Wheelchair hire

If you are in need of a wheelchair and would like to hire one for a short time, then The Disability Resource Centre are here for you. 
 

We can help when you have a temporary need for a wheelchair

Maybe you have broken your leg, perhaps an elderly relative is coming to stay, or you could be waiting for a wheelchair to be provided by the NHS.

The Disability Resource Centre hires out manual wheelchairs.  We have both self-propelling chairs (with large rear wheels) and attendant-controlled chairs (four small wheels, helper to push). We also bariatric wheelchairs for people weighing over 18 stones. We have sets of leg extensions if required, subject to availability.

Please call us on 01582 470900 or email us to find out more.

Manual wheelchairs for hire

We have both self-propelling chairs (with large rear wheels) and attendant-controlled chairs (four small wheels, helper to push). We also have a bariatric wheelchair for people weighing over 18 stones.

We have sets of leg extensions if required, subject to availability.

We charge £15 per week or £18 per week if you pay VAT.

We usually supply wheelchairs for up to 4 weeks, but this can be extended if necessary up to 12 weeks (terms and conditions do apply).

Please note that we ask for a deposit of £50 which is returned to you when the chair is returned to us.

If you need a wheelchair for an extended period of time, it may be cheaper to buy one – please speak to one of our advisors to discuss the options available.
