It doesn’t matter what type of profession you’re in, a big part of any job is doing the tasks assigned to you properly and carrying your own weight, however when it comes to warehouse workers, this weight becomes less metaphorical and more back-breaking. Naturally, since no business has the sort of money to afford medical insurance good enough for their workers to routinely carry large items by hand, warehouse workers always use a trolley to get the job done instead. Seeing as how there are many different types of products these warehouses can store, it stands to reason that not all of them can be transported in the same way. This reason is exactly why there are multiple types of trolleys that need to be available in any warehouse. But what are some of the most important ones?
One of the simpler but still incredibly useful types of trolley you can get is one of the foldable variety that is commonly referred to as a foldable trolley (tough to remember I know). But on a more serious note, the foldable trolley is a really great solution if you have to transport a heavy package but don’t have much room to manoeuvrer and squeeze in a bigger kind of trolley. They can handle a much bigger load than their small frame would lead you to believe and can easily be collapsed and made to fit even in the back of a cramped loading truck.
On the other side of the scale, when handling the much more cumbersome items, you will need something with a bit more space to load it on and a lot more stability to get it from point A to point B in one piece. The heavy-duty variety of warehouse trolleys are characterised by a wide base with at least four sturdy wheels underneath and a sturdy metal bar to push it with and a weight capacity large enough to carry a rhino. The downside of these trolleys is apparent – they aren’t exactly great in tight spaces. However, on the upside, the types of items you will need them to transport will without a doubt need a lot of space to store anyway so there really isn’t a problem.
And lastly, you might also want to consider getting some 2 or 3 tier trolleys. While these are the most limiting in terms of the size of the object that they can carry, especially the 3 tier variety, they have other strengths. There really is no better choice if you are transporting smaller items that these particular models. Not only do they have space enough for dozens of packages at a time, but their multi-level design allows the items to be easily sorted as well.
