Pallet Trucks vs. Forklifts: A Plus Warehouse Does the Heavy Lifting on the Matter

November 2, 2010  |  Comments

Forklifts and pallet trucks are a staple of warehouses everywhere, but which does a better job of moving heavy loads? A Plus Warehouse, a leading business-to-business distributor of locker equipment and quality industrial and materials handling equipment, has gotten to the bottom of the matter, and explains why pallet trucks win the heavyweight championship of warehouse movers.

Pallet trucks are user-friendly and low-maintenance, whereas forklifts require OSHA-compliant certification and evaluation training. Pallet trucks are also generally a lot more affordable and much easier to maneuver in compact and rugged areas. "One of the biggest advantages is that all-terrain pallet trucks can move items around indoors and outdoors in the nastiest of construction environments - arguably better than forklifts," said Ed Stairman, president of A Plus Warehouse.

A Plus Warehouse carries a wide variety of pallet trucks designed for typical pallets (27"x48"), with additional options available with narrow forks and long forks. Their selection includes choices from all the top manufacturers, including Wesco, Vestil, Mobile, and private label hand pallet trucks as well. In addition, A Plus Warehouse is widely-known for employing some of the most knowledgeable salespeople in the business (an A Plus Warehouse associate can always help with any questions, configurations or ordering assistance), and providing the best customer service available.

"At A Plus Warehouse we focus on the five Ps," explained Stairman. "Purpose - Our well-defined purpose is to provide value and service to our customers while earning a fair return. Place - We sell exclusively on the internet. Price - Our prices are considered competitive and aggressive by reasonable standards.
