Absolutely. It would have served me better to have a small cart for my hardware tub. It had wheels but was so big and awkward you could hardly roll it.
I love the golf case I'm using now. It's got wheels and it's easy to handle. Perfect for what I need. I keep 2 cymbals stands, 1 hat stand, 1 snare stand, 1 floor tom stand, 1 throne base, and 3 clamp/boom arms in it. In addition to my cow bell, stick bag, and tool box.
