Pallet Jacks Tips
People who work in warehouses and distribution centers routinely handle boxes and other items that can weigh several hundred to several thousand pounds. They must pull product off of storage shelves sometimes 15 or 20 feet above the ground and they must load and unload pallets of freight from the trucks that pull up to the loading dock every day. To facilitate the movement of the heavy loads, special material handling equipment is an absolute necessity.
A hand truck is one of the indispensable tools that allow workers to quickly move heavy items from point to point. When boxes are stacked and wrapped on pallets, pallet jacks slip under the pallet and lift the heavy load off the ground so it can be moved where it needs to be. A fork lift makes quick work out of handling heavy pallets and is also essential for placing or retrieving pallets on storage racks that rise high above the floor.
Forklifts can be used to load trucks, move pallets and do the heavy lifting tasks around the warehouse. If a forklift is not available, you can always use pallet jacks to get the freight to the truck. In cases where you do not have a loading dock, lift trucks can be used to lift the pallet and pallet jack up level to the truck's interior and then the pallet can be manually wheeled into place.
Lift trucks solve the problem of getting a heavy load up or down from the truck's floor. As you can see, having a hand truck and fork lift are vital to the operation of a warehouse. Without forklifts, it would take at least twice the labor and twice the time to load and unload freight.
