I just bought this shopping cart and am very disappointed in the quality. I live in the Bronx and needed the cart for grocery shopping. I used it today for the first time and it fell apart! It took more than a half an hour putting the thing together because the instructions weren't very clear and the pieces kept coming off. Today I walked the 6 blocks to the grocery story and before I even left the place, the little black pieces keeping the wheels on fell off twice... while I was still in the store! Then on the way home, one of the wheels fell off! It makes a very loud rattling noise which my last cart did not make. I loved the back basket but it wasn't worth all the other trouble. I will be returning this product as soon as possible. I love Overstock, but I am so disappointed in this product.
Nicely made. Sturdy. I do wish I had ordered the medium size though,only because of storage space. The large size is rather large for shopping purposes. Not a criticism of the product; I should have really noted the dimensions given. It is a very nice cart.
I would have given it 5 stars had they put a better grip on the handlebar. The grip is just a grooved plastic tube covering the metal bar and moves around. I may have to fashion my own grip. I am a Plein Air Artist and, after seeing other artists using this same cart, decided to buy one. This is perfect for hauling my umbrella, easel, folding chair, watercolor paper, artists bag, and the separate basket can hold my water jugs, lunch, etc. I had been using a luggage carrier, but the small wheels don't work well on stairs and rough terrain. This cart with the big, sturdy looking wheels should handle the job. It will occupy the entire trunk of the car, although folded up, because it is rather large. If assembled correctly, I see no reason it should fall apart as someone else said happened. I read others complaining about assembly, but is not that difficult to figure out by using common sense. It does take two people, however, because someone needs to hold it together while the other inserts the cotter pins. The instructions were written by someone with no knowledge of English and are pretty cryptic, calling cotter pins, bending bolts, and the wheel axles, mandrels. If you can read Chinese, instructions are also written in that language. I figured out the assembly and didn't have to resort to my Chinese daughter-in-law for help, fortunately.
I am enjoying all the work this cart does for me. I unload all my groceries into it and then I only have one load to take into the house. I also use it when I take clean clothes out of the drier and want to fold them while watching tv. I'm sure I will find more uses for it in the future. It really is handy. I do wish I had ordered the medium, instead of the large.
OK -- so the instructions aren't really well written -- but this ain't rocket science. It's just a grocery kart. If you get confused by the instructions -- possible! -- go take a look at one put together. I put mine together -- it was a little problem just because of the way everything goes together. I *love* the little basket in the back -- perfect for wine, soda or fragile items you want to protect. Took it up to the grocery store and back -- at a least a couple miles -- and it went perfectly. I save cab fare by using my kart instead of trying to flag down a cab. If this is as heavy duty as it appears and lasts for a while -- I'll be very happy! Also has a built in clip to keep it folded up so it is easy to put away for another day. Highly recommended!
This shopping cart with the extra basket attached is great. The extra basket holds milk containers and so much more leaving the big part of the basket for easily transporting the rest of the grocery purchases. It is nice and sturdy and you don't have to worry about parts of the bags coming out on the side catching in the wheels. So glad we bought this.
I use this to bring my groceries in from the car. Saves so much time because I can load a lot in the cart. I am getting older and have arthritis in my shoulders so this product is a must for me.
