Who We Are

Since our founding in 1949, Bailey has been dedicated to providing end-to-end material handling solutions that keep our customers running
efficiently. At our 10 locations throughout Tennessee, north Georgia, and southeastern Kentucky, we offer forklifts and other equipment from leading brands, including Crown Lift Trucks, Cat Lift Trucks, Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, Jungheinrich, Kalmar, and Hoist, as well as rentals and 24/7 parts & service. With 12 locations, 200+ certified technicians, and a 4-hour response time guarantee, we guarantee you will get the support you need when you need it.

Our intralogistics solutions go beyond forklifts, delivering you the warehouse design, racking, automation, and storage solutions you need in One Material Handling Solution. We are proud to be family-owned and operated, certified woman-owned, and the first TRUE Zero Waste forklift dealership in the nation.
