The showroom difference...

At Better Mobility, we have years of experience with mobility aids, and keep up to date on all the latest products and improvements. There are many different items available to help you regain your independence - we hope you enjoy browsing our online shop to see just some of what is available. While we are constantly adding and updating products on the site, there are thousands more available that we are happy to provide you with. We encourage you to call us to discuss your needs whether you don't see quite what you're after here, or just want more information on a product you're looking at.

At Better Mobility, we are a reputable company with a well stocked showroom, who want to see you get what's right for you, and to help you achieve the most independence possible. Our business has grown immensely since we started, and we are very proud to admit, it is directly due to the "word of mouth" recommendations from our satisfied customers.

We will never make un-proven claims about being the UK's "number one", "biggest", "cheapest" or "leading online" supplier of mobility equipment. There are already enough companies doing that.

What we will say, is that we promise to offer good, sound advice, and professional service, with fair prices as well. Whether you choose to purchase a product online from us or choose to come into our showroom you will pay the same price, and get the same great service.

Check out our range of quality products, including electric mobility scooters, powerchairs, self propelling and transit wheelchairs, and daily living aids to help make your life more independent.


Making A Purchase

Placing an order or making an enquiry could not be easier. Just browse our Online Catalogue and select the quantity of each product you require from each page and put them into the shopping cart by clicking the button adjacent to the product or, in some cases, at the foot of the page. After you have finished your selection, click "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete your request.

Your online "receipt" and automated email are not an order acceptance; your order is not considered accepted by us until it is shipped. When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when your ordered product(s) are shipped. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.


Shipping, Handling and Delivery Schedule

Delivery times are normally 5 - 7 Working Days unless a product has a specific order/delivery time.

Specific order/delivery times are shown on the product details page.

However, due to the nature of mobility products and living aids, some specialist items are produced to order. Therefore, it is advisable for you to contact us before placing your order so that we can give you an approximate delivery date.

We aim to despatch your order within 24 working hours if we have the products you have selected in stock, which we normally do. If a product is out of stock we will contact you to discuss the likely delivery time or an alternative product. If any of your ordered items are not in stock with the manufacturer, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed or called with details to ensure that you are kept up to date with the progress of your order, and/or offered alternatives where requested.

We only sell to customers in the UK.

Your items will arrive by either Royal Mail or courier depending on what is most suitable for your order. Your items will arrive at the shipping address you specify in a box, and assembly will be required where applicable.

If you have any specific delivery instructions (ie: boxes only, no pallets) please let us know and we will do all we can to accommodate them.

All goods are carefully packed and shipped as soon as they are available to fulfil your order.

Custom built items can take up to 8 - 10 weeks for delivery dependent on the specialised and custom requests being fulfilled. We will always contact you regarding any custom orders and keep you updated as to the delivery dates.

Claiming VAT Exemption

If you believe you are exempt from VAT due to having charitable status or on medical grounds you may claim exemption during the checkout process. HM Revenue and Customs require us to keep on file a signed VAT exemption form, which you can download and print from our website. Initially the VAT will be charged to your order, however it will be refunded by us immediately upon receipt of your signed VAT form in the post. For orders being paid by cheque or postal order, please include the signed VAT form with your payment, and no VAT will be charged.

Credit Card Security

Payments made online are taken via SagePay. Better Mobility Ltd. will never see your bank or credit card details when you pay online.

If not paying online we will contact you, or you may phone us, to arrange payment and delivery. We do take credit card payments over the phone, otherwise cleared cheque prior to shipment.


Guarantee

We guarantee that you will enjoy the quality, service and value offered by Better Mobility to you.

General warranty exclusions:

  • Parts which need adjustment, re-setting, replacement or repair due to abuse, fair wear & tear or to suit the individual needs of the user i.e. tyres, lap belts, bulbs, plastic shrouds and upholstery (damaged post receipt) , motor bushes, normal battery degradation, wheelchair brake adjustment, circuit breaker resetting, resetting user-induced problems on riser-recliners - cleared by disconnecting/re-connecting hand control etc. Where call-outs occur for such items the purchaser will remain liable for the call-out, parts and labour costs. However, we will do our utmost to minimise these by talking through problems in depth before arranging to visit. Experience shows that many problems can be attributable to a lack of user familiarity and can often be overcome with some simple fault diagnosis and guidance on the phone.
  • Damage attributable to misuse or accident for which we cannot be deemed responsible.

Returns Policy

Your right to Cancel

You may cancel your order by informing us within 14 calendar days after date of receipt of your goods. Better Mobility will reimburse you within 14 days of receipt of the goods by us for the full costs of the goods ordered. This "cooling off period" is for inspection of the goods only as you would be able to in store, it is not for you to make use of the goods, nor is it in any way a "trial period". Once an item has been used, it cannot be returned, whether purchased in store or via distance selling.

We request that you mark all deliveries as "unchecked" or, if there is evidence of damage to the package, then mark "damaged". Where this is not done, and the Courier subsequently disputes liability, then Better Mobility will not be responsible for the costs associated with repair or replacement.

If you wish to return an item, then you have a duty to take reasonable care of them so that they may be re-sold as new. You are responsible for safely returning them to Better Mobility at your own cost. Please note that if you wish to return bulky or large items the cost of returning the item to us may be high, depending on the method of carriage you use, this could exceed £100 for very large items.

We recommend that you return items using a tracked/signed delivery for your protection, and include a letter or cancellation slip with the returned items, as the burden of proof of both cancellation and return lies with you, the consumer. To claim under these terms we ask that you take care when inspecting your purchase, and take care when repackaging the product for return. If you wish to return a product, we ask that you return items in their original undamaged packaging, wherever possible.

If you would like, Better Mobility can arrange collection of the product for you, however there will be a charge for this, which varies dependant on the item being collected. Please contact us to discuss your specific return. For faulty items please contact Better Mobility to arrange collection for repair or replacement dependent on time elapsed as per the Consumer Rights Act free of charge. If you do not contact us for collection of faulty products, the cost of the carriage will not be refunded to you.

As per the Consumer Rights Act, you can expect your product to be of a satisfactory quality, fit for a particular purpose and match the description, sample or model.

Exceptions to the right to cancel:

Products that are specifically tailored to the individual and/or ordered in bespoke or personalised for you are excluded e.g. rise & recline chairs in a size/fabric of your choice, special order wheelchairs made to your specific requirements etc. Please note we cannot take returns of any Bathing / Toileting / Incontinence aids due to cross contamination. Please contact us if you are unsure if this applies to your order.

Following the above guidance, please send any returns to:
