A forklift can be an expensive investment for your company, but it’s also a necessary one if you have any heavy lifting that needs to be done. Whether you need a forklift temporarily or need to purchase one for long-term daily use, United Industrial Service Corporation has a selection of new and used equipment to get the job done.

Types Of Forklifts

There are several things to consider when you’re looking for a forklift or any heavy equipment for your business, and United industrial Service Corporation has many different options to suit your needs. We carry a line of pallet jacks, aerial lifts, boom lifts and skid steers that are essential to your operations.

Pallet jacks are our most basic form of lift, intended to move pallets from one location to another easily. They include manual pallet jacks, powered pallet jacks and rough terrain pallet jacks. If you have a small retail shop or a personal warehouse, the manual pallet jack is small in size and perfect for easier jobs. The powered pallet jack lets you move heavier loads, while the rough terrain jack is ideal for moving construction and building materials outdoors. Regardless of which machine you need, our sales team can help you analyze your needs and pick out a machine.

Aerial lifts lower and raise so loads can be transported safely from the ground to a shelf higher up. They range from manual hand pump models to electronic spring-actuated designs. If you must access areas that may be blocked by barriers or obstacles, a boom lift has sections that make it easier to move horizontally as well as vertically while in the air. Finally, a skid steer is ideal for landscaping and construction because it’s a lightweight and maneuverable machine that makes it easy to push, pull and lift heavy materials.

Choosing The Right Lift

Our selection of forklifts varies in size and style. By answering a few questions about your business and your needs, you can help us match you to the best model to get the job done. Some of the information we may need to know includes how much material you plan on moving and what the maximum capacity of the loads is, what type of surface you’ll run the forklift on most often and whether or not you’ll need attachments. We’ll also need to know the size of the space you plan on using the machine in. These factors, along with how high you need to lift the loads and whether you’ll be indoors or out, all affect which type of lift you need.

Renting Or Owning

If you’re in the market for a forklift, you can choose to purchase a new model or rent a machine to free up your capital. When you purchase a forklift from us, we can help you decide on customized options, and a purchased vehicle is eligible for a tax deduction at the end of the year, which may help you when you start adding up what you owe. Renting is ideal for seasonal use, and planned maintenance is figured into the rental contract, which may make operating a rented machine better for your budget.
