What is a hand truck? What is a dolly?
You can transport equipment and supplies from the warehouse to your open-plan office with a hand truck or dolly. A hand truck is an L-shaped hand cart with a handle at one end, while a dolly is a raised platform on wheels. While dollies can often accommodate heavier items like furniture and appliances weighing 1,000 lb or more, hand trucks can work well for most everyday tasks with a floor-level platform that's easier to slip beneath a stack of boxes.
What features should I look for in dollies and hand trucks?
Much like step stools or ladders, carts and trucks help make getting items from Point A to Point B easier. Make sure your hand cart or dolly can handle the load ahead. Keep an eye out for weight capacities that range in accommodation for the weekly deliveries to furniture orders. Storage can be easier with hand-truck, dolly and hand-cart designs that fold compactly. Convertible designs with a couple extra wheels can give you more room to fit tall/slim and wide/bulky loads alike. Handling deliveries can be easier when you choose the right equipment for the job.
