Growing or Growing Business?

Posted on | Posted in General

Garden centres, plant nurseries and other horticultural establishments are increasingly using manual pallet trucks to work alongside their trolleys, trucks and other manual handling equipment for lifting and moving plants and stock.

Often spending a lot of time outdoors, pump trucks used in garden centres and other growing businesses can soon suffer from exposure to the elements resulting in seized wheels, leaking hydraulics or faulty trigger mechanisms.  Regular pallet truck maintenance and servicing reduces repairs, extends the life of the pallet truck and keeps costs under control.

Health and safety is also important in growing businesses, especially in retail and public areas and so it should come as no surprise that even the humble pump truck needs to have an annual examination, supported by a PUWER Certificate of Examination; a perfect opportunity to give every pallet truck a maintenance check and nip any problems on the bud.

HallmarkFIX offers nationwide, professional on-site annual inspection, servicing and repair of pallet trucks, taking the problem off your desk and placing it onto ours; we’ll even call you every year, just before inspection is due, to remind you.

If you’re responsible for pallet truck maintenance call Clive Perry now on 0161 272 1900 even if you’re a long way from Manchester, you’re unlikely to be far from a HallmarkFIX engineer.
