The Top British Roll Pallet Product Vendors Compared
The UK Roll Pallet Market – A Supplier Comparison
With so many roll cage and UK pallet vendors out there, it can be hard to know if you’re getting the best deal or not. Here at RollPallet UK, we’re working hard to ensure that you get the quality and service you deserve – but how do our competitors compare?
In this article, we’ll make a high-level comparison of some of the best-known British vendors on the market, diving into the quality, service, and overall price of each.
So, without further ado, let’s jump in!
Big Dug is a UK-based company, with its primary warehouse just outside of London.
They have a broad range of roll pallets and cages available to purchase on the BigDug online store – but how do they compare?
The quality seems fine for the price that you’re paying; however, if you need anything larger than 2000kg in load capacity, you’re going to be spending a lot more than the RollPallet UK price for an equivalent product.
Big Dug’s quality is acceptable for wood pallet users, but if you’re looking to purchase a roll cage or other material handling equipment, you’re able to find better choices elsewhere.
Big Dug has a decent range of products, with an online store that is easy to navigate. There are some questions about the quality – but for wood pallets, it seems reasonable enough.
Through several online reviews, it appears that Big Dug’s service can be challenging to get in touch with via phone, but they have a decent online presence to their credit.
Big Dug is more expensive than most across the board – so it’s clear that they do not compare well on price and value. Matched with some of the other options we will look at in this list, Big Dug seems like an acceptable option for wood pallets.
However, as mentioned, there are better vendors out there when it comes to roll cages and material handling equipment that you’re going to want for your business.
AJ Products operates out of Yorkshire, with a warehouse in the same area.
They have an impressive range of roll pallets and cages available to purchase on their website, but they mainly specialise in office furniture, canteen furniture, lockers, and industrial storage solutions.
Does that mean they’re not a good option for roll cages and material handling equipment? Let’s find out!
AJ Products’ quality is better than Big Dug, but it can still be difficult to find reviews on the cage itself rather than just their office furniture solutions.
It seems like there are some mixed opinions out there, but the consensus seems to be that it’s worth a shot if you’re not looking for a huge load capacity.
AJ Products has an online store, with some good online reviews about their delivery speeds. However, when it comes to the service – the reviews are a bit more mixed. According to reviews on TrustPilot, their after-care service is definitely something that needs work.
If you’re looking to save yourself some hassle, it might be worth considering RollPallet UK where the service itself is one of our biggest advantages over competitors.
When it comes to cost, AJ Products’ prices are all over the map depending on what you’re looking for – but they don’t compare favourably against our own pricing or other vendors out there that specialise in roll container products and industrial material-handling equipment.
Reco Handling is based out of Stockport, but they have an impressive range of products available on their website.
They are a British vendor that specialises in roll cages, pallet racking, and a range of other products. Let’s dive in to see how they compare against the RollPallet UK standard!
Their quality is good, and they have a decent range of products available and in-stock.
However, because Reco Handling deals exclusively in material handling equipment – it’s difficult for them to compete with those who offer a broader range of solutions. As standalone roll pallet/container vendors, they’re a solid option on the quality-front.
Reco Handling seems to have some really great reviews on their service – and they offer affordable delivery options that you can choose from when it comes time to order your equipment.
However, their website seems a little outdated, and isn’t very user-friendly to navigate or shop online with.
Reco Handling is a bit more expensive than RollPallet UK for most of the material handling equipment they sell. Still, their prices are very affordable compared to Big Dug or AJ Products – which is definitely something that’s worth noting if you’re looking to save yourself some money!
They also do some fantastic weekly special offers, but it’s mostly granted on a first come, first serve basis.
If you need industrial supplies or office equipment, Manutan UK is one of the best places to go.
They have a great range available on their website, but they don’t specialise in roll cages or material handling equipment – so it’s difficult for them to compete with dedicated industry specialists in the space (like us!) who are experts when it comes to this type of product!
Let’s jump into how Manutan UK stack up in the market.
When it comes to quality, Manutan UK is a very reputable company that you can trust. However, they don’t specialise in any type of industry or product. Their website boasts 50,000+ products on their store, but sometimes, this isn’t as great as it sounds.
In that regard, it’s difficult for them to compete with others on this list who have a very specific product that they’re experts in.
As far as online reviews go, Manutan UK has an excellent reputation for their customer service. However, they let themselves down when it comes to delivery. Several online reviews state they have experienced late deliveries, and that the products arrived damaged when they did eventually get there.
When it comes to service, we firmly believe that RollPallet UK has the edge on Manutan UK – but they’re both great options depending on your industry and needs!
Manutan UK has some really great prices on their website, but again, it all depends on what you’re looking to purchase. They do have a good range of products available.
Still, because they don’t specialise in any one type of product, it’s difficult for them to compete with most British vendors who have a much better understanding of their product and how it’s best utilised.
Now comes the moment you have all been waiting for, last, but by no means least is our unbiased take on why we’re the best supplier for dedicated roll pallet products currently serving the UK market and beyond.
