    wheeled trolly/cart to carry scooter battery

    I am on the hunt for something with wheels that I can use to carry my scooter battery from car inside. I leave the scooter in the car and just bring the battery in for charging. Anyone got any ideas? It needs to be small and foldable so as not to take up too much room in the car.

    The cheapest option is likely to be something like this

    http://www.sacktrucksdirect.co.uk/br...-capacity.html

    The cheapest I've seen was about ?12 - I've just linked to a random one on the internet. The problem with that is it only has 2 wheels and therefore requires tipping so that you can pull or push it. I find that action difficult and would have difficulty dragging something along behind me. Pushing might be easier but still difficult.

    This looks ideal but not at ?160 + VAT!

    Has anyone any ideas of something a bit like the second link but cheaper? Or something like the simple foldable cart but with 4 wheels? Ideally I'd be able to push whatever I get a bit like a walking frame.

    What about one of those 4 wheeled shopping trolleys that you can get quite cheaply.

    They also do lots of other trolleys on that website (even the one you linked for a little bit cheaper, £149 +vat).
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    That looks good nukecad and a reasonable price too.

    And of course the handle on that pivots so it wont take much storage room.

    Thanks.

    I like the look of that first trolley. Just not sure the handle will be high enough - must double check the measurements.

    I notice that they also sell the basket that was on the expensive one I linked to - they seem to sell the basket separately for about £20 if I wanted that as well

    It's not given directly but working it out:

    overall height - platform length
    1140 - 585 = 555
    overall depth - footiron length
    380 - 125 = 255

    so Height of handle in platform mode
    555 + 255 =810 ( about 32")
