We take great pride in our customer service and we are always keen to hear your feedback to help us improve

Over the years, we have bought many Manitous from Northern Lift Trucks ranging from 6m to 18m telehandlers and most recently the MSI Counter Balance Forklifts. With 13 Manitous in our current hire fleet it’s safe to say that for us they are the ‘go to’ machines. Manitou builds a quality machine that does exactly what we need it to. They hold their money well when it comes time to trade them in & are easily maintained. In terms of service & after sales support Northern Lift Trucks cannot be faulted. They stock a wide range of parts & any not in stock arrive with next day delivery, keeping our down time to a minimum. Mervyn & the guys in the service workshop bend over backwards anytime we need anything, they provide an excellent service.

We recently purchased two new Hyundai R25s & two new R27s, taking our fleet of Hyundai mini diggers up to 5 machines. We have had excellent feedback on these machines. They are well priced in the market & Hyundai Finance offers competitive rates. I know when I buy a machine from Brian McCartan at Northern Lift Trucks that it will be a quality machine & that we will get the on-going service we desire.

Richard your Salesman was very efficient. He took time to explain all about the capabilities of the machine and called out to the farm to see that we were satisfied and explained about fluids and greasing etc

I looked at lots of other makes of machines but I felt that the Manitou was the best value for money. The Aftersales service from Northern Lift has been excellent so far!!

We have had 4 successive Manitou's on our farm MLT627 & MLT630 as these models suit some of our awkward buildings. The Sales and backup from Northern Lift Trucks is excellent!!
