Small businesses are what prop up the UK economy. They accounted for 99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2016, and if history is anything to go by, that number is certain to increase over the coming years.
Pallet Truck Shop, one of the UK’s leading providers of quality pallet trucks, table trucks, and accessories, has offered small businesses advice on which equipment is best for SMEs and start-ups who may be short on warehouse space.
Mini pallet trucks are the obvious choice for small businesses. Fork lengths measure between 800mm and 1100mm so are ideal for manoeuvring around small spaces. Due to their small size, they are also lighter than their counterparts, so should a gap be particularly tight, it is much easier to move. However they are just as robust and reliable as full size pallet trucks and boast incredible capacities.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director at Pallet Truck Shop, said, “The UK business landscape is thriving at the moment, with more and more people innovating and coming up with incredible new ideas. As we move into an uneasy period with Article 50 being triggered, it’s important that we continue to support UK start-ups and businesses from the get-go.”
Manual stackers are another key piece of equipment that can really support a small business with limited space. Able to reach heights of over one metre, they support those who rely on shelving to store items to maximise the available space. Equally, moving skates are incredibly easy to store due to their small size – but don’t be fooled, they are some of the strongest pieces of equipment the company sells. The strongest skates are easily able to manoeuvre 30 tonnes of goods.
Pallet Truck Shop has one of the largest ranges of equipment available on the internet. Their range of high-quality machinery makes light work of tasks and ups productivity in whatever setting.
