Pushcart rental in big shopping mall are usually priced at $3000/mth and above. Neigbourhood shopping mall's pushcarts are much cheaper at $1200/mth and above.

Usually a contract will be signed. And deposit maybe needed for some. U will have to rent from the management of the shopping mall or the contact person. Just ask for info from the Information Counter.

The contract only allows u to use a specific pushcart in that mall.

Usually powerpoints are provided by the shopping mall.

However, if u r referring to buying/renting your own pushcart and rent a place to sell, I would suggest u buy as 1 pushcart costs ard $7500. Then to rent a certain location to place your pushcart and sell, will depends on where. Licence to sell may sometimes be required to be obtained from NEA or Town Council or the shopping mall.
