Shopmobility

by Buchan Dial-A-Community Bus Claimed

Shopmobility is a scheme which lends wheelchairs, scooters and walking aids to members of the public with limited mobility. This allows clients to shop, visit commercial and leisure facilities and have more independence. Shopmobility allows both short term and long term hire of the equipment needed in Peterhead and the general Buchan area. Examples of use and duration are -

Day hire to do shopping
Six week hire to assist in recuperation of a broken leg
Weekend hire to take an infirm family member or friend to a function or event
Longer term hire whilst being assessed for own mobility aids through
Occupational Health.

The service is free to use however we do require a deposit as follows -

Scooter (electric) £50.00
Wheelchair £20.00
Stroller £10.00
Crutches £ 5.00

Our Shopmobility volunteers will show you how to operate the equipment to ensure that you are confident before you leave. All users must register to use this service and will be asked to provide proof of identification and address. We run this service within Cornerstone, 28 Marischal Street, Peterhead.
