The experts at Pallet Truck Shop are encouraging all businesses to boost their organisation and the security of their pallet trucks with the simple addition of a pallet truck chock. The small devices are an essential in many workplaces across the country, where loading areas or pallet trucks in vehicles can cause potential damage should they become unsecure and start to roll away unchecked. The team at Pallet Truck Shop are speaking out to anyone who has experienced a runaway pallet truck or any damage to their fleet in 2013; invest in a chock for 2014 and see the effect it has across the workforce.
Pallet truck chocks are small moulded plastic devices, lightweight, durable and essential for many warehouses, distribution centres and factories. They sit behind the rear wheel of a pallet truck in order to secure it, with rubber stoppers on the bottom allowing the chock to hold the truck in position while it is being loaded or unloaded, or while it is in transit.
Phil Chesworth, of Pallet Truck Shop, which is one of the country’s leading suppliers of pallet trucks and other manual handling equipment, says, “Businesses that invest in pallet trucks do so because they are important business assets which can be used over the long-term. It is essential that these organisations take control of their fleet and remove the risk of preventable damage done to their equipment or their goods, by using a pallet truck chock. The small plastic chocks are lightweight and inexpensive, but the effect that they can have in loading bays and distribution areas in workplaces across the country is dramatic. Put simply, they are a must for any and all businesses that utilise pallet trucks as part of their everyday operations.”
Pallet Truck Shop’s flagship chock was designed specifically to eliminate damage caused by runaway pallet trucks. Ideal for haulage companies, pallet distributors and any other business that utilises pallet trucks in their distribution areas, the lightweight chock, which weighs in at around 3lbs, is easy to store and even easier to use. It is a must for those want to organise and protect their pallet trucks in a year when all losses could prove pivotal to a business’ future.
