how to rent a forklift

When You Hire a Forklift From Us You Have Two Options:

short term rentals

Short Term Forklift Rental

1 Day to 1 Year

At Masslift Africa, we always strive to offer our clients service excellence and by trying to understand our customers’ operational needs we offer a range of forklift hire options to meet those needs on a short term basis.

We offer forklift rental agreements on a day to day basis or a month to month basis. The rates are very competitive, and include servicing and general maintenance.

long term rentals

Long Term Forklift Rental

12 to 60 Months

A long term rental is classified as a rental for a period longer than 12 months. There are two different options with a long term rental. One where the machine will return to Masslift at the end of the period, and one where ownership of the machine passes to the customer at the end of the term. At Masslift these are referred to as:
A Full Maintenance Rental Contract
This is broken into a finance portion and a maintenance portion. All maintenance of the forklift, at the correct service intervals, along with genuine parts, labour and call outs are included. At the end of the period, the ownership of the forklift will return to Masslift.

A Full Maintenance Rental Contract with Ownership
This works in exactly the same way as the first option, but, as the name suggests, ownership of the forklift passes to you, the customer at the end of the term.

What’s included in long term forklift rentals?
The rental or FMC rates quoted include all services, maintenance and repair arising from fair wear and tear under normal operation. This includes all lubricants, filters, parts, cleaning materials travelling and labour required for the repair and maintenance of the forklift.

What’s excluded in long term forklift rentals?
Excluded are batteries, tyres, forks, fuel used, insurance and all damage due to collision, impact, misuse, mal-operation and negligence.
