Turntable Trucks – Moving Loads Made Easy

What are turntable trucks?

A Turntable Truck (also known as a Platform Trolley, Flatbed Trolley or Turntable Trolley) is a special type of flatbed truck or trolley, which uses some type of turntable system allowing the wheels to turn in unison, thus making it simple to change the direction that the truck is travelling in.

Some turntable trucks are fitted with just a flat platform, whilst others can have fixed or removable sides meaning that they can be used to manually move a range of products.
