Forklift Contract Hire

KMA Forklifts is one of the leading forklift hire companies in Suffolk and the surrounding area and we have many years experience in providing high quality forklift trucks to businesses across the county.

Forklift trucks are used in a wide variety of industries and can often be seen in places like warehouses, construction sites and dockyards. Forklifts are an inevitable part of every operation that involves movement and transportation of heavy and large items between two relatively close locations. The first forklifts were designed in the early 20th century and ever since then; these vehicles have been significantly improved. Although the price of these vehicles has dropped, in many cases it is much more reasonable to use a good forklift hire solution instead of buying one. Forklift hire is a great solution for companies that need the help of forklifts only for a certain period of time.

When we talk about forklift hire, there are basically two types of hiring – forklift contract hire and non-contracted hire. As the name suggests the first option requires users to sign a contract with strict terms of use while the second option is for those who don’t want to pay for coverage of certain risks like servicing, breakdowns etc. Both options have their own advantages and disadvantages, but for many businesses, a contracted hire is the best solution.

Clients also have the opportunity to choose between long-term and short-term hire. You need to find the option that suits your business the best. Short-term hire is the best option for businesses that are not sure how long they will need to use the forklifts and whether they want to use the same service all the time. On the other hand, long-term hire can provide flexibility, stability and certainty. In addition, long-term hire usually comes with certain discounts and bonuses that you don’t get from short-term hire. So, managers and business owners who are planning to use Forklift contract hire need to evaluate all the advantages and risks before they select one of these options.

Most businesses consider short-term hire when they need to finish some seasonal tasks or when they have peaks in demand. This is also an excellent option to cover a breakdown. People use short-term hire when they are organizing events or when they need to store their shipment in the warehouse for instance. Long-term hire involves fixed payments and the agreement includes normal maintenance.

Forklift contracted hire comes with many advantages. First of all, you will have fixed monthly cost. Once you pay the monthly payment you can use the vehicle for the agreed duration. Instead of worrying about the value of the vehicle after you use it, you just return it. In addition, this means that you don’t need to tie up capital and invest in a vehicle that you don’t need all the time.
