Shopping Baskets

Types of Shopping Baskets:

Our baskets come in a variety of materials for different settings and needs. These include:

  • Plastic: available in different sizes, and colours; with a choice of carry handles or wheels, which can transform them into a trolley.
  • Wire: Steel mesh featuring different coloured handles.
  • Wicker: for a rustic look.
  • Net: suitable for lightweight items.

Our baskets are suitable for different types of goods. If you sell lighter items, a net basket is a better option. If your baskets will be placed outside, a wire shopping basket is more suitable as plastic baskets may not withstand the weather. If you sell smaller items but prefer a rigid basket, then a plastic shopping basket is your best option. Basket stackers can be bought to keep the area organised and the baskets easily accessible for your customers.

Our fabric baskets are perfect for fashion and cosmetic items. Many large brands have chosen to print their logos on them. These baskets can be easily stored as they collapse when not in use.

We also provide heavy-duty moulded plastic bags that do not let small items fall through the gaps. These bags are a great alternative to reusable carrier bags and come in several colours. They are particularly useful for hardware stores.

Tips for adding Shopping Baskets to your shop: 

Implementing shopping baskets in your store can increase both overall customer satisfaction and revenue. To optimise their usage, follow these steps:

  1. Position the baskets strategically at the store entrance or other high-traffic areas, ensuring visibility and accessibility for customers.
  2. Display clear signage or instructions on the usage of shopping baskets to guide customers.
  3. Regularly clean and sanitise the baskets to ensure hygiene and maintain store ambience.
  4. Monitor basket usage to assess the effectiveness, making adjustments to quantity or distribution as required.
