Telehandler Hire FAQs

Your Questions, Answered.

Yes, a telehandler is capable of lifting containers, but it will depend on the size and weight of the container, as well as the capabilities of the telehandler. It's important to carefully consider the weight and size of the load and to ensure that the telehandler is properly configured and equipped to handle the load safely.

In the UK, it is required to have a lift plan for any crane or telehandler operation, including identifying the type of equipment to be used, the maximum load to be lifted, the location of the lift, and any other factors that may impact the safety of the operation.

To drive a telehandler in the UK, individuals must have a valid telehandler operator's licence, which typically requires completing an approved training program and passing a certification exam. We can provide a licenced operator if needed.

Telehandlers are typically driven on roads for short distances to move from one job site to another. However, to drive a telehandler on the road in the UK, it must comply with the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 and be equipped with lights, reflectors, and other safety features. You can find everything you need in our Telehandler Accessories section.
