If you have to move or store folding tables, you will want to choose a high-quality brand of dolly that will make your task a lot easier. While this might seem like a minor issue, the proper selection and proper use of table dollies can cut down one of the leading safety issues in many workplaces – the back injury.
If you’re looking for table dollies (also called table carts) in order to make it easier when you have to move and store folding tables in a school, church, or other business, it’s wise to gather info and consider your options. Some table dollies are made to move specific models of chairs, while others are more universal. Removable table dolly rails can ease the effort of loading a heavy folding table onto it, and of unloading it later.

It’s almost always safer to use a dolly or other helpful handling item, because it’s better to be cautious than reckless.
It does take some thought to choose the right table dolly for a job. Make sure you pick table dollies that are the right size and design to handle the tables you need to move. Before making your purchase decision, think about how you or your employees are involved in routine material handling, and how they perform lifting and moving tasks. It might be wise to review your company’s back injury records, or discuss with your employees how to prevent injuries.
