Flatbed trolleys are a convenient way of moving goods in commercial, hospitality, and retail settings.

They are used in a huge variety of workplaces, providing a safe and efficient method of transporting objects of all shapes and sizes.

Flatbed trolleys carry heavy loads on a simple flatbed platform mounted on four castors. The fixed handle positioned at one end allows the user to easily control the cart and smoothly navigate to their destination.

Whether it is relocating bulky items like boxes or crates, or moving a high volume of smaller items that would usually take a few trips by hand, flatbed trolleys are the perfect solution.

This type of handling equipment is also optimised for carrying items over long distances because its design allows the user to pull (or push) instead of having to lift.

With robust wheels and a strong frame, the flatbed trolley can navigate rough terrain that could be difficult to cross in normal circumstances. This type of device is also designed to be long-lasting and requires little maintenance.

There are many types of flatbed trolley available, including the traditional style with a wooden base and a steel frame or plastic-clad versions for clean environments.

The type of wheel can also be changed to enhance capacity.

Additionally, there are options for:

  • Deadman brakes which halt the trolley when the handle is released
  • ATEX-rated flatbeds for environments that require spark-resistant equipment
  • Flatbeds with hybrid chassis that feature off-road wheels
  • Flatbeds with inbuilt weighing scales for measuring weight on the move
  • Powered flatbed trolleys that allow the user to move vast weights with little effort

A flatbed trolley’s low, flat surface also means that there is a steady platform to carry your items, minimising the risk of any damage being inflicted.

All the products in our range are manufactured by us.

If you require any modifications, or have specific requirements for a perfect flatbed trolley, Handle-iT can make it.

We can fabricate a flatbed trolley from an initial sketch, moving to the prototyping stage and then a final product.

We are also able to cater for those who want to place a bulk order.

The flatbed trolley is a staple of warehouses, transport hubs, airports, hospitals, factories and anywhere goods need to be moved by hand safely.

So, if you want to make transporting goods a seamless process, why not get in touch with our team of experts today?
