Forklifts: The Ultimate Tool

Categories: Tags:

used forklift suppliersLike a carpenter, we storage aficionados have an array of tools.

Arguably one of the more important tools is lift equipment…forklifts.

A good forklift is not only essential for your daily operations, but also for your financial health. The liabilities in forklift operation are enormous and can be very costly if something goes wrong. That’s why it’s always important to maintain, service and inspect your lift equipment, so your bases are covered.

Having an up-to-date, capable forklift ensures the safety of your employees, and also takes the guesswork out of the equation. You won’t have to wonder if the hydraulics are capable of the job, you won’t have to worry if it can handle the loads it’s carrying. There’s a sense of peace of mind with upgraded equipment.

If you’ve done these steps, but you’ve completely used up the operating life of your forklift, Yankee Supply has an ever-changing inventory that can replace your forklift for a healthy discount. We have many used stackers, forklifts, and other lifting equipment, and if we don’t have something to your liking in our inventory, we have the connections and ability to get you exactly what you need!

Using a Hoist To Organize Your Warehouse

Categories: Tags:

Hoists and roof storage are an excellent way of utilizing all of your warehouses’ available space. double-girder-electric-hoist

Now that winter is here all kinds of equipment needs to be safely stored before the snow moves in.  The warehouse probably looks a bit disheveled with seasonal projects piled on top of each other but somehow you need to get this all organized enough to pull a large, industrial vehicle inside when the snow flies

Hoists are a huge help toward getting that warehouse organized, as well as accessing stock stored up high.  They are easy to operate and easy on your back as well.

A hoist means no more climbing up a ladder to get to your inventory.  The safest way to do it is with a hoist.  A used hoist from Yankee Supply is inexpensive as well, meaning that you can get a few of them to really maximize the space that you already have.

A manual hoist is perfect for raising things like canoes, or similarly sized objects off the ground.  By mounting the hoist securely onto rafters or any ceiling, it will safely hold large bulky items and get them out of the way.  In most warehouses, boats can be hoisted up and you can easily park a vehicle underneath them.  Now that is saving space!  A hoist is also great for storing large decking and seasonal merchandise not likely to sell over the Winter months.

If you need to move or suspend heavier objects consider an electric hoist.  These wonderful power hoists save time and keep you very safe because of a remote control used to operate them.

Whether you need to lift out a car engine, get some lumber off the ground or simply move something heavy from point A to point B, utilizing an electric hoist will save you time and keep you safe.
