Forklifts, also known as fork trucks, are forked material handling pieces of equipment designed to move primarily palletized or racked items. Forklifts are available for use inside on concrete, or outside on rough surfaces that are not extremely muddy or wet. For job site conditions requiring four-wheel drive, we suggest looking into one of our telehandlers. Our forklifts are available in electric, gas, propane, or diesel depending on your application and capacity requirements. As with any material handling equipment, forklifts vary heavily depending on the intended application. Wellbuilt Equipment offers free on-site estimates for all our customers in our service area. Call our office today and one of our friendly staff will gladly help you find the lift that suits your needs.
