Our History

PLP Lift Trucks began in 1972. Over the past five decades we have grown to become a leading supplier of materials handling equipment to business across the UK. We have built our business by offering personal service to every customer, however large their business. We don’t believe in call centres. When you call PLP Lift Trucks you will always deal directly with a knowledgeable member of our team.

Our purpose built facility in Dinnington, Sheffield, is home to our team of fully qualified service engineers providing servicing, Thorough Examinations (LOLER 98 and PUWER 98) and refurbishments and repairs. Our workshop engineers are supported by an experienced team of mobile service engineers, providing on-site servicing and repairs to our customers. We understand that any downtime is not only impacting on your bottom line but also impacting your hard earned reputation. We aim to provide a four hour response time and our mobile service engineers carry a the most common consumable parts on their vans. This allows us to fix most faults in one visit. In more complicated breakdowns our service engineers can order parts directly from Cesab UK and arrange next day delivery direct to your premises.

PLP Lift Trucks also hosts the Cesab Materials handling UK Training Centre. We provide training to everyone from complete novices through to the most experienced operators.

As an accredited member of the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA), you are assured that our professionalism and integrity is to the highest level.

We are an authorised Cesab dealer offering a complete range of materials handling equipment and genuine parts. Many of our customers operate mixed fleets and we provide all makes and models servicing. Our engineers are particularly experienced with Mitsubishi forklifts and we offer a range of Mitsubishi forklifts as part of our hire fleet, as well as offering used Mitsubishi forklifts for sale.
