About Eastern Lift Truck Co.

Eastern Lift Truck Co. is a family-owned business. Our core values include loyalty, honesty, respect, and pride in our work. We pursue excellence in all that we do and strive to keep our core values front and center. These values define us and what it means to be a good service provider to our customers.   

Best known as a full-service, authorized Hyster and Yale forklift dealership, we also partner with dozens of other excellent equipment manufacturers to offer a diverse range of material handling products and services. Eastern Lift Truck Co. offers just about anything you may find inside of a warehouse distribution center. Our customers rely on us for loading dock and door equipment, warehouse design, racking, conveyors, autonomous mobile robots, trash compactors, cardboard balers, terminal tractors, mobile railcar movers, and more.

In recent years, the Company has expanded into commercial utility task vehicles and low-speed electric vehicles for both business and consumer usage.

Perhaps most importantly, we offer aftermarket care (parts and service support) for everything we sell. We have a large rental fleet of forklifts and aerial lifts, fleet management, financing for new and used equipment, and a variety of operator and safety training programs.

Eastern Lift Truck Co. is most proud of its unparalleled reputation for quality service. More than half of our dedicated 1200+ employees are talented service technicians. We operate 18 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and foster a great work environment that encourages all team members to work together to provide the best customer service around. 

The future continues to bring new challenges to everyone as technology broadens the scope of how we all do business. As leaders in the material handling industry, it is our steadfast commitment to continue to provide the exceptional service and products our customers have come to expect of us for more than 50 years.  Anticipating the needs of our customers is always in the forefront of our mind and we look forward to defining our futures together.
