Folding Carts Make The Best Stock & Route Delivery Cart

Shop our Online Catalog: Utility Carts

Folding L Carts Folding carts are used for stocking and route delivery. They feature a platform that is guided by either one vertical handle on one end of the platform or two vertical handles at either opposing end. Different sizes and models can be used to transport various types of stock. Some are used to move things in an out of storage inside a business, while others are made to move materials onto and off of trucks. When the user is finished with the cart, the handles fold down flush with the platform. This allows the user to store the cart by laying it platform down on a hard surface, or balancing it on the end with the platform resting against a corner of a wall.

Folding Utility Cart

Obviously, this space saving storage feature makes folding carts far more practical for smaller facilities than typical utility carts. Large organizations also prefer to use them if they need to devote their storage areas to other products and supplies. Saving space is something that every facility, to some degree, needs to work toward regardless of the physical size of the building.

That being said, we can readily see just how many facilities out there can benefit from work carts with fold down handles. Carts made from aluminum are particularly valued in applications where sterile conditions are necessary. Both food service organizations and hospitals use them extensively to transport food products, medical products, and various forms of sterile equipment.

Other organizations that utilize folding carts include schools, nursing homes, mail box centers, smaller medical clinics, and offices. Because there are so many types of materials that can be moved around with carts, different models feature different weight capacities and design builds. Essentially there are three cart designs types that include several individual models.

Stock carts have a basic platform and single handle used to push the platform forward. Sometimes they are called “L Shaped” carts because they look like the letter “L.” They are typically used to move light loads stored in boxes in offices, retail stores, and smaller restaurants. Mostly, these stock carts are stored at the facility and used within the facility, although they can be used outdoors. Applications that involve unloading and loading products from trucks require a more heavy duty build than the typical stock cart features.

These folding carts are larger and have a heavier weight capacity. They go by a variety of names such as transport carts, marketing carts, and utility carts. They weigh at least 20 pounds more, on the average, than the average stock cart. In order to maneuver much heavier loads, which often requires the guiding force of two operators; these carts feature folding handles on either end. Many can handle up to 1,500 pounds of weight and are the preferred method of getting heavy boxes safely onto and off of trucks and into warehouse areas.

Route delivery carts are used to unload various products from delivery trucks to offices, restaurants, clinics, and stores. When we see packs of bottled water being wheeled into the delivery door of a grocery store, we are seeing route delivery folding carts in action. Like stock carts, they have only one handle that allows the delivery driver to steer them into stock storage areas. Unlike smaller stock carts, however, they are heavier and designed for bulk load transport.
