Happy lady in a wheelchair

We are part of the national Shopmobility scheme renting out scooters and wheelchairs to use around Plymouth City Centre.


The service is available to residents and visitors to Plymouth regardless of whether their disability is permanent or temporary.


The first time you use us you will need to book an appointment for a familiarisation session. This will enable us to make sure that you have the right equipment and that we are happy that you know how to use it. You will also be given instructions about the areas in Plymouth City Centre where it is safe to go. Please make sure you bring ID the first time you come.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you book your training. If you arrive without an appointment and there is no-one on site to train you, then we may not be able to let you go out on a scooter.

You will need to register with us and sign to agree with the terms and conditions. There is a twelve month registration fee of 12.00 which is payable on registration.

Visitors to Plymouth can sign up to a holiday membership which gives you a three week membership for 5. All hires are then 4.00 per day.

Shopmobility Opening Hours

Monday   09.30  - 16.30
Tuesday - Friday   09.15  -  16.30
Saturday   09.15  - 16.00
Sunday   Closed    

Please make sure that all equipment is returned 15 minutes before closing time to allow equipment to be checked.

Access Plymouth also has a satellite scheme in Drake Circus where equipment is available for hire within the shopping mall only. To use powered equipment you must produce a valid Shopmobility membership card as well as a form of ID.
Please note that full parking charges apply at Drake Circus.
