New Racking System & Electric Forklift for Wokingham-Based Stunning Saunas

Stunning Saunas needed a smart storage and logistics system put in place for their luxury sauna business. We supplied a full new racking system and hired them a forklift truck to meet their specific requirements. 

 

Stunning Saunas supply the design and installation of luxury barrel wood saunas from their showroom and warehouse in Wokingham, Berkshire. As a fellow local business, they approached us for help with their storage and logistics operation. 

 

They were unsure of their specific requirement, but told us that the saunas they sell come flat-packed on large pallets up to 3000mm in length. These are then shipped to site for assembly by trained installers. With that in mind, Simon advised that they would need both a smart storage system and a forklift truck – both of which we could supply. 

 

We provided Stunning Saunas with a long-term hire on a 2.5t electric counterbalance forklift truck with a 5400mm lift height – with full maintenance for complete peace of mind and 2000mm fork extensions to handle the long loads.

 

Simon collaborated with the customer to design the racking. He explained, “I have some experience with slightly obscure racking layouts and this was one of them. I sourced the racking materials and then we subcontracted out the installation to a trusted partner, which we oversaw.” The final solution included double runs of racking to cope with the packaged saunas, allowing them to store over 40 saunas and other stock off-ground. To keep the layout flexible as Stunning Saunas continue to grow, we left space for the customer to build a mezzanine office and the potential to add more racking in the future.

 

We are delighted that the client is so happy with the result, and it’s been great to hear that the racking and the truck have been working fantastically for them for the past month.
