Acclaim Handling; Your forklift and materials handling partner
Acclaim Handling has been a key supplier of forklifts and materials handling equipment since the company was founded in 1982 as a specialist materials handling service provider with a focus on servicing, hire, sales, and leasing. Our motto is, and has always been; Success built on service.
At Acclaim, our core philosophy is ‘Success built on service’. After all, it’s our strong commitment to an outstanding customer experience and unrivalled quality which makes so many of our customers return to us time and again for our products and services. It all began in 1982, when our founder David Woods created Acclaim Handling. He put our customers’ needs at the heart of everything, with a relentless focus on providing the very best quality service at the very best value. Whether a customer needed a single forklift truck or a fully managed materials handling operation, David was committed to the same approach: to provide that customer with exactly what they needed at the very best price.
Today, Acclaim has grown from its original headquarters in Purfleet, Essex, to an award-winning national company with eight regional support centres. We’re proud suppliers to an extensive list of distinguished customers across the UK and Ireland. And above all, David’s legacy of outstanding service, quality and value remains at the heart of all we do.
Whatever your requirement, Acclaim Handling can provide expert advice, comprehensive service and unrivalled expertise.
At Acclaim forklifts, we are committed to promoting equal opportunities in employment. We take pride in that we are an ethically minded company. You can rest assured that your are supporting a business that is giving equal opportunities to its employees and customers.

'I would like to thank you for your efforts and attention to detail when processing our purchase. Your service to us alone is what won you the business against the other 5 companies I approached. Not one other company offered to survey our building and I doubt they would have kept me updated like you have. I will certainly be recommending you and your company to any companies we deal with who may require your services.'
