Want to reduce the risk of worker injury and improve efficiency in your warehouse? A pallet truck, sometimes known as a pallet jack, is exactly what you need. However, not every option is suitable for every job. Here’s why you need a pallet truck and what types are available.
If you move pallets and palletised loads on a daily basis, a pallet truck makes light work of it. Pallet trucks make work tasks more efficient because:
Hand pallet trucks like our Heavy Duty Pallet Truck are so easy to use and don’t require any special training for operators. However, being basic and easy to use doesn’t mean you won’t get tonnes of use out of this piece of kit. This takes the stress and strain out of lifting and handling loads of up to 3000kg.
Weigh scale pallet trucks like our Premium Weigh Scale Pallet Trucks allow you to weigh goods before you transport them. This comes in really handy when you have a delivery van or lorry with a load limit. It’s illegal to overload a van. Say you’ve got an HGV delivering goods. This is what you can expect to pay if the police find you’ve overloaded it:
Investing in a weigh scale truck gives you peace of mind that this will never happen.
Being able to lift pallets to a comfortable working height is more efficient and it prevents worker injuries from bending. A pallet truck like our Electric High Lift Pallet Truck lifts pallets to a safe working height and doubles as a workbench.
Need a more niche pallet truck? We’ve got you! In our range of specialist trucks, you’ll find something for those jobs that need a certain something. Need a truck you can manoeuvre in narrow aisles? What about one that can navigate bumpy terrain? Need to move cable drums or irregular loads? You’ll find the right truck for the job in the specialist pallet trucks section of our site.
