If you find storing and moving pipe and bar stock challenging, the solution may be rolling carts that store and transfer the materials safely. This article explores five ideas to address specific circumstances you might encounter when storing or transporting pipe and bar stock. Many carts offer mobile storage capability and have the flexibility to save space while providing easy and safe transportation. One of the carts in this article focuses on ergonomics and requires less bending to eliminate injury and ensure safer handling. This particular cart can also be combined with other carts to give you more capacity to support longer loads.

Pipe and Bar Stock Portable Storage
If consolidating different-sized materials on a single cart is the most important consideration, these industrial pipe carts stand out as the optimal choices. Built with three load levels stacked above the lower deck, you can use the area down below for safely storing and transporting other items. This includes smaller parts and packages that you want to keep organized and accessible. Longer tubing lays across arms in a secure, horizontal position off of the large platform. This configuration allows better use of hard-to-reach overhead space while leaving the platform free. This enables you to have ample capacity for efficient and organized material consolidation.
You also have some design flexibility with this type of cart since the rugged construction can fit different casters that save space while providing safe and efficient transport. Pick from models that include:
- Four phenolic swivel casters that have brakes and allow easy, quiet movement over most surfaces.
- Combination swivel and rigid phenolic wheels that have a floor lock to prevent unwanted movement, so users and materials remain safe.
Industrial Pipe Cradle Transport Storage
Another of the five ideas for storing and transporting pipe and bar stock includes industrial pipe cradle carts. Some have extra-large pneumatic wheels with roller bearings and four-ply tires to ensure a smoother ride over rough surfaces. Models include an offset “T” handle that you can grip with both hands to gain better load control. With a 1,000-lb load capacity, they’re perfect for lumber, toolboxes, and pipe up to 20″ in diameter.
With a cradle bed 20″ from the floor, different industrial pipe carts have ergonomic benefits. Due to the configuration of this type of rolling cart, you will bend less and have an easier time loading and unloading items. Materials are closer to most machine heights, helping simplify access and ensure safer handling.
You can combine two or more in tandem to create trucks with more capacity to accommodate pipe and bar stock loads. The dollies have a compact design and wheels strong enough to maneuver longer items in tight spaces. Due to their concise size, they are also easy to store during nonuse.
Pipe Stake Platform Dollies
Separate industrial carts, equipped with removable pipe stakes and casters, ensure rolled goods remain secure during space-saving transit. With stakes extending 30″ above the deck, this ensures that long organized loads remain protected while stacked to maximize space. The removable components are placed at the four corners of the platform, giving you full access to the storage area.
The rolling casters save space while you transport everything to wherever needed. The polyurethane wheels provide cushioning, plus wear and abrasion resistance to protect flooring. Systems also ship assembled to simplify installation and allow immediate use.
Bar Stock Storage Racks
Vertical and horizontal racks round out the last of the five ideas for storing and transporting pipe and bar stock. Most models include holes in the base to ensure secure anchoring or mounting to the floor. They’re ideal if you want something that can free up floor space. Read on to find out why.
Those with a vertical design offer three to five bays, plus a security chain and hooks to help keep longer materials in place. You have access to separate compartments large enough to simplify storing bar stock in a safe, upright position. It also utilizes hard-to-reach vertical space, so you can put the floor to productive use and maximize footprint efficiency.
Single-sided horizontal alternatives include bays with 15″ of efficient vertical storage, which you can use to organize and secure bulky materials. Elevated piping that lays across the arms span the entire area to maximize hard-to-reach space. Models on wheels allow you the flexibility to free up floor space through simple and safe relocation. They are also available in stationary form and have removable retainer pipes on the arms’ ends. The components extend 5″ high to provide secure load retention.
