New Products

The last few years have seen the advent of plastic and poly-steel shopping trolleys which release designers from the constraints of wire so shapes and volumes are changing. Coloured wire trolleys and baskets are available with low minimum orders. New branding options with short run digital printing and the explosion in availability of trolley baskets to name a few of the innovations that have affected our products recently.

We read the trade press, attend the trade shows and listen to our customers to make sure we consider each new idea carefully and then we stock and sell only the best of what we can source.

NEW Polycart Plastic Trolleys

Introducing our brand new range of all plastic shopping trolleys – Polycart ™

Polycart shopping trolleys may challenge current perception of trolley design and surprise customers, but once shoppers realise how easy they are to push and steer, they will load them up with items to purchase and come back to use them again.

Benefits for Shoppers & Retailers:

  • Sturdy non-deformable plastic means Polycart Shopping Trolleys never lose their original shape; metal trolleys, when bent, can suffer from wheel alignment issues making them difficult to steer and uncomfortable to push.
  • Silent high quality castors, (with added hubcaps to prevent thread tangling) aid in-store maneuverability
  • Attractive, innovative design with a choice of colours to help stores stand out from the crowd.
  • Branded handles as standard at no extra cost
  • Long life span – Polycart trolleys do not rust, have a very low steal rate (due to no scrap value) and require very little maintenance
  • 3 Year Warranty as standard
  • Minimize impact damage on people, cars and shop fittings; unlike a metal trolley, Polycart trolleys have rounded edges and lightly flex so cushioning the impact
  • Eco-friendly by design; Polycart trolleys are fully recyclable at end of life and energy consumption in manufacturing, transport and recycling are much lower than with metal trolleys
  • The material and the pigments used in manufacture are all approved for contact with food.
  • Different design does not mean different configuration; all the usual accessories such as bag hooks, child seats, coin locks etc. are available.

Robust and compact, these trolleys are all across the world being used by happy shoppers every day. The UK is yet to catch up with this trolley revolution; at Formbar we hope we will start to see these nationwide.

We offer a “Try before you Buy” scheme – so if you would like to trial Polycart trolleys in your store or place an order, please call or email us and we will be happy to help.
