Shopmobility is a scheme designed to help people with limited mobility to access the shops and facilities in Colchester town centre

We have a range of manual wheelchairs and electric scooters to hire for part or all of the day.  

We also have a number of  wheelchairs and a travel scooter which can be hired over a longer period of time for use anywhere.  They are often taken on holiday or to visit relatives.
