Forklift Freaky Freight - Strange things found on a forklift.

We spend much of our time educating and advising people of the importance of pre-use checks of their forklift trucks. As a result we have come across some pretty bizarre scenarios involving the trucks and the loads that they carry.

Below are some of our favourite shots of ‘peculiar’ items that have been spotted in transit and we are looking for more. If you have been asked to move something out of the ordinary why not take a snapshot and send it to us via one of our following outlets:

There are a number of ‘dinosaurs' on forklifts

but I think the following is my favourite of the many to view. Imagine if you bumped into this T-Rex as it moved around the corner!

The next two were sent to us via @PlantHire_HE on Twitter (although not one of their own). I like the fact the T-Rex has been blindfolded so as not to scare him during transit.

The fact we have so many dinosaurs on forklifts suggest they maybe aren’t the strangest thing to find at the end of your forks so here are a few more that we’ve come across, ranging from the sublime (in the form one of the world’s greatest ever golfers) to the ridiculous (a knitted yellow telephone box):

This one is the centre section of a Horten 229 V3 Bat-Wing Ship

And finally (for now), surely this wins the award for the strangest thing to be found on a forklift? It’s not every day you see a knitted yellow BT telephone artbox on his way to Trafalgar Square is it?

And so it’s over to you – if you have any photos of odd things you’ve lifted on your forklift (keep them clean and in good taste please). Fire them over to us and we’ll add them to the blog.

In the meantime for all you forklift owners and drivers, don’t forget to check our website for everything you need to carry out your pre-use checks to ensure your truck is in good working condition.
