Howard Handling has over 25 years’ experience of supplying pallet trucks, lifters and handlers to many different industry sectors. Whatever your business, we can say with confidence that good quality handling equipment, backed up with regular servicing, is the cheapest way to run your fleet.

But good quality equipment isn’t purchased cheaply and can represent a significant financial outlay to your business, particularly if multiple handlers are needed.

Finance Options

However large or small your business needs, Howard Handling can offer the right handling equipment, with finance options to suit your requirements.

Contract Hire

Rental gives you the handling equipment you want, without the need to purchase it. An off-balance sheet option, contract hire offers many budget and tax advantages. Benefits include minimal capital outlay and a fixed rental cost that covers equipment finance plus ongoing maintenance. Contract hire leaves you to focus on your business, while we manage your equipment.

Lease Purchase

Also known as Hire Purchase, Lease Purchase allows you to finance your equipment purchases over an agreed length of time. Lease Purchase helps to spread the cost of buying your equipment - and at the end of the Lease Purchase term, you own the equipment outright.

Total Management, Maximum Flexibility

When it comes to managing your fleet, our finance options offer maximum flexibility. Our Preventative Maintenance Plans can complement your finance plan, providing total after-sales fleet management at a fixed monthly cost.

Alternatively you can specify your service & maintenance intervals, a weekly, monthly or annual maintenance budget amount, and the parts, labour and other items that you wish to budget for.

Feel free to contact us to discuss your likely maintenance costs and finance options, based on your needs and our years of experience.
