Moving Heavy Loads Safely and Efficiently Just Got Easier with RJ Cox

4266987_mMoving a heavy load?  RJ Cox is at your service!  No, we did not branch our business into the moving industry.  But we do, however, know a quiet achiever with a low profile that often – because of its diminutive stature – goes unnoticed until it is called upon to move loads when others fail.

Who is this super-mover?  Well, its actually not a who.  Instead, it is a what.  When you need to move oversized machinery, large inventory, furniture, heavy equipment or just about anything else that presents a challenge, we highly recommend Pacific Load Skates.

These highly popular load movers are popular for a reason (actually, many reasons).  RJ Cox customers love Pacific Load Skates because they are versatile enough to handle just about anything you can throw at them and function well in a variety of work environments.  And because workplace safety is a necessity, you’ll be glad to know that these load skates offer a safe mechanism for transporting heavy loads from one location to another.

Let’s talk physics for a moment.  Yes, we know the very mention probably sends your brain and body into napping mode.  We’ve all done our fair share of sleeping in the physics classroom!  But maybe, while drifting in and out of daydreams, you did happen to catch the fact that friction plays a large part in the movement of objects. When you decrease friction, the ease of movement is increased.

The brilliance of these Pacific Load Skates is that they take advantage of this very physics concept.  These movers use a series of durable rollers to facilitate the moving process by reducing friction between the load you are moving and the surface you are moving it upon.  And remember when you thought you would never use physics once you ventured out into the “real” world?

Screen Shot 2013-03-25 at 4.11.25 PMThese load skates from RJ Cox come in a variety of sizes to ensure you can safely move loads of all sizes and weights.  For the safety of you and your team and to ensure you can spot them when you need them, Pacific Load Skates come in highly-visible colors.  RJ Cox also offers optional handles and turntables for each size load skate.

All kidding aside, these low profile load movers are an absolute must-have addition when your team members must move heavy objects.  They will improve workplace safety and improve productivity.  Want to learn more?  Contact your friendly RJ Cox representative today.




Pat Yourself on the Back – You’ve Helped RJ Cox Receive a Nomination for a Telstra Business Award!

9765411_mRecently, we gushed with excitement, tooted our own horn, and showed appreciation to all of our wonderful customers over being nominated and making the finals of the Best Small Business Awards at the Business Excellence Forum in Sydney.  Well, excuse us again as we break out the horn for a little more tooting!  Just when our heads started to shrink back to a normal size, RJ Cox learned that we were recently nominated for the Telstra Business Awards.

What are the Telstra Business Awards?  Instead of us trying to explain, why don’t we let the folks over at the awards website do the talking.  “Prestigious and coveted, the Awards program celebrates the country’s entrepreneurs and innovators. It offers a unique chance for small to medium businesses to be recognised for their hard work, commitment and of course, success.”

And we have to admit, the exposure and recognition are great.  However, we also hope to take home one of the top spots and to share part of the $500,000 worth of prizes.  Besides the prizes, this nomination also gives RJ Cox the opportunity to, “join the Telstra Australian Business Awards Network, allowing continued networking in a private and exclusive online environment.”

Here at RJ Cox, we are definitely excited to be a part of this highly-recognized and prestigious awards program.  But this success is also yours – our customers.  Without our great customers, we would never be successful enough to be nominated for any awards.  Serving you is what drives us day in and day out.

So, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to do what we enjoy and for helping RJ Cox continue to be nominated for great awards like this one.  And who knows, if we keep racking up the nominations and bring home a few big, shiny trophies, we might just have to have a big celebration.  We’ll pack the cool bins full of beer, break out the chocolate wheel and have one of our general purpose spill kits on site in case the celebration gets a little out of hand.

PS Clearly that’s not us in the wiggly thumbs up pics, that’s just a good looking bunch of people in a stock image 🙂

Wish us luck with the Telstra Business Awards.  Thank you for your support and help.  Now, let’s sit back, wait and get ready to celebrate!  What are you bringing to the party?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.


We love questions, contact us with any specific requirements you may have.

Take Home a Few RJ Cox Tote Boxes to Restore Sanity in Your Home

9227352_mA new Sony Playstation – the PS4 – is set to hit shelves in December just in time for Christmas in the United States.  The company just made the announcement recently as rumors had been flying all over the gaming community of late.  And no, your computer has not been hacked and you have not accidentally stumbled upon the wrong blog.

So why are we sharing video game news here on the RJ Cox blog?  Well, its simple.  With a new gaming system, comes new games – lots of new games.  And if you are like some of the parents here at RJ Cox, you have a child or children at home who clutter your home up with these video games.  And yes, there are plenty of parents out there that might be just as guilty of not picking up their clutter after they sneak in a few hours of video gaming after the kids go to bed..

This is where RJ Cox comes in the picture.  The son of one of our team members is a crazy video game addict.  And to make sure she didn’t pull her hair out because of all the video games strewn about her son’s room and anywhere else gaming was taking place, she decided to take home a few of our Tote Boxes to help restore a little sanity and order to her home.

There are many reasons why these storage containers are perfect for corralling video games.  These Tote Boxes feature solid injection molded construction which makes them very strong and very stable.  A byproduct of these benefits is that our Tote Boxes will hold up – even when packed full of heavy objects – when you stack them on top of each other.  RJ Cox also offers these storage containers in three different sizes so you can find the perfect fit for all your storage needs.

If you need to find a simple, safe way to declutter your home or office, these space-saving storage boxes are the perfect solution.  We’ve even heard rumors that you can use them to store other items besides video games.  And if your storage needs involve transporting or storing food, the Tote Boxes from RJ Cox fit the bill.  They are safe for storing meat, fish and other foods.
