Rated 2 out of 5 by The Horn Book from Hard to get the wheels on. We had a difficult time getting the wheels to fit into the inserts, and had to hammer them in, although the instructions made it sound like it would be easy to put the wheels in. Demco did send us new inserts when we told them about the problem, but we couldn't get the original inserts out, so we just hammered more deeply; the result is a cart that's a bit unwieldy to move. (On the plus side, its book-holding capacity is good. We also ordered a flat cart, which had a much lesser degree of the same problem, and that cart now moves fine.) We also thought the cost of shipping was pretty high - for two carts, around $300 each, the shipping charge was around $200.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sdholmbe from Great Cart, So Pretty! I ordered this cart in Sun Drop just a couple of weeks ago. It shipped very fast. I love the bright color and so do my students. I only have one complaint: Why did Demco start putting the raised diagonal stripes on the flat vertical ends of these carts? I had purchased some 8 1/2 " X 11" magnetic picture frames so that I could easily display small posters or info on the ends of this cart. The frame will not stay on at all because of the raised stripes. I see that as a design flaw. I can't think of another reason the stripes would be on there except to add design. Please think of how librarians might use that surface and don't change the good thing you had. That is the only reason for 4, not 5 stars. I was very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RushHenriettaSHS from Fabulous! These book carts are absolutely fabulous!! They are sturdy and the colors are beautiful. They really brighten up any space. One small thing...the colors are slightly lighter than depicted in the catalog or on screen. No big deal...love them anyway!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Northern from Does the job and looks great I ordered this cart because my old shelving cart did not look so great. It did not go with they style of the library. I loved the green color when I saw it so I decided this year to purchase it. There was two minor problems. The first problem was that black part that attaches the wheel was missing. So I had to wait for that part to be mailed. It came and the custodians put it together. The second issue was that it was smaller than my original (ugly) cart. I do wish it was bigger. Overall though, I am happy with the cart and it looks wonderful in the library. The wheels are good quality and moving the cart is no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PastorErik from Very well designed and well made We bought this to store hymnals and Bibles in our chapel space, and it works perfectly. I particularly like that it is one solid unit with no assembly required except attaching the wheels. I'm sure this will stand up for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lily from The best I've ever seen! I have worked in six different libraries over the course of my professional career. Needless to say, I have worked with lots of different booktrucks and carts. This one is by far the best I've ever seen. It is sturdy, stable, and easy to maneuver. I bought three of them in different sizes last spring and will probably buy more this school year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by librarianpam from Very sturdy and well-made I made the mistake of buying a cheaper version from another company when we needed another book truck. I have had my original for 7 years and I'm sure it will last forever. Best quality book truck on the market in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ms370 from Dented but useable I bought this about 6 weeks ago. It works great, but 2 of the shelves were dented when I received it. Too much trouble to call customer service, etc. so living with the dents.
