UK Material Handling Association

We’re better than the rest… and we can prove it.

Lots of people can hire or sell you material handling equipment… and all will tell you they’re the best. But few, if any, can back that up with solid evidence.

We can.

Cable Fork Truck Services are pioneering higher standards on a national scale, by being awarded the Certificate of Accreditation by the UK’s leading authority on all aspects of material handling equipment: the UK Material Handling Association (UKMHA).

As members of the UKMHA, Cable Fork Truck Services abides by a stringent Code of Practice. The Code is evidence that we are competent to offer expert advice and specify the most appropriate equipment. It means we deliver robust prompt service support, carried out by fully trained engineers, use high-quality parts and are backed by insurance cover of more than £5m.

Underpinning the Code of Practice is the UKMHA’s rigorous Audit, developed specifically for the material handling industry. It is unlike many accreditations that use an online questionnaire. Instead, a Compliance Manager from the UKMHA undertakes a physical on-site audit, to inspect more than 100 criteria, across areas of business operations including safety, health, environmental and risk management.

UKMHA Compliance Manager Lee Medway carried out the audit, he explains why the process is so important: “The compliance audit is designed to give customers real peace of mind. As an UKMHA audit accredited company, they know that Cable Fork Truck Services has measured up to an industry-led health check, works to standards demonstrably higher than unaccredited companies and removes a potentially weak link of traceability and accountability in their supply chain.”

Why would you settle for anything less?
