Glaro Inc. Announces That Platform Trucks and Condo Carts Are Rising in Demand Because Of Their Versatility and Convertibility

Share Article

Manufacturer Glaro Inc. says that condo carts and platform trucks can often help facilities operate more efficiently than bellman carts alone and that demand is being driven by a need for both performance and appearance. Using carts that are only utilitarian or believing that one cart can be used universally for all functions are outdated concepts for a growing number of facilities.

We continue to innovate, whether it is creating a new concept such as Condo Carts, making platform trucks more appealing, reengineering how a chassis distributes weight, or providing some of the most robust deck tops in the industry.

For over 70 years, customer-focused Glaro Inc. continues to develop products based on market demands. Executives say that there are many jobs that need to be performed by carts in any facility and that there is no single ‘universal’ cart that is ideal for every job. As a result, Glaro Inc. has designed and manufactured condo carts and platform trucks in addition to its full line of bellman carts. Each has distinct advantages that cater to the specific needs of facilities such as casinos, hotels, convention centers, airports, transportation stations, healthcare facilities and universities, to name a few.

“Over the years, we have learned that the market demands both form and function. One without the other leads to unmet needs,” says Executive Vice President Robert Betensky. “Whereas most platform trucks on the market are strictly utilitarian and appear to be designed for back of the house, Glaro Inc. carts and trucks have an upscale front of the house design that facility managers are proud to use in public areas where appearance counts.” Their superior performance and curb appeal have propelled the line’s success.

Equally important, customers are able to select the ideal cart for their specific type of facility. Glaro Condo Carts which have a bottom deck and one or two additional removable shelves as well as side containment rails, for example, provide a practical solution for transporting small and large boxes/packages efficiently in conference centers, catering halls, multi-residence buildings, dormitories, condo/apartment complexes and more.

By contrast, platform trucks are most apt to move large capacity loads, luggage, boxes, equipment, and furniture, especially in large facilities such as office buildings, museums, convention centers, hotels, hospitals, and universities. If a facility needs more capacity than a bellman cart can offer, ergonomic platform carts (including a 6 wheel model model five feet in length) can be purchased to transport 1500 lbs. or more with ease.

Bellman carts are primarily used as front of the house luggage transporters for the hospitality industry. Uniquely, the bellman cart manufacturer Glaro Inc. has a six-wheel cart that exceeds the performance of all other carts. It provides ‘pinpoint maneuverability’ because of its wheel and chassis engineering design. Pinpoint maneuverability redistributes weight so that the cart can virtually turn in place and move effortlessly, even with heavy loads.

Glaro executives confirm that the company’s wide range of cart deck coverings allow customers to choose exactly what they need. For example, coin style vinyl decking provides a highly durable surface that can be easily sanitized in facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. Steel and aluminum deck coverings are geared more for utility applications, whereas carpeted surfaces are used where appearance matters most, such as in high profile areas and in hospitality facilities where they perfectly match the bellman carts.

According to Plant Manager Robert Glass, “we continue to innovate, whether it is creating a new concept such as Condo Carts, making platform trucks more appealing, reengineering how a chassis distributes weight, or providing some of the most robust deck tops in the industry.”
