Posted on

When talking about the handling of goods in and around a warehouse or factory, you will almost always require some sort of heavy duty machinery to be able move around everything in an efficient manner. Out of all types of machinery that are suitable for this job, forklifts are perhaps the most useful ones, due to their versatility. 

Another thing of note about forklifts in general is the fact that is quite a lot of variety when it comes to selecting one that fits your own requirements and needs. For this reason alone, you may want to know a little more about the main types of forklifts out there, either because you want to purchase one for yourself or because you are unsure about what to select for your next forklift hire:

  • Counterbalance Forklifts – This is the type of forks that people are commonly used to seeing, since they have the most widespread use in many light and heavy duty operations. They are quite easy to operate, since the two forks mounted in front of the vehicle can be directed to the exact location of a cargo load for lifting. Some models come with only three wheels, which gives them maximum manoeuvrability and a small turning radius for operating in cramped spaces without issues.
  • Industrial Reach Forklifts – These are some of the best forklifts out there for handling cargo in an industrial area. The main thing of note about them is their extended reach and lift height, which allows them to move cargo in a warehouse in a variety of different situations. Industrial reach forks are also further classified into a few different types themselves. Stand-up trucks are very common, but are limited to a single load per bay, while double-deep trucks have longer forks and forklift attachments allowing them to reach multiple loads in one go.
  • Rough Terrain Forklift – Sometimes, it may be required to have forklifts that can handle transportation of goods across very rough and disconnected terrain. For this kind of outdoor applications, you have to rely on a special rough terrain forklift that has special inflatable tyres, a powerful engine capable of higher speeds and a robust frame construction that can handle any type of environment, ranging from mud to snow.
  • Side loaders – This type of forklift Perth is meant to be used in narrow aisles, with the forks being mounted on the side of the machine instead of being affixed to the front. They are commonly used to handle long pieces of steel sheets, logs, pipes and other things that would be very difficult to move with a front loading fork without losing its stability.

Posted on


Anniversaries are important for every couple and these events will bring lovely memories of the day they became husband and wife. Most of the couples limit the celebrations to their families but special anniversaries such as ten years, twenty-five years and etc. are mostly celebrated in comparatively bigger scales.

Guest List

The venue

You can also visit them and see which one would be the most suitable out of them. It is better to start hunting for function venues at least a month before the event since these places tend to be booked by others as well. And if you are too late you might not be able to book the best place even if you like it.


The cost should be estimated before anything. You can start by listing down the initial expenses from your side before consulting an event planner. If the cost is too much you can go through the list of guests and make alterations and find small function venues accordingly. 


Pick a theme that is appropriate and communicate it to the event planner. There are traditional themes for each anniversary and if you want you can even pick one out of those. For an instance, silver can be used for the twenty fifth anniversary. This will help you in getting your decorations done properly.

Food and entertainment

Decide on what to offer the guests such as a small snack or drinks and on a playlist of desired music to be played. Also, you can have a custom-made cake which you can cut during the event. Speak to the hotel or the venue administration and get information about food and decide food and dessert items that you would want to have in your menu for the event.

Apart from the above, you can offer keepsakes for the guests and if you like to you can mention a dress-code in the invitation. It is also important that you hire a professional photographer since you and your family will be too busy having fun. Planning things ahead will help you host a stress-free anniversary celebration which you can enjoy with you loved ones.
