We provide a copy of a Safety and Maintenance Recommendations Manual with every shopping cart shipment.

Any shopping cart, no matter how well constructed, may fail when in use as a result of improper maintenance or misuse. It is the owner/user’s obligation to maintain and operate a shopping cart consistently with all safety and maintenance recommendations. Due to normal wear and tear of shopping carts, it is imperative that routine inspections and preventive maintenance be performed to assure continued safe operation of your shopping carts. Some important safety and maintenance points and tips are listed below:
  • The intended use of a shopping cart is to transport goods from within the store to the checkout location and then to the store parking lot for loading into the customer vehicle.
  • It is recommend that all businesses maintain the parking lots and access ramps to and from the store for the safety of your employees and customers.
  • Employees and customers should always use the safety ramps when transporting goods from the store into the parking lot.
  • In regards to the child seating area of the shopping cart, the recommend child occupant age and weight requirements are at least six months of age and at least 15 lbs. up to children who are not more than four years of age and who weigh no more than 35 lbs.
  • Each cart is shipped with a plastic seat flap in the child seating area and includes printed safety pictograms along with recommended age and weight limits.
  • Each cart is equipped with a child safety seat belt. Each store should make sure all safety seatbelts are in working order at all times. Please replace missing or damaged seatbelts.
  • Wanzl recommends that all carts undergo routine safety inspections; carts should be cleaned and checked for broken or missing parts.
  • Remove any shopping cart from service if it is found to be damaged or if it fails one or more of the safety inspection criteria found in the Standard Safety and Maintenance Recommendations Manual provided with your shipment.
