It really comes down to industry experience, great customer service, top quality machines and great prices.
Established in 1995, Fork Truck Direct has many, many years of experience in forklift sales, hire, servicing and parts supplies. We’re also an independent company, which means you get access to the best machines across the board and we can provide you with impartial, expert advice on which trucks to choose. We focus on giving our customers the best support and on making quality premium forklifts and material handling equipment available at sensible prices.
As the number one choice for material handling requirements for so many companies in Essex and Suffolk, we’ve recently decided that it’s time to increase our geographical reach and include Hertfordshire region (we already have engineers based in the area). So, if you are looking to buy a new truck in St Albans, Hatfield, Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, or anywhere in Hertfordshire, with a large selection of equipment to choose from, we’re certain that we can offer the right truck and also provide the quality service support to match.
We are proud to have won many awards from Doosan’s for being a leading independent distributor of their forklift trucks. This has seen us sell well over 1200 new Doosan machines since becoming a dealer for them!
We also stock machines from other top brands such as EP, Combilift and Flexi. With plenty of different trucks available to tackle any material handling tasks, we are sure you will find just the thing you are after. If you do not want to splash out on a brand-new truck, we also offer a very popular refurbishment solution and have a large pool of second hand trucks to choose from.
Whether you need a classic counterbalance truck for moving goods easily, or taller warehouse trucks for jobs at height, Fork Truck Direct can help. We have over 300 machines in our short term fleet suitable for forklift hire Hertfordshire wide and each is maintained to the highest standards.
Fork Truck Direct also has one of the most knowledgeable Service Teams in the business. The backbone of our success is our staff – Our Service Management Team collectively offer in excess of 100 years’ experience in the forklift service business, and their experience and technical know-how ensures that FTD will continue to lead the way for years to come. We place the upmost importance in the levels of service we give to our customers on a daily basis – responding to all service calls within an average of less than 3 hours. As a result, this part of our business has grown by more than 300% in recent years and we’ve got plenty of capacity to take on more service customers in Hertfordshire.
Our ability to deliver parts for broken machines is also second to none. We liaise with all the biggest brands to source spare parts and deliver 95% of them to clients within 24 hours. This means less downtime and less waiting around to use the truck again.
