Toyota Material Handling has added over 250 new counterbalance forklifts to its short-term hire fleet.

Toyota has expanded its 3000 strong fleet of short-term hire trucks to include 250 new counterbalance forklifts to help satisfy demand for planned and emergency short-term hire needs. The new trucks include Toyota’s latest range of Tonero engine-powered forklifts and Traigo electric-powered forklifts, which are fitted with Toyota System of Active Stability, helping to improve safety and productivity.

The new counterbalance forklift trucks were delivered at the start of the New Year and are available for hire now.

Alan Sowersby, Business Solutions Director for Toyota Material Handling UK said “Often customers need short-term hire trucks as an emergency replacement or if they have unexpected demand, therefore they need a reliable and efficient supplier. By analysing our customers’ requirements, we have increased our fleet in the areas where we have the most demand. Companies need short-term hire trucks for a variety of reasons and we want to ensure we have the right trucks available, when they need it”.

Toyota Material Handling UK is able provide a wide range of short-term hire options from a single day to several months, including hand pallet trucks, counterbalance forklifts and a range of warehouse trucks.

Sowersby adds “In addition to the new trucks, we have also developed the short-term hire fleets that are located at our regional depots. These depots hold trucks that suit the local industry and customer requirements, allowing us to provide quick and efficient 24 hour delivery. All this new activity has coincided with our latest developments on the internet where a customer can now chat live online to our short-term hire team to enquire or order a truck.”
