Refurbishment process

We break down each forklift and rebuild them to be as good as new. Our refurbished forklifts undergo the following procedure.

Before refurbishment

Each forklift is broken down and completely refurbished to be as good as new. View the process of creating an as good as new forklift.


The unit will be stripped, all major components and perishable parts are removed and replaced. This includes tyres where applicable. We refurbish all Forklift types, be they petrol, diesel or LP Gas engines. Our refurbished Forklifts are quite literally as good as new and have all been thoroughly load tested as well as engine reconditioning fully tested.

We understand the high cost of maintaining a single forklift or a fleet of forklifts and at McKlift, we are committed to providing a refurbished Forklift that will perform as well as a brand new one. Our preference is Toyota Forklifts but we will refurbish and make available any forklift brand.
