About Us

The Scilly Cart Co is a family owned and run business that was started in 2011 and currently has a fleet of 26 carts.
Whilst also providing carts for islanders to buy and run, the main business hires out carts to islanders and visitors to explore the island of St. Marys in a clean and comfortable way.
Our carts are electric and make very little noise. For more information on the carts themselves, please see our vehicles page.

  • Easy to drive electric vehicles with a range of 20-24 miles (3 times round the island) from a full charge
  • Lighting for evening use
  • Safety belts on all seats
  • Child and booster seats
  • Third party insurance for named drivers
  • Full instruction on vehicle controls
  • Hire duration from one to many days


Please note that drivers must be aged between 21 and 80

"I just wanted to say a very big 'thank you' for the wonderful service you and your team provide through Scilly Carts...I would be more than happy to recommend a day on the buggies as it was a real highlight of our visit and everyone should give them a go"

"Just a note to say how much your cart company is helping our business. As we are out in the country this new passing trade has already improved our visitor base."

"I can certainly say that your electric carts have improved the Cafe business. Besides that the visitors really like the service and I am sure it adds to their holiday experience. I personally would like to support it more than cars. The carts are quiet and cannot drive as fast as a car. "
