Raymond dealer Carolina Handling is auctioning a patriotically painted forklift to raise money for two organisations that support United States war veterans.

The Raymond 7000 series single reach forklift was adorned with the American flag and the Statue of Liberty by a Carolina Handling shop technician and army reservist identified as David G.

Bidding on the colourful custom-painted forklift opened online on the American Hire a Veteran Day on 25 July and will continue until 17 August.

Proceeds will be given to non-profit organisations Folds of Honor and Upstate Warrior Solution.

Carolina Handling president and chief executive Brent Hillabrand says the forklift can be used as a warehouse workhorse or a novelty piece for any workplace.

Carolina Handling is the exclusive Raymond Solutions and Support Centre for North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida’s Central time zone territory.
