Why Should You Hire a Telescopic Handler From Us?

We can provide all of the best types of telehandlers available at an extremely high quality and we deliver to sites across the UK.

Site equipment, like telehandler machines, can be expensive to buy and own, which is why we offer a full rental service, including delivery and collection from construction sites. A telehandler can also be used when working on a house building project, as their overall height makes it easier to manage materials from above.

We are one of the best in the construction industry and can offer next day delivery to many sites, house building or other locations across the country, depending on availability.

To tackle the building site head-on, you will need reliable tools, and there are many benefits to a telescopic handler. These kinds of machines come with an adjustable lift height which is why they are ideally suited to construction work where you need to access materials far away.

We offer a wide range of machinery and have a full range of construction devices on offer that are suitable for all kinds of work. A telehandler will provide a full reach and has a good weight capacity.

We also provide telehandler attachments for hire, adding length or weight when needed. From the JCB 540 to larger telehandlers, from a 4-metre telehandler to a 20-metre telehandler, we have everything you need under one roof and make it easier for you to load, move and deliver materials on site.

You should not lift heavy loads without the right equipment, and this is exactly what telescopic handlers, with their four-wheel steering, are for.

The overall height of the telehandler will vary based on what you need and can be adjusted. Our full range offers a long reach, with the JCB 540 small metre telehandler range, to our 20-metre telehandler being available for hire today.

Browse our latest machines on our website or contact our customer team during opening hours to learn more about our hiring prices.

Telehandler Hire Costs

What is a Telehandler?

A telehandler is a machine that offers a varying lift height and is a great tool for moving materials. It is a versatile device as it is a telescopic forklift designed for greater overall length and lift height on site.

Using a telehandler makes it easier to lift heavy materials due to the great max weight capacity, and the crane length provides greater reach. This is why this kind of lift is commonly found on construction sites, but there are also industrial and domestic uses for this machine, as telehandlers come in various sizes and have attachments.

Telehandlers come in various sizes, including their max lift height and weight capacity. Most of these machines are four-wheel drive, so they can be controlled on-site.

The overall length and lift height of a multi metre telehandler can vary based on what you choose, but we categorise these machines by their max lift height for safety purposes. This is their overall length that is covered by plant insurance.

Telehandler Attachments

There are various attachments you can add to a telehandler lift based on the work you need to do.


Buckets are designed to scape and lift heavy loads from the site. Telehandlers fitted with a bucket can sometimes be used for digging with the right attachment.


Forks are used to manage and move loads from the site, with options for dual positioning or stable forks.


These are similar to forks as they are also designed for loading and lifting.

Other Attachments

Our telehandlers come with a variety of attachments, making our equipment hire suitable for all needs and customers across the nation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a telehandler instead of a forklift?

Telehandlers are some of the most flexible machines you can hire. With their varying height as well as additional attachments, one machine can be used for a variety of chores.

What training do I need to operate a telehandler?

To handle the four-wheel steering of telehandlers, you need to have a driving license. An additional forklift license is needed to operate this machinery.

How much weight can a telehandler lift?

Each telehandler will have its own max weight capacity, and there will be a sign on the device indicating this. You must not exceed the max weight or lift limit.


If you are looking for telescopic handlers for a low price, please contact our customer service centre today to learn more.
