Forklift Hire and Sales in Hampshire, Southampton and Basingstoke

We’re proud to be one of the south of England’s leading providers of materials handling solutions, and if you’re looking for forklift hire in Southampton, and surrounding areas in Hampshire, we’re here to help and offer our expert advice. 

First things first, if you’re looking to hire a forklift our prices start at a very reasonable £65 per week. You can, of course, purchase our trucks too, but if you want to try before you buy, that’s not a problem at all. 

Not only do we cover various products, we also cover various areas within Hampshire, including Southampton and Basingstoke. Our range includes trucks suitable for small-scale projects, perhaps even personal jobs, such as a new house build or landscaping, to the much larger - for rocky, rough building site terrains, and warehouse work. 

Electric counter range

Our electric counter range is perfect for lifting up to 6000kg, and can lift up to 7 metres in height. This is great for smaller-scale jobs, including warehouse work, small manual labour jobs, and work where you’re dealing with smooth grounds (these aren’t built for any rocky terrain!). We would never recommend using a truck from this range on extremely uneven ground. 

We cover a range of diesel-gas counter balance vehicles, which lift up to a huge 10,000kg and up to 6 metres high. Using diesel is more energy-efficient too, which also means it's more cost-effective for not just you, but your business as well. 

The warehouse range

Our warehouse range is for the slightly smaller tasks and jobs. Again, ideal for the smoother terrain, these include slightly smaller weights: 1000-2200kg. Hire for these types of trucks range from 1 day (yes, just one day!), to an entire 5 years, depending on the size of the project. So, this gives you the power to decide how it works for you. Our warehouse range is super reliable and easy to manoeuvre, especially in small and tight spaces, perfect for any tricky areas which you've struggled with in the past.

Our access and telehandler ranges

We also offer an access range, which is ideal for those looking to reach taller heights. These come in from £65 per week to hire the forklift, or you can choose to purchase from £6,000 upwards. 

Our telehandler range is for the much larger, rougher jobs which require more time and effort. Think building sites, larger surface areas, etc. If you’re investing in a personal project, such as building your own property, or building a business, the telehandler range is just what you need. With large, tough tyres and a weight lift of up to 4500kg, these are perfect for the more rural terrains in the Hampshire area. 

Built to suit your needs, both business and personal, there are many types of vehicles you can choose from when seeking out forklift sales in Hampshire, especially forklift sales in Southampton. 

Forklift hire in Southampton

The average rental starts at around £65 per week, or you can choose to buy forklifts instead, which start at around £4000. This is extremely good value, but we sure don’t skimp on quality in the meantime. 

Of course, all these prices are just estimates, so to get a more accurate idea to suit your requirements, give us a call or send us an email to get a detailed price. 

All trucks are suitable for a variety of personal and business needs, whether that be a large warehouse job, moving different loads, building a property, or landscaping projects. All are easy to manoeuvre and lift a variety of different loads. You have the control, so you can decide on the perfect vehicle to suit. 

Above all else, safety is one of the most important elements and we take it very seriously. Rules applied by various businesses means forklifts can sometimes be more of a necessity as opposed to a choice. Lifting heavy loads and moving large packing materials, such as boxes, are extremely risky if lifting manually, so a lot of the time it’s easier to hire forklift equipment to help with these jobs.

Of course, it goes without saying that every vehicle hired or purchased through Budget Forktrucks LTD goes through rigorous health and safety tests before it reaches the end point, before you hire or buy. We ensure any vehicle leaving our site is in its best form, and ready for use as soon as it arrives.
