Hiring or buying a wheelchair privately

If you are not eligible for a wheelchair from the Wheelchair Service, or don't want to wait to be assessed by them, then you can considered privately hiring or buying a wheelchair yourself.

The Disability Living Foundation (DLF) provides a number of guides that can help you to choose the right wheelchair and other equipment, and give details of companies in the London area who hire out wheelchairs.


Or you can hire a wheelchair from the British Red Cross.

There are many websites which sell wheelchairs online. We can’t recommend particular suppliers but we have provided some links to suppliers websites for you to look at:
