Where to buy heavy duty cart locally?

Lansing area... I'm looking for a 2' by 3' type of utility cart that can handle more of a load than the light duty units at Harbor Freight. Something like this, but doesn't have to be exactly like these:



There are tons of photos online of these types of carts but I want to be able to look it over before buying. Anyone know of a local business that sells this type of equipment?

Those carts are stupid expensive. I honestly do not know why either. Buy some angle iron, caster's, sheet stock, and build it yourself.

No shop. No tools.

Don't get sticker shocked!
The thin sheet metal pos carts don't last and are overpriced. The heavy duty ones are bad ass, but are made of gold.

Grainger is only a deal if you can get a company discount IMO.

I'm going to transport bit coins on it, they're worth more than gold.
