Pump Trucks

When using a pallet racking system, you will need an effective way to manoeuvre the pallets throughout the production flow. For businesses and companies with limited space in their respective storage facilities, forklifts and other large machinery are not the most suitable options, both in terms of cost and space available. At Midlands Shelving & Racking, we offer a range of pump trucks for different sizes and uses, depending on your stock profile.

We offer a range of manual and electric pallet trucks to suit your needs as well as your budget. Utilising a pallet truck within your production process provides you with a low maintenance, manually operated and cost-effective alternative within a commercial or warehouse pallet racking system.

The blades of the pallet trucks simply slide under the pallet and lift it sufficiently off the ground to make movement possible. They’re a useful and slender addition for moving loads and products manually around facilities, eliminating the need for stronger and cumbersome machinery.

From wide, long, standard, or short pallet trucks, Midlands Shelving & Racking are a leading supplier in the West Midlands, and we are here to help increase your storage solution to the maximum efficiency.

Benefits of Using a Pump Truck


Using a pallet pump truck in your production process can increase efficiency. They can be stored under pallets or shelving systems out of the way to create additional space and to adhere to safety regulations in keeping gangways and aisles clear.


A pump truck is a relatively simple device to transport one or more pallets without having to use a forklift, helping to improve employee safety as well as helping to reduce the risk of employee injuries.


A cost-effective alternative to forklifts, pump pallet trucks are a simple and efficient method of handling goods. At Midlands Shelving & Racking, our pallet trucks come in a variety of options, designed to your specifications.
