Material Handling Equipment Gives You a Helping Hand
As a busy admin, you know just how important it is to have the right tools on hand to get the job done easily. From old customer records to out-of-date invoices, there are always things around your office that need to get boxed up and moved to storage. Adding wheels and casters to the bottom of a wooden filing cabinet lets you move it easily from the accounting department to the sales department. Heavy-duty bungee cords keep boxes in place when moving them around the office, warehouse or storage space.
Make Moving Items a Breeze
In your warehouse, an order picker can use a utility cart to load up items on an invoice and swiftly take them to the shipping area. A cart with multiple levels makes it easy to gather up more than one invoice at a time and keep it organized before taking it to packing. A Safeco hand truck works as both a cart and dolly to move boxes, plastic bins and other heavy items from one office to another or taking items out to a customer's car.
Lifting the Impossible
Sometimes, there are things around the office or in the warehouse that require something a little tougher than a hand truck to lift and move, and that's when a pulley or hoist comes in handy. Keeping a hoist in the warehouse makes it easy to lift a piece of machinery weighing up to 2 tons. There are hoists and pulleys to pick up 1 ton, 1 1/2 tons and 2 tons. CM offers a hoist with chain, measuring 16 1/4 inches, attached for additional length and protection between the item and the hoist.
Just Add Wheels to Move Critical Documents and Files
How many times have you pushed and pulled a two-drawer filing cabinet down the hall between customer service and the sales department and thought: there has to be an easier way? At Quill, you can buy a set of casters and get someone from maintenance to install them on the bottom of all sorts of wooden furniture to make it mobile. You can buy a set of casters to replace the missing one on that rolling cart that lists to the right. If a damaged wheel on a hand truck keeps it from working properly, order a Harper truck wheel to get it back in shape.
Lift the Really Heavy Stuff
If your company needs to lift and lower heavy items, then you need to stock a couple of jack stands on hand. You can keep a couple in the warehouse and one in storage for emergencies. Sumner offers jacks that can hold 2,000 pounds and 2,500 pounds. If storage space is at a premium in your warehouse, Sumner offers a folding jack that can still raise up 2,500 pounds. If you're looking for additional stability, the Sumner adjust-a-roll stand has a base with four prongs.
