We Are HGW Lift Trucks

The Forklift Hire Experts

Located in Warrington, Cheshire, HGW is a third-generation, family-run business specialising in material handling solutions. Servicing the North West and beyond, our personal, tailored service mixes honest advice with value for money, whatever the need. From same-day forklift rental to long-term lease agreements, our quality-first approach has kept our clients coming back to us decade after decade. 

The HGW Way 

Forty years is a long time in any business and a lot can change (some of our team had full heads of hair, others weren’t even born). But from our original founder Harry Wood to our current MD Dave (Harry’s son), our philosophy has always remained the same. 

Invest in our people and they’ll invest in our clients. 

Our team plays an integral role in our business. We train and nurture people to become highly skilled engineers, for today, tomorrow and the next 40 years.
