Believe it or not, virtually everything that goes into a new car can be made into something else at the end of the vehicle’s lifetime. Everything from the car’s batteries and oil, to the tyres and the foam in the seats can be ground up, melted and re-used. Manufacturers design vehicles with a ‘lifecycle’ in mind, which means that some parts of an unwanted car can be taken out and reused, and others can be recycled.

Forklifts are seriously misunderstood, as I have come to find out in recent weeks… and someone could be forgiven for having the wrong idea. I mean, whether it’s a Reach Truck, Counter-Balance Forklift or Power Pallet, but to name some of the types of forklift available, the one thing they all have in common is they do heavy lifting. Many people think of Forklifts as the work-horse which keeps warehouses and industry supplied and operating, but these machines are capable of so much more than just brute force.
