Many companies in South Africa own forklifts. They will know that it is not a cheap piece of equipment to keep running. Besides the cost to purchase a forklift, you will also have maintenance and when you have an unexpected breakdown, you may also end up paying out a lot of money.

Forklift RentalsAs a forklift gets older, like any vehicle it tends to give issues and you will then start having endless costs. For example, if a forklifts alternator gives in, you will end up paying around R160000 to have it replaced, and that is just for the parts.

This is where you will start seeing the benefits of forklift rental. With forklift rental, you will not have:

  • Monthly capital repayments
  • Service costs
  • Breakdown costs
  • Insurance costs

These four points alone will save you thousands of Rands.

In the forklift hire industry, you generally get two types of rentals. These include:

  • Casual Rentals
  • Full Maintenance Leasing Contracts

If you need the use of a forklift from time to time, then a casual rental is the right option for you. If you need a forklift or a fleet of forklifts on a long term basis, then full maintenance leasing is the correct option to choose.

Full maintenance leasing contracts are a great advantage as you will only need to pay a fixed monthly fee. You will not have any unexpected costs at any stage.
