small flat ledge to stack boxes on. Boxes are the most commonly
moved items with the hand dolly. Begin by creating a small stack
of boxes, with the heaviest box on the bottom for stability
purposes. Stack three or four boxes high, depending on the size of
the boxes and weight of them. Slide the ledge under the stack of
boxes, holding the stack with one hand and the dolly with the
other, slowly tip back the dolly. This will bring the boxes to rest on
the bars of the dolly and evenly distributing the weight of the load
above the tires of the dolly. This piece of equipment will make
moving your boxes easier and more efficient.
Some hand trucks are equipped with stair climber wheels. These
wheels are designed simply to go up and down stairs with ease,
making your move easier on you and your helpers.
Four Wheel Dolly –
A four wheel dolly which can also be known as a furniture dolly is
an excellent tool used to move dressers, upright pianos, armoires,
etc. This tool also makes it easy to move items in tight spaces. A
four wheeled dolly should have padded edges before use; this is to
prevent damages to the bottom of the items being moved. Having
a tool that has 1,000 pound capacity is extremely helpful in moving
your large furniture items. A four wheel dolly cannot be used on
the stairs; however it works great for moving things in an elevator.
You will need assistance in lifting the heavy items and carefully and
placing them evenly on the four wheel dolly. Placing them evenly is
very important in assuring that it does not tip or slide once the item is placed on the dolly.
Remember move smart, not hard !
