Forklift Rentals

Flexible short term and long term rentals & rent to own solutions

Short term rentals

Our customers choose a short-term forklift lease period to cover seasonal demands and/or avoid downtime. A short-term rental period is defined as a period ranging from one hour to twelve months in which our equipment is rented. Our short term forklift hire rates are reasonable. Remain flexible and rent exactly the forklift trucks you need at the time. The flexibility of Bidvest Materials Handling’s short-term rental solution, complemented by competitive rental rates and superior after sales service, make the offering a cut above the rest.

Long term rentals

Our long term rental contracts not only ensure the financing of your trucks but also that they are fully operational – thanks to the already included full service benefits. At the same time you benefit from flexible terms and maximum cost certainty. Terms of 12-60 months; one contract for everything (financing, full service). Carefree use combined with guaranteed operational readiness; at the end of the contract: return or extend by follow-up contract according to individual needs.

Rent to own

Rent to Own forklift trucks are now available to help you meet today’s demand while also preparing for the future.
