*A nice serving cart with some assembly annoyances*
I had been in need of a serving card to transport various silverware, wines, and snacks from the kitchen to the back patio. After using this for a few weeks it has fit the bill and I’ve found little to complain about the finished product.
Packaging from the manufacturer was adequate with plenty of foam and protection for shipping. I appreciate good packaging and they did fine here.
Assembly was a story in and of itself. The manual is humorously well written with each individual piece of the cart labeled for ease of identification and in theory one should have no trouble getting this together in no time, the reality though at least for me was that it was a little bit of a headache to get everything set up.
This cart is constructed of multiple aluminum machined levels held together with threaded rods onto aluminum rods. These aluminum rods seemed to be poorly tapped therefore requiring a bit of bending to get the holes to line up. On top of that one of the levels had its holes poorly bored out thus requiring me to get out the power drill to hog out a larger hole. In all honestly these assembly issues weren’t too big of a deal and the final product is nice enough for me to not knock it down too much. Still, be advised that you may run into issues.
The overall construction of the cart is nice though and once its all together I have really appreciated having it around. The top is a tempered glass slab, the bottom a piece of manufactured board with a nice laminate, and the casters are thankfully rubber. They lock down just fine.
For the price point I would say this product is a fair value. It doesn’t seem to be too expensive for what you get and in general there isn't much to complain about. They at least advertise a good/painless customer service so if you do run into any issues one would think that it wouldn’t be too much trouble to call them for a fix.
All in all if you are looking for a stylish dinner cart and this one has caught your eye I would say give it a go.
I really like this Carter 2 - Tiered Matte Black serving cart with wood shelf. This came very quickly and was easy to put together, it took about 25 minutes to put together and It is very sturdy. Most people would use this as a serving cart but for me it helps me organize my painting supplies. I’m an artist without a designated work space so this cart helps to get my supplies off my kitchen counter. I grateful for it!
Pros: Convenient, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Portable, Takes Less Space
Goodness this cart is awesome! It is so cute and feels like good quality. Its not only easy to assemble but the instructions are super funny and the company seems to be willing to help if something isn't perfect. Once you read the humor, you will get it. The wheels actually lock on this cart, or unlock if you want to roll it. Most items at this price point don't actually lock or unlock easily. This is made of good quality. I am looking forward to hosting with this cart. Also i read this thing can hold over 10 large bottles and after putting it together i would say that is true. Great buy!
Pros: Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Easy to Assemble
CARTER 2-TIERED MATTE BLACK METAL FRAME GLASS BAR
AND SERVING CART WITH WOOD SHELF
by Nathan James
This is a exceptional nice, well made and classy serving cart. I like the wood shelf.
This cart gives plenty of space for wine bottles, glasses or you can use it for serving
snacks, foods, dips or anything you'd like to serve. It is so versatile you will love it.
This cart has sturdy wheel casters, which makes it so easy to maneuver around. I
have also used it to put dishes of food on and roll it to the dining room table. Super
easy and so well made, very sturdy.
You do have to assemble it. It only takes approximately 25 minutes to assemble. It took
my grandson only 20 minutes to assemble. It has easy to follow instructions.
The matte black metal frame is what supports the tempered glass top shelf. You will
definitely be envied with is beautiful cart. The bottom shelf aids with storage of
wine bottles and stemware.
This cart has 2 storage tiers that provides a large amount of storage area for other
things you might need. Another great thing is you can use this wherever you need
to. It's great for the kitchen, bedroom, dining room, living room, patio or sun room.
This also makes a great coffee cart when guests arrive. It measures 16.54 inches
assembled, 35.04 inches high, 24.02 inches wide. It's really a great size, not too
large, but not too small. It weighs 29.1 pounds. I would definitely recommend this

This Bar Cart is exactly what I wanted! I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth it is when rolling, my intention was to just have it for display, but it is so smooth it may be used around the house! Would definitely buy again. Also the assembly was easy, was able to put together myself in less than an hr.
