Shopmobility is provided by Bexley Accessible Transport Scheme (BATS) a local charitable organisation which provides electrical powered scooters, wheel chairs and manual wheel chairs for people who have limited mobility or Shopping Escorts (pre-booking only) for the visually impaired, enabling them to shop inside the Broadway Shopping Centre and the Broadway pedestrianised area.
How to book a vehicle Just telephone our office on 020 8301 5237 to make sure the item you need is available or, if you prefer, call in and make a booking. To avoid disappointment, it is advisable to book in advance.
We are open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10am – 3pm. We also have an answer-phone if you wanted to leave a message during closed hours (Last hire 1.30pm).
We are based in a mobile cabin located on the rooftop upper car park of Broadway Shopping Centre next to the lifts for Morleys. From inside the shopping centre take the main lifts by Morleys to level 3.
Feel free to contact us for further information or to clarify anything you are not sure about – or pop in and see us anytime.
Bexleyheath Shopmobility is a charity; there is an annual membership fee of £5 and a £10 fixed refundable deposit per hire on arrival. We no longer make charges for scooter and wheelchair hire, but donations are always gratefully accepted.
Do you have a few hours to spare on a Friday? We are always looking for volunteer shopping escorts to help people with limited mobility to shop. If you think you can help please call in to the Shopmobility mobile cabin for a volunteer pack.
