TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR USERS

When using any Staines Shopmobility mobility equipment I agree to the following conditions:

 1               That I have been instructed in, and understand the safe use of the equipment and do not have any condition or take any medication that would impair my ability to safely operate the equipment that is to be hired to me.

2               To take care of the mobility equipment in my charge and not to leave the equipment unattended at any time, unless (scooters only) it is safely parked and the key removed. Do not alight from the equipment until it has been switched off and / or the brakes applied.

3               To use equipment with due care and attention at all times, using minimum speed when entering or exiting any premises in the town and also when in public areas and shops.

5               That pedestrians have the right of way, and I will be fully aware of pedestrian safety at all times, especially when reversing or manoeuvring.

6               Equipment must be used on pedestrian walkways only except when crossing roads. When crossing roads use pedestrian crossings whenever possible and always use dropped kerbs due to the low clearance between the ground and the mobility equipment.

7               Not to drink alcohol whilst using mobility equipment.

10            Not to hang bags or other items on the handlebars of the equipment.

11            To return the equipment in good condition to a Staines Shopmobility member of staff at; Staines Shopmobility, Unit Suj, Norris Road, Two Rivers, Staines; no later than 4.15 pm Monday to Saturday (inclusive). An excess hire fee of £10 will be charged for any equipment returned after 4.15 pm.

12            That I am responsible for any persons collecting or returning equipment for me and will be liable if that person uses equipment negligently, irresponsibly or in a dangerous manner.

13            To advise a member of staff regarding any incident or damage to equipment whilst in my possession. Users will be charged for any damage arising from careless or dangerous use of the equipment.

14            I have received a copy of these Terms and Conditions together with a copy of the ‘Guidance points for the safe use of Shopmobility Equipment’ both of which I have read and understood.
