Why_Rent_a_forklift_from_a_forklift_dealershipRenting a forklift is a bit like renting a car, but with a few key differences. No one will try to hard sell you on an upgrade, extra insurance, or GPS - just to name a few. 

There are also a lot more options to consider when renting a forklift. Unless you have a lot of passengers or luggage, the type of car doesn’t matter too much. Forklifts, on the other hand, are designed for specific needs and applications:

  • Indoor vs. outdoor
  • Gas, diesel or electric
  • Narrow-aisles
  • Large capacity
  • ...and so on

Helping customers choose the right material handling equipment is our area of expertise. Unlike some rental yards, we won’t rent you a piece of equipment that isn’t right for your application because it’s all we have on hand.

In addition to being a forklift dealer, Southern States Toyotalift (SST) is a full-service material handling provider. We also offer forklift operator training and rent more than just forklifts. Here are a few more reasons to choose the equipment experts at SST the next time you need to rent a forklift, boom lift or other material handling equipment.
