Midland Pallet Trucks Encourages Businesses to Consider Long-Term Truck Solutions Rather than Short-

As 2016 fast approaches, managers across the country will be considering their approach to equipment in the new year – do they invest in brand new trucks as a long-term option, or is short-term rental the way forward?

Midland Pallet Trucks, one of the country’s leading providers of pallet trucks to a variety of industries, is urging businesses to choose the former option, rather than utilising rental trucks as a stopgap. By investing in quality equipment with a long-term goal, businesses will find themselves better prepared for the future, and will benefit from the quality assurance that all brand new pallet trucks come with.

Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “When it comes to times of high demand, many businesses simply bring in rental pallet trucks in order to keep their operations running smoothly – but this can be fraught with a multitude of issues. There’s no guarantee about the quality of a rental truck, and constantly turning to rental options can be a drain on budgets and resources.”

He adds, “We always recommend that businesses take the plunge and invest in high-quality materials handling equipment from the word ‘go’. These essential items are crucial in environments like warehouses, factories and distribution centres, and many businesses place themselves at risk of spending more money than they intended on extra trucks, or receiving faulty apparatus that does not function nearly as well as a brand new truck. For companies that feel they might be short on equipment to cope with periods of high demand, the answer lies in long-term investment and planning rather than reactionary rentals.”

Opting for rental trucks can be something of a lottery for business owners. They could receive a truck that’s more than ten years old, or a truck that’s only been used a handful of times. The vast majority will be in good working order, but there may be any number of underlying faults that could end up slowing down processes in the workplace. These trucks could also be putting staff safety at risk – a real no-no for business owners everywhere.

Midland Pallet Trucks, part of the Midland Bearings Group, has a colossal 60,000 square foot warehouse packed with quality pallet trucks just waiting to be shipped to busy companies. The team at Midland are always sourcing the latest new models, and they offer a wide range of niche trucks with specialist abilities, from weigh scale pallet trucks to traverse truck, which can navigate narrow aisles with ease. All of this equipment has passed strict quality control procedures, and with the correct maintenance and repair work, will be faithful servants in warehouses and factories for many years to come.
