Leicester Shopmobility offers the free loan of a scooter, powerchair, power-assisted wheelchair or manual wheelchair to anyone with mobility problems when visiting the city centre.
All new customers are given detailed instructions on how to safely operate the equipment. Staff will test you to ensure you are competent and in full control of the equipment.
Pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Equipment will not be available for loan after 2.30pm, as this will allow us to sanitise and recharge the scooters.
