Commonly used dolly types by skilled moving experts nowadays

Today there are two types of dollies suitable for moving heavy objects. There are two types of dollies for large objects: those with four wheels and those with two wheels. The first thing people think of is the dolly with four wheels or that has two wheels when they hear the word “dolly.” But the variety of available dollies goes beyond this notion. The following are the types of furniture movers can use:

  • Appliance dolly. Suppose you’ve decided to have your essential household appliances moved to a new location. In that case, an appliance dolly is the most efficient way to manage large appliances like refrigerators, drying, and washing machines. They come with a larger base and are accompanied by secure straps to ensure that the appliance is securely placed and will not slide away.
  • Utility dolly. This type of dolly is also known as a hand truck. It features two wheels that are mounted on a metal base. It can be used to transport heavy objects and fits all purposes. It can also take boxes of various sizes if they’re too heavy and large to carry. It is equipped with a strap that allows the box to be secured as it is moved.
  • Stair dolly. Stair dollies can be powered by batteries and have six wheels. The stair dolly looks like a hand truck. The wheels can rotate quickly, which allows them to move up and down. The stair dolly heavy-duty is strong but a costly option for lifting large objects.
  • Furniture dollies. Four-wheeled wooden dollies can be used for furniture. While they don’t have handles, they have surfaces that are covered with soft materials to safeguard delicate furniture pieces. To set up a furniture dolly, put a piece of furniture on top and push it forward.

Depending on the object required to be relocated, the dolly for moving that is the right size and type is selected. What happens when a particular type of dolly can meet various needs for moving?

Furniture and utility dolls The differentiator

With a wide range of dollies on the market, the furniture dolly vs. utility dollies subject is one of the most talked about. Utility dolly, which, as mentioned previously, is a piece of multi-purpose equipment. Which one should you choose if you need to move large furniture pieces? To make the right choice, it is crucial to evaluate the capabilities of the two dollies. Remember that a large furniture dolly can move 1,000lbs maximum, while the utility dollies can carry objects weighing 600lb maximum. This means that extremely heavy and oddly-shaped household appliances or furniture must be moved with the furniture type. At the same time, smaller objects can be lifted and moved using the utility model. The latter can also be used for other purposes. For example, it can be used to transport smaller but heavy boxes.

What kind of dolly should you use to get ahead?

Dolly’s makes the moving process much easier as you have to put less effort into preparing and moving large objects from your home. Depending on the dimensions and weight of the objects needed to be moved, professional movers, choose the right kind of dolly. For example, the utility dolly is ideal for moving heavy boxes. But, the kind designed for lifting and moving large furniture pieces is preferred.

  • Pianos.
  • Sofas, couches, and couches.
  • Shelves and bookcases that cannot be taken apart.
  • Dressers.

As stated above, if there are any large domestic appliances to be moved, the movers you have already employed will consider hiring an appliance dolly instead of lifting such a delicate yet very heavy item. You can request a stair dolly in case you are moving out of your home with a few stories, and some things need to be brought down, but they’re huge and heavy.
