What to look for in a hand truck trolley

It’s important to choose the trolley that will best meet your needs when you’re looking at trolleys for sale. Here is a quick guide to the main types and where you might need a particular type in preference to others:

  • Heavy duty trolley – you’ll need to choose a heavy duty trolley for situations where you frequently need to move heavy loads. Heavy duty trolleys are built extra tough, and they will normally have large diameter wheels with tyres that are specially designed for heavy duty performance.
  • Stair Climbing Trolley – this is a great choice for removalists and others who need to frequently move heavy loads up and down stairs. The specially designed system of three nylon wheels that rotate around a centre-mounted axel will grab the edge of a step and provide mechanical advantage to help pull the load up without the massive effort that would be required with a normal trolley.
  • Stainless Steel Trolley – a range of stainless steel trolleys in 2 or 3 tier options, easily cleaned and sterilised with noise reduction wheels and is corrosive resistant.
  • Easy Tilt trolley – one of the safest general purpose trolleys, the foot lever provides mechanical advantage when tilting the trolley back from the vertical position in preparation for movement. This mechanism can help reduce the possibility of back injuries and also just makes lighter work of a heavy job.
  • P-Handle hand truck trolley – this is a popular choice for professionals because it allows a light load to be tilted using only one hand, is easy to use for both pushing and pulling, and this trolley type can also double as a horizontal platform.
  • Folding hand trucks and trolleys – not intended for heavy duty use, but providing ultimate portability and compact storage, a folding trolley is good for when you just need a simple trolley that can be stowed away easily.
