Time and money, there never seems to be enough of both right? But there are some things you can do to help your business use them both more effectively. As an example, hiring a forklift operator can save you a lot of time and… you guessed it money too!

At Tough Yakka, we understand the pressures you are under and that you need something done on time and within budget. We are the labour-hire experts in Brisbane and we would love to help make your work life a little easier.

Here are some key reasons to hire a professional forklift operator for your next job.


Time is money. So don’t waste your precious time trying to either operate the forklift (badly) or find a coworker who says he can drive it, no problems. (Trust us there will be problems.)

Give Tough Yakka a call and hire a forklift operator to get your job done safely and efficiently. We can quickly organise an experienced forklift driver to be at your place before you can stall the forklift for the fifth time.

By hiring a professional, you can get your job done right the first time. Time won’t be wasted by amateurs taking three -times the time of an expert or even worse the job not getting done at all. Don’t be the guy who tries to do everything himself, get the pros in and get your task completed correctly.


Nothing should come before the safety of yourself and your employees. Not only is a forklift driver operating a potentially dangerous vehicle, but they can also do some serious damage to other staff members if not careful.
Any injury to a staff member will cost you time and money. Plus, the insurance rates for your business could be raised due to a single forklift accident.
It’s not just people a forklift can damage, but also your precious cargo and stock. One mistake could cost you thousands in lost consumables and serious time delays.
You can remove a lot of these risks by hiring a forklift operator for the job. An experienced driver will be aware of the dangers and avoid making basic mistakes while operating the forklift.

Use The Equipment Correctly

A professional forklift operator will take care of your forklift as if it’s their own. This expertise can save your business heaps of money in repairs and maintenance costs.
An inexperienced driver can quickly damage, dent and destroy your forklift through reckless driving.
Minimise the risk of having to replace or repair your forklift by hiring someone who knows what they’re doing.


Another key reason to hire a forklift operator is trust. It’s the one word every business owner needs to have in their staff and contractors.
The easy thing to do is to give us a call at Tough Yakka and let us do what we do best so you can focus on what you do best, and run your business.
A professional forklift operator can be trusted to get your job done quickly and with no unnecessary hassles. This means you don’t need to have to supervise them or have one of your other staff members keep watch. So, you not only save time but also money on extra staff costs.
