Hire A Forklift In Southampton

All of your equipment and forklift needs in one place.

Looking to hire a forklift in Southampton? We have a range you can choose from so your jobs can be completed with the correct equipment. When you are looking to hire a forklift it is always good to make sure you are getting the right equipment for the job and if you aren’t sure about what you will need then our team can help you choose the right option. Another thing that you will need to have in mind when hiring is the fuel that the forklift will use and if you have access to that type of fuel to keep filling it up. If you already have forklifts and equipment alike, it is best to have a forklift with the same fuel types as them to avoid confusion and misfuelling.

The fuel types you may have to be careful if you are going to be working indoors or in tight spaces with the forklift. Although electric forklifts are fine, the ones that use LPG and Diesel can be a danger to people without proper ventilation as the fuels emit dangerous gases, inside and in tight spaces, this can then be inhaled by workers and cause significant damage. So the best way to go with this is by getting an electric forklift if you are going to be working indoors and your warehouse or unit doesn’t have good ventilation to flush all of the dangerous fumes away. If you will be working outside or you have good ventilation in your building then any fuel type is suitable.
