Purchase vs Rent: Top Reasons to Rent a Forklift

  1. When renting a forklift, you only pay for what you use – your rental cost is based on how many days you expect to use it, a determined amount of time. When you buy a forklift you pay for 100 percent of the equipment whether you use it all day every day, or just an hour per week.
  2. Whether long or short term renting – a few days, or a full season – renting eliminates the costs of maintenance and depreciation. Norlift rents newer model, well-maintained forklifts and construction equipment, so you never have to worry about reliability.
  3. Rental payments may be tax-deductible – rental payments are usually considered an operating expense and may reduce your tax liability. (Consult your accountant/tax professional)
  4. You can generate cash by selling seldom-used equipment – many operations keep extra equipment on hand in case of breakdowns or to meet seasonal needs. Why not rent instead? Renting allows you to convert infrequently used equipment into cash. It also reduces the need for permanent storage space for the forklift and eliminates maintenance costs.
  5. Maximize your available credit – when you finance equipment, it can reduce your ability to borrow. Renting keeps your credit line clear, frees up cash flow, and reduces overhead.
  6. The forklift experts at Norlift are happy to assist you in this decision making process. Our sales consultants can provide you with the information and the options you need to make the best decision for your company.

Pallet Rack Repair Made Easy

Did you know it’s often possible to repair a damaged upright without dismantling your racking system?

It’s important to have safe and secure racking in your workplace.  As independent racking experts, Norlift can help find problem areas, as well as identify racking that is damaged and needs to be replaced.  After inspecting the racking we can create a plan to replace any damaged upright or beam, or possibly repair the uprights with a repair kit.  We then put together a quote for the product and labor for our subcontractor to come in and make your racking safer for you, your employees and your customers. 

PALLET RACK REPAIR with WorldRev® products.  Norlift now offers rack repair kits for uprights where we can come in, cut the bottom portion of your uprights out and put in a prefabricated piece making your upright secure, strong and safe once again.  The most common rack damage is found on the front column of the pallet rack frame due to forklift impact.  Additional damage to the reinforcing horizontal and diagonal struts is also likely whenever column damage occurs.  Keep your warehouse safe with WorldRev® from Worldwide Material Handling and Norlift.

One final detail that we look at regarding racking, is weight capacity signs – Norlift now stocks magnetic capacity labels for all of our new racking beam capacities, and we can help you identify and properly label the weight capacities of your racking.

Cantilever Racking

Structural Cantilever

Cantilever Racking is a great solution for storing raw materials or completed pieces in warehouse and industrial manufacturing settings, indoors or outdoors. The ability to customize the racking allows you to store a broad range of products in many different lengths, weights and sizes, such as steel tubing, lumber to long skids of furniture or rolls of fabric. Cantilever load bearing arms are attached and anchored to the steel upright, and are easily adjustable allowing settings of different levels. Bracing between uprights allows you to maximize your layout space and number of arms that support your material, making long continuous runs possible. At Norlift we have cantilever available in both roll form and structural style – new and used.

Roll Form Cantilever

Advantages to Cantilever Racking

• Ability to store heavy loads of long materials
• Arms allow for easy access and material picking
• Desired number of arm levels and vertical space between is completely customizable
• Fully customizable
