If you are considering rough terrain forklift rental, you may be working on a sizable project. Most people understand that their project is going to go through different phases. While you may need a rough terrain forklift for a period of time, you may not need it after this part of the job is done.
When you know you aren’t going to need to use a piece of equipment for a long period of time, it is smart to rent it. Instead of buying an expensive piece of equipment and having to store it, you are going to be able to rent the equipment for as short or as long as you would like to for your project and then send it back to the rough terrain forklift rental vendor.
When you are looking for the right rough terrain forklift rental for your job, you need to make sure you get the right kind of forklift. There are many different forklifts that fall under the rough terrain category. If you aren’t sure what you need, you can speak to one of the professionals we work to be able to get the results that you want out of the forklift you choose.
If you are working on a small project but need a forklift to move things around on the rough terrain, you may not need that big of a forklift but you need to make sure that you get a forklift that is big enough for your project. In case you do get a forklift that is not right for your project, you would be able to speak with the vendor you are working with to get the issue solved.
These rough terrain forklifts are class VII and feature big, tractor-style tires so you have plenty of traction to handle even challenging outdoor terrain. They are also powered with diesel engines and available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive and can be the traditional straight mast or a telescoping mast if you need to reach further.
Depending on what you need for your project, you are going to have some variances in prices, but the following prices will give you an estimate so you have an idea what you are going to be putting out for your rental.

To save money on your rough terrain forklift rental, make sure to plan out your building project in a way that will allow you to use your forklift as effectively as possible while you have it rented. If you don’t have to spread out the use of the forklift, you may be able to rent it for a week or even a day if needed.
If you’ve been trying to figure out whether you want to purchase or rent your forklift, you need to know there are pros and cons to both.
The pros of renting your forklift is that you are not going to have to maintain the forklift. The company you rent it from is going to be able to take care of all of those issues for you and if the forklift breaks down while you are using it, they will give you another one to replace it, so the project will be able to move forward. On the other hand, you do not own this forklift and you may end up putting out more money renting it than if you would have bought it.
Another pro is that you are going to get the latest equipment available. Most of the rental companies are going to sell equipment when they start aging so you will always get the best equipment with any new features that may have been added.
You may not be sure about renting but you should know that we guarantee you are going to get the forklift you need in a timely manner. The providers we work with keep their equipment well-maintained so you can get the equipment you need for as long as you need it. You will also be able to get other equipment you might need such as carpet poles, extensions, rotators and more. Give us a call so you can get started with your project right away.
