Board Trolleys

What are Board Trolleys?

A board trolley (also called a panel trolley, plasterboard trolley or sheet trolley) is designed for transporting large sheets of materials such as plywood, plasterboard, drywall or panelling. Board Trolleys come in a range of styles and sizes, ensuring that they are versatile to use for a range of purposes on a range of different sites.

There are many reasons for using board trolleys:

  • save time and cost – reduce the risk of injuries – especially due to straining
  • efficiency – can be manoeuvred through narrow spaces with ease
  • productivity – can move several boards at one time
  • easy to use – they are simple to operate
  • save costs – limit the risk of damage to the material being moved

Where are board trolleys used?

Typically Board Trolleys – because of what they are designed to move – are used in the construction industry and building supplies wholesale/retail sector. These versatile trolleys are specifically designed to safely transport board, sheet timber, drywall, plastic sheets, granite, doors and packs of metal stud with ease. Their manoeuvrability makes them ideal for use in:

  • construction sites
  • timber yards
  • industrial environments
  • factories

On construction sites, a Board Trolley is a perfect tool to transport small quantities of plasterboard or other sheet material that otherwise would need to be carried by hand.

If you’re in the property renovation business, it’s a given that you’re going to be moving large items, which can be a daunting task if you’re doing it unassisted. A Board or Panel Trolley is an essential tool to make transporting these large items more easily and safely. Bulky loads can be transferred safely, with the bonus that the material can be stored on the trolley until needed – keeping it out of the way but allowing it to be available for easy access.
