Why Bespoke Tipping Skips Are Often Best

Everyone needs a multipurpose industrial tipping skip.

Custom-designed tipping skips offer the opposite of a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Businesses can master their niche with state-of-the-art designs manufactured with industry-leading technology. 

So, why are bespoke forklift attachments such as tipping skips often best? You’re about to find out with the help of Forklift Skip Market. 

What are forklift attachments?

It’s impossible to discuss manual handling without talking about forklift attachments. Without them, handling heavy loads would be a very difficult, laborious task. 

You can purchase regular attachments for waste handling, cages and stillages for goods that can’t be transported on wooden pallets or crane jibs, hooks and lifting beams of various shapes and sizes. 

Owning a diverse selection of forklift attachments has many advantages: you can seamlessly move from one job to another using machinery specially designed for the task at hand. This will, in turn, increase productivity and streamline business operations. 

But what if no standard forklift attachments meet your needs and wants?

What are bespoke forklift attachments?

Bespoke forklift attachments are exactly what they sound like: custom-created products tailored to specific purposes. Regardless of size or sector, each organisation has unique issues to conquer. 

When it comes to manual handling, it may be resource-saving and more cost-effective to invest in technology individually engineered to solve the problem. That’s where we come in! 

Companies like ours take the time to collaborate with businesses on a one-to-one basis, forming solutions and creating designs using all the latest technology. 

What are the benefits of bespoke forklift attachments? 

So, why should you consider investing in bespoke forklift attachments? There are many reasons, but we’ve managed to compile them into one list: 

1. Collaboration with an expert team

From start to finish, you’ll work with a dedicated design and development team (who collectively boast 100 years of engineering experience!). 

Our staff are highly experienced, trained and skilled in what they do. Investing in bespoke attachments benefits business and may give you greater insight into the engineering side. 

Pick our team's brains during a holistic, on-site consultation where we want to know more about your needs. 

2. Full approval process

Our customer-driven approach to attachment creation puts you at the helm. 

By using SolidWorks design technology, you can view photorealistic images and view, interrogate, and amend your product before final approvals and manufacturing. 

3. Strength and safety tested

Once you’ve given our design the go-ahead and the initial manufacturing process is complete, we’ll conduct numerous strength and safety tests on your attachments. 

Those results will then be stress-analysed to guarantee compatibility with current health and safety requirements. 

4. Made to measure

Sometimes, ‘off the shelf’ products do more harm than good. 

Forcing an existing part to do a job it’s not suited to can become a health and safety issue or even damage your existing equipment. By creating a bespoke attachment, you can rest assured that the job will get done in the safest, most efficient manner possible. 

5. 24/7 support

If you have any issues, queries or would like some general advice, our customer support team is waiting at the other end of the phone. Call us any time to discuss your project needs, and we’ll be happy to help. 

How are bespoke forklift attachments created?

By this point, you might ask yourself, ‘how are bespoke forklift attachments created?’

Every company’s manufacturing methods are unique. However, at Forklift Skip Market, we create our bespoke forklift attachments using a concept development and customer approval process.

To get the ball rolling, we talk more about our client's wants and needs. Why are they interested in purchasing bespoke forklift attachments? What daily tasks and business processes do they need this attachment to fulfil? What vehicles do they currently own? 

With this information in mind, we can use SolidWorks design technology to put your ideas on the page. 

Then, to bring them to life, we’ll use CAD software and produce a selection of animations and photo-realistic images to ensure your custom attachment can do what it’s designed for. 

We’ll show you the finished product before manufacturing as part of our customer approval process: if you’re unhappy or want to change an element of the design, you can simply let us know, and we’ll get to work. 

All bespoke forklift attachments must be put through stringent stress and safety testing. 

We’ll analyse the capabilities and safety of your custom forklift attachment according to current Health & Safety regulations so that when we deliver your design, you can feel assured it’s performing at the highest capacity.
