Shopmobility Winchester

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 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.

COVID-19: Safety of our customers and staff is paramount, so at this stage, we will be taking the following steps:

  • Social distancing will be observed, and new members being trained will be asked to wear a face covering.
  • A contactless payment system is in use! We can still handle cash, but please come with the right change.
  • Handover and return of equipment are staggered to allow for cleaning.
