Commercial property prices are on the rise, and Pallet Trucks UK is helping businesses beat soaring rents with a range of folding pallet trucks. Engineered to save space and augment operations, the portable pallet trucks are ideal for businesses that are short on space but high on contracts.
According to the latest figures from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors sector market survey report, demand for commercial property has risen for the eleventh consecutive quarter. Simultaneously, available space has fallen for the ninth successive period. Going forward, 46% of survey respondents are forecasting higher rents over the next 12 months.
“The results of the latest survey suggest the price of commercial real estate will continue to move higher over the next 12 months and quite possibly by another 10%,” explains Simon Rubinsohn, RICS chief economist.
While commercial rents are on the rise, the UK economy is also on the road to recovery. This means businesses will enjoy the opportunity to take on more work, increase profits and expand operations. Rather than cancel out revenue by bearing the brunt of rising commercial rents, Pallet Trucks UK is suggesting equipment buyers leverage the space saving benefits of portable pallet trucks.
With a 300 kg lift capacity, total weight of 31 kg and dimensions of 420 x 1100 mm, the ML0311 Portable Folding Pallet Truck can be easily manoeuvred and packed away to a fraction of its assembled size. For an even lighter and more compact option weighing in at just 26 kg and measuring 420 x 800 mm, the ML0308 Portable Pallet Truck is a shrewd upgrade.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Pallet Trucks UK, says, “Commercial rents are on their way up, and unfortunately the latest industry figures don’t indicate that they’ll be dropping anytime soon. That said, the UK economy is on the brink of a comeback which means businesses are set to enjoy an influx of work. Rather than fork out for extra space we’re urging equipment buyers to consider investing in space saving equipment that boosts productivity without taking up unnecessary space.”
Designed to save space yet still offer operators all the efficiency of their fixed counterparts, the folding pallet trucks are a valuable asset when it comes to making the most out of every square metre. Portable and lightweight, the folding trucks can be easily packed away when not in use. Rather than allocate a large space to housing everyday equipment businesses can simply opt for space saving alternatives that boast a significantly smaller footprint.
“Intelligent equipment choices play an integral role in helping goods oriented businesses maximise every inch of space available to them,” says Chesworth.
