Sales, Hire and Forklift Training in Sussex | Reasons to Choose our Services

With over 20 years of industry experience, and operating out of the Three Bridges area, Gatwick Forklifts has built its reputation on the supply of quality forklift hire services and forklift training across all Sussex areas. Our growing portfolio includes commercial and industrial clients who happily recommend our professional forklift services to other businesses.

Whether you’re looking for help with new or second-hand forklift sales, or if you only wish to rent a modern Nexen model on a forklift hire contract, there are many great reasons for making our company your first port of call.

On this page, we list the most important reasons to use our forklift services, our approved forklift training courses and the state-of-the-art machinery at our disposal.

With more than two decades served in the industry, our company understands that no two enquiries are ever the same. Our forklift sales and forklift hire departments can find models to suit the individual requirements of all customers in the Sussex area.

Trading as an Independent Business

As an independent company, we keep the personable values of a small business intact whilst still meeting the demands associated with large commercial and industrial orders. Our customer-focused approach leads to lasting relationships with clients throughout Sussex and the South East region.

Much of our new business comes through the recommendations of satisfied customers who have used our forklift services and forklift training courses in the past.


We have more than 20 years of experience as specialists in new and second-hand forklift sales, and in the field of forklift hire. Our skilled instructors also draw upon 25 years of industry experience to lead forklift training courses which comply with LOLER, PUWER, HSE and RTITB directives. We pass this experience down to customers in Sussex through the delivery of a professional forklift service.

Our team attends regular refreshment training sessions too and is always on hand to share its knowledge.

Area Coverage

Gatwick Forklifts covers an expansive trading area. We serve commercial and industrial customers throughout the entire Sussex region, but also take our forklift services into Surrey, Kent and the South East. Clients can count on us for a complete forklift sales and forklift hire service, and for onsite or offsite forklift training, no matter where they happen to be.

We also undertake warehouse design and fitout work.

Modern Forklifts

We supply cutting-edge forklifts that deliver on performance, quality and safety. With access to hundreds of machines from leading brands, and trading as a specialist in the Nexen range, we have complete confidence in our ability to provide you with the best forklift sales or forklift hire service in Sussex. Gatwick Forklifts works tirelessly to provide users with the most modern machinery in our sector.

Purchase or hire with confidence too, and don’t forget to ask us about our finance options.

Fully Insured Company

As a responsible company that cares about its customers, Gatwick Forklifts has comprehensive insurance with public and product liability cover up to a value of £10million. In addition, our forklift sales include warranties and, based on expected usage levels, a three-year warranty should cover 3,000 hours of work. Warranties will vary based on the type of machinery, and the brand, that you purchase.

We also offer forklift hire insurance to our Sussex customers, which covers all necessary repair and maintenance work.

Qualified Personnel

Our team is fully qualified and knowledgeable in all aspects of forklift sales and hire. If you need forklift training for yourself or for your employees, you can rest assured that our skilled instructors have the necessary qualifications to hold Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment (LOLER) courses to exacting standards, and to issue certificates upon course completion.

Very few companies in Sussex have personnel as qualified as our own, or the forklift services to match.

Health & Safety Conscious

Our commitment to health and safety is just one of the reasons why customers and clients recommend our forklift services to others. Every member of our team understands current HSE standards and commits to making working environments safer through forklift sales and forklift hire services which tie in with the demands, and the infrastructure, of your Sussex business.

Every year, companies across the UK report 8,000 forklift-related injuries. Our forklift training courses help you to avoid incidents in adherence to the Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

Free Estimates

Whether you require a short-term forklift hire solution for a one-off project, or if you are looking to invest into new machinery through our forklift sales department, Gatwick Forklifts can offer a free, no-obligation estimate with accurate pricing for the forklift, the attachments and, if required, the forklift training too. The delivery of a complete forklift service matters to us, but so does fair and transparent pricing. We promise to always treat you fairly.

With forklift sales and forklift hire at such competitive prices, prospective customers in Sussex never need to look anywhere else for new equipment.
