Forklift Rental In Lancashire & North West England
A long-established and independent family business, Premier offers customers the benefit of more than four decades of experience and the renowned quality of forklift trucks imported from mainland Europe. Widely respected and competitively priced, the Goodsense brand of forklifts is on display in the showroom and available for rental. Choices include gas forklifts, as well as diesel and electric types to suit customer needs. In addition, Premier offers a selection of powerful mechanical handling machinery, designed with safety in mind.
Forklift hire periods may be as short as a single day, while customised deals are available on long-term rentals of up to five years. All-inclusive new and refurbished forklift rental deals provide the certainty and simplicity of fixed cost arrangements, without unpleasant surprises or unexpected repair expenses.
Other Advantages of Hiring Forklifts
For growing businesses, hiring a forklift can often be advantageous in comparison to purchasing outright. In today’s competitive environment, renting represents an efficient solution with fixed monthly outgoings, without any need to tie up valuable working capital in equipment that then depreciates considerably during its working life.
Instead, Premier’s straightforward rental agreements align the costs to the service life of the asset, so that businesses can take advantage of capital and tax allowances. Please note that it is advisable to seek advice from a qualified accountant to optimise financial arrangements, make the most of accounting conventions, benefit from tax concessions and optimise cash flow.
Importantly, in the workplace, renting a forklift delivers flexibility and the necessary additional capacity to deal with high volumes of work during peak periods or unexpected levels of goods movements.
All our rental forklifts are subject to regular checks, preventative maintenance and routine servicing. Here at Premier Lift Trucks, as a local specialist, the wide range of latest forklift models and lifting equipment on offer is fully compliant with regulations and Health & Safety Executive (HSE) materials handling requirements.
If your organisation or company is new to forklift use or uses these powered vehicles only occasionally, it is necessary for drivers to receive proper initial or refresher training. For safety, users should remain aware of the potential risks and the importance of not taking shortcuts. Staff visibility is an essential consideration; bright or reflective vests or jackets are highly recommendable. When using pallets, do not exceed the maximum permitted weight and height limits.
Productivity and Extra Capacity
In addition to gas, electric and diesel forklift hire and sales, we also purchase forklifts and offer part exchange. This option is ideal for customers who wish to update or upgrade plant equipment, to enhance warehouse or storage facility capacity and improve safety levels.
