Frequently Asked Questions
You may order one cart, although shipping is generally as much as the cart itself. One-cart shipping varies by location, although a good rule of thumb is that one cart will cost about $120 for shipping. Each additional cart will only increase your shipping estimate by about $30. Thus, the effective shipping cost will be smaller on a per-cart basis when you order more carts. If the cart is shipped to a residence and not a business, the shipping cost will be an additional $100. Most individuals who wish to purchase one cart generally purchase our smaller folding carts or children's carts to avoid expensive shipping costs. These carts are shipped for a reasonable rate through FedEx or UPS ground shipping.
Our items are shipped by less than truckload (LTL) freight carrier. These massive trucks require costly amounts of fuel which is why shipping is so pricy for one cart. UPS and FedEx ground shipping methods cannot ship items with the weight and dimensions of a full-sized shopping cart. We do allow you to use your own shipping carrier should you find a cheaper alternative.

Keep in mind, however, that full-sized cart shipping is quite costly when shipped to a residential location. One cart generally costs $220 to ship to a residential location and $120 to a business location. A business location must not share a building in order to qualify. Whether you are a business or resident, each additional cart will only increase shipping costs by approximately $30.
