Marsanz are one of the top 2 European trolley manufactures - they produce a fantastic product that meets all European safety standards.

Plastic Supermarket Trolleys - The future of shopping »
Formbar are pleased to announce that we are the exclusive UK distributors for the Polycart range of innovative plastic shopping trolleys. Although the term plastic is seen as a negative these trolleys do not deform or rust meaning little maintenance is required. They are also sturdy and lightweight and the rounded edges mean less damage is done if the trolley was to hit any fixtures in a store, or hit a parked vehicle. However, if they do get damaged in any way any broken parts can be recycled as can the whole trolley. The manufacturing process is clean and eco - friendly unlike the tradition wire trolley. Polycart trolleys have no scrap value as there is no metal, meaning money is saved from not having to re purchase stolen ones. These trolleys come in an array of colours which customers will love as it is unique to see. Not only is the colour choice appealing but these trolleys are silent and easy to move making the store a quieter and a more relaxed environment. View more benefits .

We have two sizes available in our hybrid style trolleys made by Araven. They have the same benefits as our plastic trolleys just with metal legs to give a unique look. The hybrid moves 360°.
Storage & Security »
If you have trolleys it is important to have a trolley park or a return point for them. This prevents damage to them as well as theft. It is a way of showing the customers where they can find the trolleys and where they return them also.
We offer both a repair service and a refurbishing service. No matter how old or where your trolley came from our engineers will come to visit you and fix what they can, or alternatively take the trolleys away and refurbish them whilst lending you our trolleys so you do not have to worry about hiring elsewhere.
It is important to keep your logo and company colours shown throughout your business and in all your products. We offer many branding opportunities on our products including bespoke colours and logo printing, this is available on most of our products. We have standard colours in all products however if there is a specific colour you were after we can try and source it for you at an additional charge, just pick your product and contact us with your requirements.
If you need to have extra trolleys/baskets whether than be just 5 or 100 we are happy to lend them to you for as long as you need and we will pick them up once you have finished with them so you have not got to worry about storing them. Hiring trolleys is an excellent way of allowing more customers to shop in your store at those busy sale periods such as Christmas. We have a choice of two trolleys and a basket for you to have. Contact us today with your requirements.
Often the first item a customer touches in a store is the basket they are going to fill with their shopping, which gives a first impression of the store. In order to create a good first impression your baskets need to be strong yet light and have a comfortable handle, as well as being the right size and shape. They also need to be stacked neatly so that floor space isn’t taken up. So, it is important you have the perfect basket...
We offer a huge choice of high-quality wire and plastic baskets and the stackers to match. All our baskets are available in a range of colours as standard or we have bespoke colours produced to order, this ensures that your brand colours and shown throughout the store. There are different branding options for the baskets and for certain ones we can offer a branding service on as little as 50 in an order! We offer a very competitive volume discount so call for your personal quote.

If you are looking for a traditional rectangular shape or something that will really stand out in the crowd, we have a solution for you. Plastic baskets are the easiest to brand and there are different options for applying logos or strap lines. Email us your logo and requirements and we will be happy to provide a branding quote.

These are more attractive, ergonomic and hold more, which suit a variety of retailers from farm shops to delis to pharmacies and department stores. We have standard handle colours however we can have bespoke colours produced to match your brand. The Ellipse can be coated so that it is the traditional metallic or even brass, we have other colours for powder coating too so please call us for more information.

Trolley Baskets »
The well-loved trolley baskets are becoming increasingly more popular by customers and there is no surprise as they are easy and hassle free. Manufacturers’ studies show that if trolley baskets are available the customer will purchase more as they’ll be spending more time in the store as a result of not having to carry a heavy basket. We have different shapes and volumes in stock, so we will have the right option for your store.
Produce Crates »
Produce crates have been used in stock rooms and grocery displays for a long time and now they are an integral part of the online shopping process. With online shopping becoming increasingly popular there is a higher demand for produce crates. The advantage we have over other crates is that ours nest inside each other when not in use and stack safely on top of each other when full of produce, this saves you floor space. These are available in a variety of colours and 2 volumes. We are seeing retailers order these more and more as standard for new store openings and re-fits.
Formbar opened in 2005 by Simon Nickson. Simon was working for a company that held the UK importers agreement for Marsanz Shopping Trolleys and Zest Polyurethane Coatings. Unfortunately, this company went under and Simon was offered these two distributorships. Over the years Simon has added further products that complimented the Shopping Trolleys by including a wide range of hand baskets, rolling trolley baskets and accessories. Formbar is a small business and thrives on all the advantages this brings. No call centres, no big corporate machine to make pricing decisions, tailored service to each customer, friendly customer service and simple ordering processes. Our customers are independent retailers, convenience stores, garden centres, warehouses, distribution centres, departments stores, large chain stores and more.
