"Dear David, I wanted to send you a note to say thank you for all your help with the forklift hire. Your understanding with the date changes due to the lockdowns was so helpful and the two forklift drivers, Andy and Chris, were absolutely fabulous. They were so helpful, professional and complete stars. Their help during this project to clear our yard and move larger artefacts has made it possible for us to care for our museum and collections even more. Once again, thank you "

"'Hiya Rose and David I just wanted to send you a quick email and say a massive “Thank you” for helping us with our event on Monday. The 2 forklift operators you sent were absolutely lovely to work with and did a sterling job of helping us get our enormous ice sculpture set up without any problems at all. It was a very delicate job and they handled it with skill and care. Brilliant service. Thanks again."

Mathew Foster, Creative Director, Glacial Art Ice Sculptors

"Regarding the hire in Canterbury, Kent...... 'Wonderful, thanks ever so much for your assistance/cooperation with our project. Your organization eliminated quite a few headaches for me and is very much appreciated. The truck performed flawlessly, much appreciated!!!!! Thanks again!"

Bradley Johnson, Warehouse Manager (USA), Mann Lake Ltd, Minnesota

"Just a quick thank you for sorting out our lift on Saturday, it all went perfectly to plan. He was actually there before 7 and dropped off in the road adjacent to Weavers Lane, but then did back up into Weavers Lane to collect at 11:30. As it turned out the traffic on Tooley Street was absolutely dead all day (but who’d have thought that!!)"

Chris Clark, CIS services Ltd

"“ Hi Rose / David, just wanted to give feedback on the great service after we hired Peter as forklift driver. He was very helpful, showed great skill and didn’t leave his thinking cap at home in manoeuvring a 2 ton extra long fork lift in very tight spaces in our warehouse! Full brownie points for Peter!!”"

Asif Salahuddin, Operations Director, Evoca Drinks

"David, Just thought I should let you know we were very pleased indeed with the service Bluewater provided on this occasion and in particular your driver who was extremely helpful – probably above and beyond the call of duty. We had road blocks and unforeseen access issues but he took it cheerfully in his stride and everything was safely on site at the end of the day. If you ever need a reference or testimonial I will be pleased to give one and we will certainly use you again in future. Many thanks again."

Mike Barnsley, Managing Director, Ecolyf Ltd

"Morning David Just a quick one to say a big thanks to you for your help and assistance with regards to the Fork lift hire on the London Gateway project.

Ken Smith, Project Manager, Liftmaster Garage Equipment Ltd

"Chris was excellent and we may need him again on Friday/Saturday this week if there is availability? It was a really tight job and the vessels are a tricky load with the height restrictions. He got them in without a scratch"

"Hello David, Thanks very much for your help today. Without your assistance we would really have struggled and I doubt we would have managed to install the equipment. Your staff were very accommodating and helpful and professional. Thanks again, I'll be in touch tomorrow to arrange for your services again to load the crate at the end of the week. kind regards"

Allan Rankin, INITION / London

"I just wanted to email to say thank you for the excellent service I received from Bluewater Forklifts today. It was an awkward job at short notice, because I kept re-arranging the dates, but David Norman was able to find the right forklift for the job and was always extremely helpful and patient. Also , the forklift driver, Chris (I don’t know his surname), couldn’t have been more helpful and skilled. They both made ,what was a tricky job, seem straight forward and simple. Thank you again for your excellent service, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you."

Simon Smith, Stone Carving

"Everything went well this morning and we were very impressed with your company and driver. The driver turned up on time with two forklifts and did a thoroughly fantastic job as it was not a easy thing to do, so please do pass on our thanks to him. We would not hesitate to recommend your company or use you again. Thanks very much."

Sheree Green, Colosseum Catering Equipment Ltd

"When it comes to shifting one and a half tonne of changing room, its all hands to the pump, and its not a laughing matter. Well done, me, Trevor, Steven, the team from Jetyres next door, Chris (our inspired forklift truck driver), and the lorry/ high Ab controller, whose name escapes me. Thanks to Bluewater Forklift Hire for a super, early to arrive , great helpful driver and forklift truck. "

Manager, CrossFit London

"Good Afternoon David, I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks to say what a professional and efficient service you have provided us with today. I found your booking system and customer service easy to use and the driver Chris today was well trained, courteous and really helpful. A real pleasure to work with. We will definitely be using your services again in the future should we ever have need for a forklift again."

Useful forklift facts and useful tips

Delivering your Hired Forklift

It is very important that there is somewhere to park the lorry (ie particularly in London) where access can be a problem, red routes etc. We can get round it by providing a second driver, ie one to take the lorry away while the forklift driver does the job.
