It’s a new year and with it brings an opportunity for a new focus on keeping your business operations safe and stress-free. South Island Forklifts are here to help with that. We are giving away a lithium-ion electric pallet truck with every 60 months hire of a forklift at South Island Forklifts. (Terms and conditions apply.)
We all know that pallet trucks are a must-have for most warehouses. They save you time and are easy to manoeuvre where large forklifts can’t get. The added benefits of an electric motor bring so many extra advantages to you, your staff, and your business efficiencies.
The number one safety benefit of an electric pallet truck is that it reduces the strain on the operator. If you’re pulling 2.5 tons of weight without any assistance, it’s going to take its toll on your back, waist, and legs – no doubt about it. So if you want to reduce your ACC claims and keep your staff fit and working, it’s the best way to go.
Surprisingly, manual pallet trucks still account for 90 percent of the market in New Zealand, and we want to change that! With electric braking, you can avoid the risks of staff being run over and injured by a pallet truck that’s out of control. Because it’s the motor taking the strain, there’s no strain on the operator’s body, which means much less risk of operator injury.
Add that all up, and you’ve increased productivity and reduced stress on your workforce. So, if you’re looking to keep your efficiencies in check and you care about your staff’s health and safety, then you may have found a perfect solution right here.
We are the South Island’s largest stockists of forklifts. Our reputation is built on quality, service, and reliability. So talk to one of our experts about our range of new forklifts. Or if you need a forklift for just a couple of hours or a couple of months, we can help you out there too, with hire options available on a wide range of equipment.
