You are advised that certain makes of scooter have a weight carrying limit, which are displayed in the individual ShopMobility Unit. The overloading of vehicles is prohibited, and results in invalidation of insurance cover. The client should inform the member of staff on duty, if they think there may be the risk of overloading. Failure to do so will result in termination of membership. The issuing of scooters to individuals is according to the discretion of the ShopMobility Assistant.
