There are two things you need to run a warehouse: strong pallet racking and reliable forklifts.
Both work together to create a functional business, and one without the other is useless.
When it comes to the pallet-racking side of things, we’ve got you covered, and for the forklifts, we work with Material Handling Solutions, a Kiwi-owned and operated business, run by a team with decades of combined experience.
Material Handling Solutions
MHS supply and service forklifts of the most reputable brands across a range of product categories.
As an independent business, MHS is free to focus on the individual needs of customers, finding a solution that fits them rather than selling them a brand name they are contracted to.
Being proudly independent, they have the freedom to select from a broad mix of forklifts, new, used, petrol, diesel, and electric, ensuring you have exactly the vehicle you need for the job.
How they can help you
No matter your industry, MHS has the forklift to suit you. Whether it’s reach trucks, narrow aisle trucks, or pedestrian stackers, they have what you need to get the job done.
Retail and wholesale
With high stock turnover and diverse inventory, solid, reliable forklifts are essential to keep everything running smoothly. Any downtime not only costs you money but damages your reputation as well.
3PL operators must stay agile in order to maintain productivity in a continuously evolving industry. A 3PL warehouse can be bedlam with people, vehicles and machines coming and going. Finding the right forklift for the job is paramount to a safe and efficient operation.
Even with expensive production line machinery, many manufacturing businesses are held up by unsuitable forklifts. Depending on the work you’re in, you might need specialist forklift equipment or bespoke attachments to handle certain goods.
The FMCG sector has a uniquely challenging set of material handling needs, with fast turnover as the bread and butter of the industry. The right forklifts will help you reduce running costs and emissions, support systems already in place, and minimize unexpected downtime.
MHS supply construction companies of all shapes and sizes, so they know a reliable workhorse is essential when it comes to forklift trucks. Construction companies need machines that can tackle challenging environments, handle difficult terrain, and lift heavier than normal loads.
In the transport industry, every second counts. Couriers, logistics and freight companies need vehicles that keep up with the fast-paced work environment, handle multiple pallets at once, and keep going through multiple shifts.
New and Used forklifts
MHS always have an option for you when it comes to forklifts. Whether you’re starting out as a new business, covering for machinery that’s out of action, or taking on more drivers for a limited time, they can help.
They have top-of-the-line vehicles; new off the production line or quality second hand. New machines come with servicing, parts, repairs, and advice, while pre-owned vehicles come from their well-maintained lease fleet.
Renting and leasing
One of the reasons we direct people to MHS is because we know buying a forklift isn’t suitable or even necessary for everyone. Fortunately, their fully serviced forklifts are ready for immediate short or long-term lease, working around your needs.
By renting or leasing a forklift, you can plan out your budget and operational costs, scaling up or downsizing if and when required. MHS flexible contracts allow you to respond to growth, seasonal demand or any unforeseen circumstances, all without breaking the bank.
We highly recommend MHS
Pallet racking and forklifts go hand in hand, so when we recommend a forklift company, we don’t do so lightly.
With MHS not tied to one brand or type of forklift, they can work with you, discovering which machine is best suited to the job at hand.
They carry or can order new, used, or lease machines to fit your budget, space and stock, and with planned and ad hoc maintenance by technicians who know forklifts inside and out, they can service your vehicles anywhere in New Zealand.
