Hand Trucks-New or Used?

Before you decide, identify your current needs. Are you operating a small business or are you buying a hand truck for your home? Take into consideration the weight of the load. All standard hand trucks can carry 500 pounds of load. If you are operating a small business that loads boxes, you may need a brand new hand truck. Used hand trucks may not last long anymore and you cannot risk the safety of your truck operators. For a simple home operation, a used hand truck will do because you will not use it everyday anyway. Besides, it is cheaper and will save you a lot.

Always remember to consider what the hand truck is made of. Metal is still your best option as this is the sturdiest of all. Some products may boast of lightweight material such as aluminum but these are not trustworthy products. Metal alloys are good options, too. Always weigh the price and consider second hand.
