Ownership Options

With our easy and varied ownership options, Forklift Solutions enables you to have a forklift – or a fleet of forklifts - working for you and your business on whatever terms best suit your operating model. We understand that every business is different and that allows us to make a variety of finance options available.

Having efficient, reliable and safe vehicles is essential for effective materials handling, and there's a range of different ways to get them. Here, we give you our guidance on that difficult question - should you rent, buy or lease your next forklift truck?

Short Term Rentals

So which option should you choose?

Each of these options gives a number of advantages and disadvantages, and many businesses use a combination of all three to achieve their materials handling needs. It's a question of weighing up how much flexibility you need, how much you want to spend, and what you want to use your forklifts for.
