stairliftStairlifts Installation & No Obligation Quotes
Are you worried or concerned about a family member or relative using the stairs during this lockdown? Then take back access to all of your home and never struggle with stairs again!

If so we can still quickly & safely install any stair lifts needed – either for straight or curved stairs. Do call us on 0800 046 3949 to organise a FREE no obligation quote.    Prices start from as little as £1,400 depending on your stairs.

We have already organised a few to be installed this week using full social distance measures.

Mobility Scooter & Powerchair Re-Charging
If you are not using your mobility scooter or powerchair as much during lockdown or self-isolation; then don’t’ forget to charge your Mobility Scooter or Powerchair so the battery doesn’t go flat when you need to use it again.  Below are some guidelines on charging your scooter or powerchair.

  • Batteries need to be charged regularly to keep them working efficiently. Always adhere to the battery manufacturer’s guidelines; they typically recommend charging for between 8 and 10 hours at a time and even if you are not using your mobility product on a daily basis we recommend that you charge the batteries at least twice per week.
  • Only use the charger that you have been supplied with your mobility scooter or powerchair.  Using an incompatible battery charger is likely to be detrimental to battery life.  If you need a new charger then let us know and we can get one sent out to you.
  • During cold weather and when the mobility scooter is not in use, the batteries will gradually lose their charge and could decay if they are left in a discharged state.
  • New mobility scooter and powerchair batteries start from as little as £55 per pair.

A Note On Coronavirus

March 18th, 2020 by morethan

Dear Customers…We’re thinking of you

We’re sure that you’ve been receiving a number of updates like this from different places over the past few days, so we will try our best to keep this as brief as possible.

We’re aware of the rapidly changing situation regarding Covid-19 and want to bring you some reassurance during this time.

It goes without saying that the health, safety and well-being of our customers and employees and their families is paramount and that we will continue to act in ways designed to support you through this and to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19.

Our mobility business is currently operating as usual and both our mobility stores in Plymouth and Northampton are open, taking all the government health precautions.   We intend to deliver the same level of service our customers are accustomed to, and we will be sure to inform you should any changes become necessary.  At this moment our stock levels are in good order and we are taking and dispatching orders as usual.  This situation may change, but so far so good. We will do all we can to limit any potential delays as much as possible.

Also as I sure you are aware Royal Mail and courier service are taking extra precautions with deliveries.  For all customers where they need to deliver any parcel that won’t fit through your letterbox, they will place your item at your door.  Having knocked on your door, they will then step aside to a safe distance while you retrieve your item. This will ensure your item is delivered securely rather than being left outside.   Also they will not be handing over any hand-held devices to customers to capture signatures.

We know this is a difficult and worrying time especially for the elderly and vulnerable; many who are our customers; but we are here to help in anyway we can.   As always, if you have any questions, our Customer Service Team is here to help. Should you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0800 046 3949.

Finally if you are worried about supplies of any of your regular mobility products or toileting/incontinence products then do give us a call as we can organise for any relevant supplies to be sent direct to your or a member of your families home.

On behalf of all of us at I wish you and those you care about the best of health and safety as we navigate these challenging times.

Yours faithfully

Mobility Scooter Accidents & Insurance

January 22nd, 2020 by morethan

With mobility scooter accidents on the rise in the UK, this is why we highly recommend taking out mobility scooter insurance. Mobility Scooter Insurance starts from as little as £86 per annum covering public liability for any accidents and personal injury benefits plus accidental, fire, flood, storm or loss or damage due to theft or attempted theft.

Although mobility insurance is not compulsory yet, the Department of Transport states: ‘Although it is not a legal requirement, an insurance policy is strongly advised.”  We therefore recommend that you take out insurance on your wheelchair, mobility scooter or powerchair.  For more information  call us on 0800 046 3949 or visit our mobility scooter insurance area online:  https://www.morethanmobility.com/Insurance.html

ON THE RISE: Number of logged mobility scooter accidents in Great Britain up by 5.5%

mobility scooter accidents insurance compulsory EU europe

Data released in Autumn 2019 by the Department for Transport (DfT) has reported that 249 accidents involving mobility scooters were recorded in 2018 across Great Britain, up against the 236 in 2017.

Out of the 249 recorded accidents in 2018, 180 accidents occurred on roads, whilst 69 arose on pavements and footpaths.

The figures also reveal that male mobility scooter drivers were involved in more incidents than female drivers, with 139 accidents involving men and 99 including women – 11 were recorded as unknown.

Of the total 249 recorded accidents, 92 involved drivers over the age of 75, with 19 drivers being aged 90 and over.

52 accidents involved drivers between the age of 66 and 75, whilst 32 accidents concerned mobility scooter users between 56 and 65. Those between age 21 to 45 only accounted for less than 10 percent (23 accidents).

Additionally, 39 of the accidents logged included mobility scooters overturning.

The data comes following a year when mobility scooter accidents made headlines, leading to members of the public, some in the industry and the families of those involved in serious or fatal accidents to question the rules governing the usage of devices.

In August 2019, two families came together and launched a petition to call on the government to address concerns around the ownership and use of mobility scooters.

With some estimates predicting the number of mobility scooters in circulation in the UK could be as many as 300,000 – 400,000 vehicles, the 249 recorded accidents involving the medical devices may lead some to question if scooters do pose as much risk to the public and to users as has been reported.

The DfT’s figures are only a collection of accidents where the police were called to the scene and logged a report.

With many accidents involving mobility scooters going unreported or unrecorded, the total number of accidents in 2018 was likely far greater than the 249 number provided by the government.

Despite the 5.5 percent increase against 2017, the number of recorded accidents in 2018 was still lower than 2016’s 260, which could suggest the industry’s efforts to address safety concerns over the past three years have been having an impact.
