What is Shopmobility?
You may be aware from recent reports in the press, that Darlington Borough Council has reduced the amount it pays DAD to run the Shopmobility service. Regrettably this means we have to implement a charge for hiring all Shopmobility equipment and as of the 1st December will be charging £2 per hire. The Shopmobility opening times will also alter from 1st Dec; we will be loaning equipment between the hours of 9:45am - 4:30 pm. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that you will continue to use the service.
Long Term Loans
Shopmobility now operates a long term loan system for manual wheelchairs. The cost is £20 per week, with a £20 refundable deposit. Overnight loans are also possible. More information is available from the Shopmobility service.
Conditions of Hire
For the benefit of any new or indeed regular customers, please read the conditions of hire of using manual/electric wheelchairs supplied by Shopmobility.
We would be grateful if our customers would read and take note of these safety considerations before hiring, thank you.
How Does Shopmobility Operate?
Manual/electric wheelchairs can be booked by calling in or telephoning the Shopmobility centre on 01325 489999. New customers can register with the service by filling in a simple registration form. All customers will be shown how to operate the equipment by trained staff and insurance cover is provided.
Where to park?
Free parking is available for customers, Monday to Saturday under the covered forecourt area of the Town Hall Council Chamber. Staff are available if necessary to bring a wheelchair or scooter to you at your car. You will have to arrange this service and a parking space when you book. If you intend to arrive by Ring-a-Ride, car or taxi, a drop-off stop is available close to the centre at Feethams.
