Forklift Hire Introduction:
In the world of material handling you cannot afford downtime.
I fully understand that your time is valuable and the reliability of our equipment is, of the utmost importance. It is my job to help keep your business running smoothly.
I am a qualified diesel / petrol mechanic, I have been in this business since 1988 and thus have gained many years of experience, but I must still tell you that I am open to learn more each and every day as well. I offer a friendly courteous service and the BEST service response in our industry- guaranteed.
Please note: We also hire our forklifts out per hour, but each time you will have to pay extra for delivery and collection of the machine.
All diesel or petrol used will be for your account extra.
We have various size forklifts to offer you, all of them have the diesel engine and some have the catalyst convertor fitted. From 2.5 to 3 ton machines.
A few of our forklifts have the special sought after FSV 4.7 container masts.
A few of the other forklifts have container V 30 masts.
And then one forklift has a V40 mast, reaches up to 4m in height
All the machines have side shift and we have a set of extra length 1.8m forks available as well for special applications.
If you require a rough terrain or larger forklift, this can be arranged as well, but the hire rates will be different and you also have to take into consideration that the transport of the machines from East London and back to East London will be extra for your account and must also be paid in advance.
All our forklifts have the solid rubber tyres fitted.
Hire of a forklift per hour is as follows:
- R600.00 per hour will give you a forklift with a driver and fuel. This is to offload bricks, cement and other related items.
- R500.00 per hour will give you a forklift without a driver and you will be charged for whatever fuel you have used.
- You will have to pay for the delivery and collection of the forklift for around Queenstown it is R300.00.
Hire of the 2.5 ton Toyota 7 series Forklift per day:
R600.00 per day
Delivery to you and return to our workshop with a radius of 5km = R300.00
If the distance is further, then a rollback truck will have to be used and this cost will be extra, but you will have to pay for the return of the machine to Queenstown up front, as well in advance.
If the machine is required for one week (seven days).
R2 200.00 per week
Rental per month:
Rental per month = R5 000.00 to R7 500.00, this varies to where the machine will be operated and under what terrain conditions etc.
Please note: The fuel tank will be full when the machine leaves the workshop and then while you are using the machine all the diesel or petrol will be at your expense, when it arrives back at the workshop, the tank will then be re-filled and the amount used will also be charged to you.
A separate letter relating to Driver, Environment and Sabotage Abuse will also have to be signed by the client.
We are responsible for all servicing and general maintenance on the machines, but not abuse. This is for short term hire only.
Please note: Your driver has to be licensed (trained to operate a forklift). This training can be done through me as well. If not you will hire the forklift at your own risk. You must also insure the forklift while you have it with you.
Please note: No vat will be added to the above prices, we are not vat registered. This is the price that you will pay.
If more than one machine is required, then please let me know?
Sometimes we get requests from clients on short notice, for example to off-load their truck, planning before hand is the best way to do it, even if you send us some photo's of the product that you wish to off-load.
Please take into consideration that if you were to get a machine from Port Elizabeth or East London from somebody else, the high transport expense would have to be noted as well. Thus it will be cheaper and better for you to rather hire a forklift from us here in Queenstown.
Consider this option and my excellent service instead.
We also carry our routine maintenance on forklifts for various clients already, servicing and breakdowns, thus if you have a forklift and you would like us to service it for you, then also please contact us.
If you are looking to buy a forklift, then also please contact us as well.
Forklifts are very expensive machines, they need to be looked after and serviced on time, otherwise they will end up costing you money.
We have seen many times where the client thinks they are saving money by not servicing their forklifts, but when they contact us that their forklift has a problem, it ends up costing them more than if they were to service it on time. The next time you think that you are saving money by not servicing your forklift, just think for a few moments what in fact paid for the motor vehicle that you drive each day..........it was your forklift.
A few months back we started the re-grooving of your forklift tyres, most times when a client thinks that their forklift tyres are all flat and worn out, they sometimes can still be re-grooved and this emans that we can save you lots of money. See other article about the re-grooving of forklift tyres.
