When considering sales or rentals of forklifts, customers can seek out forklift sales and rental providers to learn more about each option. Sales associates are skilled at connecting customers with the right piece of machinery or equipment for their construction, warehouse, or other material handling needs.
Dealers of forklifts and other equipment such as aerial lifts, concrete booms, and stackers usually also provide delivery of the machines after a sale is made. Customers can also pick up the machinery they need when they rent, especially if the location is nearby. These companies should certify that their equipment is operating efficiently and safely, as the operator’s safety is of utmost importance, as is that of any bystanders. Customers can get these assurances in writing.
Many dealers have online sites that provide virtual inventory searches, buyers’ guides, and product reviews. Online catalogs may be separated by product type, such as pallet trucks, tools, jacks, and narrow aisle forklifts. They may be further separated by capacity, max height, or tire type.
Customers can also get rent and lease quotes on new and used machines, as well as access to 24x7 customer service in some cases. They may also be able to search for replacement parts, tools, stackable containers, and attachments. Other services may include storage services, repair, operator training, aerial lift repair, and financing.
Forklift sales and rental dealers most likely offer warranties and guarantees on the machines they sell, giving the customer peace of mind. They should also provide evidence of adherence to high safety standards for the purposes of the machines, such as telescopic forklifts, in a variety of industries, such as construction and warehousing.
