Over 26 years ACCESS MECHANICAL HANDLING has grown into Scotland’s leading materials handling and logistics partner for industry. Established in 1986 we have been providing our customers with superlative service, reliability, value and efficiency ever since. Our main area of expertise is forklifts. This includes forklifts sales, forklifts service and fork lift hire. We are also leading suppliers of fork truck attachments.  That’s not all. We are also Scotland’s market leaders in the supply of Moffett truck-mounted forklifts and rough terrain fork lift trucks,  as well as pallet inverters, scissor lifts and loading bay equipment. Clients range across Scotland including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth, Inverness and Aberdeen.

ACCESS MECHANICAL HANDLING was founded by Harry Borthwick in 1986. Harry has over fifty years’ experience in forklifts and material handling. This includes time spent in the US, 8 years specializing in fork truck attachments and time spent with a company who had expertise in all aspects of customised material handling products. Harry still holds an advisory role with the company.

At Access, we advise in all aspects of materials handling with a team of trained advisors who have over 100 years of expertise between them. Our forklift service department, provided by a highly skilled customer support team, is second to none and superior to many.

Here at AMH we love problem solving in all aspects of the material handling business. We have developed automated warehousing systems for multinational companies but we are equally happy to supply a simple hand pallet truck to an independent trader.  No job is too big or too small, so give us a call on 01698 745859. We’re here to help.

Access Mechanical Handling’s offices and workshop are situated in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, with easy access to the M74 and M8 motorways. From there it is easy for us to reach anywhere in Scotland, especially Glasgow and Edinburgh. This enables us to have built up one of the best forklift hire fleets in Central Scotland. Access Mechanical Handling can provide cost-effective solutions to your forklift and  handling needs, so whether you are looking to add to your fork lift truck fleet, thinking to hire a forklift for a short while or even simply want to enquire about  a hand pallet truck, we will be happy to help.  If you’re looking for Scotland’s  experts in forklifts call us on 01698 745859 or drop us an email on
