Established in 1971
Sunrise Forklift, Inc. is a small family-owned veteran business that was started by Bobby and Charlene Wilson. They worked hard for many years to establish a business built on integrity and dedication to quality service. Today, Sunrise Forklift, Inc. continues to deliver this same sense of integrity and quality service as it is being run by their sons, Allan Wilson and Chris Wilson and their daughter-in-law, Shelley Wilson.
"At Family RV we use many vendors to assist us with our needs to keep our business running well. We used another fork lift company and they gave us an enormous estimate to repair our fork lift that we actually bought from them. I called Sunrise forklift and the owner came out and in a few hours repaired it perfectly at 50 % or less then the other repair shop Thanks."
"My forklift stopped to start. Stephanie sent a technician to diagnose the problem the same day. The technician found the key wasn't working. So he replaced the key set. Still the forklift didn't start, later he found out the starter needs to be reworked. Anyway, he fixed my forklift with extra hours. When I brought the first mis-diagnose up, the manager is willing to give me some discount on the key replaced which is not necessary. Even though I don't need a new key, since they have replaced a new one and willing to give me discount on labor. I'm happy with the result. I'll come back in the future."
"Sunrise Forklift is the local dealer for TCM, and my experience with them has been excellent. The very polite and professional receptionist offered to "send her Dad" out to take an look when our truck wouldn't start. He called from the road, discussed symptoms and locations and turns out to live about a block away from the winery.
A follow up call when he had evaluated the truck told us that it was now starting, but really needed some work, and he provided a good estimate of the expected costs including transportation. (Even a small truck weights 2X what it picks up) His concern was that the required work might be more than the truck was worth (we bought it used with 6500 hrs) and was very thorough and profession in all interactions."
