Kennards Hire has introduced new-model Toyota forklifts into other parts of its extensive branch network after a successful start in Melbourne.
Dual-powered (LPG and petrol), 42-7FG25 model forklifts, which are road registered and can fit inside a container, can now also be hired from Kennards’ outlets in Sydney and Perth.
Because Kennards has so many locations – more than 90 across Australia – the machines can be accessed quickly, particularly for short-term needs such as emergencies, overload, seasonal requirements and casual hire.
Brisbane-based Hedgehog Events used the new forklifts to erect and dismantle a stand at the Queensland on Show jobs expo, which was staged in Melbourne in August and Sydney in October.
More than 5000 people in each city visited the expo to explore the opportunity of starting a new life up north. Hedgehog Events had responsibility for the Queensland Government stand.
“We use Kennards because they have locations wherever we work throughout Australia, and we know we are going to get good quality equipment,” Hedgehog Events’ managing director Shane Rushbrook said.
Other forklift models are available elsewhere in the Kennards’ network.
