We rent wheelchairs and other mobility aids such as walkers and frames to the elderly, and to people finding it hard to get about from accidents or otherwise. We stock self-propelled chairs, along with smaller wheeled chairs for a member of your family or friends to push you in. All of our chairs are easily fold-able and lightweight to be able to put in a boot or backseat of a car. Our equipment is maintained by a member of our staff, and you are shown how to operate and fold away our chairs during your hiring.
The rental period is for 6-8 weeks, which can be extended for no extra cost if needed by calling the office. You then bring the chair in for a health and safety check. The chairs require a £12 membership, which lasts a year and also grants you access to our Transport service and Toenail Cutting service, and a deposit of £30 we hold until the chair is returned.
We can deliver the chairs to you at the price of £10 if required, or you can collect the chair from the George Hurd Centre from Monday to Friday, 10AM to 3PM.
