When to choose a short term forklift rental

Project work

If you have a project on the horizon that demands additional equipment to be completed successfully without hindering present operations, look no further than our rental services. We can offer short-term solutions to help with your specific needs and ensure timely completion within budget constraints. If circumstances arise where an extension is required, we are more than happy to accommodate this request. Reach out today to discuss how we can assist with your project requirements.


In theory, the idea is simple – move point A to point B. We have helped many companies with additional equipment turn this theory into easy practice.

Relocations generally have a short time frame in which to complete the move. The existing equipment can do the heavy lifting at the start, but you will need additional equipment at the new location to unload the trucks and start putting the stock away. We've helped many companies do this, including relocation companies, from start to finish.

Seasonal demand

Each industry has its seasonal demand for extra customer orders, or it could be a planned sale that has gone better than expected. Either way, you may need extra gear to get your product moving.

When the sleigh bells start jingling, warehousing runs faster than flat out. The additional load and volume of orders puts added pressure on the warehouse managers and operators. Extra staff generally require additional forklifts to load and unload, and our short-term rental fleet has the equipment necessary to help you get the work done.

End of financial year

Sales teams and warehouses are trying to clear as much stock as possible (probably so they don't have to do stocktake) from May to July. This puts added pressure on the warehouse managers and operators to get the orders out as quickly as possible. Extra staff generally require additional forklifts to load and unload, and our short-term rental fleet has the equipment necessary to help you get the work done.

Equipment transport

Moving your stock is only one component of the whole relocation. Unless you're upgrading your equipment, the equipment must also be transitted from your original location to the new one. Our forklift transport services can relocate your equipment — regardless of size or location. Contact us today to book yours.


Inventory stocktake occurs in every warehouse. When it's stocktake time, it puts an extra load onto the existing fleet and staff to complete it accurately and on time.

We help operations achieve this through short-term rental of cages, harnesses, stock pickers, and forklifts to help the counting process.

Why choose a long term forklift rental

Below, we'll explore the benefits and considerations of long term forklift rental so that you can make an informed decision on whether it's right for your business needs. So let's get started!

Benefits of Long Term Rental

Some companies prefer to own and some prefer to rent or hire. But which is better for you? Whilst we cannot answer that directly, as each situation is different for every company, there are some distinct benefits for renting equipment in particular forklifts.  Warehouses and operations try to make every cent count whilst keeping maximum productivity. With, usually, a limited budget to work with, having fully maintained forklifts removes alot of the cost and headache from the operations team. This can be scaled from a basic setup to an advanced application to improve six sigma lean production. Long term rentals can provide, at a minimum, the following benefits:

  • Access to younger machines without large initial capital outlay
  • Additional fleet during dynamic or seasonal periods
  • Balance Sheet benefits
  • Actual maintenance being completed and not delayed or put off due to 'budget' constraints
  • Fixed regular costs 
  • Variety and range of choice - single brand, best of category or hydrid fleets
  • Leverage from our experienced teams
  • Ability to trade-in existing fleet - operational or not
  • Ability to repurpose MHE management time & skills to other key areas. 

Stability & Security

When you are tasked to manage your own fleet, alot of items and tasks get missed, put off or declined due to 'budget constraints'. Our long term rental options are fully maintained, which means that all of the servicing and maintenance repair (from wear and tear) are included into the rental price. This gives you and your forklifts peace of mind that it will be running at optimal capacity all the time whilst minimising operational costs and control your budget. This allows you and your team more time to focus on the operation and movement of your product rather than worrying about non-core items such as servicing, maintenance and fleet management.

​In the big wide world of warehousing and logistics, most companies understand that they have a minimum requirement for the fleet that they need to get them through their day to day operations. This fleet is known as the core fleet, and that particular fleet will have forklifts to do the majority of the work that is required. This could be a mix of power pallets, counter balance, high reach etc to achieve the production goals of the business. But what happens when you have seasonal demand, a project that needs to be done or an unusual requirement to complete as part of a proof of concept for your client?

​We offer both dynamic and seasonal options for our clients, and this means that you don't need to add extra forklifts to your core fleet for the duration of the agreement. Instead we can 'bolt' these units onto your existing agreement for the short duration that you need them, and return them when your done prior to the main agreement. This not only reduces your fleet expenses over the long haul, but also reduces your rates on seasonal equipment for those durations - as we don't charge full retail for our dynamic fleet and long term customers who have these requirements.
