October 10, 2019

If heavy, awkward, and bulky items have to be lifted and transported day to day in your workplace, then expecting people to move them by hand is just not realistic. To get the job done faster and safer, you need to invest in a manual handling aid.

As manual handling aids go, the platform trolley is a good all-rounder. Platform trolleys have a plastic, wooden, or metal platform and wheels to make the transportation of heavy or awkward goods much easier. You’ll find that some platform trolleys have sides fitted to keep goods secure in transit.
