Moffett Vehicle Hire
What Is A Moffett Vehicle?

A Moffett Mounted Vehicle, commonly known as a Moffett, refers to a truck or lorry equipped with a detachable, forklift-like apparatus mounted on its rear. This mounted forklift, known as a Moffett Mounty or truck-mounted forklift, is lightweight, highly maneuverable, and designed to be carried on the back of a trailer or truck, thus not requiring additional transportation.

Benefits Of Moffetts

Versatility and Accessibility: Moffett forklifts can operate on diverse terrains, from rough construction sites to urban roads, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. Their compact size and maneuverability allow them to access tight spaces where traditional forklifts or heavy machinery cannot.

Increased Efficiency: Having a forklift readily available on site eliminates the wait times typically associated with offloading goods, significantly speeding up the delivery and handling process. This efficiency is particularly beneficial in time-sensitive industries.

Cost-Effectiveness: By combining transportation and lifting capabilities, businesses can reduce operational costs. There’s no need to hire separate lifting equipment upon delivery, and the ability to self-load and unload reduces dependency on external equipment and labor.

Enhanced Safety: Moffett forklifts are designed with safety in mind, featuring stable designs and safety mechanisms that reduce the risk of accidents during loading and unloading processes.

Space-Saving Design: The forklift’s compact design and the ability to mount it on the rear of a vehicle save valuable space on the transport vehicle, allowing for more goods to be transported.

Flexibility for Various Industries: Moffett mounted vehicles are invaluable across multiple sectors, including construction, agriculture, recycling, and logistics, offering tailored solutions like specialised forks for specific materials or conditions.
