Increase efficiency with the right trucks for your operation 


We help businesses of all kinds find the ideal forklift trucks for their sites. Whether it’s a brand new model from HC Forklifts UK vehicle, or a used vehicle, we pair you up with something that suits your operation exactly.


The process starts with a free site survey, carried out by highly skilled engineers, not salespeople. This means we’ll never recommend a product that doesn’t 100% meet your needs or your budget.

I would highly recommend Moorgate Forklifts to anyone wanting professional and personable training. We recently completed our Forklift license there and the treatment we received was second to none.

We’ve worked with Moorgate for 8 years and they ensure we are continually able to operate our normal work patterns.

We use Moorgate for a range of driver training services. They are easier to deal with than larger companies and the training is much more worthwhile. Their customer service is always excellent and they are very accommodating when circumstances change.
