Trolleys are objects with wheels used to transport light, medium and heavy items from one place to another.

Blyth Enterprises have one of the largest ranges of trolleys in Perth. We stock a wide range of:
Before using a trolley, you should always check that the trolley can safely handle the weight of the intended object and that your planned path is clear. Avoid using the trolley on uneven surfaces.
If the item is large or irregularly shaped, you may need to seek assistance. Next stand close to the trolley, keep your elbows bent, shoulders relaxed and push the trolley forward (rather than pulling it backwards). Pulling the trolley increases your risk of injury as you cannot see where you are walking and can put unnecessary stress on your shoulders and back. You could also catch your foot on the trolley or its wheels. When pushing the trolley, move slowly and assess your surroundings. When you are finished return the trolley to its designated area.
