Material Handling Equipment Sales, Service, Parts & Rentals




Eastern Lift Truck Company, Inc. was founded in 1971 with a singular but powerful goal:  become the best material handling equipment service provider in the industry!

Today, more than 40 years since our founding, we are proud to be recognized as one of the premier service providers in the Northeast and one of the most successful dealerships in the United States.

Since becoming a Yale dealer in 1996, Eastern Lift Truck Company has often been recognized as a "Yale Dealer of Excellence," Yale's most prestigious dealer recognition including an impressive streak of consecutive years dating back to 2001.
