Telehandler Hire FAQs

How much does it cost to rent a JCB telehandler?
The cost of hiring a JCB telehandler depends on the amount of time you need it for. For a detailed quote, tailored to your specific requirements, fill in our quick form and we’ll give you a call back.
Can I drive a telehandler on a car licence?
Being able to drive a telehandler on a car licence depends on the telehandler’s weight and your age:
  • Telehandlers under 3.5 tonnes: Yes, you can drive them with a valid car licence (Category B) if you're at least 17 years old.
  • Telehandlers between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes: You'll need a car licence and be at least 18 years old.
  • Telehandlers over 7.5 tonnes: You'll require a Category C licence, typically obtained through professional training, and be at least 21 years old.
Remember, a car licence alone doesn't grant you permission to operate a telehandler. Completing a specific telehandler training course and obtaining a certificate is mandatory for safe and legal operation, regardless of the vehicle's weight.
How much is a telehandler course?
Telehandler training course costs vary depending on the type of course, its duration, and the provider. Generally, expect to pay anywhere between £200 and £500 for a basic course covering legal requirements, operation basics, and safety procedures. More advanced courses with practical training on various telehandler models can cost upwards of £1,000.
How much does a new telehandler cost?
New telehandler prices also range widely based on size, capacity, features, and brand. Here's a rough estimate:
  • Compact models (under 3.5 tonnes): £30,000 - £50,000
  • Medium-duty models (3.5 - 7.5 tonnes): £50,000 - £100,000
  • Heavy-duty models (over 7.5 tonnes): £100,000+
We understand that this cost can be widely outside of project budgets. That’s why we’re dedicated to offering affordable JCB telehandler hire across the UK and Ireland. Get in touch today for a detailed quote.
How long can I hire a telehandler for?
You can hire out our telehandlers for anywhere from a day to over 3 weeks. Simply give us a call and we’ll make sure you have the equipment you need, when you need it.
