Shopmobility provides manual powered wheelchairs and powered scooters to help people who have limited mobility shop with ease and enjoyment in Rochdale's Town Centre. It is for anyone, regardless of age, whether their disability is temporary or permanent. Shopmobility also provides escorts for people with sensory difficulties, to help with shopping.



All scooters are sanitized before each hire and the Town Centre businesses have Covid safety protocols in place to ensure that we are all safe.

How to get there

Rochdale Borough Shopmobility is located at 12 River Street. There are parking spaces for members of Shopmobility on the car park next to the unit. If you arrive by taxi ask the driver to drop you off  next to Shopmobility. If you would like a member of staff to meet you at your car, bus or taxi please let us know in advance.

Using Shopmobility

When you arrive at the unit for the first time you will be asked to complete a short registration form. Please bring some form of identification showing your name and address. A member of our friendly staff will show you how to use the wheelchair or scooter. You will then have the independence to go where you wish in the Town Centre. It is best to book in advance to make sure we can provide what you need on the day.
