Big Enough to Provide all Your Equipment Solutions – Local & Independently Owned to Provide that Personal Touch

Atlantic Lift Systems has been a family owned business since 1988, though our roots in the material handling industry extend back to 1965. We are committed to providing the equipment solutions you need and the superior customer service you expect. Over the years, our rental equipment has grown to become the vast and well maintained fleet of equipment that our clients rely on.  Our equipment rentals include premier quality boom lifts, scissor lifts, telehandlers, forklift trucks, compact excavators, skid loaders, general construction equipment, and more. We currently have two branches:  Norfolk (Corporate Office) and Richmond, Virginia.  From these strategically located branches, we are able to offer faster delivery and convenient pick up to all our clients, whether they are located somewhere in  Southeast Virginia, off the coast of North Carolina, or in the Richmond area. From start to finish, our experienced team is available with the responsive support, knowledge, and service required to ensure the best customized solution is provided to fit the needs of every aspect of your job, no matter how large or small.  When it comes to equipment rental, our clients know that our #1 goal is always to provide the best rental experience possible no matter what challenges they may face in the field and they have come to rely on that deliverable and rent with confidence. We are local and family owned, but here is the best part.  We pride ourselves on our ability to provide that big company feel through our vast equipment offerings, while maintaining the attention to detail and personal touch you expect when partnering with a smaller, independent company.  So, if you are looking to rent a boom lift in Norfolk or a skid loader in Richmond, a forklift truck on the Eastern Shore, or a telehander in the Outer Banks, you can rent with confidence when you make Atlantic Lift Systems your one stop source for all your equipment rental needs. 

In addition to our many equipment rental options, Atlantic Lift Systems offers new and used equipment parts and equipment sales featuring duct jacks, portable air compressors, submersible pumps, pressure washers, portable generators and other general construction equipment. We are your premier source for industrial sweeper/scrubbers, dock equipment, concrete equipment, and compaction equipment.  Through OEM and aftermarket programs. We are a certified dealer of new and used equipment and equipment parts from leading manufacturers like JLG, Chicago Pneumatics, Yanmar, Genie, Doosan Multiquip, Bulldog, Diamond Products and more.   If you are looking to purchase new or used equipment or equipment parts, look no further. Make Atlantic Lift Systems your first choice for premier quality new equipment or dependable,  fleet maintained used equipment. 

But wait, there’s more.  Perhaps you are not looking for equipment to rent. Instead, you have invested in owning your own construction or heavy equipment.  Like us, you understand that good quality equipment is a big investment and regular maintenance of your equipment is an important factor in cost control. Adhering to recommended maintenance schedules and regular inspections is necessary to maximize both profit and production.  Fortunately, we can assist with this too.  We have experienced service technicians available at each branch to meet all of your forklift repair and industrial equipment maintenance needs.  When you partner with Atlantic Lift Systems, you can count on our service technicians for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep needed to protect your equipment investment.   Our fleet  technicians are certified OEM repair specialists who  participate in ongoing training certifications so you can be confident that you’re getting the best possible equipment repair- performed to manufacturer specifications and using the highest quality parts made just for your equipment. 

As if that’s not enough, Atlantic Lift Systems offers aerial lift rental and fork lift rental safety training courses to our loyal  clients. We place the utmost value on the well-being and safety of our employees and our clients. Whether it’s at one of our facilities or at your jobsite or office, our safety training courses cover the safe and proper use of equipment in accordance with OSHA Regulations and ANSI Standards.

No matter what you need, our rental specialists are here to help every step of the way.
