Platform Trucks & Trolleys
Platform Trucks and Trolleys explained
Platform Trucks enable heavier and larger loads to be transported around stockrooms and warehouses in less time, giving workers extra time for other jobs.
We have a number of platform trucks available with a wide range of capacities (up to an outstanding 500kg) and functionalities.
An important tip: When purchasing your platform truck you need to consider the deck material and the wheel type. This alters what sort of load can be carried. For example, you can get rubber castors that are suitable for flat surfaces or rough terrain pneumatic wheels suitable for rough and uneven terrain.
A platform truck is a safe way to transport goods. It features a low level work platform to maintain the solid placement of the goods, reducing the chance of loads falling off the platform in transit.
Platform Trucks have no sides, allowing for loads of a bigger surface area than the platform itself. Long loading decks enable the handling of bulk materials with ease. These decks come in a number of materials such as steel, metal composite, maintenance-free resin or HDPE structural plastic material that is easy to clean and resistant to chemical and weather damage.

Many of these platform trucks have folding handles. This allows you to store the trucks upright or where space is at a premium.
Another tip: employers need to be aware of the potential dangers of lifting and carrying heavy objects. So many injuries could be prevented each year if the correct equipment was used by employees.
We also provide our customers with many Health and Safety products that can be found in our Safety and Security section.
If your company has a stockroom and warehouse or whether you work on building sites or in garden centres, these platform trucks are ideal for you. Start a Live Chat now for helpful information and to receive a no-obligation quote.
