Trolleys with wheels are essential in any workplace where you need to move goods on a daily basis. Need to move goods upstairs and steps? No problem. Got to move something heavy over rough terrain? Easy. Here’s our guide to the many benefits of trolleys with wheels.
First things first. When you’re browsing for workplace trolleys, you’ll see they have one of two different types of wheels. They’ll either have solid wheels or pneumatic wheels, made from durable materials like rubber, polyurethane, or polypropylene. Your perfect wheel of choice will depend on:
Anything that takes the stress and strain out of manual handling is a great investment. At first glance, a trolley is just a trolley. However, for you, it can mean a reduced risk of worker injury (and less sick pay to pay out). Not to mention better productivity as fewer workers can move more goods faster.
This is one of the biggest benefits of using trolleys with wheels. Many trolleys are mounted on swivel castors. Castor is housing that allows wheels to swivel and rotate 360 degrees. This makes them super easy to handle in areas where space is limited or when you have to navigate tight corners.
Trolleys with pneumatic wheels like our heavy-duty rough terrain sack truck are built to last. Not only that, they provide a cushioned ride, even over rough surfaces like bumpy grass or gravel. This makes handling easy, even if the trolley is fully loaded.
Wheel configuration makes trolleys suitable for many different types of applications. For example, do you need to move loads upstairs or steps? Stairclimbers have a unique triangle wheel configuration that allows you to do it with ease.
The last thing you want when you’ve invested in a truck or trolley is for it to break down. Productivity is king in busy workplaces. When you’re looking for a trolley with wheels, a model with solid wheels might be your best bet. There’s no risk of punctures, water damage, or cracking with solid wheels so you can use your trolley in the most demanding of environments.
From sack trucks to stairclimbers and everything in between, there’s a trolley with wheels in our range that’s perfect for your business.
