Compass Forklift Trucks

We are a local family firm, with our Head Office in Launceston, with 7 engineers covering Somerset, Devon and Cornwall – offering servicing, sales and hire for all types of forklift trucks and materials handling equipment.

We have been established for 12 years now and are pleased to say that we are one of the South West’s main dealers and authorised supplier of spare parts for both TCM by Unicarriers and Kelvin, we are also approved dealers for supply, maintenance and parts for Agrimac rough terrain 4 x 4 forklifts, and for supply, maintenance and parts for Dulevo, international manufacturers of industrial cleaning equipment specialising in mechanical sweepers and cleaners. Our policy is to supply a consistently high quality service and product and we have a proven successful track record, of which we are extremely proud.

Our engineers have a wide range of experience within the forklift industry including such manufacturers as Daewoo (Doosan), Linde, Samuk, OM, Caterpillar, Mitsubishi, Moffet, Combilift, Still, Kelvin, TCM and many more, and we are confident that we are able to deal with all manner of issues, big or small.

We pride ourselves on remaining competitive and our standard service charges start at £75.00 (for a counterbalance forklift truck) plus parts and oils, with our hourly labour charge being £37.50. We do not charge for call outs, just our hourly rate applies. All our charges are subject to VAT.

We try to accommodate all of our customers needs and can specifically tailor a servicing schedule for your requirements. We recognise that it is in our customers’ interests to set up a regular ongoing facility in order that the machines remain maintained in order to minimise breakdowns. In addition we are LOLER accredited and can carry out Thorough Examination safety checks and certificates (the mandatory annual safety inspection).The cost per truck for this inspection is £100 plus VAT. Of course we supply new or used machines to buy or hire and all relevant parts too!
