Forklifts are designed to handle and transport both raw materials and goods safely and efficiently. From time to time these machines must be transported from one work site to another. An average sit-down forklift with the capacity to lift 5,000 pounds will itself weigh as much as 9,000 pounds. The average automobile weighs approximately 4,000 pounds. Weighing in at more than two times the weight of the average family automobile, forklifts require some special consideration and accommodations when being transported.

Many factors come into play when transporting a forklift. Just a few of the key points that we ensure are:

  • Proper and safe loading & unloading.
  • Using the right equipment to secure the forklift.
  • Verify weight load requirements.
  • Ensuring fuel system is prepared for transport.
  • ...and provide excellent communication and service for Peace of Mind.
