Birmingham-based Ryan’s Removals and Storage provide a huge range of removal and storage services to businesses and private customers in the UK and beyond.
Following a huge demand for storage space, Ryan’s Removals added a mezzanine floor to its facilities. This allowed Ryan’s to make the most of its space, doubling the number of units available to meet the growing demand.
However, it quickly became apparent that employees and customers struggled to take their belongings to the upper floor, posing a serious health and safety threat.
To ensure the mezzanine floor could be used safely and effectively, Ryan’s Removals asked Penny Hydraulics to assess their needs and provide a viable solution.
As Ryan’s had never needed a lift before, the team at Ryan’s were unsure of exactly what they needed.
They approached Penny Hydraulics to advise on the best solution and provide a goods lift that would improve usability and meet health and safety guidelines.
The key challenge was ensuring the lift could be used by anyone. As the general public would be using the lift on a daily basis, the solution needed to be straightforward to use.
As well as choosing an easy-to-use product, we trained employees to use the lift, allowing them to assist customers that may struggle.
As a busy storage facility, Ryan’s Removals needed the lift as soon as possible so customers could access units and business could continue as usual. Additionally, any future maintenance or repairs of the lift must be dealt with quickly to guarantee business continuity.
Our experts visited Ryan’s Removals storage facility to assess its needs and recommended a Mezz Pro - 500kg goods lift. This solution was installed and ready to use less than 6 weeks.
This easy to use lift holds up to 500kg, allowing safe access to the upper floor. As a result, customers have an improved experience and business is much more efficient.
Not only has the lift improved the overall health and safety of the facility, but the convenience of the lift is a huge selling point for customers, putting Ryan’s Removals above competitors.
“ “Penny Hydraulics were honest and open with the questions that we had. They really made us feel really at ease. They were very efficient in getting the lift down here and showing us how it worked.
