Working with large retail chains and restaurants, ray5including a recent signage job of over 35 coffee shops in the Phoenix area, RAYTEK needed a more effective solution to their material handling needs.

The challenge of moving oversized crates full of light fixtures, signage and electrical materials between storage areas and company vehicles prompted the need for a reliable forklift.

“We did our research, talking to six forklift manufacturers before deciding on Doosan,” says Perry. “We had an idea of what we wanted and we were looking for a supplier that would continue to support us. We immediately liked Doosan forklifts and Reliable  Forklift Sales. Just like us, Reliable has a very strong focus on customer service and maintaining a good working relationship with its customers.”

ray3“Reliable Forklift Sales was incredibly helpful to us, loaning us a forklift to use before our new one arrived. They offer outstanding service and always make sure our Doosan is taken care of.

They offer expert advice, fast and courteous service, and prompt delivery to job-sites. Products can be viewed at their design showroom centers located at each of their locations.

At Preach Building SupplyPicture4 significant time is spent using lift trucks to transfer heavy materials. The forklifts load and unload everything from bricks and blocks to landscaping products. The prior forklift brands had several maintenance issues, which took a toll on their productivity. The company decided to replace their outdated forklifts.  After meeting with Mark Prine, salesman at Reliable Forklift Sales of Phoenix, Preach chose Doosan forklifts.

Kim Abberton, CFO of Preach Building Supply notes “I enjoyed working with Mark and the Reliable sales team.  Everyone was so accommodating.  They helped us get our new Doosan G25E-5 lift trucks immediately. I would highly recommend Reliable Forklift Sales and Doosan forklifts to anyone.”

Robbie Mendez, Manager of Preach Building Supply, West Hatcher location in Phoenix, commented that: “Our Doosan forklifts are nice and durable. Our operators can tell a difference in their comfort and control and find that they are easier to use.”

Picture5“We’ve been very impressed with Reliable Forklift Sales. Whenever we ever need service Reliable takes care of it immediately and will bring us a loaner forklift to keep us running. Based on my 30 years of building supply experience using forklifts, I would definitely recommend buying a Doosan from Reliable,” comments Robbie Mendez.


ReCommunity Recycling


ReCommunity Recycling is an industry leader, Picture2working with communities in 14 states to recycle resources destined for landfills. They convert recyclables into clean and efficient commodities, products and energy. Their goal is to preserve the environment, benefit the economy and promote recycling value awareness.

ReCommunity Recycling’s River Plant in Scottsdale, AZ recycles plastics, paper and glass. One of five Arizona locations, the River Plant processes 29 tons per hour and over 560 tons a day.


Operating ReCommunity Recycling’s River Plant requires durable and dependable equipment built to function continuously for 18 hours a day.  Loose wires and broken glass are always present, making for a tough work environment.  The other brands of forklifts they previously used would break down from lots of debris getting into their engine compartments and from bailing wires getting wrapped around the forklift tires.  Those lift trucks also overheated, due to the small size of their radiators.  ReCommunity Recycling needed new and better forklifts to keep their production on schedule, so they turned to Reliable Forklift Sales, an exclusive Doosan dealer in Phoenix, AZ.


Understanding their customer’sPicture5 needs, Reliable Forklift Sales custom designed new Doosan G35 forklifts with a longer length belly pan, extending from the front of the forklift all the way to the engine.  The longer pan successfully prevents lots of wire, glass and paper products from      entering the engine compartment, which keeps the trucks operating properly.  The new Doosan forklifts are also equipped with a larger radiator that keeps the trucks running in the extreme Arizona heat.  Vic Villont, Area Sales Manager at Reliable Forklift Sales noted “we help our customers in any way we can.  In addition to the custom designed longer length belly pan, their forklifts included a shorter triple mast, transmission cooler, dual filters and an extended  warranty.”


“The larger radiators on our Doosan forklifts keep working in the Arizona heat.  We’ve had 3  other brands of  forklifts here that kept overheating.  Now they are waiting in the junk pile to be processed.”
