a forklift isn’t the best option. Therefore, we’ve introduced forklift hire in Wiltshire.

Our hire services allow our customers to ‘borrow’ a forklift and use it for as long as they need it. Better still, our range of over 2,500 machines is available at short notice. There is a range of reasons why forklift hire in Wiltshire is superseding purchases lately. For one, it’s proving beneficial for businesses that have encountered one or more of their machines breaking down. If their machines are out of action or are undergoing servicing, they may as well not exist as that business no longer has access or derives use from them. Yet, in planning for situations like this, companies can react and hire a forklift with us. This way, at the very least, they’re covered up until their machine is back up and running.

Here’s how forklift hire in Wiltshire can help you

It’s essential you fuel the success of your business correctly.

Most of us probably have a general idea of what a forklift is. However, forklifts embody many classifications, power sources, sizes, uses and new technologies. Some lift heavy materials on sites, whereas others drive THEMSELVES in state-of-the-art warehouses. Whether indoors or out, forklifts are necessary for most warehouses and an integral part of our industries. Forklift hire in Wiltshire might seem more industrial than inventive but consider this:

Forklifts might be the size of a small car, but they can lift thousands of pounds loads, often several stories into the air – without tipping over. These machines work long hours each day, lifting and moving heavy loads. We rely on them to keep our manufacturing, automotive, aerospace and other industries humming along nicely.

Sound Familiar?

Is your current fleet capacity struggling to keep up with the demands of unexpected peaks in your handling requirements?

If it’s currently stretched thin, how do you think your business will fare against seasonal demands or unexpected breakdowns?

Here at Locators, we’re here to help. Our team offer long and short-term packages for forklift hire in Wiltshire.

For nearly a century, forklifts have made our jobs more efficient – just as much now as when they were invented.

Yet, when choosing a forklift hire in Wiltshire, you will need to consider the fuel used and what you can access. We provide LPG, Diesel and electric fuel types. If you work outside, the fuel type you choose won’t matter much in regards to what you can achieve with your machine. However, choosing the right fuel type is paramount if using a forklift inside. If using LPG or Diesel inside, you will need a ventilation system installed to flush out any toxic gases from your factory or warehouse.

Conversely, you don’t get this problem with electric forklifts. Plus, electric trucks are much cheaper to charge than refuelling the LPG and Diesel machines. With that said, without these machines, we wouldn’t be able to build, ship or move manufacturing goods efficiently. Essentially, your choice of fuel can significantly affect the operational costs and efficiency of your business. Therefore, it’s essential to get it right. At Locators, we can help you make the correct decision. For 35 years, we have been specialists in industrial forklifts and storage solutions. Now, we’re offering forklift hire in Wiltshire to our clients too.

Consider this if you're Interested in forklift hire in Wiltshire

Here are the basic elements of a forklift and how they work together.

Our experienced team operates a young hire fleet in great cosmetic condition with competitive hire rates. Plus, we maintain over 2,500 machines with highly-trained teams of mobile engineers. We don’t just supply the most common models of forklifts and equipment. We provide the entire range to cover any gaps in your material handling needs. Most of us have a good idea of what a forklift looks like, but there are actually SEVEN classifications of forklifts, AKA industrial trucks. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has classified the following types:

  1. Electric motor rider trucks
  2. Electric motor narrow rider trucks
  3. Electric motor hand trucks or hand rider trucks
  4. Internal combustion engine trucks with solid cushioned tyres
  5. Internal combustion engine trucks with pneumatic tyres
  6. Electric and internal combustion engine tractors
  7. Rough terrain forklift trucks

These classifications give us some general distinctions between forklifts. For example, some have different types of tyres, power sources and terrain utilisation. Some forklifts can be adapted with pneumatic tyres – a durable rubber that can go outdoors. These tyres are similar to your car’s tyres or solid tyres, which are cushion tyres. Made of solid rubber tyres, these are typically used indoors on hard and flat surfaces. Aside from tyres, some essential elements that make up most forklifts, including:

  1. The frame – the foundation of all the forklift parts
  2. Counterweight – used to stabilise the forklift when lifting heavy loads
  3. Power source – usually LPG, gasoline, diesel engine or batteries
  4. The mast – a hydraulically operated lift used to raise and lower a load
  5. The forks – prongs that lift a loaded pallet
  6. Load backrest – keeps the load from shifting backwards
  7. Overhead guard – protects the operator from a falling load
