When Should I Use A Platform Trolley?

You should invest in a platform trolley if:

  • You need to move heavy or bulky goods around on a daily basis;
  • You want an efficient workplace that runs like clockwork;
  • Your employees’ health, safety, and well-being are top of your list of priorities. You’d be amazed at how much a decent trolley takes the stress and strain out of manual handling.
  • You want to keep costs down. Not only is there a trolley for every budget, but they also improve productivity and reduce the chance of damage to stock in transit.

Before You Invest…

Before you invest in a platform trolley, here are some things you need to consider.

Think about the type of model you need

Trolley designs vary so you need to consider what will meet your needs. For example, there’s not much point in choosing a platform trolley with a mesh infill if you need to move long goods.

Consider the load capacity you might need

It’s never a good idea to overload a trolley above its capacity, so consider the kind of loads you’ll be moving and buy accordingly.

Maintain your trolley

You should treat your platform trolley like any other piece of equipment. This means once you’ve invested, you need to maintain it so that it’s safe to use and fit for purpose.

Train your employees to use the trolley correctly

There’s a legal requirement to provide manual handling training if your employees regularly do tasks that involve lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, or lowering objects. You should include the safe and correct use of workplace trolleys in this training. While most trolleys are simple to use, employees still need to know how to steer, handle, load, and maintain them. This will keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of damage to goods or stock.
