As an American manufacturer of machinery and equipment for a variety of industries, we have always lived with the obstacle of moving various heavy and awkward components to and from different locations within our plant. Spanning nearly two decades, our lead engineer has always done a remarkable job of “putting together” makeshift dollies and carts for us to facilitate the need for each item needing moved.
In the first quarter of 2017, curiosity got the better of him so he sat down to estimate what would become an astonishing fact. After nearly twenty years and the development of roughly fifty different carts and dollies, he had calculated the approximate man hours, materials and costs associated with developing them and his findings were absolutely shocking. The approximate amount of time, resources and money that had been put in to just “moving stuff” was so astronomical, that after factoring it into our operational costs… Well, lets just say we try not to even think about it anymore.
After our findings, it was agreed upon that we needed to implement a solution that would result in a more economical way to simply move things around our facility. A way was required that wasn’t going to cost an exuberant amount beyond our standard operational costs. A collaborative effort was instigated to develop the ultimate moving cart. We needed a cart that could move many different things regardless of size and shape up to a certain amount of weight. Hence, the concept for the Mick was born.
After a long and grueling collaborative effort for over a year, our engineer and the rest of our team finally found what we set out to search for. A way to make a lightweight cart that could be used by anyone to move things up to one thousand pounds. A cart unique enough that it could be changed to multiple different configurations and move a large variety of things in various shapes and sizes.
After many sleepless nights and countless prototypes featuring multiple designs, various removable component ideas, a variety of different wheel options and too many measurements that we’d care to mention, the final Mick design was stamped with our approval. After various tests and focus groups, our final version includes a removable kick plate, a U shaped push and pull handle and side rails with optional extension poles. Our new, innovative self contained cart was ready to be fine tuned. After the cart was finalized, we added a unique chassis design that gives the Mick the ability to perform a 0˚ turn radius with a full payload up to 1000 lbs.
The Mick was born and ready to be patented! After the dust settled from all of the legal mumbo jumbo, we only had one very important detail left to take care of before we could unleash it upon the world. We needed to carefully decide what colors we wanted the Mick to be available in. After much consideration and research on popular colors, our team decided on red, blue, green, and silver. We hope that you are pleased with the choices we’ve made and you are excited about this amazing, proudly American made cart as much as we are! Thanks for visiting MoveWithMick.com
***Please note that if carrying a heavy payload up to 1000 lbs. on the cart, the weight is required to be placed evenly and centered on the three non-scuff pads located on the top portion of the cart chassis so the total weight can be evenly distributed. Under no circumstance should the sole weight of a heavy object or objects be placed on the side rails or handle(s) when located in the horizontal position of the Mick. These components were designed for integration into the Mick cart only to increase stability, balance out weight distribution and to deter part or all of the payload from falling off of the cart. Such an event could trigger weight transference which could redistribute payload weight on the cart resulting in the tipping of the cart which could cause serious injury or death. Under no circumstance, should there only be an abundance of weight placed on the side rails or handle(s) when in the horizontal position or the Mick at any time. Bold Innovation Group, Inc will not be held liable for any misuse of the Mick cart.
