Over the last few years or so it has been normality among the users of pallet trucks and across the industry that “When they’re gone, they’re gone” pallet trucks became so cheap that when they break it can be cheaper to buy a new one then buy the spare parts, wait for them to arrive, fit them only to find something else wrong with it requiring more parts and more time, it was simple; buy a new one!

Sadly this is no longer the case for any pallet trucks manufactured in China (which is probably 85% of brands out there). This was implemented after February 14th when the European Commission of Trade Protectorate self-initiated an Anti-Dumping investigation into the import of hand pallet trucks from the peoples republic of China, this also included the main parts of the truck such as the pump and chassis to avoid people trying to import the parts and assemble them in the UK (nice trying!!).

Think about it…without customers, a business wouldn’t succeed? So why wouldn’t you put the customer's needs and wants as your first priority in any situation? This is where many businesses fail to recognise that customer service is one of the most valued assets a business can have and how it can make or break a purchase or even lead to repeat custom.

What deems good customer service?

Good customer service is when the customer is completely satisfied from the enquiry right through to the delivery of the product. This sounds easy enough but stating how to give good customer service is very different to following it through consistently. Repeat business is the backbone of selling to consumers as one off purchases are typically the most important as a fantastic customer service experience will implore the customer to be more inclined to repeat a purchase in ...
