Utility Carts

I tried to do a search but did not come up with anything. Anyone know where I can purchase a utility or restaurant cart, fairly heavy duty, for transporting groceries etc. from garage to house.

Restaurant supply house? Office equipment store (might have to order from the catalog)?

RE: Utility Carts

I searched at (the shopping site connected to Google) and found tons.

I just used the words, "utility cart," no quotes even.

It's a pretty bulky thing; I'd hate to have to pay shipping--though, the one I found would only cost $15 or so for shipping!.

these guys on eBay charge $82, but their cart looks really tough w/ good wheels)

Both the ones I found were less than $100, though there are lot so fthem that are between $150 and $20025

I vote for looking in the Yellow Pages to find a restaurant-supply place, or a Janitorial-supply place, or a hospital-supply place. You'll want to enquire whether you'll need a resale number; some places only sell wholesale. (some of *those* places have offered to sell me stuff at the wholesale price if I paid cash)

You could also use a little red wagon! (if bending over and lifting isn't a big concern, anyway). Here's one that's labeled "utility cart," even if it is a wagon.

RE: Utility Carts

What exactly do you want? Would a garden cart work? Or do you want shelves? Do you want something that will work outside or just inside?

RE: Utility Carts

The Sam's Club website has a lot of different carts. I like the wagon idea, especially the one with the wooden sides, how cute and durable.


RE: Utility Carts

Are you looking for something like this??

I saw these in Walmart, under $20. , I think.

Try google searching "Folding Grocery Cart"

Good luck and let us know what you come up with.

RE: Utility Carts

Check out some of the taller TV or cookware-type carts. I put one together with the shelves installed upside down so that each of the three shelves had a nice 1" rim all the way around, for my husband's hobbyist work.

RE: Utility Carts

How heavy duty? They make carts for libraries that will hold up to 2000lbs! (Of course they cost about $600, but that's pretty dang heavy duty!) They call them "book trucks" in the library world - they have ones at various price points that hold anywhere form 500lbs up to the 2000lb 'monster' book truck

They have rather stylish carts.
