Flatbed & Platform Trolleys

Flatbed trolleys are the unsung heroes of the warehouse world. These metal trucks are used every day in warehouses across the globe, helping to safely move and store goods in every industry imaginable.

A good industrial flatbed trolley will be durable, easy to hold and manoeuvre around the workshop floor, and withstand hard and heavy loads. We have platform trolleys of all shapes and sizes for sale: large ones, small ones, ones with sides, and ones that can carry super-heavy loads.

We’ve been designing and manufacturing trolleys and other handling solutions for decades, so we are well equipped to supply you when you need to upgrade. We are completely UK-based, which puts you in the driver’s seat: no lengthy delays overseas, easy and open communication, and incredible products at the end of it all.

What are platform trolleys?

A platform or flatbed trolley is exactly how it sounds: a sturdy wooden or metal platform on top of four wheels. Depending on the type, these trucks can have handles at one or both ends and there are models with swivel castors for easy manoeuvrability. They can be made to have extra features such as caged sides or shelves. The fact that they’re so versatile is what makes them a great tool for any warehouse environment.

What are the benefits of platform trolleys?

  • Increased productivity: Platform trolleys allow one user to transport large loads in just one journey, rather than having to go back and forth or indeed enlist the help of another worker. This means your team will be able to move more goods through your workspace using less time and energy, increasing overall productivity.
  • User friendly: These trolleys are ergonomically designed for one user to handle easily. Our trolleys have strong rubber wheels which glide over any surface with ease. This reduces any straining or twisting your team may have had to do if attempting to manually lift goods - increasing comfort and reducing physical work.
  • Durable and long-lasting: You know the saying: buy cheap, buy twice. Invest in high-quality flatbed trucks and you’ll have the tools to keep your workplace efficient for years to come. BlueTrolley products are only made of the best quality materials - so you can trust that when you buy from us, you are making a great investment for your business.
  • Variety of options: Whatever you need a trolley for, there will be a suitable product available. Perhaps you’re holding a conference and need a trestle table trolley for your vendors? Maybe you are holding an exhibition and need to transport lots of chairs: a folding chair trolley will save you time and energy

Why is it called a trolley?

The word ‘trolley’ as we know it today came into use in the 19th century. It comes through the verb ‘to troll’ which means to roll or trundle.

Is it better to push or pull a trolley?

Pushing a trolley is most often the safest and most effective way to move it across a level surface. However it is situation dependent - pulling is often safer and easier on uneven ground or up a ramp, for example.
