Toyota Forklift Hire

Hiring with Locators is safe, quick and easy

Toyota forklift hire for you and your business

From the South’s leading independent forklift supplier.

With Locators, forklift hire has never been easier. Whether you need a one-off solution or a replacement fleet during an emergency – we can help. Locators offer a wide range of trucks to suit every possible need of our customers. When it comes to outfitting your warehouse to sufficiently operate – it might feel overwhelming to find exactly what you need. Yet no option is more popular than our Toyota forklift hire. Toyota forklifts are synonymous with warehouses. They have become vital behind-the-scenes equipment in day-to-day trade and even become a household name.

Always on hand to help you. Our Toyota forklift hire comes with “Safe Power” – a free full maintenance and callout service.

We have worked in partnership with Toyota for over 35 years. As a matter of fact, Locators was one of the first-ever suppliers of articulated forklifts. We are proud to work with Toyota because they produce some of the most innovative and high-quality forklifts on the market. Whilst they are often what our customers settle on, our dedicated fleet engineers also offer free onsite surveys. We do this to determine which of our trucks would be best suited to your intended application.

Hiring is a cost-effective solution for businesses that have seen uncertainty since COVID-19, lockdown and the effects that came with it.

Toyota Forklift Hire

Does your business need responsive mobile engineering support? Prompt delivery timescales? The best standards of equipment? Then get in touch! Toyota forklift hire is a beneficial way to get a return on your investment and offers you a whole raft of customisation options too. What’s more, is they’re tax-deductible and tend to be hired out on a month-by-month basis – meaning no long term commitment. This gives you the freedom to effectively return the forklift to us and swap it out for a different model of Toyota. You could even try out a Combilift – anything to locate what works best for you and your business.

What our clients say

We are very pleased with the change from an engine to an electric fleet. The trucks have been well received by our operators as they are comfortable and quiet to drive and give excellent protection from the elements. We even have the option and flexibility to use spare batteries and a simple battery change system if we ever want to work back to back shifts in the future. Locators also design, supply and install all types of racking and storage systems. They reconfigured the CooperVision warehouse for narrow aisle operation which increases the storage density and pallet locations. Locators supplied Aisle-Master articulated forklifts to work in this area.

Coopervision, Hamble

We have worked with Locators for nearly 20 years. We are confident they can always make the best use of the space we have available and provide us with forklifts that are well suited for the long loads and other stock we have to move.

Colin Macgregor
Director, Y Goldberg

Every time we look at an application, Locators approach it like a blank canvas and always recommend the best equipment for our business. Locators have proved themselves as a very reliable and proactive service provider by keeping our trucks working and our fleet costs as low as possible.

Adam Conrad
Group Transport Manager for Covers

Being able to work with one supplier for storage and materials handling has been a benefit to us. Locators managed the complete installation and ensured the correct materials handling equipment was specified for their design. They also service and maintain all of the equipment they have supplied and offer a rack inspection service to make sure our warehouse remains a safe working environment. We are very happy with our new facility and we believe we have made the best use of the available space.

Marc Congdon
Engineering Manager, Costa

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.

Ed Smales
Director, NFFM

Locators installed the new racking system within a tight timeframe while our business was fully operational. They have provided us with a facility that has a similar storage capacity and reduced the size of our forklift fleet allowing us to lease one building instead of two. We are very happy with the outcome.

Paul Bickell
Nippon Express

Locators gave us the benefit of working with just one supplier for all of the storage and materials handling requirements of this project. By mixing 3 and 4 wheel trucks from the same model range, we have gained extra pallet locations and have the option to battery change between them and work multi-shift in the future. I was initially sceptical that electric trucks could replace LPG, but I am very pleased with the successful outcome of this project.

Mark Davis
Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse brewery

It is a great benefit to us that we have a single source supplier who understands the needs of our business. This saves us time, improves efficiency and ultimately reduces cost.
