Forklift Hire In Leicester

Forklifts are vital to many business operations and can completely revolutionise processes in businesses not currently using them. However, buying a forklift outright isn’t always affordable for smaller companies, so hiring your fleet might be the better financial option.

At Forklift Hire, we make hiring forklifts easy. We have a wide selection of forklifts for hire to suit a range of budgets and requirements, including lease purchase and rental contract options. Browse our extensive page listings to find the right forklift for your business.


We have hundreds of forklifts and other material handling equipment available for hire. Choose from diesel, electric, or LP gas models across a variety of well-known and reputable manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Caterpillar, Aisle-Master and more.

Our listings include both new and refurbished machines that all come with next day delivery throughout Leicester and the rest of the UK. Our used machines are refurbished to a very high standard and have the same premium quality as our new equipment but with a lower price tag.
