This service is available in most towns and cities across the UK so you don’t have to worry about transporting heavy scooters with you if you go to visit friends and family in other parts of the country. Full training is provided before hiring out equipment, in case you’ve not used one before.

The great thing about the service is that the lovely people who run it can also deliver the equipment to your location within the city centre. For example, if you’ve just got off a train but can’t walk to the Shopmobility office then you just need to give them a call and they’ll do the rest. If you think you might need the services of a particular Shopmobility regularly you can also sign up for an annual membership with them.

Some Shopmobility schemes will also be part retail outlet and sell mobility equipment such as scooters. If you’ve never used a Shopmobility before, the easiest way to find out where they are is to look on the website for the National Federation of Shopmobility’s directory. Over the past forty years, Shopmobility has become a well recognised feature of our towns and cities.
