Direct Mobility Hire Ltd 
Direct Mobility Hire Ltd started its young business life in 1989 trading as Homecare, based in SW London. It was set up by an occupational therapist and specialised in a small range of products offering short time hire. This proved to be an invaluable service used by local hospitals and hotels. There was sometimes confusion over the trading name being associated with carers rather than equipment, therefore it was decided to change the name, and in 1999 Direct Mobility Hire Ltd was born.

The business grew steadily and now offers an extensive range of equipment. We relocated to larger premises in North London where we now offer, by our own trained technicians, delivery, installation, sales, service and repair to most types of mobility and patient lifting equipment throughout the South East of England. We enjoy close working relationships with the NHS and private hospitals along with many nursing agencies, hotels, travel companies and advice organisations.

We pride ourselves on the quality and range of equipment offered and the service that we provide. Our mission statement encapsulates our vision.

“Providing the service to meet the need”

Although our staff have many years of experience within the mobility industry and can advise you on the types of equipment and suitability within an environment, we are not able to assess specific patient needs. If you require an assessment of your needs you should contact a healthcare professional. You can contact our in house healthcare professional for guidance by email on

All items are available to purchase, new or ex-hire, please call for prices. It may be more cost effective to purchase some items if required for a period of 6 weeks or more. If the item you require is not listed in our brochure please call us to discuss, we are able to source most items.
