While we were doing a bit of spring cleaning in the Moorgate office, we recently came across these old photographs of the site back in the late 80s. And it got us thinking about how long we’ve been supplying the people of Yorkshire with forklift trucks….

30+ years’ expertise

Founded back in 1987 by Managing Director, Neil Brook, Moorgate Forklifts Ltd has since forged a proven track record in the materials-handling industry. For more than 31 years, we’ve been:

  • Supplying new and used forklift and pallet trucks from leading manufacturers, including Nexen, Caterpillar, Toyota and Samuk.
  • Servicing, rebuilding and repairing forklifts and pallet trucks.
  • Carrying out on-site breakdown and repairs.
  • Leasing new and used forklift vehicles to businesses on a short and long-term basis.
  • Conducting on and off-site forklift driver training.
  • Providing a friendly, welcoming service!

What does our experience mean?

More than simply a badge of honour, we believe a business’ experience is testament to their expertise and understanding of their industry. Take us, for instance, it’s fair to say we’ve learnt a thing or two over the last three decades!

In fact, it’s our experience that’s enabled us to grow as a team and build upon our extensive knowledge of the vehicles we supply. This has helped us to:

  • Understand how to recommend the best value solution for each customer – even if it might not be what they initially thought they needed!
  • Get to know the vehicles we work with inside out and watch the technology progress over time. We’ve seen hundreds of machines come and go. We also know a solid piece of engineering when we see one.
  • Offer insightful training to forklift operators and our own team members. Teaching practical skills to new forklift drivers and engineers is a fantastic part of the job.
