What Is a Pallet Jack?

A pallet jack is a smaller alternative to the forklift. Used in manufacturing units, industrial units and warehouses, the pallet jack allows easy handling of inventory in tight spaces. Available in various configurations, carrying capabilities and sizes. Our Pallet Jacks have simple, flexible controls and exceptional maneuverability. Designed with a rough and tough industrial environment in mind, the material handling equipment has low maintenance requirements and long-life durability. 


Pallet jacks allow the lowering and raising of the pallets and can fulfill loading, transporting, and storing requirements with ease. For pallet jacks in Surrey, rely on Westminster Lift Truck & Services.


Where Is a Pallet Jack Used?

A pallet jack can be used for loading and moving materials within:

  • Stockrooms
  • Cold storage facilities
  • Warehouses and workshops
  • Factories and manufacturing plants
  • Supermarkets
  • Trucks

In each of these premises, suitable pallet jacks can reduce the need for heavy lifting and facilitate convenient material handling. To find pallet trucks that fit your unique requirements perfectly, call us today


Hand Pallet Jacks vs Electric Pallet Jacks

At Westminster Lift Truck & Services, we provide both hand and electric pallet jacks for operations of all types. Choosing between the two types of pallet jacks can be difficult, but going over your requirements and putting them against the features provided by the equipment makes the process easier. As the term suggests, hand pallet jacks are operated manually and offer a convenient way to handle your products. These pallets are generally cheaper than their electric counterparts because of their low prices and ease of maintenance. They require minimal training to operate and are a perfect fit for small businesses and those with lightweight materials.

Our electric pallets are more sophisticated than the manual ones since they come outfitted with a motor that does the lifting for you. They can be put to various uses and can lift light, medium, and heavy weights. Our electric pallets in Vancouver are also ideal for longer distances and move faster than manual ones. They require maintenance and battery changes.

If you're unsure of which type of pallet is right for your operations, our team can help you out.

How to Handle a Pallet Truck

To get the most out of your pallet truck, you should know how to handle it the right way. Here are the steps you can follow: 

  • Place the load on a pallet and secure it properly with the help of restraints. 
  • Move your pallet truck to slide the forks into the gaps provided on the pallet.
  • Raise the pallet off the ground using the pump-action handle or Electric Controls.
  • Once the loaded pallet is off the ground, you can use the handle to maneuver the pallet truck and move the loads. 

Forklifts vs Pallet Jacks

Both forklifts and pallet jacks serve the purpose of material handling. However, the equipment is different in terms of their respective capabilities. Forklifts are larger and are ideal for lifting and moving inventory both indoors, as well as outdoors. A pallet jack, on the other hand, is smaller in size and less expensive. It is best suited for handling loaded pallets within warehouses. Known for exceptional manoeuvrability and controls, they can move through narrow aisles and make material handling easy, even when there is a space constraint. Affordable and easy to maintain, pallet jacks are perfect for everyday lifting and moving of lighter loads. Westminster Lift Truck & Services is your reliable destination for both forklifts and pallet jacks in Surrey.
