What is a Pallet Truck used for?

It’s no secret that we know a thing or two about pallet trucks - we are Palletrucks-Trolleys after all. But just because we are experts doesn’t mean that everyone knows what a pallet truck is used for. That’s exactly why we’ve created this blog post, so you can find out what is a pallet truck used for too! 

So, What is a Pallet Truck Used For?

A pallet truck, which may also be called a pallet jack or a pallet pump is the most basic form of forklift available. They are designed to lift and move pallets and palletised loads, making someone’s job a lot easier. Best suited within a warehouse environment, pallet trucks will actually save you time and effort as they make a task that would take multiple people, a one-man job. This effectively makes everything run a lot smoother!


Pallet trucks are best used for relatively short distances and each pallet truck will have its own weight capacity. It’s important not to overload this weight capacity as pallet trucks are designed to be controlled smoothly and easily, and this can be affected by excess weight.

Some goods will be exceptionally wide, which is exactly why we have a pallet truck that can accommodate this need! A wider pallet truck is just as efficient as the smaller trucks and will make moving wide loads a lot easier.


Electric Pallet Truck

If you have a particularly heavy load to lift and move (up to 1.5 tonne), then an electric/powered pallet truck eliminates almost all of the manual effort that is required for the job! Easier to load and move, electric pallet trucks can be used to make a lifting job a lot quicker.
