Learning how to operate a forklift truck is an excellent way to get a new job, land a promotion or become more competent in your current duties. However, forklift trucks are heavy machines that require a decent understanding of health and safety requirements to operate them correctly.

When you are searching for quotes on forklift lease prices it is understandable that the price is the only thing you keep in mind. However, you should also want to know that the forklift you hire is up to the task you have in mind for it. A slightly higher price often reflects higher quality, which is certainly important.

When you are searching out forklift hire prices UK businesses, including yours, will appreciate, make sure you have a checklist of requirements beyond your budget.

Let’s take a look at some of the key questions, including what the heaviest load a forklift can manage.

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.
