It is difficult to predict the life of the trolley. Nevertheless it is possible to act on their longevity and their performance on the ground thanks to a storage in the rules of the art. Our advices :
Always store the trolley in a closed, ventilated, dry and temperate environment (the trolley stored outdoors will have their surface harden and cracks may sometimes appear);
Do not store tires near a heat source or appliances that may cause sparks (soldering station, transformer, battery charger, etc.);
Always check that your surface is clean and does not show signs of oil, fuel or any other substance to avoid real dangers when you start the vehicle);
If you store your trolley for several months, do not stack them and prefer storage on Epsivol shelving. For better handling and easy loading, we advise you to wear gloves, work clothes and of course the use of our special tire trolley.
Windshields are, with the belt and the airbags, essential elements to avoid the ejection of the occupants and the crushing of the roof during an accident. A damaged windshield significantly reduces occupant safety. For this we help professionals to offer to their customers quality products. Properly stored, your windshields will ensure optimal user safety.
To avoid breakage, it is best to leave the original packaging, do not overlay the windshields (risk of cracking or scratching) and store them in a temperate room;
For storage, we recommend Epsivol compartment shelving. With this solution your stock and your staff will be protected;
For simplicity in inventory management, order windshields by brand and model.
Order the storage by reference, brand, type of parts, etc .;
The heaviest parts are to be stored first on the bottom of the rack. Then proceed with the placement of the low rotation parts. For simpler handling, parts with high rotation rates or those that are lighter should be stored at man's height;
Regarding the preparation flow, it is important to signal the aisles or equip your shelving with our pick-to-light solution (light guide system, consult us).
