10 Ways the Scoop Dolly Will Improve Your Warehouse Productivity

 

The amazing Scoop Dolly is an an ingenius material handling solution. At first glance, its design seems like a clever blend of both a hand cart and a dolly, both working together… only it’s even better. That’s because it has innovative features that enable one-person moving of tall, large and top-heavy loads that could never be moved with most carts and dollies.
Here are 10 reasons your warehouse should make the switch today.

  1. Functionality. This is where the Scoop Dolly is boss. One person can easily load and move items up to 800 to 1,000 lbs. – all alone – thanks to the pivoting feature of the carrying section. It carries the weight of the load, not your worker. We’re talking everything from door and window units to prefabricated walls and staircases — even humongous bureaus and machinery. (The base model carries up to 800lbs.; the weight upgrade hikes the limit up to 1,000 lbs.)

  2. Ease of Loading. The hand truck-like scoop slides easily under your load. Then, thanks to the Scoop Dolly’s ergonomic design, the load is easily tilted back onto the base, into a preset, load-specific, secure position. The base stays on the floor the entire time! Gone is the struggle to lean your load back, and then try to determine the best angle for transport afterward.

  3. Ease of Steering. Would you rather transport a load that feels virtually weightless and is completely secure, or a load that must be carefully and constantly managed in order to prevent crashes, spills, and worker/product damage? The Scoop Dolly can secure and hold your load, and move it in ANY direction.

  4. Fewer Workers Required. It’s true — one person can more easily load and move items that would normally require a 2-person team. Don’t believe it? Check out the multitude of videos of the Scoop Dolly in action here. https://vimeo.com/360700387

  5. Faster Loading and Transporting. Since the Scoop Dolly is designed to take quite a bit of the work away from your crew in terms of loading/unloading and transporting, this is a no-brainer; it takes less time, with fewer people, to do more work!

  6. Increased Safety. Once your load is tilted back, it is completely secure in the tilted position. You can even walk away if necessary, and leave it tilted without the back strain of lifting it up and putting it down each time you stop. Top-heavy items will not “get away” from your workers because there is no balancing act involved. It’s also safer for transporting your load directly into a truck vs. a forklift, which requires a front-end worker being placed between the load and the end of the truck.

  7. Cost Savings. Let’s be honest, in order to do all that the Scoop Dolly does, you’d have to invest in a top-notch dolly AND a top-notch hand cart, with possibly a forklift on standby as well. You’d also need to pay more than one person to load and navigate larger loads. Add in maintenance costs for such things as hand cart tires, the cost of damaged products, and worker’s compensation for injuries – and the Scoop Dolly is the clear winner in saving dollars and headaches.

  8. Versatility. Carts and dollies aren’t made to cover all of your warehouse needs; they can be somewhat limited in performance in comparison to the Scoop Dolly, which allows you to customize the angle of your load for stabilization of very large and heavy objects, and gives you far more control of it during transport.

  9. Upgradeability. Aside from the base model’s impressive capabilities, the multitude of Scoop Dolly options allow you to customize the unit even further. These include dock transition wheels for maneuvering over floor transitions and into trucks, brakes for completely immobilizing your load, an incredible leverage step which almost completely reduces back strain, a weight upgrade for items up to 1,000 lbs., a directional wheel for navigating easily around corners, and an add-on package for low-profile storage when not in use.

  10. Trustworthiness. The Scoop Dolly is many customers’ favorite warehouse helper. That’s because it consistently provides a low-maintenance tool that is American-made of all-steel construction, with durable powder-coating, casters instead of tires. It is simply built to last, and is the go-to material handling solution for all of our customers.
