Renting a forklift truck can be an affordable and efficient option for a wide range of businesses. The cost of renting a forklift truck will depend on the make, type and model of the vehicle, as well as how long you want to rent it for. If you are wondering how much does it cost to rent a forklift, we take a look at the different rental options available and what is the most cost-effective for your business.
Cost-effective forklift hire
Hiring a forklift truck can be an affordable and practical way to increase your businesses capacity without committing to a long term contract or investing in expensive new equipment. Local forklift hire is often the best choice for a wide range of applications and there are a variety of rental agreements available so you can choose the most affordable and cost-effective option. Usually, hiring a machine long term can be more cost-effective and it is a good idea to discuss the options available to you with your local forklift experts at West Mercia Forklift Truck hire.
Forklift rental pricing
How much you pay for your forklift hire will depend on the type of forklift truck you require, how long you need it for and there are a wide range of options to choose from, including:
- Diesel forklifts
- Electric forklifts
- Petrol forklifts
- Warehouse stackers
- Combilifts and more
Each forklift hire option is available for short-term hire from as little as a few hours to long-term forklift truck hire and monthly hire options.
The benefits of forklift truck hire
Purchasing a brand new forklift truck can be a huge expense for businesses, and often hiring can be a better option. Hiring a forklift truck can also allow your business to increase capacity during peak periods, without having to store it or pay for it during quieter times. There are many benefits of renting a forklift truck, including:
- No maintenance costs
- High-end machinery
- No storage costs
- Flexible rental options
- No hidden costs
- Newer models
- Customer support
- No depreciation
- No insurance
Long term forklift truck hire
If you have a project coming up and need a forklift truck you may be wondering whether hiring or purchasing is the best option for you. If you are looking for a long-term option, we have a range of forklift trucks for sale too.
However, for smaller projects, seasonal work and events, a forklift dealer can offer you a range of rental options which has many financial benefits. For long-term forklift truck hire, many forklift dealers offer a repair and maintenance option to keep your machinery in the very best condition throughout your project and if there are any issues we offer prompt repair services and rapid response times.
Short term forklift hire
If you have a short-term project which requires a forklift truck, hiring is the best option for saving money. Purchasing a brand new forklift truck can cost thousands, and for a smaller project that often isn’t feasible. If you have a large upcoming order or you are struggling with bottlenecks or delays, hiring an extra forklift truck is an affordable short term measure. Short-term forklift truck hire can also allow your business to scale up during peak seasons without major investment in new equipment.
Quick and affordable forklift hire
Project delays can be both costly and frustrating, so if your regular forklift truck has broken down or isn’t available to use, we can provide a quick and cost-effective hire option to get your project back on track. If you have a more complex project coming up and need the latest equipment or specialist warehouse machinery, we have a range of affordable forklift rental pricing options so you can access our top of the line equipment. Whether you need an extra forklift for a busy period at your warehouse or you want to test out a range of forklift truck options before you decide which one is best for you, we offer affordable and hassle-free hire options that are tailored to your requirements.
