Power Shopping Cart Return

The QuicKART® M3 cart pusher easily maneuvers a nested chain of up to 30 shopping carts through the parking lot, returning carts quickly and efficiently to the store collection point. A QuicKART® increases shopping cart return productivity by 100%, ensuring that your guests always have a shopping cart–even at the busiest times.

Increase Productivity and Reduce Risk

Easy-to-use operating features allow almost any employee to with basic training to safely operate a QuicKART®, and independently manage trolley collection. Power assist technology and ergonomic design protect employees from strain related injuries normally associated with manual cart collection, while simultaneously improving parking lot efficiency and perception.

Increased productivity combined with substantial savings from fewer job-related injuries makes the proven value of the QuicKART® M3 impossible to ignore… $20,000 saved every year for each store that uses a QuicKART®. With this value proposition, most stores recover their initial investment in 6 months or less.

Conservatively, a lost-time injury sustained from returning carts manually will result in at least $12,000 in workers’ compensation costs.


Preventing these injuries results in savings that go directly to the store’s bottom line – at a 2% margin, that’s equivalent to $600,000 in sales.
