Guide to Buying Bellman Carts Online
Bellman carts are an integral part of the hospitality industry. While they may not get the attention they deserve, you can guarantee that hotel and condominium patrons would quickly notice if they were not around to help them during their stay. Just as important as the function of a bellman cart is the process of choosing the right one for your establishment and specific needs. Let’s go over a few details to consider when purchasing a bellman cart.
1. What size bellman cart will work for you?
Before purchasing a bellman cart, you must make sure it will fit in your elevator. A brand new cart will not do you or your guests any good if it cannot make it into the elevator to transport their luggage. Additionally, you also need to consider the amount of space you have available in the hallways, storage area and anywhere else that your bellman carts will have to travel through. Considering these details ahead of time will help prevent you from buying a product that is too long and wide for the space you have to work with.
Various bellman cart manufacturers have different sizes available, ranging from 35” to 55” in length. However, the average length of a bellman cart is around 40” to 43” long, and the vast majority of hotels can accommodate this size comfortably. For boutique hotels that tend to have smaller elevators, a 35” bellman cart may be the ideal solution. And while a 55” bellman cart has the capability to carry more luggage for your guests, they can also be harder to maneuver and navigate through your establishment.
It all comes down to your needs and what can fit in your space. Making the effort ahead of time to figure out which size bellman cart you need can save you the hassle of ending up with a product that does not function properly for you or your guests.
2. What material do you want to go with?
Bellman carts are available in various materials, so there is something to match the style and décor of every hotel. However, certain materials and finishes will require more attention than others, something you may want to be aware of before making this purchase decision.
The majority of bellman carts from different manufacturers are available in aluminum, brass, stainless steel or a painted color. Aluminum and stainless steel are a good option if you are going for a modern look. Brass tends to be more traditional and lavish, but these bellman carts can require more maintenance if you choose a polished finish – regular polishing will remove fingerprints and keep it looking shiny. Satin finishes are also available, which tend to require less maintenance.
Another detail to consider is whether or not your bellman cart will be used outdoors. If so, you need to choose a material that will be able to withstand the elements and maintain its appearance, especially if you are near a beach. Satin aluminum and stainless steel bellman carts are ideal for outdoor use.
3. How much do you want to pay?
While we understand that you are likely working with a specific budget, the reality is that you get what you pay for when it comes to bellman carts. The cheaper carts are not as smooth, strong or durable as the more expensive options. Conversely, bellman carts that come with a higher price tag also look professional, can safely transport plenty of luggage and will be able to stand the test of time. If you are in a hotel or condominium where the bellman carts will be used constantly, then it makes sense to spend more on your initial investment to avoid having to fix or replace your bellman carts each year.
