Mobility Product of the Week

Saturday, July 30th, 2011 by morethan

With August just around the corner ….. this would, of course, normally  be the start of media “silly season” when Parliament has broken up and journalists struggle to find enough to fill their pages. Suffice it to say that we wish that had been the case this week – with the  unspeakably sad stories of this week in Oslo, Norway we wish it had simply been the usual daft tales that the papers usually drag out at this time of year.

Let’s hope that with the non-royal Zara Philips wedding this weekend there are some lovely joyful stories to start August in better spirit – apparently there was a party on Friday night on the Royal Yacht Britannia which is now permanently moored in Edinburgh, it will have been like coming home for some of the revellers!

Here we have just got our heads down since this is a busy time of year and our warehouse is nicely stocked up with a wide variety of products from every kind of mobility scooter to rise and recline chairs to every little item you might need if you need a bit of help with everyday tasks.  At this time of year we sell quite a few wheelchairs and our product of the week reflects a super new product.

Product of the week:

Roma Orbit 1300 Self Propelled Wheelchair – £250.00

Lightweight & aluminium, attendant brakes with locking handles, washable overseat and backrest pad and Flip up, detachable armrests.  This is a NEW product and has been well received and proving popular.  Just give us a call and we can have one on its way to you promptly.  

For occasional use you might also consider the TRAVELITE transit wheelchair in a bag which is a lightweight model which packs away into a strong sports-style holdall to make travelling and packing that bit easier.  At £125 it is a great value transit.

Mobility Scooter Batteries and Insurance

If you are replacing your mobility scooter batteries we can get them to you quickly.  We can also sort out travel insurance for your mobility scooter so if you have left it to the last minute just give us a call and we will sort it out.

Free Delivery over £100

Remember in spite of increased transport costs we offer free delivery on all orders over £100 – we think that it is great value, particularly when our prices are already so keen.  You can combine products and even if we end  up shipping from different warehouses you only pay the  one delivery fee.

Our team will be delighted to help whatever product you are trying to get hold of.  We really do try to offer an individual service so do give us a call on FREEPHONE 0800 046 3949 – we will do everything  we can to get the right product to you at the right time.

With very best wishes

Summer Holidays and Mobility Scooters

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011 by morethan

This time of year is so associated with schools breaking up and families heading off on holiday that sometimes we forget that actually the majority of people are not heading off on holiday abroad but spending their time in the UK, often taking day trips spread out over the summer.

The UK has such a wealth of beautiful spots and fantastic treasures that we can enjoy here at home.  If you are worried that you might not be up to the walks do check with the particular location in advance as many of them offer mobility scooters to rent so that you can all make the most of your visit.  Places like the RHS gardens at Wisely even have “top up power points “ throughout the site so you can boost your battery charge whether you have brought your own or hired out a mobility scooter.

Hiring for short periods like this can be a very good way to see how you get on with a mobility scooter and how it works for you when out with family or friends.  It may be that you really only need a bit of extra help when it is a full day out or it may be that you realise that your everyday life could be enhanced with a mobility scooter.  Remember if you find that you particularly like the model you have hired and would like one for your own use we can usually source them for you at great prices and quick turnaround . Our new Mobility Scooter Guide and “Best For List” could be a good starting place if you want to look at a variety of reliable quality mobility scooters for your own use.  To request a copy please email us at or call our customer services team on 0800 046 3949 and they will pop one in the post.

If you are heading off on holiday and staying away from home it can be useful to have items delivered directly to your holiday address.  We are happy to do that for customers so do give us a call and let us know if we can help.  Every year we find that someone urgently needs a replacement battery for their mobility scooter because they quite understandably are using it more on holiday and it may only then become apparent that a new one is needed.  We’re happy to help but do flag that this is not your “home credit card” address just in case the security processing flags a discrepancy!  On a more discreet note we also know that products such as waterproof mattress covers or incontinence products are bulky so if it is easier to get us to ship to your holiday address just let us know.

Whatever your holiday plans are this year or if you are staying home we hope that the summer is kind to you.

Best wishes
