Foldable Hand Truck

Updated on January 18, 2011

Greetings and welcome to this hub on foldable hand trucks. In here you will deals on folding carriers and equipment, as well as buying tips and product recommendations. Hand trolleys are very useful equipment, so read more to learn more on what to expect when in the market for one.


Really, it’s harder not to think of how these handy little things can be of use. These carriers can be used almost anywhere—at the most unexpected times and places. They save time and effort by making general tasks easier, especially those that involve hauling, lifting, and transporting small to medium packages.

If you take into consideration these trolleys can be folded and become more compact when not in use, you have a winning formula. Imagine being able to fit one inside an already-cramped delivery truck or a space-hungry storage area. If you get one that is designed for personal use, you can even bring them to your travels, and haul your luggage instead of carrying them. After use, you can stick them inside your bag or hotel cabinets until it’s time to use them once again.

Buying guide

Multiple different designs and styles are available for folding hand trucks. Obviously the first thing you would need to consider is your intended use for the trolley. Trucks vary in sizes so the capacity should be within the weight of things you plan on hauling. For travel use, you can opt for a personal foldable trolley, but for more industrial uses you need heavy-duty trucks or even multi-wheeled foldable trucks that can carry bigger and heavier loads.

If you plan on doing heavy transport, as mentioned, a platform truck might be suited for you. These trucks usually have four wheels, one on each corner, so a more stable ride is achieved. A heavier maximum capacity can also be accommodated. There are folding versions of these but they are not as portable. However, you still save some space when storing them.

You also need to consider the materials with which the truck is built. They materials will dictate the life of the trolley and its maximum capacity. Check to see the quality of the wheels. Check the quality of the areas where the fold or sliding action happens as these are fail points. Nothing less than aluminum should be used for the frame of the trolley.
