Equipment for Hire
Here at Mobility North London we offer you the opportunity to hire mobility equipment. The option of hiring mobility equipment can help to make things possible that would otherwise be, at least, challenging for someone with limited mobility. For example, hiring our equipment might allow you to more comfortably attend a hospital visit, a special family day out or even a holiday!
Hiring items can also be a useful way to help you decide if that type of equipment is right for you, an opportunity to try before you buy. For instance, you may not feel you need a wheelchair just yet – trying one for a day out can help you decide what type of wheelchair would best suit you once you are ready.
We have a selection of mobility aids available for you to hire. Once you have decided you would like to hire a product, we prioritise making sure that you are comfortable with any controls and that any questions you may have are answered fully before you leave our shop. Below you will see brief details of our equipment available for hire, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
|Scooters: We are asked mainly for scooters that can be transported in the boot of a car, and at times have larger scooters available for hire, where we can arrange drop off and pick up if required. It is a good idea to discuss your needs in advance so we can try to match a scooter to your requirements.|
|Powerchairs: As with our scooters, our hire stock is constantly being updated but we endeavour to have a choice of powerchairs available for hire. Some are more suitable for indoor use, others more stable for use outdoors but less easy to transport. Please call for advise as for scooters.|
|Wheelchairs: On our hire fleet, we have a selection of both transit and self-propelled chairs available at all times. Additionally we are happy to provide a suitable cushion for a small extra charge. Elevated footrests, (often requested for supporting broken limbs), can be fitted to some of our hire wheelchairs but it is wise to check in advance for availability of these accessories.|
|Walking Aids: As with wheelchairs we endeavour to have both triwalkers and rollators available to hire at all times. These are often requested when a relative is coming to stay and the extra stability they offer gives peace of mind to all. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, they are lightweight and foldable|
|Ramps: Suitcase style ramps can be useful to allow access for a wheelchair user particularly when not required as a permanent fixture. Again, it is wise to contact us in advance if possible to check which type of ramp you need. Should a hire ramp not be suitable, we can advise on the various ramp solutions for purchase.|
|Knee Walker: A recent addition to our range of walking aids is a knee walker. This is particularly useful for those recovering from surgery and can be a good alternative to crutches. Customers tell us it is also fun to use and is quite the head-turner!|
