No two businesses are exactly the same, whether that’s the products they deal with, their systems, employees or simply their modus operandi. Hence, the equipment and tools employees need to be equipped with in order to make their jobs less taxing and more efficient vary greatly. Moreover, different industries have different standards in regards to safety practices, cleanliness requirements, features, and so on.
For instance, a warehouse can be stocked with heavy items that may require transporting with a heavy-duty trolley. On the other hand, you might be stocking more light-weight items which can easily be transported with a caged, more light-duty trolley made of aluminium.
Another example: In the catering industry, stainless steel trolleys beat trolleys made of other, cheaper materials, due to the fact that stainless steel trolleys are reliable, durable, easy to sterilize and clean. In this case, the appearance of the trolley also matters, because you’re serving food and drinks from it, so it must be clean and shiny, and they should look brand new even after years of usage.
Moreover, stainless steel trolleys are rust-resistant and can be made of multiple layers of steel depending on the strength needed for the specific job. Besides the material it’s made from, the size of the trolley can matter. For instance, if you need the trolley to be mobile, a smaller, more compact and lightweight trolley can fold up for transport. So if you’re a catering company that needs to transport their own trolleys from one job to another, then you should consider this feature.
And lastly, trolleys can have a different amount of shelves. This makes trolleys extremely convenient, as they’re capable of transporting many different plates in a single small-sized trolley. Oftentimes, smaller trolleys will be easier to maneuver in tight spaces, so they might be more convenient for use in restaurants. Typically, one small, three-shelved trolley can serve up to two entire tables. This can be a point of reference for how many trolley your catering business may need.
Bottom line is, everything is easier with the right equipment. Quality equipment will save you money in the long run, your employees will have an easier time doing their jobs, and the chance of injury and accidents will be greatly reduced. Trolleys are a perfect example of that, regardless whether you’re using them in an industrial, office or other commercial setting, they can make jobs less taxing, much safer, and more efficient.
