Types of trolley

  • Platform

This is the largest group and the most diverse. This consists of a heavy platform base on top of four wheels or casters. It secures and carries loads. Platforms can be of different materials depending on the required carrying capacity. Handles are either single cased (and angled towards the user) or mounted at both ends. Most are open designs that allow more room for different sizes of goods and equipment, but you’ll also find caged platform trolleys used to transport smaller items.

  • Shelf

The design is similar to off-the-shelf trucks. These consist of two or more shelves that extend from a frame mounted on wheels or casters. Small items will be transported more organized thanks to the shelves. Variations like platform trolleys may have integrated handles within the frame or on both sides. Shelves themselves can be designed as flatbeds or with side rails and thicker and more durable surfaces (often top shelves) and can double as work areas.

A variety is found in workshops, laundry rooms, offices and schools, airports, hotels and restaurants for carrying tools, parts, clothing, linen, stationery and supplies, luggage, food and other items. Baskets, bins, drawers, cabinets and mesh cages make organizing materials easy and safe.

  • Hand truck

It consists of a solid base or platform and a reinforced frame sitting on two wheels. Variations of this design have produced models that specialize in tools, cylinders and drums, and furniture moving sets, among other models. Most wheels are made of durable metals and either polyurethane or rubber, depending on where they are used.

  • Executed

Powered models have to assist lifting, lowering, loading, unloading and transporting heavy objects. Electric motors are powered by one or more batteries. Variations include powered platform trucks to aid speed and safety in transport, and scissor lift trucks to lift and lower heavy loads to and from heights.

  • Folding

When space is at a premium, consider a foldable trolley. It doesn’t have to compromise on loading capacity compared to the standard variant, and includes the same durable materials and safety features. Portability is also improved, and you can take and place it wherever you need it. The only downside is the slightly higher price due to the added convenience.
