Pushing Cars and Trucks
Moving vehicles around crowded lots or in the tight confines of a manufacturing plant is one of the material handling solutions available from DJ Products. The CarCaddy car pusher instantly takes the stress, strain and difficulty out of moving cars, trucks, busses or RVs even in the tightest of quarters.
If your cart, car, or piece of equipment has all straight wheels or is on a rail, then the following vehicle pusher products will help solve applications where no turning is required, or an operator will turn the wheels while a CarCaddy vehicle pusher pushes from behind, as in the case of pushing a bus down an assembly line.
This vehicle pusher solutions also help to prevent damages associated with moving a stalled vehicle. In cases where manpower is not available, another vehicle is used to bump up against the back end of the stalled vehicle, causing dents, scratches, and cracks on both vehicles. The front push pad of the vehicle pusher is made of a soft, durable, padded material designed to preserve the paint and integrity of the back end of the stalled vehicle.
Car Pusher Prevents Damage
Car manufacturers, car lots and mechanics all face a unique challenge in doing business successfully. Employees in each business must maneuver through very crowded environments without doing any damage to the vehicle they are handling or to other vehicles that they may encounter. In many cases these vehicles aren’t full assembled or are not fully operational which leaves employees to struggle with the task of getting them from point A to point B without being able to drive them.
Manually pushing a vehicle across any distance is a difficult and strenuous undertaking. Loss of control for any length of time or for any reason could result in serious damage that could cost the business hundreds or even thousands of dollars to repair.
Moving vehicles around crowded lots or in the tight confines of a manufacturing plant is much easier with access to the right equipment like the car pusher from DJ Products. The car pusher instantly takes the stress, strain and difficulty out of moving cars, trucks, busses or RVs even in the tightest of quarters.
The car pusher has a soft, durable push pad that adjusts to completely protect the body of the vehicle during movement. The smooth, even acceleration of this versatile piece of equipment allows the operator to maintain complete control during short or long moves. This helps to prevent damage to the vehicle being pushed as well as all other vehicles on the lot.
Another huge benefit of using a car pusher on auto lots and service centers is employee safety. The car pusher allows for virtually labor free movement of heavy vehicles which keeps valuable employees safe and injury free. Investing in a car pusher can save service centers and auto lots money by eliminating damage caused by manual movement of vehicles and minimizing expensive work related injury claims.

Car and Truck Pusher Increases Productivity
The pace can be very fast and the labor can be very hard at a mechanic’s shop or car dealership where the right equipment isn’t readily available. If employees are required to manually push heavy cars, trucks or buses into bays for repair each vehicle will require more time to complete and will create another chance for injury.
Employees who are required to manually push vehicles around a crowded lot could also very easily cause damage to other vehicles. When other vehicles or equipment on the lot become damaged the money and time required to make the repairs comes directly out of the shops profits.
The best way to ensure that employees are able to work as efficiently and safely as possible and that other property on the lot doesn’t get damaged is by having the proper equipment for moving vehicles. The car and truck pusher from DJ Products can immediately transform the operations at a mechanic shop by allowing employees to move stalled vehicles faster, safer and easier than they could manually. The car and truck pusher can easily handle heavy vehicles weighing up to ten thousand pounds without any stress or risk of injury to the operator.
In addition to keeping employees safer the truck pusher also makes the vehicles on the lot safer as well. The soft, adjustable and durable pad on the truck pusher is designed to contour to the rear bumper of a wide variety of vehicles to prevent the possibility of scratches, dents or dings while pushing. The fact that the employees will be able to push the vehicles in a completely controlled fashion also helps to greatly minimize the risk of damage to other vehicles on the lot. Providing employees with a truck pusher is an affordable way for mechanics and auto lot owners to keep their employees, customers and merchandise safe while increasing the overall speed of operation.
