The Benefits of Short Term Hire

Short term hire can be beneficial for a variety of reasons.

It can allow you a chance to trial a new piece of materials handling equipment to enhance your business without being tied to a long term commitment. It can help you to tackle short term challenges, like increasing your machinery resources for peak periods, or hiring a scissor lift to carry out site maintenance.

If you don’t want to commit to buying, then short term equipment hire could be the solution.

Long Term Hire

Hitec are proud to offer a lease rental option, allowing you to hire the MHE you need for up to seven years.

We can work with you to tailor your hire experience, creating a payment plan that will allow you to budget accordingly and book in frequent services to ensure that your forklifts (or other MHE) continue to function safely.

We can even customise trucks as required, and you’ll have your own dedicated account manager to give you the freedom to push your business forward.


One main reason is that the upfront costs are normally lower compared to when buying a truck. Another advantage is that monthly lease payments allow businesses to free up capital to use for other business needs. These are important points to consider when deciding whether to hire or purchase.

There are a few things to take into consideration when discussing hiring as truck:

– What is the trucks purpose?

– What is the required lifting height for the load?

– What is the weight of the load?

– Are there any height limitations to consider?

– Is the loading bay accessible?

There are a few other things to take into consideration too, for example, what is the minimum clearance required for the truck, both for unloading (for example, port height) and during operations (for example, presence of ventilation ducts or low beams)?

Another question to ask yourself is do you know how the truck will be unloaded? Are there specific unloading facilities such as a quay, or alternative options? The choice of truck often depends on the availability of a loading dock, necessitating different types of lorries.

If you’re looking for used material handling equipment, we’ll go that extra mile to source what you need.
