Can I Book a Fork-Lift Truck for Collection?

If your goods tip the scales at over 1,000 kilograms, you'll need a forklift at both ends of the delivery.

Sadly, this isn't something we offer, so you'll be responsible for sourcing a forklift.

Using the wrong equipment to hoist a heavy item can be seriously risky, so it's really important that the correct lifting equipment is supplied.


Why do some collections require a forklift? 

When your goods weigh over 1,000 kilograms, it's vital that you don't try and shift them without a forklift. Trust us, using a tail lift or lift assist for such hefty goods will likely wreak havoc on your pallets and our equipment. It's just not worth the trouble.

To keep things safe for both you and your valuable goods, it's an absolute must to have a forklift arranged at both ends if your goods add up to more than 1,000 kilograms in total. 


Do you offer forklifts? 

I'm sorry, but we don't have forklifts available; it's not something we offer.

However, if your goods weigh between 750kgs and 1,000kgs, we do have a lift assist service that can safely move your items for you.

For loads less than 750kgs, we've got you covered with our complimentary tail lift service.


What are the pallet weight limits? 

Whether or not you book a tail lift, lift assist or arrange a forklift, there are weight limits in place for ALL pallet sizes.
