What to consider before hiring equipment:

  • Does the company provide a delivery and/or collection service and, if so, are there any additional charges?
  • Does the company ask for a deposit and is it refundable?
  • If hiring long term, is the equipment subject to a six-monthly service and, if so, will a replacement be provided in the meantime?
  • Who is responsible for maintenance eg if you hire a wheelchair and get a puncture?
  • If you are hiring a wheelchair for holiday use, are you permitted to take the vehicle overseas? Are there additional charges, and/or an increase in the deposit needed?
  • Are you obliged to take out insurance? Is this included in the price, and what does the insurance cover?
  • When hiring a wheelchair, make sure you understand how to operate it and feel confident using it; and make sure you receive instructions on how to charge the batteries (if required) and carry out other simple maintenance.
