Why Howard Handling

With so many forklift truck suppliers and handling equipment catalogues around, what makes Howard Handling the best choice for you?

We Are Not A Manufacturer

Howard Handling is independent, which means that we aren’t restricted in the products that we can sell, service or recommend. We are free to offer you the best equipment for your particular needs - and can easily change the product or service, if your handling application changes. Our independent status also means that we can service and repair many different makes and models of pallet trucks & lifters.

We Never Put A Healthy Truck Down!

Howard Handling’s primary business is the service and maintenance of pallet trucks, lifters and other pedestrian handling equipment – regardless of where you purchased them. If you have equipment that is still safe and cost effective to use, we will NEVER try to sell you a replacement.

We Solve The Handling Problems That Catalogues & Forklift Companies Won’t

Howard Handling specialises in the supply, service and repair of pallet trucks, lifters and other pedestrianised materials handling equipment. Because we are engineers, we are happy to modify your existing equipment, or supply custom equipment to solve a handling problem that can’t be properly solved with a standard machine. We can make adjustments to standard equipment to make them more user friendly or economical for your handling application. We are happy to look at your handling issue and offer independent, friendly, no obligation advice.

We Provide Quality Local Service

Howard Handling is part of a National Maintenance Network. By far the biggest advantage of this arrangement is that our customers get a quality of customer service, fast response and attention to detail that is usually only found when working with a small local company. We believe that our National Maintenance Network gives our customers the best of both worlds: high quality local service that stretches across the UK.

Satisfied Customers Since 1995

Since 1995, Howard Handling has been supplying its customers with high quality products and service. Starting life as a small local servicer of hand pallet trucks, our business has grown to include the sale, service, repair and rental of manual & powered pallet trucks and handling equipment throughout the UK. Our continued growth is a testament to our ability to offer our customers good service at a fair price.
