When we refer to trucks in the materials handling industry, we are referring to a wheeled platform used to convey loads in a warehouse or factory setting. Sometimes these trucks can be motorised, and they come in many shapes and sizes, depending on their end use. Action Handling has supplied trucks to industries across the UK for over forty years, and we have a large range of different types available.

Fibreboard trucks
Our fibreboard trucks come in several different forms, from a lightweight tapered version to a reinforced dropside model, all suitable for light office or warehouse work. Due to the lightweight material, fibreboard trucks are easy to manoeuvre and can be stacked inside one another for storage. Yet fibreboard is surprisingly durable, making them an investment that will last.

Electric Powered Trucks
These are the motorised trucks mentioned in the opening paragraph, and are ideal for when large weights need to be moved. With a capacity of up to 500kg, our electric powered trucks can handle most moving jobs, while options such as mesh sides or box body additions mean you can get the right truck for the job. We can also customise these models to suit, including the addition of lockable security cages or shelf trays.

Plastic Trucks
Our plastic trucks are extraordinarily versatile pieces of equipment, suited to food handling, medical waste, laundry loads and just about anything else you can think of. The plastic interior makes them easy to clean, while the option of adding a galvanised base for heavy loads or a plastic base for wet loads just adds to their versatility.

This is just a small sampling of our complete range – visit our website or check out our catalogue for the full truck experience. At Action Handling, our years of experience mean that we can help you find the right solution for your business needs. After all, when it comes to helping our customers, we don’t truck around.
