Mark Gulley, Crediton Milling
“I can confirm that Westexe have been contracted to Western Power Distribution nationally for 3 years, as their repairs, service and maintenance provider. Their quality of work and response times have been of the highest standard. During this period we have also purchased in excess of 15 new forklifts, which have improved the reliability of our fleet considerably. I would recommend Westexe as a company to anybody who would be looking to purchase new or used forklifts.”
Jim Kittle - Stores Manager, Western Power Distribution
“Westexe have proven themselves to be a top supplier to Gregory Distribution. Having supplied an original fleet of over 20 machines as well as maintaining many of our owned forklifts, bailers, sweepers, scrubbers and pallet wrapping machines, Westexe delivered, at very short notice, a fleet of 16 order pickers and Articulated machines on contract hire. I am not sure who else could have this diversity and commitment.”
Darren Beaven – Business Unit Director, Gregory Distribution Limited
“At Client Base Fulfilment Limited we had a mix of 12 very old machines that were working but becoming ever increasingly difficult to keep on the road. Our current supplier was starting to fail and we were recommended Westexe and have never looked back. A tremendous service.”
Rob Smeaddle – MD, Client Base Fulfilment Limited
“We have a preference for local businesses and have been fortunate to have found Westexe Forklifts Ltd. The service we have been given during our time trading together has been exemplary and cost effective. We get very quick response to our request for repairs and more importantly we get personal service from the directors and staff, second to none. There have been occasions when the almost impossible request has been fulfilled and always with courteous efficiency.”
Pat - Safety Assistant, Higher Kings Mill
“On having approached Westexe for a quote on a replacement forklift, Greg Vooght came to our site and was most helpful and understanding on what our requirements were. We had a limited budget so he suggested that a good route to go would be a second hand forklift. Within a couple of weeks, a suitable forklift was sourced, whereupon I was invited into Westexe to view the machine and discuss its refurbishment plan. Within a month the forklift was ready for delivery, having been resprayed and fully overhauled to a really great standard.”
David Lloyd - BOCM PAULS LTD
“I have been associated with Westexe for over two years. We run 22 forklifts of various shapes and designs, and maintain our own fleet. Sourcing spares can be a major headache, and Westexe are the cure. Fast, friendly next day service, reducing downtime costs. My next purchase for a new machine will be with Westexe. Experienced and a great team, a pleasure to do business with.”
Darren Moreing - Fleet & Operations Director
“Westexe stabilised our service costs through quality and regular servicing. This is the first time we have been in control of the MHE costs in many years, thanks to Westexe.”

“Westexe Forklifts have looked after our forklift needs for 5 years now and although we only have one machine, when we need them they are punctual, professional and good value for money.”
