PowerForklifts History and Team

Power Forklifts Ltd is a well-established family owned and operated New Zealand forklift company with more than 40 years industry experience. 

Power Forklifts Ltd was originally a forklift hire business catering to the transport industry. Our first formal growth was realised after establishing a service workshop servicing both our hire equipment and forklifts belonging to our clients.

Unlike the larger corporations, we are independently owned. This allows us a great deal of flexibility in meeting the varied needs of our customers. We can provide solutions on specialised equipment and offer a variety of ownership/lease programs such as fully maintained leases, operational leases, fixed price service of the life of the equipment and plus fleet management.

Our professional services include rental, service and sales of forklift trucks.
