What is the Carer Advantage? We have almost 40 years of experience in designing, developing and making large-capacity electric forklift trucks. We offer products that are a valid alternative to internal combustion forklifts. Our forklifts offer exceptional performance and considerable savings in overall running costs. They are also a great step in helping customers reduce their carbon foot print.
In the niche market of high capacity materials handling, most manufacturers only offer internal combustion options. Carer is one of the very few companies that exclusively offer high capacity electric forklifts. We also provide custom electric forklift options for special applications.
