Pallet Trucks

A pallet truck - also known as a pallet jack or pump truck - is a manual or powered tool that's designed for lifting and moving pallets within a warehouse or a loading dock. Its primary purpose is to facilitate the transportation of goods stored on UK pallets / Euro pallets, which are often used in industrial and commercial settings for efficient handling and storage of goods.

Hand pallet trucks typically consist of a wheeled chassis with forks that can be inserted into the openings of a pallet. These hydraulic forks are then raised, allowing the pallet and its load to be lifted off the ground for easy manoeuvring.

Our pallet trucks range in capacity from 1 – 5 tonnes, and they're available with Polyurethane, Nylon or Rubber Coated wheels and rollers. Browse our selection of pallet trucks below.

Why use a pallet truck?

Pallet trucks make the process of lifting and transporting pallets significantly quicker and easier - not to mention safer.

Manual handling injuries are extremely common, and their effect on your health and your ability to work can be long-lasting. Using nothing but your own strength to lift and move heavy loads may result in a bad back, a hernia, or any number of other strains and sprains, so it's a good idea to utilise alternative handling methods where possible.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends using mechanical aids such as pallet trucks to minimise the risk of injury during handling operations. Moving loads with a pallet truck or trolley will put less strain on your body and enable you to get the job done more efficiently.

 

How to use a pallet truck

  • Before you do anything, give the pallet truck a quick inspection to confirm that everything is in good working order.
     
  • Don’t overload your pallet truck - check the working load limit (WLL) and make sure you don't exceed it.
     
  • Pull, don’t push. To avoid injuring yourself, use correct form and posture when moving the pallet truck.
