Best Utility Cart for 2023 (And Beyond)

The Different Types of  Utility Carts on the Market

There are a variety of different types of utility carts in the market, each designed for a specific purpose. Beach carts, for example, are typically designed to transport beach gear, such as towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Paddle board or kayak carts, on the other hand, are specifically designed to transport paddle boards or kayaks, but usually not much else. And utility carts can be used for a variety of purposes, from transporting items in a warehouse to hauling gardening supplies around the yard. With so many different types of carts available, it should be easy to find one that meets your specific needs. However, we’ve developed a utility cart that can do it all!

Pros and Cons of Each Type of Cart

There are a few different types of carts that can be used to haul beach gear, including beach carts and paddle board or kayak carts. Each type has its own set of pros and cons.

Beach Carts

Beach carts are typically the most affordable choice, but they can often be difficult to steer on pavement and are not always large enough to accommodate the gear that your family might need. Many of the common beach carts are not durable enough to handle all of your beach stuff, and if they are, they probably can’t carry anything big like paddle boards or “Lily Pad” style floating mats.

Paddle Board or Kayak Carts

Paddle board or kayak carts are specifically designed to transport paddle boards or kayaks, making them a good choice for those who plan to spend a lot of time on the water. They are often more expensive than beach carts, but they offer better stability and are easier to steer. The biggest problem with these carts is that they only carry paddle boards or kayaks and nothing else. While this may be convenient for a quick trip to the beach or lake, you often still need something to carry the rest of the day’s items such as chairs, umbrellas, towels, coolers, etc. So then you need a 2nd cart for all of that.

Utility Carts

Utility carts are the most versatile option, as they can be used for hauling beach gear, barbecue supplies, gardening tools, or just about anything else. They come in a variety of sizes and can be outfitted with special features like shelves, pockets, or coolers. However, they can be difficult to maneuver and may not have enough clearance to roll over beachfront roads, boardwalks, or parking lots. 

When choosing a cart for hauling beach gear, it is important to consider the terrain where it will be used as well as the type and amount of gear that needs to be transported. By taking these factors into account, it has been tough to find the perfect solution for any summertime adventure.

The Best Utility Cart for 2024

Shore and Chore’s utility carts are clearly the best on the market. Here’s why we think so:

With more people and families enjoying the great outdoors, we need an easy way to carry all of those things we find we can’t do without for a fun and comfortable outdoor adventure. There are many choices on the market, from small to large carts and wagons. The Shore and Chore™ has a competitive advantage over other carts due to its ability to expand and adapt as to fit large, bulky, or long items like surfboards, boogie boards, lounge chairs and umbrellas while still having room for coolers and small toys. Many carts and wagons on the market are unable to adapt to the ever-growing needs of consumers. The Shore and Chores™ standard features and available accessories including bungee cords, an airplane nose, storage for cups and other items, and a bike attachment make the Shore and Chore™ the all-in-one solution for a family outing, a handyman’s tools, or as a gardening or warehouse utility cart.
