What should you consider when purchasing a Chair Trolley?

When buying a Chair Trolley, several factors should be considered to ensure you choose the most suitable trolley for your needs. 

Chair Trolley Type

The first major consideration is the type of trolley. There are two-wheeled trolleys that function similarly to a sack truck, which are perfect for moving or distributing chairs across a large space. Alternatively, four-wheeled trolleys can serve as mobile storage racks. Both types have their advantages, and the choice depends on whether mobility or storage is a priority.

Number of Chairs to Move or Store

Another crucial aspect is the number of chairs you intend to move or store. Different trolleys have varying capacities. For instance, some trolleys can hold up to 20 chairs, while others can store twice as many. It's essential to estimate the number of chairs you'll usually need to move to ensure the trolley you choose can accommodate your needs.

Moving Chairs up Stairs?

Finally, the terrain or floor where the chairs will be moved should also be considered. If you must transport chairs up and down stairs, a stair climber chair trolley would be the best choice. It's specially designed to navigate stairs and uneven surfaces, making the transportation of chairs more manageable and safer.

Remember, purchasing a Chair Trolley is an investment in efficiency and safety. Therefore, careful consideration of your specific requirements will lead to a selection that best suits your needs and circumstances.
