  • Ample & easily accessible storage space to keep supplies in stock & within reach during treatments
  • Chip & stain-resistant finishes for a clean, professional look
  • Built-in extras like mag lamp/bowl holders or a power strip

Tips for Choosing the Best Spa Cart

Use these pointers to choose the best cart, tray or trolley for your spa:

  • Evaluate your space: Grab your measuring tape and decide where the cart will live - make sure it won't overcrowd the treatment room
  • Get staff input: Ask your estheticians which cart features and accessories matter most in their work day
  • Invest in quality: You’ll replace your storage equipment less often, saving money in the long run
  • Coordinate with decor: Choose a spa cart that complements your spa aesthetic to maintain a professional appearance
  • Investigate the details: Learn about assembly, modifications, materials, and what customer reviews say
