What is Shopmobility?
The Shopmobility service provides manual and electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters to people with limited mobility, enabling them to access the city centre and shop independently. The Shopmobility equipment includes a range of mobility scooters and powerchairs, heavy duty vehicles, crutches, a child’s wheelchair and walkers.
Southampton City Shopmobility is situated in the heart of Southampton City Centre in the Bargate area of the city. In addition to our hiring service we also sell a range of mobility items including walking sticks, wheelchair bags and wheelchair cushions, radar keys, blue badge holders and scooter bags.
Daily and Long Term Hire
Shopmobility can offer daily hire of mobility scooters, powerchairs and manual wheelchairs for use in the city centre area.
In addition we offer long term hire of manual wheelchairs for periods up to a month, or more if required. This is ideal if you are going on a holiday or cruise from Southampton or have a relative visiting that requires a wheelchair. Shopmobility provides a delivery service for manual wheelchairs to a location of your choice. Please note the delivery service does incur an extra charge and also requires advance booking. The current charge for delivery to all cruise terminals is £12.50 each way.
Shopmobility also provide a Shopping Companion service whereby volunteers can accompany people with their shopping if they need extra help, or push them in a manual wheelchair. Shopmobility can also offer this service to people with visual impairments. You do not have to be registered as a disabled person to use this service.
