Using the service
You must become a member of the Shopmobility scheme. Just provide your personal details, proof of identity and a photo (which we can take, if necessary), we’ll then train you on the equipment.
We recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment and ensure a parking space.
Wheelchairs and scooters loaned on short term hire must be returned by 3.30 pm on the day of hire.
Long term hire
For a charge (and deposit), we’ll loan our equipment for use outside the town centre:
|Wheelchair or walker||£3.50||£24.50||£50|
There is no maximum length of time for long term loans when paid for in advance.
You can take the equipment abroad but it is your responsibility to make sure that no damage occurs. We highly recommend that you take out your own insurance as we will bill you for any damage.
Other Shopmobility Schemes
Unfortunately at the moment all the schemes are run independently from each other, although the National Federation of Shopmobility is researching the possibility of a national passport scheme.
Although we are unable to advise professionally on mobility issues or mobility and daily living aids, we are always happy to try to answer questions or put you in contact with someone who can help.
