Needed a fork lift truck to shift some pallets. We were after something very basic for our delivery on Tuesday.

Anyone able to recommend anything?

Thanks in advance - Zak.

How much should I expect to pay to hire one out for a day? (In Birmingham)

I would say you are looking at loads of money. What have you got to shift and over what sort of terrain?
#5
For a single days hire you will probably have to hire truck and driver, FLT hire normally tends to be longer term

But as above, you're best with a truck & driver

Remember - ALWAYS reverse downhill.

if its not too heavy u might be better off with a pallet truck does the same thing u just need to use manual labour

Hiring a truck and driver will be at least £200 a day :thinking:

As bigbob said, if ya on a even floor get a pallet truck, buy a new one for about £150 or hire for £30 a day.

If that's no good, go ask one of the guys on a local building site if he wants to earn a few quid ;-)
