Bristol Shopmobility is a charity which hires mobility equipment to a wide range of users.

The fleet includes manual and powered electric wheelchairs plus mobility scooters suitable for anyone up to 39 stones in weight. Also available are foldable scooters that fit into a car boot. Hire is by the hour between 10am and 4.30pm Monday to Saturday.

The service is available on bank holidays but not Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter Sunday. The hire charge is £1.50 per hour with a maximum daily charge of £5 for wheelchairs and £7 for scooters.

Delivery of Shopmobility equipment to local hotels can also be arranged for visitors to our city if and when required.

Shopmobility is located in the Cabot Circus shopping centre car park and is open Monday – Saturday from 10am until 17:00. All equipment must be returned by 4.30pm.

How it works

Anyone with an impairment making access to Bristol Shopping Quarter’s shops difficult can use the service. It doesn’t matter whether that impairment is permanent or temporary.

For people wishing to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter overnight, on holiday, or while recovering from an operation, longer term hire is available. The charge for this service is £5/£7 per day with a fully refundable deposit paid at the start of the hire period.

Users are advised to book by phone, to ensure a suitable vehicle is available. Vehicles can be delivered to homes within a 15 mile radius although there is an additional charge for this and advance booking is essential. The team are also able to meet clients at the bus station or in Union Street.

There is a simple registration form plus a short assessment and training session for first-time users. Clients must be aged 16 or over to use the powered equipment.

Car Parking

Users of the Bristol Shopmobility service enjoy up to five hours free parking in the Cabot Circus car park when they hire equipment.
