With over 50 years' experience in the materials handling industry, Budget Fork Trucks is one of the leading providers of material handling solutions. We have over 450 trucks available for hire and lease, and can provide hires from one day up to five years for all your handling needs. Since March 2014 we have been a dealer for Doosan Industrial Vehicles Ltd providing the full range of Doosan forklift trucks.
Doosan has been making fork trucks for half a century, but the global materials handling firm has expanded rapidly in recent years with its ultra-modern fleet of vehicles. This includes new and innovative electric forklifts.
Pallet trucks are some of the most versatile pieces of equipment used by material handling firms. You’ll typically find them in almost every warehouse based here in the UK. Pallet trucks are warehouse workhorses and are able to shift all kinds of cargo between loading bays and packaging departments, as well as in and out of storage. This makes them an indispensable item for any material handling enterprise. While a diverse selection of these dedicated lifting solutions is available for you to choose from, they commonly fall between two categories: hand pallet trucks and power pallet trucks. Both types of pallet trucks have their own advantages and are suited for different work environments.
If you operate a single forklift or a fleet of forklifts, then reliability and safety are going to be key priorities for you. Ensure both of these is helped by incorporating fork lift truck daily checks into your regular routine. But what forklift safety checks should you be doing, and why are they necessary?
Technology evolves at a breakneck pace. Just about every industry you can think of is changing due to advances in technology. As automation technologies become more affordable and more commonplace, and the internet-of-things becomes a reality, the way that most businesses operate is continuing to change. There is enormous pressure on companies across industries to change the way they do business in response to the emergence of new technologies.

Warehouses are no exception to the above trends. Everything from stock tracking to the standard forklift is changing in response to the introduction of automation technologies.
