Black Friday

Posted on | Posted in General

Black Friday.

A curious innovation which has been part of our American cousin’s retail culture for some time now, and something that we Brits have tried to embrace for the past few years.

I notice this year that this has also been adopted by some of the larger on-line pallet truck sellers, offering:

UNBELIEVABLE DEALS ON NEW HAND PALLET TRUCKS

The relevant term in the above statement is “Unbelievable Deals”. While it is true some sites are offering pallet trucks from as little as £159.00 (not including delivery) the quality of the goods can leave a little to be desired.

The pallet truck is an integral part of any business needing to move palletised goods, whether in a busy warehouse or on a retail unit shop floor, and is something that should not be chosen on the basis of a marketing ploy.

Always buy from a trusted source but even then, make sure the truck will come a warranty, CE Mark and full parts back up in the UK. It is no use buying cheaply if at the first time a part is required, the item in question is not available.

HallmarkFIX sell European sourced equipment backed by manufacturers who keep full parts inventories in the UK.
