Using our Service.

Our manual and electric wheel chairs have a strict weight limit of 18 stone. Two of our scooters have a strict weight limit of 25 stone, with the remaining having a weight limit of 20 stone. We are unable to offer the use of equipment if you are over the limit of the equipment available on the day. Should you require the use of one of the two 25 stone scooters it is important that you book in advance to avoid disappointment. If you have any concerns about possible over loading of the vehicles please contact us.

Our equipment is available to be used by all adults with mobility issues subject to the completion of the registration process and the production of 2 pieces of ID (one of which needs to have a photo).

As part of the registration process all customers will be given training on the safe use of the equipment and must demonstrate their competence to use the equipment. The registration process can take around 20mins please allow for this on your first visit and during the user renewal period. The Disability Information Bureau reserve the right to refuse the use of the service if customers are unable to produce adequate ID, operate the equipment safely or failure to comply with the Drug and Alcohol policy.

For further information, or to make a booking, please either call into the Shopmobility branch on Churchill Way or call 01625 613111.
