The pre-booking of scooters and wheelchairs is essential, please call Shopmobility on 01724 297418 to book your vehicle. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the extra cleaning of scooters and wheelchairs, as per the government guidelines, we are limited to how many scooters can be hired out. Please pre-book to avoid disappointment. Drop in bookings will not be accommodated during the pandemic.

For bus pass applications please make an appointment by calling the Shopmobility office on 01724 297418.

We run a Shopmobility scheme in Scunthorpe. Anyone with a mobility problem can hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter for free, although donations are welcome.

All applicants must attend the Shopmobility Centre in Scunthorpe for an assessment before they are allowed to use the equipment.

Assessments are carried out by appointment between Monday and Thursday. No one is allowed out for the first time on a Friday or Saturday (Scunthorpe Market days) as the town centre is usually busy.

The Scunthorpe Shopmobility Centre is located on the ground floor of the Parishes multi-storey car park on Fenton Street, Scunthorpe. Two hours free parking is available and parking is free after 2pm. Blue badge holders park free at all times.

There is a maximum weight limit on the scooters. One has a maximum weight limit of 18 stone (115kg) and all others have a limit of 22 stone (139kg).
