If you are looking for a moffett truck, chances are you will have to buy more than one to meet your business needs. While one moffett is enough for a small business operation, medium and larger operations require a fleet of forklifts. The more goods you need to move and the faster you need to move them, the higher the number of piggyback forklifts you need to keep up a productive pace. At Trucks Forklifts, we sell used moffetts in excellent condition to ensure our customers don’t run into issues during operation. However, one of the most common questions we get from our customers is how many moffetts they should buy to meet their business’s needs. While there is no straightforward answer to this question as many factors determine how many forklifts you need, it mostly depends on the type of work you need to get done. And this article will explain how many moffetts you may need to fulfill your routine business needs, so read on. 

If You Are Looking For A Moffett Truck For Sale, You May Need More Than One (Here is how you can tell how many you need)

When your business needs increase, so does the fleet of equipment. If you are looking for a moffett truck for sale, you may need to stop and think about how many you need to get the job done efficiently. Putting all the load on a single forklift will slow down the work speed and wear down the moffett faster. However, dividing it over multiple machines can make sure that the work gets done quickly. So without further ado, here is how you can get an idea of how many moffetts you may need to buy:

Size of your warehouse: If you need the moffett for a warehouse, the size of your warehouse can be a good indicator of how many you need. If you are currently using a single forklift to get your work done and the machine is working for more than 8 hours a day, you need more than one to get the job done efficiently.

You have more than one flatbed truck: Since you will need a truck to mount the moffetts on, the more trucks you own, the more forklifts you can mount on them. If you have a single truck at your disposal at the moment, but your warehouse is too large, then you may need to get a moffett and flatbed combo. We have flatbed trucks with moffett truck mount for sale if you need to upgrade your fleet. Or you can pick any truck you want, and our services department can fit a mounting mechanism on it to make it piggyback forklift compatible.

You are planning to expand your operations: If you had been using a single moffett until now, but you are planning on expanding your operations in the near future, you will need more moffetts for the increased workload. So a good rule of thumb is to add one more forklift to your fleet every time you need twice as much loading capacity as before.
