Platform Trucks and Trolleys are utilised in all kinds of industries due to their reliability and ease of use. We have been making the same classic design for years using state of the art facilities right here in Devon, and can safely say that it is one of the most durable and heavy duty design on the market. The standard design can be modified to provide a large number of options including increased sizes and capacities, a range of different side panels, dead man braking systems, full security systems, ATEX rated spark proofing, Integrated weighing scales, and even powered motor systems that eliminate any effort required to push the trolley.

Built to BSEN Standards and supplied with a 5 year warranty, our platform trucks and trolleys are built to be heavy duty and last a lifetime. We can also make platform trucks and trolleys to your exact needs and specification, all the way from a quick sketch to prototyping to delivery direct to your door. Whether its one or one thousand and one, we have the facilities to make the right trolley to suit you.

Platform trucks and trolleys are staple pieces of equipment for a variety of industries due to their reliability, flexibility and ease of use. They are used in a broad range of different work environments, providing an efficient method of transporting objects of all shapes and sizes. This can range from a pile of bulky boxes, long lengths of steel, or confidential files.

Platform trolleys can be used anywhere, from warehouses and factories to hotels, hospitals and in the logistics sector.

In warehouses and at distribution centres, a platform truck is equipped for transporting goods, materials and equipment in heavy or bulky boxes. This ensures that working environments are safe, with less risk of workplace injuries. In industrial environments, platform trolleys are used to lift and transport machinery while in hotels and hospitals, they are an essential tool for medical staff needing to transport medical equipment and supplies.

Our classic design has been constructed using high-quality materials, making it one of the most durable and heavy-duty options in the market place. The standard design can be modified to provide increased sizes and capacities, a range of different side panels, deadman braking systems, full security systems, ATEX-rated spark proofing, integrated weighing scales, and even powered motor systems that eliminate effort required to push the trolley.

Designed to meet relevant BS EN and supplied with a five-year warranty, our platform trucks and trolleys are built to last. We can also design and fabricate platform trucks to meet your exact specification, from an initial sketch to prototyping and finally delivery direct to your door.

Platform Trucks & Trolleys FAQs

What is the purpose of a platform trolley?

Platform trolleys are designed to reduce the hard physical labour of moving goods and objects, alleviating any strain on the part of an individual tasked with transporting items from one location to another.

 

There are many different types, each designed to assist with a particular job in mind.

 

Turntable trolleys have a high capacity and perform optimally over rough terrain thanks to their axle-mounted wheels and a robust steering mechanism. 

 

Meanwhile, double-sided trolleys allow people to separate a load accordingly. 

 

To source a platform trolley for your specific purpose, reach out to us today by dialling 01803 875222

What are the advantages of using a platform trolley?

Not only are platform trolleys cost-effective and efficient, but they are easy to operate. 

 

They are also incredibly stable, supplied with grips that guarantee stock does not fall – in turn reducing the risk of avoidable workplace injuries.

 

Platform trolleys can improve work efficiency and productivity, making awkward tasks simpler by affording swift and hassle-free transportation. 

 

Durable and built to last, they don’t need constant looking after or repair, making them a financially prudent choice too.
