VOOMcart : Revolutionizing the personal shopping cart

CA$ 60,841

VOOMcart is engineered for YOUR lifestyle. 

​Whether it’s wasting 20 minutes finding a parking spot or speed-walking home with 60 pounds of groceries before your impossibly thin plastic bags give way, shopping or running errands locally can be a real grind for many urbanites. Until now. 

 We’re excited to introduce you to a product we designed to improve your urban lifestyle. We call it VOOMcart – the FIRST stylish, easy-to-steer, easy-to-load, multi-basket personal shopping cart.

That's a mouthful but here's even more features we've thought about and included to improve your experience:

It's lightweight

 VOOMcart comes with two removable bins made with water-resistant durable fabric. No more plastic bags!

 Carries a big shop including those heavy thirst-quenchers:

It's compact 

VOOMcart can also be pulled in order to navigate stairs and tight aisles: 

VOOMcart is built to last and has a lifetime value you will feel good about. 

 It's time to introduce innovation to the oldest form of transportation.

Our Story

Cargo-toting, walk-friendly strollers were the real inspiration behind VOOM.  Power-walking our chores kept us fit, connected and happy.  Then the kids outgrew the strollers and we were back in our cars, feeling trapped in traffic and missing a chance to be active. We were too cool and too fast for granny carts, so we created VOOMcart

We have spent the last few years creating prototypes, testing and researching. Our hope is that something as simple as better design and a useful product will inspire millions of people to walk more.

 TheVOOMcart : Patent Pending 

 Some highlights from the past few years:


VOOMcart Timeline

Fine Print

Shipping   - Shipping costs will be added to your pledge.  Unfortunately we will not be able to ship internationally as the cost is prohibitive, and could add up to $ 100 to your order.  Contact us if you are interested from abroad info@voomcart.com.

Duty and taxes - Standard U.S. duty costs are included in shipping. For U.S. customers we are monitoring the tariff situation and if this leads to any unforeseen U.S. duty increases we will be in touch closer to the time of fulfillment.

Thank you for visiting us, and hope you might consider becoming a VOOMer!

Risks and challenges

RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The VOOMcart team is passionate about bringing our solution to sidewalks everywhere, and have dedicated countless hours and significant personal funds over the last few years to get us here at Kickstarter.

We’ve engaged seasoned advisors in all aspects of our business, mitigating risk and building a solid path for us to fulfill our promises to backers.

Our timeline incorporates a reasonable cushion for the processes necessary to deliver on time, however there is the risk that certain elements may take more time than accounted for.

Our promise to our backers is to remain transparent throughout, and to face all challenges with grit and perseverance to ensure fulfillment of your pledges.

Long-lasting design

We are using high-grade aluminum for the frame, and industrial strength moldings for the joints. Our bins and been tested by us! They will be manufactured to withstand the wear and tear of daily grocery shopping with reinforcements at the high stress areas.

Reusability and recyclability

Our shopping cart has been built so that you can put your groceries directly in the bins, therefor you will never need to ask for plastic bags again! It has been built to last for years.

Something else

We are planting a tree for every VOOMcart sold to both offset the company's carbon footprint and to support regenerative farming.
