Project Description

Forklift Transport

From the smallest pallet trucks to the largest diesel forklifts… low-clearance order pickers to high-masted narrow-aisle trucks…3-wheel reach trucks to 8-tonne sideloaders… on-site demonstrations for new customers to snatch-backs of non-runners… we deliver for you. Operated by a team of specialist forklift drivers, our fleet of 44-tonne low loaders comes with a wide range of covered or open trailers to suit your every need. We also run a 26-tonne beavertail vehicle, ideal for smaller loads or sites with restricted access.

Whether you need a quick turnaround on a dedicated move or prefer to take advantage of groupage pricing where you share the cost of a load… a spot-price per move or a vehicle on hire to work to your instructions… a bespoke ratecard so you know your transport costs before you quote or even a long-term contract vehicle in your own livery… whatever works best for you.

Covered trailers – to keep forklifts in pristine condition and electric trucks dry whatever the weather.
Open trailers – for gas or diesel forklifts and for large trucks too wide to fit inside a covered trailer.
Wheelbox trailers – for high-masted trucks, closed height of 4.6m (roof open) and 4.0m (roof closed).
Double-ramps – low-gradient for the safe loading and unloading of trucks with low ground clearance.
Heavy-duty winches – all our trailers are fitted with winches for safety and for loading non-runners.

All our drivers are trained and fully-qualified forklift operators with loading and unloading certificates.

  • Counterbalance Trucks
  • Reach Trucks
  • Flexi Trucks
  • Bendi Trucks
  • Order Pickers
  • Combilift Trucks
