Look at medium-/heavy-duty luggage carts for luggage going on airplanes.

I've moved incredible loads -- like a half-dozen full-tower desktops _and_
a 20" CRT in one trip -- on a good _medium-duty_ one (similar to a "Clipper
200").  If I were buying one today, I'd look hard at a Clipper 450, or, if 
I could justify the money, a Clipper 730, for the folding 'shelf' cum work-
surface.

Wesco and Kart-A-Bag are good brands too.  You probably wont go far wrong
with any such in the (circa) $60 and up price range. double-check the wheel-
size (5" min, 6" better) though.  They all go better over elevator gaps if
you pull rathe than push 'em.  :)

for lot of possibilities

Note: I have no experience with that vendor, google images search led me to them.
