Making workplace life a lot easier

Whether it's an office stationery delivery, furniture or boxed products ready to ship out, something always needs moving. We have suitable a huge range of products for sale, all designed to help take some of the weight.

Selecting the right truck for your workplace is important.

There is often more than one name given to a sack truck. You'll hear them referred to as a sack trolley, hand trolley and sack barrow. You'll need to know roughly what type of object and the maximum weight you'll be moving.

So where do you start?

Many of our sack trucks are designed to be multi-purpose and suitable for many areas. These are some of the main features that you'll want to look out for when looking through the range:

  • Load capacity - the total weight the truck can support and carry safely
  • Handle type - different handles change the way you use and operate the truck
  • Toe plate size - you'll need a truck with a surface area that's not too small for your items

Load capacity

The first thing most customers look for in a sack barrow is what kind of load capacity it has. Every sack truck on our website will show a maximum capacity to help you select the right truck for the items you are transporting. Load capacities can range from 60kg up to a massive 350kg or more on our heavy duty trucks.

Get the right style of handle

Two handled sack trucks are the most common in our range and offer greater leverage when tipping a heavily loaded sack truck, getting it ready to move. A P type handle is featured on some of our sack truck models and offers easy single handed use, especially when pulling the truck along. The P style handle also provides greater turning flexibility over the two handled versions. Many of our handles also have protective guards to offer superior grip and prevent damage to the users hands when navigating door frames.

The Size of the Toe Plate

The toe size of a sack barrow is important as a small toe is easier to transport, but may not be suitable for moving larger boxes or objects.

No matter what your requirements in a sack truck are, we'll have one to suit the items you're moving. The toe plates in our range can be as small as 100mm and as long as 700mm. Use the filters at the side of the page to find exactly the depth you need.

Is a folding as good as a fixed truck?

So you've got things to move but there's a lack of storage space for a conventional sack truck. It could be that you need to easily transport goods from a delivery vehicle but dont have the space to carry a full sized truck on board. After all, that's space that could be used to store more products for delivery.

A folding sack barrow makes storing, carrying and transporting very easy. Our Compact Folding Sack Truck is a great example as one of the most compact and affordable trucks we have available.

The toe is hinged, enabling it to fold up in to the frame of the sack truck and takes up less space. They're the same on both light and heavy duty folding sack trucks. It makes the hand truck really easy to store without taking up much floor space. It even makes most hand trucks compact enough to store on delivery vehicles.

Some of our folding toe trucks also feature collapsible handles and frames. These are often telescopic parts that slide down in to the frame to reduce the size of the truck with stored. This makes a compact folding sack truck ideal if you need to transport it in a car boot or small delivery van.

The aluminium folding trucks we have available are very lightweight. At around 4-6kg per sack truck, they are easier to carry than steel alternatives. An aluminium folding hand truck is ideal for delivery vehicles as they don't add too much weight to the overall load being carried.

Many of our folding sack barrows come supplied with elasticated cords or straps to help secure and support the load while being transported. They also feature robust wheel options that includes rubber tyre wheels and pneumatic wheels. The later option is extremely useful while moving goods by sack truck over rough or uneven floors.

If you need a folding truck and tend to move heavy or bulky loads then check out our heavy duty folding sack truck options. Some of our folding heavy duty folding trucks can take up to 270kg in weight. They do also feature larger folding toes in order to accommodate bulkier items.

Heavy Duty Sack Trucks for tougher environments

Our Heavy Duty range are by far our most popular for use in the workplace. Each truck features a high quality construction, huge load capacity and large toe plate. They generally have pneumatic tyres to ensure that heavy loads are transported safely over rough terrain and uneven warehouse floors. The steel construction of the heavy duty sack trucks means that they are more robust and can take more daily wear-and-tear. They have higher rust resistance due to their painted or powder coated finishes. Each heavy duty truck has a maximum load capacity depending on it's construction and they can generally take loads of up to 350kg.

If you regularly need to move loads up stairs, you'll want to take a look at our Stair Climbing Trucks. They make stairs safer for moving loads with their rotating 3 wheel designs and can save a lot of time. We even offer a heavy duty Aluminium Stair Climber with a 300kg load capacity for transporting large loads up stairs safely.
