  • Do you need a book truck to transport a lot of books each time? If yes, select the book truck with right load capacity. 150 to 200 lbs per shelf is standard load capacity for steel truck.
  • or are you looking for a desk side book truck for cataloging and book processing? if yes, look for light duty or desk side model, their shelf load is normally 125 lbs.
  • Is the transportation distance a concern to you? if yes, consider LibraryQuiet book truck with 4 to 5" caster
