Things to Consider Before Signing up for Forklift Hire

Forklift hire solutions are great for businesses of all shapes and sizes. They help companies to access technology and heavy lifting equipment that they would otherwise be unable to afford and enjoy access to. However, this is not for everyone. Some companies will benefit more from outright buying their own forklifts, while others might benefit from long-term or short-term forklift hire. How do you know which is right for your business?

Don’t end up locking yourself into the wrong contract. Make sure to eliminate all the guesswork and instead make an informed decision. At Elite Forklift Rental, we always endeavour to provide you with all of the information that you will need to make an informed decision when renting forklifts from us.

Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the correct forklift for your needs.

The Weight of the Forklift

The first thing that you need to consider is the actual weight that the unit will be required to lift. In what form will the material be raised? In boxes, on pallets or shrink-wrapped? These are key points to consider to avoid hiring the wrong size forklift. Keep in mind that some irregularly sized objects may also need special front-end attachments.

Height of the Lift

How high do you intend raising the items? The height will also directly influence the size of the forklift that you will need. If you need to raise the items two stories or higher, then you will require at least a six-wheeled forklift unit. Larger sized units can take care of heavier duty needs, while smaller sized vehicles are ideal for unloading flatbed trucks or for use in warehouses.
