FAQs

 

  • What types of forklifts are used in warehouses?
    • Forklifts are an indispensable piece of equipment for warehouse work, and there are many types to choose from, depending on your specific needs. Warehouse forklifts are the most recognizable with a golf cart-size body and two fork tongs sticking out of the front that are used to lift between one and five tons. Sideloaders are similar to the warehouse forklift, but the lift unloads objects on its side, making it a great choice for heavy, bulky or long items like lumber or pipes. Counterbalance forklifts have the weight in the back to "counterbalance" the weight of the load. Three wheeled versions make it easy to operate these lifts and make sharp turns. Pallet jacks, walkie stackers, order pickers and reach fork trucks are all great options for navigating narrow warehouse aisles, allowing the operator to lift and lower pallets to various heights.
  • How high can a warehouse forklift go?
    • United Rentals has a wide selection of warehouse forklifts for rent with maximum lift heights around 20' to 23' and load capacities up to 50,000 lb. For short lifts, we also provide pallet jacks for rent with a maximum lift height around 7.5".
  • What forklift capacity do I need?
    • The maximum forklift capacity needed depends on the application and size of the load. Every forklift includes a plate required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that states the maximum load capacity. Before you make a decision, determine the dimensions and weight of your heaviest load, how high you need to lift the load, how many hours you need to use the lift, and what the environment is like where you will use the lift. United Rentals provides forklifts for rent with load capacities up to 50,000 lb.
