If you prefer to purchase your equipment, but don’t currently have the budget to buy a forklift outright, at Fork Truck Direct we offer a range of flexible finance options to suit your business needs too.
We have a wide selection of forklift models for available for sale or hire to the Southend area. These include the following:
Doosan – We offer counterbalance trucks that both diesel and gas powered, as well as a full range of counterbalance and three and four wheeled electric trucks. These range from small 1.5 tonne machines to a the big 16 tonne diesel Doosan D160S-7 forklift. We also have a range of electric reach trucks for hire – the smallest being 1.3 tonnes capacity and the biggest being 3.5 tonnes.
Combilift – Our Combilift multi-directional hire trucks start from 2.5 tonnes and come with a range of functionalities which simply aren’t possible with a traditional counterbalance machine. Combining the technology of a side-loader with a forklift, they are highly efficient and maneuverable in even the tightest spaces, and manage to be both cost effective and incredibly safe for the operator.
Narrow Aisle – We have a number of articulated Narrow Aisle Flexi forktrucks on our hire fleet, covering a wide range of specifications to suit any needs. All Flexi Narrow Aisle forklift models are built on the most effective and efficient AC technology, boasting unparalleled manoeuvrability around even the tightest workspace or warehouse. Some models can operate in an aisle a mere one and a half metres wide.
BT – We also have a selection of BT reach trucks on our short term hire fleet that start from 1.5 tonnes with maximum lift heights of up to 9.5m.
