About Budget Forktrucks

About Budget Forktrucks Ltd

The embryo of Budget was born in 1981. Two friends John Attwood and Emlyn Evans, both with many years experience in the Forklift industry, decided there was a place in the market for a Company to offer a first class service, with the cornerstone being honesty and integrity.

A small team of experienced engineers was recruited and the Company launched in 1982. Finance was tight, so low-cost premises were acquired and then adopted to meet our specialist needs. The formulae proved successful and the Company has grown over the last 42 years from rented units at Beenham then Tadley. During this growth we became one of the leading independent mechanical handling suppliers in the south-east of England and in 2004 we purchased our own premises at Brimpton Common, Reading to further strengthen the Company.

Throughout this expansion we have always maintained our independence to offer our customers the right product for the right application. We operate a cradle to grave approach, not just supplying the machine, but ensuring best of service throughout its life.

The two main objectives of honesty and integrity are paramount and to this is added our commitment to supply the best truck for our customers from a wide range of manufacturers.

With over 450 hire trucks available and our own specialised transporters we can cater for 99% of hire or sale requirements promptly and efficiently. This is backed up by 7 dedicated service vehicles equipped with state of the art tracking devices to offer help and support.

Whilst offering this professional service Budget retains the personal approach and to this day remains a family-owned business. Whilst Emlyn has since retired from the business, Emlyn’s son Andy now heads up the operation with his sons Daniel and Alex (like Prince Charles) in the wings.
