​​​​ShopMobility Service

We provide battery powered scooters, wheelchairs, battery chairs, power chairs and rollators to help people who have limited mobility - through permanent or temporary disablement, accident or age - to use all the facilities in the city centre, the Gloucester Quays Designer Outlet Centre and the Docks. We ask that wherever possible you book your vehicle in advance to avoid disappointment. Shopmobility can be used by anybody who has limited mobility. You do not need to be registered as disabled.

Our Equipment

  • 33 mobility scooters (3 & 4 wheels available)
  • 10 day hire wheelchairs
  • 10 long term hire wheelchairs
  • 2 power chairs
  • 2 battery chairs
  • 1 rollator

When you visit us

Every customer needs to register with Shopmobility before being allowed to take out a vehicle. Shopmobility staff will take some personal details including name, address, date of birth, contact number, weight range and type of vehicle required. You will also be required to read fully our terms and conditions and sign to state that you have read and understood them .It would be very helpful if you could bring a form of photo ID e.g: drivers license, utility bill or blue badge

Training

You will receive training to use the equipment on loan until both you and Shopmobility staff are confident you're in control and happy. We will spend as much time as you need in training and entirely at your own pace. Even if you have used a scooter before, all vehicles are different so please don't be offended when we show you how it works. As a city council service we have to make sure you are a safe user. If you feel particularly nervous we will spend longer with you and you may come back for as many training sessions as you like before you take a vehicle out.
