Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by psc Just what we needed.
We needed these dollies for an unconventional use -- a live action game of hungry hungry hippos with teens lying down on them with a laundry basket out in front to snag balloons and a rope attached for their team mates to pull them back after they had been shoved into the center of the room. We ended up using them to move boxes and boxes of donated food down a long hallway and they work well for the old fashioned uses as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovestopaint Couldn't have done it without them!
Our purchase of two of the Milwaukee1000 lb. Capacity Furniture Dolly was the only way that we could have moved our 800 lb. refrigerated pastry display case to our soon-to-open small, family bakery. We needed two of them to balance the six-ft. long case. (This photo shows the case stored in our garage prior to moving into the store this past week). We used the dollies for other equipment, as well. This dolly is a great value and made very sturdy - especially important, since we're starting this business on money that we've saved and not with any loans, so EVERY penny counts!! Great product! It more than paid for itself in one use. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Effortless way to move a 360lb cast iron bath tub
We're remodeling our bathroom and bought a cast iron drop-in soaker tub that weighs around 360lbs and is 5' long and 36" wide. This dolly was more than up to the task of making the job of moving it through our home into the bathroom a very straightforward task, even with the bath in the vertical position to get through narrow 28" doorways.
We used a 2" heavy duty cargo strap to strap the dolly onto the end of the bath where the drain and overflow are and then flipped the tub on its end. Once on the wheels the tub became very easy to move and we were able to navigate it through our front door and around a very tight 90 degree angle in our hallway to get the bath into the bathroom. The fact that the wheels rotate 360 degrees make it very easy to maneuver around in tight spaces and we avoided any gouges or scrapes in our walls or door frames.
We put some plywood panels down to protect our wood floor as the dolly wheels are plastic and the dolly wheels didn't bind up once we were on carpet.
Once inside the bathroom the dolly was also very useful for sliding the tub in and out of the shower/tub niche while we framed the walls - it was possible for one person to do this by tilting the tub and sliding the dolly partly under the tub. The 360 degree swivel on the wheels again came in handy here while navigating the tub into the niche that had about 1/4" to spare between the tub edge and the framing.
The dolly is very durable, lightweight for its capacity and has a convenient carry handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 You too can become a moving pro
I use these dollies often whenever I help any of my buddies move. My "go to" moving equipment includes 2 of these dollies a hand truck. I use 2 dollies for larger or heavier items. For items like this, I'll slip the hand truck underneath to get some leverage, lift the item up and have my buddy slip the dolly underneath. I used this technique on a partner desk that weighed over 1000 lb and was able to move it easily. Once items are on this dolly, they can move effortlessly. There have been several instances when the dolly had to roll over different surfaces and it was able to switch surfaces without an issue. I've become so good with using these that my friends call me the "Dolly Lama" Highly recommend this dolly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WildMuffins Can't manage without them!
Keep finding uses for these and buying more. All the loose storage containers in my basement have been on dollies since hurricane Irene - now they're super easy to move and elevated off the floor. I also secure a window air conditioner to one of these, attached an old luggage strap, and haul the darn thing up and down the staircases to/from the second floor. Works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eb Excellent dolly or rolling stand
The dolly is fully assembled, works great and can hold a lot of weight. I use them for shop equipment as rolling stands and they last for a long time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JJ hit and miss
This product does not support any thing close to the claimed 1000 pounds. the wood often cracks and the bearings/wheels are often poor quality.
