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.
Important – Please read our ‘Wheelchair hire Covid-19 information sheet’ to learn about the steps that The Disability Resource Centre have put into place to minimise the risk of infection from Covid-19.
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.
