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. We also require a form of ID e.g. drivers’ licence, utility bill or anything which includes your name and address.
You will receive training to use the equipment on loan until both you and the 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 the vehicle out.

You can occasionally hire our scooters for £6.00 a day if you wish.
