Here at Gwent Mechanical Handling we understand that every business has different needs, requirements and financial situations, which is why we offer the widest possible choice of forklift truck finance options that can be tailored to suit your business and forklifts.

We have arranged finance for many thousands of forklift truck purchases over the years, supported by some of the strongest financial organisations in the world, so you can be confident that we can provide expert advice and a practical and flexible solution to any situation.

Forklift Finance options available include:


This tax-efficient funding option allows your business to grow without placing your working capital at risk. Offering fixed monthly payments, it allows you to forecast budgets accurately now and in the future.

Contract hire

Removing the worry of forklift ownership, this off balance sheet funding source offers easy administration, saving time and – more importantly – money. The fixed monthly forklift rental rate includes maintenance, which eliminates the risk of unexpected bills.

Hire purchase

Upon completion of this flexible payment agreement, you are provided with ultimate ownership of the forklift truck. It maximises tax benefits and spreads the cost over an agreed period.

Finance lease

This is an on balance sheet form of hire financing which spreads the capital cost but excludes maintenance. At the end of the primary period, the agreement may be terminated or continued at a nominal rent.

Special situations

We have an outstanding reputation for ‘thinking outside of the box’. Whatever your circumstances, we can deliver an innovative financial solution to meet your needs. Our customers have enjoyed flexible options such as the ability to exchange or return part of a forklift fleet to meet changing forklift requirements.

The options are almost limitless – Why not speak to us today and find out how Gwent Mechanical Handling can help your business.
