Using purpose-designed handling aids reduces, and often removes, the risks of heavy lifting and handling and also ensures that employee injuries are kept to a minimum. Manual handling aids have, furthermore, been proven to increase productivity. In short, an investment in lifting and handling equipment is therefore a cost effective way to minimise risk, increase productivity and ensure compliance with statutory regulations.
BiGDUG’s philosophy of offering customers ‘Great Products, Great Prices and Great Customer Service’ has made it the UK’s biggest independent supplier of industrial shelving, racking and storage products and this customer-driven philosophy extends into our vast range of workplace trucks and trolleys.
We have a wide range of job-specific Forklift Attachments, for example, that are all manufactured in the UK, tested and certified to ISO9001 standard and utilise the manoeuvrability and lifting capacity of the forklift truck.
Supporting our claim to be able to reduce operator strain in any working environment, we also offer a range of industry-certified Pallet Trucks that will meet the demands of almost any pallet handling requirement. With our range including Rough Terrain, Galvanised, Semi-Electric, Electric, Scissor Lift, Heavy Duty, Mini, Narrow, Extra Long and the very versatile Adjustable Fork models, BiGDUG is confident that it can match a pallet truck to any commercial use.
Lower, single product weights and order picking in the factory, warehouse or retail outlet are addressed with our platform trucks, pallet cages, roll containers and shelf trolleys.
For single person handling and simple practicality, there is little to match the cost effective value of the sack truck. Our entry level Standard Sack Truck features pneumatic tyres, a strong tubular steel construction and a load capacity of 150kgs. This hugely popular sack truck is nevertheless available at a market-beating price and used in factories, warehouses, office buildings and courier van deliveries. But whether you want a standard sack truck, a sack truck with pneumatic or puncture-proof tyres, a lightweight aluminium sack truck or even a sack truck designed for a specific purpose – such as a Stairclimber or Chair-Shifter - BiGDUG will always have it available from stock.
Whereas the kind of truck or trolley you choose for the workplace will need to be for a job-specific use, the trolley used in the home is often for more general use. Our light tray trolleys are therefore available in stainless steel, chrome or plastic but are still suitable for the either the home or the office. Our wheelbarrows and garden trolleys are similarly suitable for commercial or domestic use.
Injuries resulting from heavy handling and lifting are largely preventable so contact our Customer Services Team on (or e-mail us at www.bigdug.co.uk) to discuss the suitability of our handling products for your business needs and let us help you prevent avoidable injuries to your staff and unnecessary damage to your products.
