Moving office equipment is a laborious task, and shifting lighter boxes and computers alone is enough to put a strain on anyone’s back. When it comes to heavier equipment, such as photocopiers, printers and more, it’s even harder. Introduce vans and other vehicles to the mix, and you have a different challenge completely.

Which raises the question, how do you get these items to ground level, and more importantly, how do you do it safely?

With this being said, Stanley present the PowerMate LiftGate.

This is a very realistic option to help make the van loading and unloading process a lot easier and more importantly, safer. The LiftGate is an internally-fitted lifting arm that enables the operator to manoeuvre servers, photocopiers, drinks dispensers and beyond from the rear or side door of a van onto the ground level with one simple movement. This lifting device takes up minimal space inside the van, and is protected from the elements unlike traditional external lifts. The swing arm allows you to position the load inside the vehicle and saves the need to manhandle the load.

There are 2 versions offered: the LG-3 and LG-6. Both versions can be equipped with either a left or right-hand mounting configuration and can lift 114kg-227kg respectively.

Once the load is out of the vehicle, it then needs to be transported into the new office, environment. This itself is a challenging task, especially if there are stairs involved.

That’s where Stanley stairclimbers come in. We offer tailor-made stair climbing solutions that are designed to make life for those who handle the various office goods even easier.

The first product we offer that is ideal for office products is the Sprinter, which is a compact, ergonomic and ultra-lightweight powered stairclimber.

With a weight capacity of up to 170kg, this model is of lightweight aluminium construction. It’s light enough to be carried, and small enough to fold down easily into the boot of a van, truck or lorry, depending on your fleet. It can easily take care of stairs desks, drawers and more attached to its secure systems frame.

The second powered stairclimbing solution we present is the PowerMate Pogo. This light-duty motorised hand truck is commonly used to move slightly smaller items, such as cabinets, and it reduces property and product damage through ensuring a strong level of control is able to be maintained by the operator.
