Kingsbury Builders Merchants' in London's Kentish Town replaced its counterbalance truck with a Combilift 4-way forklift and has improved health and safety procedures. Incoming deliveries are offloaded on the road by the entrance, and long loads used to be lifted across the pavement and over a 5ft wall with the counterbalance truck. These can now be carried on the truck's platform and manoeuvred sideways into the yard.

The Combilift's 4-way ability has also been able to increase the amount of product stored by 60%, avoiding substantial outlay on new premises. The limited manoeuvrability of Kingsbury's counterbalance truck left no space to install racking to accommodate timber packs which typically come in lengths of up to 6m.
