Hire & Rental

Long Term Hire/Short Term Hire/Rental

Northern Materials Handling offer flexibility and solutions to suit your business’s logistics and material handling needs. Our Short or Long Term Hire or Rental Plans mean that spikes or sudden increases in demand for you can be supported by additional handling equipment from our extensive hire fleet. For these contracts Northern Materials Handling can supply high quality forklifts and warehousing equipment from our extensive rental fleet.

Short term hire provides a fast and flexible source of mainstream equipment without the need to purchase or commit long term, ideal for emergency hire or to cater for an upturn or seasonal peak in business.

For longer terms, we have a range of fully inclusive rental packages that include parts and labour, and with rates fixed for the duration, all costs are known, making it ideal for planning and budgeting purposes.

All our rental trucks are prepared to the highest standard in our main workshop in Ballymoney.

Ideal situations for short term hire are:


  • Start-up operations
  • Breakdown cover
  • Short term contracting
  • Seasonal peaks
  • Change in circumstances
