A portable conveyor gives a peace of mind when the burden of moving equipment arises. Your manufacturing operation might be repurposing your equipment and small conveyors to produce a new product, or you maybe you have moved into the larger facility that has been needed for a while now. Whatever the purpose or event a portable conveyor will cut back on the labor cost of having to uninstall your small conveyors.
Small conveyor belt options and accessories allow for a setup that fits your needs. The various options categories for our portable conveyor include drive packages, motor voltage options, belt options, drive mount positions, and conveyor options. The accessory categories available for our Mini-conveyors are guides & rails, part stops, couplers & drive shaft (for LP Series), product indexing timer, product guide cushions, mounting brackets and conveyor stands.

Frequently Asked Questions about Portable Conveyors
- “What exactly is a portable conveyor?” Simply put, it’s a conveyor that one or two persons can easily move from place to place. While Mini-Mover Conveyors are industrial grade, they are lightweight and easy to handle. Some of our portables could even fit into a laptop case.
- “What are the types of portable conveyors offered by Mini-Mover Conveyors?” First off, Mini-Mover Conveyors are of the “slider bed belt” type, which means the belt is driven, or slid, across a bedplate and powered by a motor. Slider-bed conveyors are often lighter in weight than other types of conveyors (and there are many types, beyond the scope of this question). Our portable conveyors are two general types: (a) Tabletop Portables – conveyors equipped with non-slip feet that can fit onto a lab bench or desktop for permanent or temporary use in that location. The smallest standard size we offer is 1-inch wide by 12 inches long; and (b) Stand-Alone Portables – conveyors equipped with stands, and typically with casters, for easy transport between one or more workstations within a production area.
- “How much does a portable conveyor cost?” It will depend on the dimensions and accessories you need. Mini-Mover Conveyors builds each unit to order, and we have no customers who will order the exact same things. We’ve seen really cheap, flimsy stuff listed on Amazon, and we have to wonder about the workmanship and post-sale support a user would get with one of those units. All conveyors from Mini-Mover Conveyors, even the miniature portable conveyors, have industrial-quality materials and strength. They are fully supported and backed by a lifetime guarantee. We offer personalized service from your first call, to years down the road. There’s no obligation if you call us at Mini-Mover Conveyors to get a closer idea of cost for your needs.
