Counterbalance Forklifts

Hire Safe Solutions is dedicated to providing reliable and reactive solutions to our customers’ needs across the UK and ROI.

We pride ourselves on our proactive, flexible service, sourcing the right kit for the job at the right price.

As we are already working with some of the most trusted brands in the sector, JCB, Manitou, Niftylift, JLG and more, it should come as no surprise that our brand of choice for intralogistics solutions is Jungheinrich.

Like us, they value long-term customer relationships built on family values like honesty and trust – backed by their sophisticated approach to innovating with real value. The Jungheinrich range of forklift trucks presents practical, multi-purpose solutions always with safety in mind.

Why Jungheinrich?

Hire Safe Solutions always work with the best equipment for the job. We believe that Jungheinrich presents a superior response to the wide variety of indoor and outdoor intralogistics operations.

Indoor jobs, moving materials and goods over smooth floors at low levels might be perfect for the humble pallet truck, but the reality is that conditions can vary and change in real-time, differing terrain, turning radius, stow-ability – all contributing factors to selecting the right kit. Therefore, the ability to anticipate and react to these variables should be part of the due diligence before hiring or purchasing any equipment.

Diesel, gas or electric, with three or four-wheel variants, Jungheinrich counterbalance forklift trucks are designed to tackle the close retrieval and movement of goods, with the power to handle up to 5,000kg capacity. Their flexibility makes them a default all-rounder and the most commonly used truck.

Some of the Jungheinrich range at Hire Safe Solutions:

3 series: best-suited to stacking and transporting goods outside, robust and reliable, with a low centre of gravity, the exceptional reversing speed sees it excel at loading work. Also available in 4-wheel variants.

4 series: excellent throughput performance, even in extreme weather conditions.

5 series: totally at home indoors or out, this electric 4-wheel truck has smart mounting options so it can handle almost any kind of loaded goods.

Our Jungheinrich counterbalance forklifts have lift height options of between 2.5 and 7.5 metres and lift capacities between 3,500-5,000kg.

I know what kit I want, but what about an operator?

The vast experience of our team has seen an increase in demand for our skills. In addition to being the leading supplier of mechanical powered access solutions for working at height, we also offer operator training.

Fully-trained operators mean so much more than a tick-box exercise. Forklift safety is paramount for operators, as well as benefitting other team members, the site and your reputation. A safe site is a happier and more efficient place to be. In addition, expertly trained staff can help future-proof your business and help retain valuable skills.

Hire Safe Solutions runs recognised operator and construction-related training, with bespoke packages available to address your specific needs.

Jungheinrich counterbalance forklift trucks are just some of the extensive Hire Safe Solutions range. Let us help you determine the best equipment and training solution for your next project. Call today: 0800 865 4455 or email:
