Shopmobility Chichester

Is limited mobility affecting your ability to get around and go about your day?

Shopmobility is here to provide you with a wide selection of mobility equipment to help you access the places you need to go.

You can hire our equipment via home delivery to support independent living, or you can access our City Centre service for visiting local facilities. Longer term hire of equipment is also an option if you are going on holiday, visiting the district or need support at home.

How does it work?

Anyone aged 16+*, who needs assistance to be independently mobile in the town centre and local area, can hire our mobility equipment.

First time using a mobility scooter or electric wheelchair? No worries, we will give advice and training to all users.

This includes:

  • Showing you how to operate equipment safely
  • A practice session before going out into town
  • Advice on which equipment best suits your needs
  • Advice about buying equipment, if this is something you are considering.

*Please note there is a minimum age requirement of 16 years for hire of power chairs and scooters.

Membership & Fees

The cost of hire is from £5 per day for electric scooters or from £4 per day for manual wheelchairs.

You can get more for your money by signing up for our annual membership fee of £10. If you choose to take out Annual Membership, you will be entitled to use certain other schemes across the South such as Winchester, Fareham, Portsmouth, West Quay Shopping Centre, Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton.

More details about the service can be found in our Shopmobility Leaflet March 2019.
