Forklift Supplier in the New Forest


Need a forklift supplier in the New Forest? Why not let Locators lift your load? We’re the leading forklift supplier in Hampshire and the south. If you live in the area, you may have heard of New Forest Farm Machinery Ltd. We recently assisted the agricultural machinery and grounds care retailer with their Blashford depot. Specifically with a new Toyota Traigo 8FBMT25 80 Velectric forklift.


“We purchased our first Toyota forklift from Locators 14 years ago for our farm. This truck has been very reliable and is still in service so we had no hesitation in deciding to purchase another Toyota machine. Locators recommended an electric forklift for our machinery depot as it is very quiet, has low running costs and does not create any pollution, making it ideal for working both inside and outside. Our operators are very pleased with our new Toyota truck and our business is very happy to be operating a forklift that has such a low impact on the environment.”

Director, New Forest Farm Machinery Ltd.

Who are we?


Founded in 1985 by Brian Cowles, Locators are a supplier and service support company. We first secured an exclusive deal with Toyota Materials Handling Equipment. Our first major order came about with Bacardi Martini in Southampton, Hampshire. This solidified our partnership with Toyota and lead to a historic event. We became one of the first ever suppliers of articulated forklift trucks! Despite spreading across the country, we operate nearby from Ferndown and Reading.
