Trolley Bags - reusable shopping bags with a difference!

Trolley Bags Original are a system of four reusable shopping bags
that are used to pack your shopping at the supermarket checkout, sized
to fit larger deep trolleys. In one simple action the Trolley Bags
system spreads out and rests on the deeper supermarket trolleys, giving
you a series of open and upright bags into which you can pack and sort
your shopping with both hands. Each durable bag holds up to 15kg and our
designed to make your shopping trip easier and more convenient. The
simple system can halve the time at the checkout as packing is quicker
and easier without the hassle of holding bags open.

trolley as you enter the store and they will remain open and upright,

Wicker trolleys, baskets and furniture

Wicker storage trunks / chests
Wicker storage trunks / chests
Wicker, sometimes referred to as swamp grass, seagrass, rattan or raffia derives from woven plant and is sometimes mixed with plastic to produce beautifully designed baskets, trolleys and furniture. Woven wicker can be handmade to make virtually any design. Some unique products are shown below. We have all come to love wicker products in our home as it offers a natural contemporary look and can blend seamlessly with other household furniture and mantelpieces. They can offer a simplistic yet bold look.

Wicker chests or trunks in the bedroom can add great storage capabilities for duvets, blankets and linen alike. There are vast arrays of sizes in appealing colours; some designs such as the underbed chest can slide neatly away offering a perfect a space saving solution for those with not much room in their household.

Shopping trolleys made from natural wicker or hardwearing raffia can be extremely durable. The weight

capacity limit can sometimes be far greater than an ordinary trolley with a polyester or nylon bag. Log baskets on wheels are also a great means of transporting heavy logs by wheeling them in from outside into the home ready to use on the fire.

Wicker room dividers and bike baskets are now also becoming very popular in recent times. Natural wicker designs really do offer attractive appeal in any household and even in workplace offices up and down the country.

Trolleys we recommend for mobility & stability aid

Sholley Shopping Trolleys

Choosing the right type of shopping trolley for your personal need can be very confusing.  Shopping trolleys are not only used for shopping purposes, they are used for stability and walking aid as well.  Common questions we get asked are; “which trolley is the most stable?”, “which trolley is best to walk with?” and “do you have a sturdy trolley with a seat?”  Our recommendations for the most sturdy and stable mobility style shopping trolleys are the Sholley trolleys and the Shop-A-Seat trolleys.

The Sholley Trolley
For many years the Sholley trolley has proven to be a stable safe support, giving greater independence and the ability to lean on the trolley whilst walking with.  The Sholley trolley has been proven as the safest shopper to walk with in recent independent Govt. Safety Regulations Tests.  They are recommended by Doctors and Physios for its stable yet light design.  It is not often you find a unique shopping trolley that so dramatically affects the way you do your shopping. There is no rear axle bar at the bottom of the frame meaning you can push the trolley and walk closely behind it without worrying to trip up.

The sholley shopping trolleys are a British design and has been in market for about 25 years.  Recently Sholley’s have been improved to meet customers need. Now that you have decided to become a proud owner of a Sholley trolley, the question is “which one to choose?”  The trolleys are available in three designs, the Classic Model (only available in chocolate brown), the Standard Sholeco Model (only available in chocolate brown) and the Sholeco Deluxe Model (available in chocolate brown and dark blue check).  The sholley Sholeco comes in standard size and petite size (It is specifically designed for people under 5ft 4”).  All Sholley trolleys fold flat instantly even with bag in: No bending. No catches. Simply pull the front top bar towards the handle.  They not have rear axle bar at the bottom of the frame meaning you can push the trolley and walk closely behind it without worrying to trip up.  They come with a park brake which means the back wheels can be locked if you want to stop suddenly.  All Sholley trolleys have adjustable telescopic handles: easily adjusts both angle and height for all walking positions, they are light and easy to use on buses and in small places and fit most cars yet very safe and stable to walk with.

The classic model has fixed style wheels compared to the sholeco models which have swivel wheels allowing you maximum support as you don’t have to tip the Sholley back to turn around tight corners. This makes it so easy to steer yet safe to walk with.  The frame on the classic model is outside whereas on the sholeco models the frame is hidden inside the bag. The Sholeco Deluxe model comes with 2 multi-purpose side pouches, internal front zipped pockets, internal rear three pouch pocket and internal name and address tag.  Additional easy-to-operate ‘slow- down’ hand brake can be fitted to any of the Sholeco models.  This will allow you to slow down your Sholley on hills, when ferrying heavy loads or in wet weather.

So let The Sholley take care of your heavy shopping. It’s unbelievably easy to handle – all you have to do is push it. The Sholley will do the rest!

Is a shopping trolley only used for carrying grocery?

Everyone uses them - be it men, women, elderly to youngsters, we can all benefit from using a shopping trolley. Why carry things manually by hand which can lead to bad back pain, when you can simply roll a wheeled trolley along with little or hardly any effort at all? Not only can you use it to carry your daily grocery shopping around, they also have a lot of other uses to…

City professionals such as teachers, lawyers, nurses and office workers haul around heavy files / documents on a daily basis. Folding boot crate trolleys offer ample space and huge capacity loads, some way above 30kg! Smooth rolling rubber wheels make them a silent choice when wheeling around pathway obstacles and roads and extendible handles make them suitable for someone short or tall. The reason why they are sometimes called “boot” style trolleys is as it says; it folds down conveniently flat to fit into any size car boot or can be stored away into your cupboard at home.

There is certainly no ‘granny style’ stigma attached to the sleek design of Rolser trolleys. Its foldable functionality, good looks and roomy size bags make them ideal for the younger generation. They are great for school and university students that sometimes heave around artwork/documents and oodles of clothes for laundry washing. Larger style wheels make them curb / stair friendly and their high quality robust bags offer many years of prolonged use from wear and tear.

Lastly drag bag style shopping bag on wheels are a great choice for trips to the beach and can also be used as hand luggage when jet setting abroad. Its simple rugged yet lightweight design allows ample storage for towels and clothes and can conveniently be folded down and carried by hand or stashed away in a suitcase when not in use. Some shopping trolleys even have a cooler bag section built in to keep items cold, a perfect choice for picnic outings.
