October 2017 winner – Uptick
We’ve all been there. You pop down to the local shops to buy a few things. You remember a few other things you need when you’re there. Suddenly you’re traipsing home carrying far more than you planned, feeling like a stressed packhorse. Thanks to Trolley Master Australasia’s unique CarryMaster trolley those days are over. This clever Australian invention carries all of your groceries for you, leaving your body and mind free.
The CarryMaster was first conceived about eight years ago. At the time it was showcased on the ABC’s New Inventors program and won the people’s choice award on the night. Since then the design and manufacturing have been refined and the CarryMaster is available for all Australians (and potentially overseas) to enjoy.
If you prefer to walk to your supermarket or local shopping centre, simply walk the CarryMaster along with you. Place all of your groceries and shopping in it and walk home. The CarryMaster is incredibly easy to manoeuvre and glides effortlessly. It’s compact enough to fit in apartment lifts and can collapse to a size that fits under a bed. The heavy-duty black bags are sturdy, washable and reusable so you’ll have no need for planet-harming plastic bags.
Drivers can also benefit from the CarryMaster. It fits easily into the boot of a car. Use it at the supermarket, put the full bags of shopping into your boot, simply fold the Carrymaster and when you get home you can use it to get your groceries back inside easily. No need for multiple returns to the car and no back-breaking lifting.
Unlike traditional shopping jeeps, the CarryMaster lets you spread your groceries across four bags, so your shopping won’t get squashed. There’s even a ledge at back that allows you to carry a large item like a carton of drinks and cereals. The CarryMaster’s frame is extremely robust. The handles are incredibly comfortable to hold and there’s even a drink holder for your coffee or water.
The website, www.carrymaster.com.au, details many of the health, safety and environmental advantages as against the supermarket trolleys that contain contamination from previous users!
Shopping life made easy with the added benefit of being safe and environmentally beneficial with no plastic bags and shopping trolleys lying in rivers, on beaches, car parks and other public areas.
Shopping made a breeze – physically and environmentally.
Our reason for selecting this business is based on the quality and innovativeness of the product and its relatively low $150 price point. The design has been ongoing since winning the people’s choice award on the ABC’s New Inventors program approx 8 years ago.
