Unlike most mainstream manufacturers who try to sell products from a price list, HUBTEX will offer a solution that is tailored to suit the individual needs of a company. Before any mention of products we first need to understand the customers’ business. We find out what they are looking to achieve and also the challenges they are facing. We are often tasked with looking at layouts for a new operation, the type of products to be stored, reducing footprints, improving handling efficiencies and ultimately advising on the best overall solution for them. Once all of these important aspects have been covered, we can then look at building a machine to meet these requirements.

Long service life with genuine HUBTEX parts
The quality of the components used is crucial so that your vehicle can cope with everyday work without restriction. Original spare parts from HUBTEX should always be used. Not only will this help to maintain the value of your vehicle, but also for smooth operation of the device. Accuracy of fit, exact compliance with tolerances and high-quality material composition are the decisive factors. Our mantra is: The original is irreplaceable.
Hire & Used Equipment
In order to offer maximum support for our UK customers, HUBTEX UK holds an extensive fleet of rental Sideloaders and Multidirectional Forklifts available for short, medium or long term hire.
For those customers not wishing to purchase a new machine, buying a refurbished vehicle represents a good alternative. HUBTEX have an extensive range of owned products that are available as general overhauls or fully refurbished in its service workshops. As a result of the wide range of refurbishment possibilities, users benefit from sideloaders that are durable, highly productive. They are perfectly tailored to suit the new application.
Overhaul and refurbishment work always follows a set process. After being assessed by Hubtex experts, the condition of the vehicle is documented in the inspection report and the necessary repair work is determined. Specification requirements are then taken into consideration, and it is here that the modular design of our vehicles is particularly advantageous. We can tailor each used vehicle to the individual requirements of the new application. The machine then undergoes full refurbishment before being thoroughly tested ensuring that the machines can be used effectively for many years to come.
HUBTEX offer a range of financial solutions tailored to your specific business needs through our finance partners.
Whether you are a small user looking for a single truck, or a larger user looking for a fleet of trucks, we have the expertise to help.
Our financial packages include:
Contract Hire – The most popular way of acquiring material handling equipment in the UK. Not only do you receive your sideloader forklift truck(s) for a fixed term agreement of usually 5/7 years, your monthly rental includes maintenance, servicing and repairs and eliminates the risk of unexpected bills, saving you time and money. Contract hire is the most cost-effective, hassle-free and tax-efficient option. Even better, 100% of the rentals paid can be offset against taxable income.
Lease Purchase – This option provides you with the ultimate ownership of the sideloader forklift. You can spread the cost of leasing the forklift over an agreed period. At the start of the agreement the total VAT is paid, along with the deposit. You then make fixed monthly payments over an agreed period of usually 5 / 7 years with all of the interest charges set against taxable income. This asset is put on your balance sheet and offset ‘capital allowances’ against taxable income at a rate of 25% per annum on the reducing balance, whilst small companies can offset 40% of the equipment value within the first year. Unlike a contract hire, maintenance and repairs are not included in the price. This is the best option for you if you’re looking to purchase sideloaders but haven’t got the resources to buy outright.
