About Us

Power Forklifts Ltd is a well established business which has been trading in Auckland since 1975, specialising in rental, service and sales of forklift trucks. Power Forklifts Ltd was originally a forklift hire business catering to the transport industry. Our first formal growth was realised after establishing a service workshop servicing both our hire equipment and forklifts belonging to our clients.


Unlike the larger corporations, we are independently owned. This allows us a great deal of flexibility in meeting the varied needs of our customers. We can provide solutions on specialised equipment and offer a variety of ownership/lease programs such as fully maintained leases, operational leases, fixed price service of the life of the equipment and plus fleet management.


We are New Zealand’s leading Importers of Combilift Multidirectional and Side-loader forklifts.


All our service technicians are qualified professional mechanics and have a combined industrial experience of 132 years. Our service schedule is health and safety approved. A regular service of your machinery will ensure early detection of any possible mechanical failure. Get one of our service plans in place for your forklift(s) and avoid costly production down time.  With our core business in the service sector, our objective is to minimise downtime and ensure efficient equipment utilisation. We record all costs of parts and labour against individual machines.  We have 12 fully equipped mobile service vans operating in Auckland and the North Island to give our customer base a competitive response time for all breakdowns on site and service for all makes and models of forklifts.
