The Best Trolley for Offices

The Best Trolleys for Offices

If you have ever worked in an office, you will know how easy the average office accumulates files, folders, and everything else you could imagine. If you work in a large building, these items might need to be transported to another department or stored appropriately, taking into account the fact that you might have limited space available.

This is where trolleys come in handy. Not only does it make for easy transport of files, folders, mail, and records, but when the trolley is not in use, it can also be used as a filing cabinet or book case.

Here are some of the best trolleys to use around the office, and the benefits of using them:

You need to transport files and folders

If you need to move files and folders to another departments, another floor or another building, a trolley is the safest and easiest way to do it.

Why use a trolley?

Move all the files and folders you need to in just one trip. The trolley takes some of the strain, rather than you risking injury by trying to move everything yourself.

Best trolley: 125kg Basket trolley

This trolley is perfect for making the transportation of files and folders an easy task. It’s easy to manoeuvre, and its non-marking swivel castor wheels ensure that the trolley moves smoothly across floor surfaces. The 2 removable baskets make for easy loading and unloading of files and folders.


You need to transport documents to meetings and events away from the office

If you are attending a meeting or convention, you need to keep all of your files and documents organised.

Why use a trolley?

It’s an easy and convenient way of transporting everything you need, while keeping it organised.

Best trolley: Folding box trolley:

This trolley is big enough for what you need to take with you, but it’s not too heavy to be lifted into the boot of a vehicle. The ergonomic push/pull handle folds away for easy storage when the trolley is not in use, just like the trolley itself. The 2 large wheels and swivel castors make it easy to manoeuvre even in tight spaces, and the adjustable shelves can be adapted to different loads.


You need to distribute post

Keeping everyone’s mail organised is not easy, especially in a large organisation.

Why use a trolley?

Load all of the mail on the trolley and deliver it in one go. You can load different baskets with mail for different departments to stay organised, and you won’t need to risk injury by lifting and carrying parcels around.

Best trolley: Mail distribution trolley

This trolley has 2 baskets with zinc rails for hanging files, and the ergonomic handle means that it can be pushed or pulled in any direction. The 2 rear wheels and 2 front swivel castors make it easy to manoeuvre and the trolley is available in 3 sizes, so you’ll find one to suit your workplace! You can also purchase a rear basket, to personalise the trolley to your needs.


You have the office tea-making duties

An office is not an office without copious amounts of tea and coffee.

Why use a trolley?

You can transport cups, milk, sugar, and biscuits, all in one go. Having everything you need on the trolley means that you won’t be risking burns by splashing yourself with boiling tea or coffee while you try to juggle everyone’s 11am beverage.

A trolley can also make a handy self-service station, where you can set up everything needed to make a refreshing pick-me-up.

Best trolley: Tray trolley

It has 4 rubber castors for smooth transport across different surfaces; ideal for avoiding spillages of your precious brew! It is available in a 2 or 3 shelf version, so if you need to take biscuits and cakes to hungry workers at break time, it’s perfect!


You need a trolley that’s a jack of all trades

If you think that your office could do with a trolley now and again for different tasks, but you don’t want anything specific, you need a trolley that’s a good all-rounder.

Why use a trolley?

You might need to move items now and again, and having a versatile trolley can make any job easier and safer.

Best trolley: Proplaz folding trolley

This trolley folds neatly for easy storage, so it won’t take up too much space. It has 3 shelves and is versatile enough for most office tasks. It can be folded and unfolded in seconds, using the release handle.
