PalletTrucksUK underlines best units for start ups

Last year the UK produced more start-up companies than ever before. And this year is set to break records just the same. With such stiff competition, how can UK start-ups ensure they stand out and cement their future?

PalletTrucksUK, one of the largest suppliers of pallet trucks, forklift fork extensions and lift tables to businesses, has offered start-ups and small businesses tips on which units are best to invest in for small companies who need a bit of oomph behind their small workforce.

Lift tables are indispensable for businesses where the lifting and lowering of goods is imperative. They provide a safe, secure and robust platform, ensuring safety at all times. Depending on the size and weight capacity needed, these start at just over £1000 ex. VAT, which although may seem like a large outlay to new companies, the production benefits offered by these far outweighs the initial price tag.

Manual stackers are another key ingredient in the start-up menu. They easily solve any lifting conundrum thanks to their strong and reliable build. Depending on what these stackers will be used for entirely depends on what businesses need to look for. Some businesses need them to tilt, while others needs vary much more so will need a stacker with adjustable legs. However for the entry-level stacker, businesses are looking at under £450 ex. VAT for a quality assured platform stacker.

“For equipment that brings so many benefits, these really do offer excellent value for money,” said Phil Chesworth, Managing Director at PalletTrucksUK. “When companies first start, the attentions are very much focussed on the purse strings, and it can sometimes be hard to see the wood for the trees. But sitting down and going through what needs to be done daily will help make things clearer. Then it is up to business owners to look at ways they can improve production and streamline processes going forward. And often, that includes investing in equipment.”

Moving skates are the last piece of the puzzle according to the experts. Incredibly cost-effective, they start at around £40 ex. VAT for a one tonne capacity skate, and offer incredible safety credentials. Used for gliding heavy and large objects from one area to another they cut down on injury and make the process inherently faster.
