steerable machinery skates

Moving heavy machinery is no easy task! As you can image, most machines are rather heavy, and moving them can be a real challenge. It's very important to use the correct equipment when moving machinery, as not only do you risk injuring yourself, you also risk the machine you're moving.

Our range of Steerable Machinery Skates has been designed to transport heavy machinery without any issues. So, if you're looking to transport machinery swiftly, effortlessly and as safely as possible - look no further than our machinery skates!

The SWL (Safe Working Load) of each of our machinery skate sets must be obeyed at all times. So for example, if you need to move a load weighing 6 tonnes, you should use a skate set that has a SWL of 6 tonnes or more to transport your load. All of our steerable machinery skates feature polyurethane wheels that help prevent floor damage, and each skate set is suitable for heavy industrial use, and is available for hire and to buy.

Folding Platform Trolley

When it comes to moving goods quickly and easily, a folding platform trolley is often the perfect solution.

Folding platform trolleys (available to buy here) have numerous advantages, and we'd like to take a look at some of them today.

The benefits of using a folding platform trolley

  • Firstly, a folding platform trolley can increase efficiency in the workplace when compared to moving loads by hand. The trolley makes it quick and easy to transport items from A to B, saving time and saving your employees energy in the process. Manual lifting and carrying is a tiring - and sometimes dangerous - process that can be easily avoided with the purchase of a folding platform trolley.
  • Another benefit of a folding platform trolley is that, unlike a standard platform trolley, it can be folded away and stored conveniently. This is especially advantageous in small warehouses and workplaces where space is at a premium. It also avoids the health and safety risks that can arise from leaving a trolley in the middle of a thoroughfare or exit route.
  • Folding platform trolleys are made with high-quality but lightweight materials, making them exceptionally easy to manoeuvre. Since they're light and easy to store, they are also incredibly portable!

*Prices correct at time of writing. Stated prices include VAT.

Do you need a folding platform trolley?

Many different workplaces could benefit from the addition of a folding platform trolley, but they are especially helpful in working environments such as:

  • Warehouses
  • Storage facilities
  • Garden centres
  • Large retail stores

Still, whatever your working environment, it is likely that a folding platform trolley will come in handy at some point. They can be used to move goods around a warehouse without the worry that you will drop or damage the items you are moving. The trolleys can also be used when moving to a new office, or even when rearranging things at home.

The size and weight capacity of our folding platform trolleys are more than sufficient to handle moving items such as laptops, computers, coffee machines, etc. from room to room.
