How much does a forklift in Houston cost?
When trying to determine the cost of a forklift, there are many factors to consider. First and foremost, used forklifts tend to cost less than new forklifts. Second, high-capacity forklifts often cost more than units with lower capacities or fewer features. Finally, electric models cost more than LPG or diesel units initially but provide substantial cost savings over time. These factors make it impossible to declare a flat cost for forklifts.

Forklifts, also known as lift trucks and industrial trucks, were invented in the early 20th century. Starting as platforms for moving luggage, forklifts were eventually transformed into reliable material handling machines. Their utilization completely changed the layout of warehouses and industrial facilities, as they now needed to accommodate a forklift. As a result, warehouses started to utilize high shelves and vertical storage instead of horizontal storage. As forklifts began to increase in power and lift heights, safety features such as load backrests and overhead guards were incorporated.
This increase in power also led to forklifts being utilized in operations outside of warehousing such as construction, lumber, mining, and other high-demand applications. Today, forklifts are one of the most highly-utilized pieces of equipment on any job site. With one million units sold worldwide every year, they are the highest-selling type of material handling equipment. Forklifts are available in a variety of configurations ranging from compact electric models to large and powerful diesel units. With several models now offering lift capacities over 100,000 lbs, forklifts can handle extremely heavy materials with ease.
