Forklifts for Hire

Here at Universal Forklifts, we are a forklift hire company that also specialises in the sale of both new forklifts and used forklifts. Our forklifts for hire have been carefully maintained and selected for your safety and convenience. Below is a brief look at the different types of forklifts for hire that we currently have available. 

Gas Forklifts

Designed to be used both indoors and outdoors, gas forklifts are extremely efficient and reliable. Their engines are quiet and they are known to maximise on performance in order to allow a job to be completed faster, without affecting quality. Gas forklifts outperform all other types of forklift when it comes to acceleration, travel speeds and lift speeds. 

Electric Forklifts

Electric forklifts are the quietest types of forklifts and the most environmentally-friendly. They come with batteries that need to be charged ahead of time and, therefore, do not require any fuel storage. They are very stable forklifts and have been designed to lift heavy loads. Most electric forklifts have been created for working indoors. 

Diesel Forklifts

Diesel forklifts are the most efficient option for performing outdoor tasks. While these types of forklift are undoubtedly the noisiest, they are the cheapest to run from a fuel cost perspective and are also usually very powerful. Diesel forklifts are celebrated for their impressive acceleration, speed and driveline torque at low RPM. Many of these models also come with a much larger loading capacity, allowing you to transport more items at once.
