Shopping trolley - The shopping bag on wheels
Berliners call it the "Hackenporsche", it often accompanies elderly people and is an environmentally friendly alternative to the plastic bag in the supermarket: the shopping trolley. The shopping bag on wheels makes shopping and transport much easier. This is exactly why the shopping trolley is becoming increasingly popular with the younger generation. Also because modern and unusual designs have replaced the familiar grey-on-grey.
Shopping trolleys are very popular in big cities right now, because they provide more flexibility and simplify everyday shopping. Not everyone goes shopping by car, for example. Lugging the groceries with a bag on foot to the S-Bahn and all the way home is tedious. Simply dragging the shopping behind you, on the other hand, is much more relaxing.

Finding the right shopping trolley
The selection of different models has grown in recent years. Whether you're looking for a large or small shopping trolley, different features or the coolest possible design: our shopping trolleys have something for everyone!
Small errands or regular bulk shopping?
Of course, the first question is: How much capacity do I need? For one person, a capacity of 20 to 30 litres is generally sufficient. These models are perfect for daily shopping and do not take up much space in the home.
Models with a capacity of more than 40 to 50 litres are ideal for regular and larger purchases.
The following applies to both versions: Always pay attention to the load capacity! In the end, it is the load capacity that is decisive and not the capacity. As a rule, this is between 20 and 50 kilograms.
What features should it have?
Once the question of size has been answered, the search for the right features begins. Here, too, there are a number of features that make it possible to find the perfect shopping trolley for your own needs. For example:
- A foldable trolley that offers space but also saves space at the same time. Ready for use in no time and just as quickly stowed away again.
- A trolley with large wheels that brings the shopping home safely even over uneven terrain. Field paths or other adventurous shortcuts are no problem.
- A trolley with extra compartments and storage space, offering practical side pockets and inner compartments, for example. Such a model is also suitable for uses that go beyond transporting shopping.
- An insulated trolley that keeps chilled goods chilled. The rolling cool box, so to speak.
