We have a number of manual wheelchairs and electric scooters available for hire for periods of up to 6 weeks which may be used outside Uxbridge town centre. We have these wheelchairs and scooters insured for use anywhere within the United Kingdom hence the name “holiday hire”, however if you wish to take the wheelchairs abroad on your holiday you will need to organise your own insurance cover. Unfortunately we do not allow the use of electric scooters abroad. The wheelchairs are complete with footrests, cushions and shopping bags and scooters come complete with assembly instructions, basket and charger.
Until 31st December 2018, the charges for the holiday hire wheelchair service are:
- £10.00 for overnight loans (Mondays to Fridays)
- £10.00 for a weekend (pick up Saturday return Monday)
- £20.00 for a week
There is also an additional £20.00 cash deposit required. There is a cancellation fee of £20 for scooters and £10 for wheelchairs.
The charge for the holiday hire scooter service is £50 per week or part of with an additional deposit of £150 which will be returned when the scooter is returned in a good clean condition. (Part of the deposit may be retained to cover the cost of cleaning vehicles returned in unacceptable condition)
From January 1st 2019 we will be changing our charges. The new charges are as follows:
Yearly membership will remain the same at £18 per year.
In additional to this, there will be a £3 fee for each visit.
Single use customers will be charged £8 per visit.
Long term hire charges will also increase and they will be charged as follows:
Wheelchair hire will be charged at £5 per day with a £20 deposit.
Scooter hire will be charged at £10 per day with a £150 deposit.
We ask customers to pay both the charge and the deposit when collecting the chair/scooter from the office. Please note we cannot accept credit or debit cards.
The holiday hire scooters break into five pieces so they can fit into the boot of a car. Our staff will show you how to do this. Please note that we sometimes only have one member of staff on duty so they may not be able to load your scooter or unload it when you return so please make sure that you bring someone able to do this.
