Independent Provider of Material Handling

Dawsongroup MH is proud to be 100% independent - we work with a variety of premium providers of material handling and attachments. This allows us to recommend a package tailored to meet your specific requirements. Our aim is to provide a cost-effective, efficient solution every time with built-in flexibility should your needs change over the contract period.

Service and Maintenance

We regard your care and support as critical to a successful relationship, and that’s why our standard hire agreement covers all elements of service and maintenance.  There is no call out charge for breakdowns whether this is down to mechanical fault or accident damage. We hold an extensive parts inventory and where we don’t hold an item in stock we are able to source 95% of all parts within 24 hours - our aim is to ensure your equipment is always available minimising downtime.

Routine maintenance is scheduled every 500 hours of work, our service team will liaise with you to arrange a mutually convenient time for works to be undertaken, and any rechargeable work required will be advised before the work is undertaken - ensuring you are fully in control of costs.

  • No Hidden Extras: all prices are inclusive of call-out, parts and labour
  • No Inflated Repair Bills: all consumables and parts are competitively sourced
  • No Surprises: work will only commence once approved and instructed by you




All of the equipment provided by Dawsongroup MH is owned by the business, we do not use third party funding with a side maintenance contract. You will have one simple agreement detailing the equipment and the parameters (working hours, the inclusion of tyres, attachments, excess hour charge etc.) of the contract allowing us the flexibility to change either the parameters or the equipment should your working requirements change during the contract period. Our aim is to ensure you always have the right equipment on site and you’re not stuck with equipment you've outgrown.

Consultative approach

Our objective is to understand the unique requirements of your business and your site operations. As an independent supplier we can look at the open market to recommend a bespoke package of equipment and attachments, we are not limited to a product range or pre-defined solution. Whether you’re looking for a simple single machine or multiple asset solutions with the latest telematics reporting suite we have a solution.

Funding Options 

Our standard hire agreement is fully inclusive of service and maintenance whether you need the equipment for a week or 10 years. You will have one simple agreement detailing the equipment and contract parameters (terms and conditions enclosed) and built-in flexibility.

Additionally, we can arrange a rent to buy facility combining the purchase of equipment over a predetermined contract period with the addition of a service package. We are also able to arrange to hire purchase and finance lease through our sister company LHE finance where this is required.        

New or Existing Fleet

As an independent supplier, we have access to a wide variety of material handling equipment from the humble pallet truck through to complex narrow aisle equipment, access platforms, Portaloaders and everything between. We are also able to provide reconditioned Existing stock from our fleet with full-service provenance; this equipment is provided on the same full maintenance contract providing a credible cost-effective alternative to new equipment.
