Forklifts are one of the most widely used industrial use vehicles. From moving pallets of goods around warehouses, to moving lumber and other heavy materials, forklifts are seen all over the place in today's shipping and manufacturing world. Forklifts are available from both local equipment distributors, as well as through a new breed of online forklift dealers. Be sure to check quotes from both types of seller, as prices may vary dramatically.
Forklifts come in a massive variety of sizes, load handling abilities, and with different power sources. From internal combustion engines, to quiet and clean electric trucks, be sure to consider all of the potential uses of your forklifts before making a purchase. Not all forklifts have the same ease of operation though. Be sure to consider the training and expertise of those that will be using the forklift before determining which forklift is best for your operation. Check with both forklift dealers as well as the manufacturers to see what training is needed for their forklifts to be used.
