Lift Assist


Our Lift Assist service, for pallets weighing between 751kg and 1000kg, offers a safer method of delivering heavier pallets using a tail lift. Vehicles are equipped with a power assisted pump truck for greater control and manoeuvrability.

Innovating in safety

Palletline are continuing to change the face of the pallet industry, with our revolutionary and award-winning Lift Assist initiative. By reducing the maximum weight of a standard tail lift delivery to 750kg, we have reduced the risk of damage or injury to Palletline employees, the receiver’s employees and equipment by heavy and dangerous loads. With an increasing number of deliveries requiring tail lifts and pump trucks to residential areas and private addresses, the pallet industry has been presented with new and difficult challenges.

Palletline has led a communal view amongst members of the APN and has taken steps to improve safety and wellbeing of staff when delivering every pallet. The focus has been developed from the driver to also improve the education of our customers, with Palletline offering support and advice for customers to ensure they are using the correct packaging and manifested weights. It is now the responsibility of the consigner to ensure freight is correctly manifested, an area of this sector that dramatically needed improvement. Lift assist is simple, efficient and safe. Another essential and forward thinking move from Palletline.

If you regularly despatch pallets weighing over 750kg for a standard tail lift delivery, please talk to your local Palletline member. They’ll be able to take you through your pallet delivery options and offer great advice and tips on correct freight presentation to ensure your pallets are despatched in the safest manner.
