Forklift Rental Solutions Tailored to Your Needs

What is a forklift?

A forklift is a small, powered industrial truck used to lift and move materials and large loads of approximately 900 – 6,800kg, depending on load rating, to impressive heights safely. GTAccess provides forklift hire services for businesses seeking reliable machines to manoeuvre goods on pallets within warehouses, storage units or distribution centres as well as supporting projects which require hydraulic lifting outside.  

Forklifts have several applications, and we can supply the ideal forklift for hire from one of our nationwide depots, suited to your specific needs, outlining each machine’s load capacity, size and more. We also provide IPAF training courses to ensure all your employees are well-versed in the operation and safety of forklifts. Whether you need a forklift for a short period or an extended time, we have the tracked forklift hire options to suit your requirements. 


Electric and Diesel Forklifts for Hire

GTAccess provides electric and diesel options for forklift rental, ensuring there is a solution for all types of projects and uses. Electrically operated forklifts are more often used in indoor situations, where their emission-free operation is appreciated in areas of lower ventilation. Choose our range of diesel forklifts for hire to better suit outdoor environments where they may encounter rougher terrain. Our experienced and friendly team can advise you on the best forklift for your project.  


Electric Forklift Hire

Electric forklift hire is easy with GTAccess, we have a wide selection of electric models with excellent features making them indispensable for warehousing, production line feeding, logistics and unloading trucks and goods transport and much more. In one of these eco-friendly trucks, the 80V batteries are quick to charge and produce zero emissions, keeping your warehouse’s ventilation clean for your workforce. Economical to run and with service included in our contract hire packages, electric forklift rental makes practical and economical sense.  

Diesel Forklift Hire

Our diesel range of forklifts to hire are a popular choice among many industries as they are robust and hardy. With a higher torque, they are perfectly designed for rough terrain and are cheap to run. Diesel forklifts can lift weights of over 3,000 kg to heights of over six metres depending on the model. Diesel forklifts for rental are more durable, operated hydraulically and fitted with all-terrain tyres, making them ideal for construction sites where the terrain can be more uneven and where they won’t need regular charging.
