To start with it’s vital you know what the materials handling equipment you’re looking to purchase is going to be used for. Having a clear understanding of its primary uses will help you select a product suitable for the job you have in mind. Because, let’s be honest you don’t want to be wasting money on a product that doesn’t meet your demands, so do your homework prior to splashing the cash.

Be sure to consider size, accessibility and if it’s going to be used to transport products from A to B!

Is it Safe?

For those working in the food distribution or healthcare industries it is important the materials handling equipment you are purchasing is safe, secure and meets all the required legislations.

Here at Rollstore we use the finest materials to construct all our materials handling equipment therefore you can guarantee it is built to stand the test of time and in line with the latest legislation.

Would you benefit from a bespoke design?

If you can’t find materials handling equipment that meets your business requirements then perhaps you’d benefit from a bespoke design! Using the latest 3D CAD design software here at Rollstore we have the ability to design, develop and manufacture bespoke materials handling equipment to aid your business.

How long will you be using it for?

Knowing how long you’ll need specific materials handling equipment is highly beneficial. In some cases you may only need specific products for a limited period of time perhaps because of the time of year or a sudden rise in sales. Therefore it seems pointless purchasing materials handling equipment outright, which is why we offer a comprehensive rental service.

Offering you fantastic savings we provide state of the art materials handling equipment on short term and long term deals, perfect for businesses with a tight budget.
