Safety and convenience are the name of the game when it comes to explaining just why businesses like yours use hand trucks on a regular basis. These two factors really go hand in hand; it is both easier and safer to move heavy equipment or items across your warehouse with the help of a hand truck. Without properly functioning hand trucks, you run the risk of employee injury, product damage, and slower service. Read on to find out more about the importance of hand trucks to your Maryland business.
Where can I purchase reliable, high quality hand trucks?
Hand trucks come in both steel and aluminum varieties, which are both designed to carry heavy weights with ease. The key advantage is that though hand trucks can carry and transport up to 500 pounds, the truck itself is comparatively lightweight; most weigh in under 25 pounds. The S.W. Betz Company has long been a distributor of one of the top names in the hand truck world: Magliner. Magliner trucks are durable, dependable, and expertly-designed for maneuverability.
