Food service carts are one of the most used pieces of equipment in the food service industry as they transport items from one destination to the next. When it comes to purchasing a cart, many different factors need to be considered. How much room between shelves? What type of floor surface will the cart be used on? How much will it be used? These questions should all be answered before placing your final order with Central.
There are a variety of types of food service carts that have specific capacity maximums as well as ideal work situations, floor surface types and usage (in hours per day).
Keep in mind a cart's weight capacity is when the weight is distributed evenly among all of the shelves, not just one. For instance, if you purchase a cart with a 300 lb. capacity, try to avoid putting anything over 100 lbs. on each shelf, or upgrade to a cart with a higher capacity.
