Everything you need to know about telehandler hire

At Tiger Plant, we offer expert advice and guidance when it comes to the sale and hire of plant machinery. If you have ever had questions about telehandler hire, we are here to explain the process. Telehandlers are designed to meet the challenges of the building site due to their highly versatile nature. With a variety of sizes and models available to purchase or hire, they are also known as a boom lift, telescopic handler or forklift.

How much does telehandler hire cost?

The price of telehandler hire depends on several factors. The first is the kind of forklift you choose (counterbalance forklift or telehandler), the second is on the size and maximum lift height and weight, and the third is how long you are going to be hiring your telehandler for.


Telehandlers tend to cost slightly more than forklifts, due to their larger size. However, the main consideration should be the amount of time you are hiring. If you will be hiring for longer periods, it will cost in the region of £90 a week. If you hire over a short period, costs will be slightly higher.


Do I need to hire a telehandler with an operator?

If you have an experienced telehandler driver on your team, then you don’t need to hire an operator for your vehicle. However, if you don’t have someone with experience, it is recommended that you hire an operator for your vehicle.


Hiring an operator is a fantastic solution for those hiring a telehandler for a short period of time. An operator has experience with the vehicle and can quickly and reliably manoeuvre around the site and get the job done.

Can I hire a telehandler driver with Tiger Plant?

At Tiger Plant, we offer operator hire services for a range of machines. Our drivers are C.P.C.S qualified excavators, dumper truck and forklift operators, and have years of experience. Reliable and trustworthy, they ensure that your job will be done safely and properly. Therefore, you can rest easy knowing that you will have fewer problems in the future.


Is there a telehandler hire available near me?

If you are in Swindon or the surrounding area, you can trust Tiger Plant to deliver a varied fleet of plant machinery to suit any job, big or small. We accommodate your requirements and provide you with exceptional service, every time.




What are the different types of telehandlers I can hire?

We have eight different types of telehandlers ranging from 5m to 17m in size. The smaller the telehandler the more compact, and the easier it is to get on sites that are hard to access. Larger telehandlers have impressive lift heights and are more robust for harder jobs.


We guide you throughout the process to ensure that you get the best machine for the job. Our team of professionals are always happy to help and will answer any questions you have about the plant hire process.
