In a nutshell, a Moffett fork lift is a small fork lift truck which is attached to the rear of a truck.
The Moffett fork lift is trailer mounted and travels with your freight, providing a self-drive vehicle for loading and unloading consignments when they reach their intended destination.
The beauty of Moffett fork lifts is the fact that they can be taken anywhere the truck travels, meaning that if the destination doesn’t have its own means of unloading, the Moffett fork lift can be quickly operational and the driver is able to carry out the task immediately and efficiently. They are ideal for remote sites and locations where no fork lift or loading bay is present.
What are the benefits of using a Moffett fork lift?
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a rise in the number of consignments being shipped from place to place as a result on people’s increased reliance on online shopping. Consequently, the use of Moffett fork lifts has also increased as more and more destinations start to receive deliveries, many of which do not have standard fork lifts on site to move loads around.
As a result, Moffett fork lifts provide the perfect solution.
Moffett fork lifts are extremely versatile due to their manoeuvrability and small size. This means they can be used in almost any situation to move heavy objects. From travelling from one end of a warehouse to another through to transporting goods on and off lorries, the uses for Moffett fork lifts are numerous.
Moffetts are all-wheel drive and road legal, they can be used across most types of surface, both indoor and outdoor. This means that deliveries and loads can be transported with ease, across any terrain or uneven surface where a standard fork lift may struggle. Unlike most fork lifts, a Moffett fork lift is extremely lightweight – making it ideal to be loaded onto the back of a lorry and moved elsewhere when required as well.
Additionally, the use of a Moffitt fork lift can help speed up processes and make logistical operations much more streamlined and efficient. It can help cut labour costs (as you don’t need specialist operators) and the vehicle can be used for a multitude of different reasons.
Moffetts are available on 13.6m or 10m urban curtainside trailers (with slide-roof option) or 10m flatbeds. Our trailers have rear steer for tight restriction access.
