Renting an appliance dolly?
Or, are you a professional in enough homes that the time has come to buy one?
I won't spend much time on this. Let me just tell you what I have, why I have it, and then you make the call.
Years ago, I decided that sparing no expense seemed to make sense
when I considered the potential losses if I went cheap.
So, I settled on this one, here, and my dolly has paid for itself many times over.
As well as provided insurance against damages.
- its 1200 lb capacity means I can lift anything.
- the four wheel, tip-back is like having another helper.
- it has the rear rolling skids for going up steps.
- large wheels are big enough to roll something over turf.
- strap ratchets tight AND LOCKS! No tensioner!
So, if you are in the building business and need hardwood floor protection,
this particular dolly is my strongest recommendation to you because:
Of course, you will still need drop cloths and runners. You may even need these items lined with something water-resistant, if liquid might possibly drain out.
And, I especially recommend a rigid surface for heavy items like refrigerators.
NEVER pull out a refigerator without a rigid surface, by the way.
And whenever new appliances are delivered, use the rigid surface as a landing pad in front of the appliance space.
That and an excellent appliance dolly are very cheap insurance, indeed, against costly wood floor repair.
