Kingsley Book Carts

At Kingsley, we’re well aware that one size never fits all. Every library has unique needs so we’ve done our best to provide you with options in our various lines of book carts. Each one has unique features that have been designed based on customer feedback and real-world experience. Take a look at our cart lines below and check out the standard cart features that you get with every Kingsley cart.

Standard Carts

60 High Capacity Cart

High Capacity Carts

Our High Capacity carts come with 4” diameter wheels to allow you the most amount of room for collections while still being able to push it around comfortably.

60 EasyRoller Cart

EasyRoller Carts

The larger the caster, the easier it is to move. Our 6” diameter EasyRoller casters are up to 50% easier to roll across long distances, up ramps, and through snow.

44 Under Counter Cart

Under Counter Carts

Shorter carts to fit where you need them. Undercounter carts are 25-1/4 and 31-1/2 inches high for placement under counters, circulation desks, low ThruWalls and more.

Specialty Carts

60 RainOff EasyRoller Cart

RainOff Carts

Never lose another cart cover with our RainOff Carts. These carts have a metal lid that keeps collections dry when you bring them in from your outdoor book drop.

50 QuietDrop High Capacity Cart

QuietDrop Carts

QuietDrop carts have an additional thick, industrial-grade felt lining that helps cushion materials and dampens the noise of books as they fall in.


DuraLight Cart Features

Aluminum sheet metal with feather icon

Light-weight, rust-free aluminum

All of our carts are made of aluminum alloy that will never rust and is over 60% lighter than comparable steel or wood carts. We believe you should only have to worry about the weight of the contents not the cart itself. Aluminum is also more resistant to dents and dings so your carts won’t look beat up when you bump into something on accident.

Close up of cart textured powder coat

Textured for a clean appearance

Our carts are covered in a glossy, textured, black powder coat finish that is over 2 mils thick. This coating resists scratches and hides fingerprints to keep your cart looking shiny and new.

Close up of cart handle

Push like a shopping cart

Our handles are wide, straight, and fixed at a comfortable height to make it easy to push and steer your cart back to check-in. Another advantage of having a fixed handle? It doesn’t bang against the side of the cart whenever something is deposited like a long u-shaped handle does.

Cart top-down shot with float tray visible

Ergonomic loading and cushioning

Every cart includes a self-leveling float tray that lowers as materials are added and raises as they are removed. This keeps the tray at the optimal height for collecting returns to reduce damage done to your collections. Each float tray has a thick felt pad at the bottom to cushion the fall of the first materials that are deposited. This felt pad is water resistant so you don’t need to worry about it retaining water and molding if you do ever happen to get liquids in your cart. By allowing collections to be deposited directly on top of the float tray, the cart has a greater max capacity than one with a collection bag that bunches up and takes up space that could otherwise be used for books or other media.

Guide rod dampeners at top and bottom

Stays in place with no extra noise

We’ve added thick guide rods to keep your float tray from bending and warping from uneven distribution of materials. The tray stays perfectly in position from the time the first deposit is made to the time the last one is removed. You never have to worry about the tray bending enough to let materials slip through the sides. The guide rods have dampeners at either end to ensure a tight fit and help eliminate rattling so the overall noise of the cart is reduced.

4 inch and 6 inch cart casters

Quality, easy to push casters

All four casters are plate mounted, non-marring, and are made of materials that resist abrasive surfaces such as asphalt and concrete. The two casters on the side with the handle are ball bearing swivel casters which make it easy to maneuver. These casters can also be locked to keep the cart firmly in place. The other two casters are fixed in place. Our casters aren’t 3” like some, they start at 4” in diameter for High Capacity Carts and go up to 6” in diameter for EasyRoller Carts because we know that the larger the caster, the easier it is to push when there’s a full load.
