£1m short term articulated forklift fleet investment

Flexi Narrow Aisle – the UK-based manufacturer of the Flexi range of articulated forklift trucks – has announced an investment of over in £1mllion in its short term rental (STR) fleet.

The investment means that Flexi now has over 300 trucks in its STR fleet – which is understood to be considerably more than any other articulated forklift specialist.

The average age of the trucks in Flexi’s short term hire fleet is now less than 4 years old.

Trucks can be hired from between one week and 12 months and include full maintenance and service support in the weekly rental cost.

Flexi Narrow Aisle’s sales and marketing director, John Maguire, comments: “There is a growing trend towards the use of Flexi articulated truck technology across all industry sectors and short term rental is increasingly seen as an attractive way of quickly acquiring additional lift truck capacity by more and more companies to support seasonal peaks and the increased business levels.”

He continues: “Short term rental appeals to companies for various reasons but operational and budgetary flexibility are perhaps the biggest drivers. Companies can add short term rental trucks to their fleet to cover busy periods while finance directors can find short term contracts useful as the trucks do not always need to appear in the user company’s balance sheet.”

The full range of Flexi articulated forklift trucks – including the recently launched  Flexi VNA and HiLOAD versions – are now available on short term hire contracts. All the products are offered for next day delivery and installation anywhere in the UK and are maintained through Flexi Narrow Aisle’s service and support national network.
