Are all new Pallet Jacks the same?
Jul 16, 2018

This blog focuses a lot on helping folks be as efficient as possible when having to repair their pallet jacks.  

BUT - Sometimes the jack is just dead.  No number of helpful tips, perfectly priced kits or incredibly helpful customer service reps will save this pile of junk.

We get it.

But what is the time crunched busy person supposed to do?  The internet is full of cheap jacks.  What's really the difference?

Here are some important factors to consider when looking at buying a new jack...

1st - You get what you pay for.  Seriously. Cost should honestly NOT be the only factor in your decision making process.  Why?  Because far too often we hear the frustration in a customer's voice when they call 6-12 months after purchasing a pallet jack and the handle bent, or it won't lift. 

We are pretty awesome with our replacement parts coverage (have you read the post about how we can help you ID your replacement parts?) but no one wants to work on a new piece of equipment that soon.

2nd- Does the company you are considering carry replacement parts? Do they have real people you can talk to who can help you find what you need?

3rd - What are the terms of the warranty?  Is there a warranty?  Does the company you want to order from carry replacement parts?


Fast Lift Parts is the perfect company to order your new pallet jacks from!

1. Although we are not the cheapest (and honestly don't want to be), you'll be hard pressed to find a jack that has the same quality for a lower price.

2. We carry all the parts here in our warehouse.  You can easily order via phone, fax or online.  Heck, if you're local come pay us a visit and/or send us your will call order.  Our casa is your casa (between 8am-4pm)

3. We offer a 3 year limited warranty.  Why is this important?  Because this is our jack, and we sell all the replacement parts so we can send out warranty replacement parts same day.  QA issues are few and far between but you can always trust that we will get you taken care of! 

The new Valu-Jack 2.0 is better than ever. Each unit features a cast iron pump for superior long term reliability. Another improvement we've made is a reinforced handle base with an ergonomic rubber grip.
