Over 35 Years of Service

KS Lift Trucks Ltd was founded in 1980, originally trading as Ken Smith Fork Trucks.  We set the benchmark for service and repair of Fork Lift Trucks within the North West and gained an impressive reputation for outstanding customer service – an ethos which we are still fully dedicated to today.

The continued growth of our company throughout the 1980’s naturally led to the initial purchase of 10 counterbalance machines set us on the path of becoming the leading independent hire company in the North West. Further expansion saw development of an expert team of highly skilled engineers, dedicated to providing exemplary service.

Being the leading independent hire company in the North West, combined with an expert team of highly skilled engineers who have unrivalled experience, we are proud that from our humble beginnings we now have a fleet of fully equipped service vehicles, trucks for sale and hire, attachments and materials handling equipment, plus a fleet of various sized transporters. Our stores stock thousands of the highest quality parts from brands that you can trust, and our customer service and support are still the standard to which others aspire.
