Coquitlam Movers Explain: Types Of Moving Dollies

When you’re moving your entire house, you have a lot of ‘big’ things to worry about. Packing, padding, selling, purging…it’s a lot of work! But logistically, when it comes time to move the big things (and not just the boxes), you’ll find that they can be a lot of work. Having the right tools can make all the difference. And that includes dollies.   But, different dollies do different things (for better or worse!). In this article, we’ll explain what the different types of dollies are, so you can get an idea of which ones you’ll need, depending on what you’re moving. Upright, hand-truck 2-wheel dollies   These can be as simple as a metal rack with a small base and wheels. It’s up to you to tie things to it that may fall over during transport.   When you get into fancier models, they can also lay down flat and turn into a wagon-style dolly. So that would give them 4 wheels, but they don’t always have to stand on all fours.   And then, the features can include different types of wheels for different strengths you’ll need, plus foldability and so on.   Here are some examples:   http://www.parallelrentals.com/rentals/moving-equipment/upright-dolly.html https://www.amazon.com/Magna-Personal-Capacity-Aluminum-Folding/dp/B000HVVSDU/ref=sr_1_1?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1506637822&sr=1-1&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_browse-bin%3A5572996011   Hand trucks can also be ‘stair climbing’ and technically have 3 wheels on each of two sides.
