Nelson ice cream cart

Circus Ice Cream has several pushcarts that are rented out on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to rent one or more of our pushcarts, call or email us as soon as possible so we can get you on the schedule.  Please try to give us at least two days notice on all cart rentals.

Rental includes an umbrella and ramps to load and unload the cart.  We will stock the cart and load and unload it for you here at our warehouse.  Rental fees must be paid at the time the cart is reserved and are nonrefundable.  All other items must be paid for in full at the time the cart is picked up. Renters must leave a credit card number as a "security deposit".  The credit card will not be charged unless the pushcart is returned damaged, late, parts are missing or the unit needs to be cleaned.

The pushcarts are equipped with cold-plate freezers which allow them to remain unplugged for long periods of time and maintain their temperature. An electric cord is also provided if you want to plug in the cart.
We plug the cart in two days before the rental date to ensure that it is cold.  The carts are stocked the day before the pick up date. Cancellations made after the cart is stocked will result in a 15 % restocking fee.  We do not accept ice cream returns.

Cart rental includes ramps for loading and unloading - unless you have a trailer and don't require them. The cart will fit in the back of a full-size pickup truck. The cart must be strapped down - bungee cords will not work.  We will not load carts into minivans or SUV's.
