Leasing forklifts can help businesses be more agile and reduce their costs. Forklift truck rental agreements are necessary to fully reap the benefits of renting forklifts or purchasing used forklifts.
If you are looking to rent more than one temporary forklift, it is a good idea to speak to your local dealer. Once you know what your lift truck requires, you can start discussing details like:
- Required for additional forklift features, such as add-ons or alarms.
It is important to know the charging requirements of electric forklift trucks and forklift batteries. Electric forklift batteries require charging. Professional installation may require this. Ask your local forklift dealer to discuss the options available for charging and storing the battery.
- Set a time period for when you plan to rent the property. It is important to plan ahead as rental rates can change.
Overtime charges may apply to forklifts that are used more than an 8-hour day or 40-hour week and 160 hours per month.
- When you return your forklift, ask for a quote for damages and review fees.
Make sure to review your insurance policy. Although the equipment is the responsibility of the dealer, it is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance policy covers you, your operator, and any other employees in your facility in case of damage or loss.
