Avis Forklift Franschhoek. A Comprehensive Forklift Service. Lifting Service To Greater Heights.

Franschhoek Business


Avis Forklift Centre was established in 1970, and initially started with 2 forklifts in the rental fleet. The first field service vehicle was a split screen Kombi probably better suited to surfer dudes!

With over 40 years’ experience Avis Forklift Centre and Rental is well recognised as a pioneer in the forklift rental industry. Our aim is to provide an excellent service in forklift rental, sales & service.

Workshop & Service Centre
At Avis Forklift Centre we have dedicated and fully trained technicians who undertake all the maintainance of the Short and Long term rentals.

Our technical team and parts department provide all neccessary parts and specialised tooling equipment to enable them to handle any maintenance issues from routine services through to major engine overhauls.

On Site Servicing
In addition to our Franschhoek centrally located workshop we have highly trained and skilled technicians with a fully fitted service vehicle as mobile workshop. Our field service technician is therefore able to provide full preventative maintenance on location as to ensure work readiness, which improves client productivity and profitability by cutting to an absolute minimum forklift operational down time.

At Avis Forklift Centre we are able to provide a comprehensive forklift rental service encompassing many different makes of forklifts, as well as being one of the only Forklift Rental companies to offer forklift sizes from 1.5 tons in capacity to our largest unit that has a 13 ton capacity.

Rough Terrain Forklifts
Has it ever happened to that while moving your load your forklift has got stuck either on loose sand and dirt or in mud? Well if it has then maybe you should consider the long term rental of a rough terrain forklift. A rough terrain is a specialised forklift that is specifically built to deal with areas/surfaces that are not level or even, where the road/travelling surface is not constant.
