Forklift Supplier in Reading


With a regional office near Reading, Locators are the South’s leading forklift supplier. With over 35 years of experience, we are official Toyota Materials Handling distributors who offer other services too. For example, we offer a free site survey. This is a great option if you want to grow or finesse your warehouses storage facilities.

Locally, we have worked with Reading-based independent builders, Peppard Building Supplies Ltd. We reviewed their materials handling equipment and proposed two new forklifts. These accommodated general yard duties alongside existing trucks at both of their sites. They were supplied through a contract hire agreement, which is a worthwhile venture if you’re unsure about an outright purchase. But don’t just take our word on it. This is what Peppard had to say:

“We wanted to take our time with the review of our fleet so we could be sure any new equipment would meet our current and future requirements. We decided to hire trucks short-term to support our existing fleet during our review. Locators was one of the companies we contacted for hire trucks and we received a very competitive offer from them.”


“We are very pleased with our new Toyota forklifts. They are very quiet in operation and this is very much appreciated by our neighbours. Our forklifts have to be reliable and problems have to be sorted quickly as they are essential for our business to operate. Locators has a team of 18 field service engineers and with 4 engineers based locally so we are assured that they can provide the level of service we require for all of our equipment.”
