Flat Fold Hand Truck
Rate this product
Flat Fold Hand Truck is a hand truck that will fold up to half its size so you can store it in your trunk or virtually anywhere in your home. It will hold up to 150 pounds per load, so you can use it to transport almost anything, from food items to bags of soil to furniture. Although it can hold a lot, the truck on its own actually weighs less than five pounds, so it won't be hard for most users to lift if need be.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Fold Out
If your hand truck happens to be folded up, you'll need to unfold it to its full size before you use it, which will take you only seconds.
- Add Load
Once your truck is folded out, you'll then be able to add whatever load you want to use it to carry. You'll need to place the items you need carried on the black plastic platform, making sure they're as centered on the platform as possible. It's not always necessary, but you may want to straps your items down if you think they might jiggle off ( two bungee straps come with each hand truck for this purpose ).
- Grab Handle and Pull
To pull your load along, you'll need to grab the top handle of your truck and start walking at a steady but not rapid pace. You might be able to pull your load with just one hand, but if you feel more comfortable, you can always put both hands on the truck's handle.
- Folds Flat
When you fold your hand truck up, it'll become flat, so you'll be able to fit it inside the trunk of a standard-sized vehicle with room to spare. Its flatness will also enable you to slide it into a variety of drawers and / or cabinets in your home when you're not using it.
- Rugged Wheels
Each Flat Fold Hand Truck has large, rugged wheels that won't easily get stuck, regardless of what you're using the truck to carry. These wheels will even glide smoothly over somewhat rough surfaces such as a gravel path, bumpy pavement, a grassy lawn, or a sandy area, and they're safe to use indoors, too.
- Anti-slip Base
The platform on each of these hand trucks has been designed to help prevent slippage, reducing the chances that the load you're pulling will fall off the truck.
- Fairly Tall
At its full height, this hand truck is fairly tall, so you'll be able to hold the top handle around waist level instead of having to bend over and hold it at knee level.
- Ideal for Moving, Rearranging
If you need to complete a small move, such as a move from the family home to a dorm room or a move to another house close by, this hand truck will help you out. You'll be able to move small appliances and furniture without great difficulty, so you likely won't need to hire any professional movers. This truck will also come in handy when you want to move appliances, furniture or large houseplants from room to room in your home or cottage.
- Can Use at Stores
You'll be able to use this hand truck at stores when you need to carry cases of soda, bags of soil, or anything else that is difficult to carry in just your two hands. If you bring it along on your shopping trips, you won't need to worry about a shortage of carts or finding an employee to help you carry heavier-than-average items.
- Bungee Straps Included
With each Flat Fold Hand Truck, you'll also get two black bungee straps that you can use to help you secure a load to your truck's platform. Most items won't easily fall off this truck, but if you're transporting valuables or breakables, you may want the extra security of having them strapped on in their containers.
- Deluxe Version Available
While the standard version of this hand truck is sufficient for everyday chores, there is the option of upgrading to the deluxe version. Instead of a plastic platform, this version has a metal one, plus heavy-duty wheels that are even more resilient than the standard rugged wheels.
- Platform Isn't Wide
As with many hand trucks, the Flat Fold Hand Truck's platform isn't extremely wide. Therefore, if you're carrying a wide appliance or piece of furniture without bungee straps, you'll need to tip the truck at a certain angle to prevent the item from sliding off. Of course, the anti-slip base will prevent some sliding, but it won't stand up to the forces of gravity if an item begins to fall forward.
- Other Folding Hand Trucks
There are other folding hand trucks on the market, but many of these are super-short when unfolded, which'll make it necessary for you to bend over and possibly strain your back while pulling a load.
- Non-folding Hand Truck
Hand trucks that don't fold up tend to be taller like the Flat Fold version, but they're often hard to transport as they often won't fit in a vehicle's trunk. One of these may need to be jammed in the backseat or strapped to your roof racks, if you have them.
- Carrying Items by Hand
You could choose to go without a hand truck at all and carry everything that needs to be moved by hand, but this could exhaust you and make your muscles sore. Moreover, there are some items you simply may not be able to carry on your own, so you'll have to enlist the help of others.
