I bought this hand truck to help move boxes from house to car and groceries from car to house but unfortunately the design flaw does not allow me to conveniently move these items. The bottom plate that holds the items is not deep enough and the boxes and items fall off of the plate unless securely tied. This makes the product cumbersome to use for the tasks that I wanted to perform. The handle also does not extend quite enough...and I am only 5 foot 3...I can't imagine a tall person using this hand truck without getting a lower backache.
Had a luggage carrier that finally bit the dust. Looked for replacement locally. Either too light or too heavy. Looked on Overstock and found several that seemed to meet my requirements. Chose this one and was not disapointed. It is sturdy and easy to handle. It is not too heavy and should last for many years to come.

Easy to adjust and use. The bottom plate is wide enough for most items, but the back allows you to tie very large things. In addition to moving boxes, I wanted something that will move heavy planters and furniture from porch and patio when there are storms. No major storms yet this year, but I expect it do do a good job.

Replacement for a heavier-duty hand truck. Works well and sotres easily. I don't think I would use it to it's rated (250#) capacity because there's some flex when pulling back to start rolling. Works well for lighter things and ideal for my needs.
It's really convenient to have this to hand, especially now during our renovation when I'm always moving things around out of the workmen's way. Not sure I'd use it at the full 250lb claimed, but once you get it loaded and tipped back, even big case pieces of furniture are easy to move around.
