Forklift Hire Professionals

Consider converting from the traditional model of owning a Forklift or Sweeper/Scrubbers to a leasing or hiring model.

Many of Australia’s leading companies are converting from traditional ownership to fully sustained leasing of vehicles and plant, as well as materials handling equipment. Forklift hire is 100% tax deductible because it is an operating cost, and because maintenance and repairs are incorporated, budgeting is simplified. To cater for your individual requirements, Fork Truck Specialists has a range of forklifts available for short and long term hire at competitive rates.

We have over 100 hire forklifts that includes model sizes from 1.5t electric through to 10t diesel.  We have 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive all terrain units that are a popular choice for off road requirements. As well as forklifts, we have hi-reach materials handling back of store units and industrial sweepers and scrubbers available statewide. As well as forklifts, we offer telehandlers of varying sizes to suit all requirements.

The time frame required for a hire unit is as flexible as you need it to be! From 1 day, or indefinitely, we can tailor a price and size, for the forklift you need for your business. And if things change, as they do, and you need to change the model of forklift, we are happy to work with you to swap machines for your new requirements.

Before delivering directly to the client, all hire units are checked and serviced as per the recommendations made by the manufacturers.  They come, ready to go fully serviced, and clean and tidy. Unlike other businesses, servicing of all hire forks is included in the weekly hire rate, so no nasty surprises according to the hours used per week nor service costs on top of weekly hire rates.   Pickup on de-hiring is also our responsibility along with ensuring that the hirer was satisfied with our service.

We can supply you with HIRE equipment in the areas listed below:

  • Electric Reach Trucks and Stackers
  • A range of Counter Balanced Forklifts e.g. LPG/Petrol, Diesel and Electric
  • All-Terrain Forklifts
  • Sweepers and Scrubbers (Commercial)
