The materials in this cart are very flimsy and the front wheels do not swivel, especially with weight in the cart. I have to pull mine instead of push it because the front wheels barely swivel at all, let alone 360 degrees. When you have to pull it, it shifts the weight of your items onto the back and I don't think the back panel will hold up very long. It is also larger (taller) than I expected so it barely fits into the back of my Nissan Murano SUV...when you get the cart in, there is no room for your groceries that you want to fit into the cart and carry into your home!! When I get the regular amount of groceries that I do every week, I will have to put the cart into the back seat in order to get my groceries in the trunk portion of the car. I am not expecting much out of this cart, nor do I think it will last very long. If it wasn't for the hassle, I would send it back and find one in a store where I could see and touch it before I bought; however, it is hard to find this item in stock in most of the local stores. I think for the quality, a person would be better off to buy the least expensive cart...they can't all be that different...I know this one would never hold 250 pounds, like they advertise it. I would not recommend that you buy this item online...shop around and find one in a local store.
I purchased this cart to help me move items that weigh more than laundry. I injured myself and found it was easier to "push" a cart than to "pull" it. This cart was not very durable enough for me. For items that weigh less than 35 pounds, it can be beneficial. I would not suggest it if you use stairs frequently.
I bought two of these baskets from overstock.com both of them have problems with the front wheel on the left side it goes separately and you cannot use it it has to be used on the two back wheels only there is a problem with this basket
would recommend 4 light loads. with heavy loads the back needs extra support to keep from dumping load onto the ground. my heavy load was a couple of cases of drinks. Had no trouble at all with the wheels r guiding it from my mobility chair. need a bag for small items while shopping. A lot better than the stores shopping carts.
