How to Buy or Rent the Right Forklift for Your Business

Any business that regularly ships or receives large amounts of freight will eventually need to buy or rent their own forklift. These propane powered workhorses and their telescopic aerial lifts make moving stock from place to place a lot easier. Buying, or renting, a fork lift is not cheap so you want to make sure you've got the right one for your business. What follows are some tips for business owners for getting their fork lift purchase nailed down.

  • Fork lifts use a counter balancing weight to enable heavy lifting. Consequently, they are very heavy pieces of equipment. Have a forklift salesman evaluate the floors of your warehouse to make certain they can hold a forklift. Most, but not all, concrete floors are forklift friendly. Some parts of your facility may require a the use of a small pallet jack instead of a full size forklift.
  • Be certain that the forklift you're buying is a good fit for your facility today, and in the future. Narrow warehouse aisles and fork lifts are definitely not a good match. And remember that different forklifts have different aerial reach capacities. Your new forklift won't do much good if it can't reach the top racks of the warehouse.
  • Try finding a heavy equipment dealer that offers both sales and training. If you're not hiring a full time forklift operator, you'll to certify you staff members in proper forklift safety techniques.
  • When buying a forklift, be certain that you've also purchased a good maintenance and repair plan to go with it. Forklifts are generally pretty reliable, but they'll still need regular work by a qualified mechanic. And just like your car, having a broken forklift repaired can be very expensive.
