Forklift Warranty & Service

When you hire a forklift from us, you’re supported with full forklift servicing. Backed by the resources of one of Australia’s leading material handling equipment specialists, you can be assured of quality forklift rentals and service support from Preowned Forklifts Australia

All used forklifts for sale and rental on this site are covered by a statutory warranty, but many are covered by much more. To make it easy to understand just what you’re getting, we grade our forklift warranty levels as Bronze, Silver and Gold Service.

Although the warranty level is clearly indicated for each used forklift for sale, the quality of our second hand forklift stock is such that in some cases it may be possible to negotiate an upgraded coverage, so please ask about this option.

Here’s a list of the comprehensive inspection and testing done before each truck is graded under our rigorous system.
