Here’s some of the key reasons our clients decide to rent forklifts:

Here are four reasons why someone might choose to rent a forklift instead of buying one:

Cost-Effectiveness: Renting a forklift can be more cost-effective, especially for short-term or intermittent needs, as it eliminates the upfront costs of purchasing a forklift.

Flexibility: Renting provides flexibility to match the forklift to the specific needs of each project or season, allowing businesses to easily scale their equipment based on demand.

Maintenance and Repairs: Rental agreements often include maintenance and repairs, relieving the renter from the responsibility of upkeep and unexpected repair costs.

Try Before You Buy: Renting allows businesses to see what forklift they like best before the commitment of purchasing, ensuring optimal efficiency and safety in operations.

Warehouse Forklifts for Rent:  A warehouse forklift, also known as an indoor forklift, is designed specifically for use inside warehouses and other indoor spaces. These forklifts are typically electric-powered, which makes them ideal for indoor use due to their zero emissions and quieter operation. Warehouse forklifts are often smaller and more maneuverable than outdoor forklifts, allowing them to navigate through narrow aisles and tight spaces common in warehouses.

Stand-up Electric Reach / Order Pickers for Rent:  These are a type of forklift specifically designed for use in warehouses and distribution centers. Unlike traditional sit-down forklifts, stand-up reach trucks are operated by standing on a platform located between the back wheels of the truck. This design allows the operator to easily move the forklift forward and backward while also having a clear view of the load and the surrounding environment.

These forklifts are called “reach trucks” because they are equipped with extending forks that can reach into racking to pick up or place loads at various heights. This feature makes them ideal for use in narrow aisle warehouses where space is limited. Order pickers are similar to reach trucks but are designed for picking orders from shelves rather than pallets from racking. The stand-up design of these forklifts also allows for quick and easy entry and exit, making them efficient for high-volume picking operations.

Outdoor Forklifts:  An outdoor forklift, also known as a rough terrain forklift, is designed for use in outdoor environments. These forklifts are usually powered by diesel or propane engines, providing the necessary power and durability to handle rough terrain, uneven surfaces, and outdoor conditions like rain, mud, and snow. Outdoor forklifts are larger and more rugged than warehouse forklifts, with higher ground clearance and larger tires for stability and traction outdoors.

Pallet Jacks:  A pallet jack, also known as a pallet truck, is a tool used to lift and move pallets within a warehouse or other storage facility. It is a simple, manually operated device that consists of a pair of forks that slide under a pallet, along with a hydraulic pump that raises the forks off the ground.

Pallet jacks are commonly used for tasks such as loading and unloading trucks, moving pallets to and from storage areas, and positioning pallets for storage or transport. They are ideal for use in areas where a forklift may be too large or impractical, such as small warehouses or retail spaces. Pallet jacks are available in various sizes and weight capacities to accommodate different pallet sizes and loads.
