Neil At Moorgate Forklifts

Neil took the helm in 1995. Since then, he’s seen Moorgate successfully expand and relocate to larger premises. Neil’s core concern is customer satisfaction and he believes Moorgate delivers this alongside our flexible approach to doing business.

Combine this with a highly competitive and reliable service, and it’s no wonder we continually receive new work from satisfied customer referrals and why we’re the premier forklift company in West Yorkshire.

Nathan is extremely partial to a spam sandwich – something the rest of the Moorgate Forklifts family find hard to understand.
