Trolleywise is a specialised division of Wanzl providing a range of retrieval services which help reduce shopping trolley losses from retailers across the UK.
Apart from the costly loss of asset, trolleys are often abandoned in roads, on walkways and in parks, with many dumped in local waterways, rivers and canals where they can cause harm to wildlife and the general environment.
This is an unwelcome hazard to the public and under UK laws can attract substantial fines.
Approximatley 1.5 million trolleys are abandoned in the UK each year with as many as 300,000 never making it back to store. These lost trolleys cost the retail industry more than £15million per year.
However since 2006, Trolleywise has reunited more than 4 million abandoned trolleys in the UK retailers - saving millions of pounds in lost assets. Trolleywise has a current fleet of over 60 vehicles nationwide which patrol trolley hotspots in local communities.
Trolleywise works closely with the Canal & River Trust as well as DEFRA in all relevant trolley retrieval environments. Operating specialised vehicles and recovery equipment, Trolleywise is able to retrive trolleys from waterways and canals and other difficult or hazardous locations.
All Trolleywise operations are carried out in full compliance with revelant Health and Safety practice by highly experienced, qualified personnel, providing customers with peace of mind, knowing that Trolleywise provide a completely professional service.
