Hi, I am new to this forum and wonder if any one could help me - I am looking for a dom bag with wheels and not to expensive ( if poss) I have found carring everything a little hard would be so much easier to have a trolly case/bag. I have purchased a practica 3 and although its nice and has all the room I need I find it quite heavy in its self. Any help would be appreciated greatly.
My first Dom Case was a Practica 3, too bulky and too heavy, but very durable. I got my next couple of Dom bags with trolleys from Timesco they were about £240, Canonbury Chiropody have similar bags, but they are more expensive than the hard cases and to be honest although I favour them, they are not very durable if it is going to get heavy usage. You are looking at prices ranging from £175 to £240 +
for made for purpose cases, you may find something as good away from Chiropody/Podiatry retailers.

Dom bags are an absolute rip off! My last timesco bag with wheels and pull handle cost £360. I once got the same bag on eBay for £115 second hand. The best way to save money is to look at fishing bags, they are essentially the same at a fraction of the cost, hope this helps.

Someone on another post about dom bags recommended this type of bag. It looks more like a tool case but apparently it is meant to be really user friendly.
Just in case the link doesn't work it's called a Stanley 193968 Mobile Work Center.

I went to the hardware store and found a great tool case on wheels. Can separate the drawers making it very flexible. Maybe not really professional looking but I get lots of comments from people about how convenient it is and asking if I had it made to measure.

I have a large bag on wheels with pulling handle etc which I got from Timesco ( no longer available). It has been used and looks like the Royal Doms bag shown in Canonbury catalogue. Email me privately if you like and I am sure that we can come up with a price!
Hi Sassie, I have had a Steel/Plastic Stanley Mobile Work Station that I got from Machine Mart about 5- 6 years ago. Comes apart in 3 sections, so easy to lift etc, middle section is 2 drawers that works extremely well, top section (tool box) I use for storing instruments and larger items and the bottom, tilt out section could hold a drill but I use it for storing records, stationery, and anything else that I need. top section comes off and leaves a perfect height work surface for use, easy to clean and I expect it to last for several more years. Cost me about 100 pounds. Brilliant

I second (or third!) the mobile Stanley work station.
I no longer do domicilary visits but found it to be a fantastic way to move everything efficiently when I was going from place to place on a regular basis.
It was very easy to keep things clean and tidy having multiple compartments.
Another bonus is they are relatively light compared to other 'portable' trolleys and are therefore easier to lift in and out of the car boot.
