Hiring A Forklift

Reliable forklifts and competitive rates when you are hiring a forklift with Locators

Are you looking at hiring a forklift? At Locators, we have a fleet of over 2500 machines that we maintain with our teams of factory-trained mobile engineers. We can deliver parts to you overnight and an investment in training and parts stock mean we really deliver when it comes to supporting our customers. We supply and stock all types of materials handling and access equipment. Please enquire today to discuss your requirements.

We operate with a young hire fleet that is in great cosmetic condition but our hire rates still remain competitive. We also offer fixed-cost transport. You benefit from reliable, safe equipment while keeping within your budget. Hiring a forklift can benefit a business more than owning one. This is because if you only need a forklift for a short time period then you can save money on just hiring one for a short period rather than buying one. These can also be of great help if you already have a forklift and you need a hired one for a short period while your one is being serviced or repaired you can hire one of ours to get your work done.

We know that every business can’t afford to purchase a brand new forklift and that is why we offer this very good service so you can get a forklift for when you need to use one for handling materials. Some businesses might even be slumped by seasonal demands and need another forklift for a short period of time and this is also where we come in to help you.
