Luggage carts are a type of small, wheeled apparatus that provides an easy and pain-free means of transporting baggage. Made from strong materials, like steel and aluminum, it can support heavy loads. The maximum weight capacity will vary with each model. This lightweight, yet sturdy, device is easy to maneuver through long airport terminals, thanks to ball-bearing rubber wheels. Most models will have a brake or wheel lock to keep it stationary during loading and unloading. It can be pulled or pushed via the adjustable handle that extends for larger loads or individual user heights. Luggage carts have platforms of differing sizes on which to place the load, some of which will have a protective rubber or carpeted surface. Bungee cords or elastic straps will ensure bags remain steady during transit. This multi-functional device can be used to move other things, like heavy boxes or groceries. For compact storage, select a cart that will fold flat when not in use.
