We specialise in forklift sales and the Nexen range is our preferred brand of lifting equipment. Gatwick Forklifts can supply to you in any volume, and we have a choice of new or used models available. If you are new to forklift services and don’t know which type of model you’ll need, we can send somebody along to your premises to inspect conditions, the type of work involved and how much lifting you’ll undertake using our equipment.
From there, our representative can make a suitable recommendation on the make and model you’ll need. We’ll also put you in touch with our forklift sales department to arrange purchase, finance and delivery.
Customers and clients from Crawley and the surrounding Brighton, Croydon, Dartford, East Grinstead, Epsom, Guildford, Horsham, Leatherhead, Redhill, Sittingbourne, Slough and Tunbridge Wells areas can order the following Nexen models:
• Three-wheeled Nexen counterbalanced battery forklifts
• Four-wheeled Nexen counterbalanced battery forklifts
• 2WD and 4WD Nexen diesel forklifts for rough terrain use
Our forklift services include the supply of pre-owned forklifts from major manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Caterpillar, Artisan and Warrior.
We understand that you might not want to include the purchase of a new forklift into this year’s capital expenditure budget. To help you balance costs, our forklift sales department can help you to obtain finance so you can spread investment into machinery over a more affordable period of time. We’re here to help you grow your business, and to find practical ways of upscaling for future growth with a complete forklift service.
Gatwick Forklifts can help you to secure two different forms of finance:
Customers and clients across the South East region who need to use forklifts on a daily basis can benefit from an alternative option to traditional forklift sales with a lease purchase. We can help to organise hire purchase agreements which allow you to pay for machinery over a set period of time.
This results in tax benefits, and you will eventually own the forklift while paying for it through an affordable contract.
This forklift service spreads capital payments for customers and clients in the Hampshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex areas, and you can cancel the agreement at the end of the first contract period should you need to. Please be aware that a finance lease package won’t cover servicing or repair work under insurance, but our forklift sales team can always discuss a plan to best suit your needs.
Advice on lease purchases and finance leasing comes from experienced personnel with many years of experience in forklift finance.
We tailor our forklift services in ways that help us to share our industry experience. Gatwick Forklifts runs a series of forklift training courses, all approved by the Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) and the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE). We aim to improve operator safety and understanding to prevent accidents in the workplace.
Our forklift training courses include:
• Novice Forklift Training Course (3 to 5 days)
• Experienced Driver Course (2 to 3 days)
• Refresher Forklift Training Course (1 day)
• Conversion Forklift Training Course (1 day)
