Waverley Forklifts is a family owned company that evolved from a bottle recycling business that began in 1895 to a forklift and transport specialist in 1973. Over the past forty years, we have grown to be one of the largest fully independent forklift and transport companies in Australia.

Currently owned and operated by Charlie Schwerkolt, Waverley Forklifts has expanded to include a forklift fleet of over 1,200 machines. With our Head Office situated in Melbourne, we also have locations in Sydney (Waverley Forklifts Sales), South East Queensland (Waverley Forklifts Queensland) and Adelaide (Waverley Forklifts SA).

We consider our main product to be ‘service’ in the provision of forklift solutions rather than just being a forklift company.

We know that we are guaranteeing our own success by working on the success of your business.

We have worked hard over a number of years to refine our standards of operation to ensure that every contact you have with Waverley Forklifts is a satisfactory one. Even though our goals are set high, our plan is to maintain the small business feeling that underpins everything that we do.

It is rare in this day and age for a company to be in business for over forty years, let alone maintain double digit growth for every year of its existence.

Waverley Forklifts has achieved this by never forgetting the most important part of our business, the customer.

At Waverley Forklifts, we want to be in business with you.

We will do whatever it takes and go the extra mile to ensure that the product and service we deliver to you meets and exceeds your expectations.

Whatever your request, we will make it happen.

Welcome to the Waverley Way.
