Unless you've been cut off from the world the past couple of days, you may have noticed that the wonderful Glastonbury took place this weekend! Festival-goers found themselves surprised with good weather for once and found their trolleys for festivals worked exceptionally well on the dry ground (rather than the standard mud bath).

You may think you've missed out on your chance to bag a great trolley for festivals this year, but fear not! There's still plenty of music festivals on their way such as Latitude, Boomtown, Creamfields, Green Man plus plenty more. With all these festivals in mind, now is perhaps the best time to take a look at the best trolleys for festivals available to you. Here's a look at some of our trolleys for festivals in action over the years:

70kg Black Folding Festival & Camping Trolley for Festivals 

Black Folding Trolley for Festivals

As you can see from the picture above, this 70kg Folding Festival Trolley for Festivals is perfect for carrying all your camping equipment AND your little ones when they find themselves tired out. As many festivals allow children to go for free, the main concern with bringing kids to festivals is usually whether they will be able to cope with walking around all day and not losing them in amongst the huge crowds. A trolley for festivals can help you with both of these problems! Keep your kids rested and safe while you walk around the campsite and wheel your camping kit around the festival easily too. What more could you ask for from a trolley for festivals?

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.

What Pallet Truck Should I Get? 


Luckily, we supply a range of pallet trucks so no matter how heavy your pallets are, we should have the perfect product for you. If you would like to see our full range of pallet trucks click here. Some of the other pallet trucks we specialise in are below:


Mini Pallet Trucks

mini pallet truck
If you’re looking for a compact pallet truck that is both strong and cost effective, our mini trucks are for you! They have shorter forks which are ideal for smaller loads and pallets.


Wide Pallet Trucks

wide pallet truck
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

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.
