A Versatile, Economical Choice
One of the most economical material handling equipment choices in the moving industry today is the platform truck. It is a very versatile piece of equipment that is available in a variety of sizes, and materials. Depending on the job and the items that need to be transported there is a platform truck that is perfectly suited to your needs. However, it is a good idea to always have on hand a very sturdy, basic versatile model.
Everyone Is In the Moving Business
And everyone knows that a sturdy, versatile, economical piece of equipment is hard to beat. Actually, almost every business is a moving business by some definition of the word. Not only moving companies need to move items and material, but many companies in all lines of business have the need to move various items, although some more than others. No matter what needs to be moved there are some basic moving equipment items that can be utilized in a variety of ways.
And even if your business is not specifically in the moving industry, it could benefit greatly from having versatile material handling equipment on hand at all times, in case the need should arise. For companies that need to do a lot of moving, having an economical option comes in handy due to the number of times that the equipment may need to be replaced because of wear and tear. For companies that do less moving, a sturdy yet economical option is also a great choice.
A Well-Rounded Option
A perfect example of this type of equipment is the Economy Steel Folding Handle Truck by Wesco. This particular item is available in both small and large size options. Both options have a fold down handle which makes transport and storage extremely easy and efficient. They have an enameled finish over the steel frame, with a non-skid heavy vinyl deck surface. They are also equipped with protective vinyl perimeter bumpers and thermoplastic rubber casters for easy maneuverability. Even the smaller size option is a sturdy piece of equipment with a platform size of 19” x 29” and a load capacity of 275 lbs. The larger size option has a platform size of 23” x 35” and a load capacity of 400 lbs. Both are relatively light, and are easy to maneuver. These and many other platform trucks are available through Douglas Equipment.
