About Mobile Sheffield

Sheffield BID is a non-profit business-led partnership working to to support a cleaner, safer and more vibrant city centre that is accessible and inclusive to all.

Sheffield BID’s Mobile Sheffield scheme provides pavement mobility scooters, manual wheelchairs and tri walkers for use in Sheffield city centre.

Whatever your age or walking ability, we have a range of reliable products to ensure people with walking difficulties or disabilities can access shops and local amenities. 

No blue badge is needed. Equipment can be hired by anyone with mobility issues, whether due to age, disability or injury, so you don’t need to be registered disabled.

Our hire service is managed by Sheffield BID’s Welcome Team, and our friendly staff will also provide a meet and greet service to the Q-Park car park on Charles Street if requested.

Hire equipment

At present, we have manual wheelchairs, tri walkers and electric pavement (class 2) scooters available for daily/short-term hire. We are looking to add road (class 3) scooters to our fleet subject to demand.

How to book

To hire mobility equipment please call 0114 339 2015 or email the team on info@mobilesheffield.co.uk. Equipment hire is subject to availability. We recommend that equipment is pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance to avoid disappointment. 

On your first visit you will need to complete a simple registration form (assistance available if required) and provide two forms of ID (one photographic and at least one must contain a current address).
