Investing in good quality equipment for a business can be costly. However it is imperative that businesses do so in order to make sure they avoid hefty bills in the future. Pallet Truck Shop, one of the country’s largest providers of pallet trucks and other manual handling equipment to a wide range of sectors, is urging companies to spend as much as they can afford in order to get the best out of their equipment to avoid replacing whole units on a regular basis.
Pallet trucks, stackers, lift tables and aerial work platforms are some of the most practical and versatile tools to have in an industrial workplace. Playing a vital role in a business’ profit margins, the equipment is put under a lot of stress daily so needs to be strong and hard-wearing. Such equipment allows a higher volume of work to be carried out at a faster rate, with less stress and physical exertion for employees, so are crucial for businesses to flourish. Therefore, although investing in top-of-the-range equipment can seem expensive at first, the day-to-day benefits outweigh the initial outlay.
Phil Chesworth from Pallet Truck Shop said, “Although it can be tempting to go for the cheapest option, it really is advised to spend as much as you can possibly afford in order to get the most out of the equipment. Often carrying large amounts of products and items, they are put under a lot of stress daily and can wear out quickly. Therefore, by investing in good quality equipment at the beginning, you will actually save money in the long run as they will generally last longer. So instead of replacing whole units should they wear out, you will actually only need to replace odd parts, such as wheels and handles.”
Starting from as little as £9.99 +VAT, replacing wheels, bearing and handles is much cheaper than replacing whole units. By making sure businesses invest in strong, sturdy equipment, even though wheels may need replacing, the physical structure will still be good enough to carry on using for years to come.
Pallet Truck Shop stock a huge range of robust and equipment at competitive prices. They also stock an array of accessories and replacement parts, such as wheels, bearings, handles and seal kits, so that businesses can simply replace worn out parts simply, easily and cost-effectively.
