3 Things You Should Know Before You Engage Manitou Hire Services
Do You Need A Telehandler To Start?
Before you contact hire services, you want to be sure you’re hiring the “right” machine. So, what do you need? Is it a forklift or a telehandler?
Will you be moving the equipment only forward and backwards or in varied directions? Do you prefer a lift that is perfect for indoor activities over outdoor?
If what you need is to move an item within a warehouse only back and forth, forklifts are perfect. That aside, telehandlers are the best and most flexible fit of the two options.
However, note that the decision making doesn’t stop at just choosing a Manitou telehandler. You also have to ask which kind meets your needs.
What Telehandler Should You Pick?
The bulk of the brainstorming you will do lies in this section. So, to start, consider the height and weight of the load you’re lifting.
Will the machine be working in tight spaces? How about the terrains? About the load, how heavy is it? More importantly, how high are you lifting the said item?
In all, note that whatever telehandler you pick must match your load for weight and height. Else, you risk injury and property damage.
That said, here is a straightforward guide to help you choose better from the various Manitou telehandlers on the market:

Ask For The Additional Services
Once you identify the machine that fits your requirements, you need to confirm the other services the hirer offers. For a start, will you need additional insurance? How about anti-sway protection?
Besides the basics, will you be driving the machine? Do you have the license to do so? Or does the hire service provider have drivers to help you?
Once you get answers to those questions, you are good to hire your Manitou telehandlers. We hope this piece has been helpful!
