Forklift Hire

At Jungheinrich UK we offer a complete range of forklifts available for short term hire (anything from a day upwards). With fast nationwide delivery from our network of UK hire depots, whatever you are lifting or moving we have the right forklift for you. Our forklift fleet is equipped to the highest specification and with an average age of under 24 months, newer forklifts mean greater reliability for you and maximum uptime - all at competitive prices.  

Hire a forklift from one day upwards with fast delivery

Jungheinrich Short Term Hire is for anyone who needs to rent a forklift or pallet truck for anything from one day up to two years - as we understand a five year contract hire or an outright purchase may not be suitable for your business model or current requirement. We cater for forklift rental for regular annual peak seasons (eg. Christmas forklift hire) but also when you need a forklift quickly in a matter of days to hire for daily, weekly or monthly periods during a busy spell or one-off event. With a fleet of approximately 4,000 forklifts and over 60 different truck specifications to choose from, we can provide something to suit every need, indoors and outdoors.
