Hoist Short & Long Term Equipment Hire, New Drip Stands & Specialist Seating Hire

Welcome to the August edition of our monthly blog. The summer holidays have officially begun and we are pleased to be fulfilling many requests for hire equipment…. remember we can deliver to a number of places including hospitals, hotels, holiday parks, care/nursing homes and private addresses.


We hire a variety of hoists including, standing hoists, mobile hoists, gantry systems and even ceiling track hoists. We have had a number of bookings for our gantry system and hoist unit this month; one customer using it whilst waiting for their ceiling track hoist to be fitted by the local authority, and one client using it over the summer holidays to enable her son to access the hot tub. We love to hear how our equipment is being used so please do continue to let us know office@directmobility.co.uk. Our minimum hire term is 1-7 days, however we also offer hire periods of 4, 6, 8 or 12 weeks.


Following on from client feedback, we are pleased to announce that we now provide drip stand hire. It has proved a popular addition so far. Hire prices are as follows; weekly £15.00, 4 weekly £40.00 or 6 weekly £50.00. We are always looking at ways to develop our hire range, so if you have any suggestions please do let us know.

Direct Mobility Hire Seating

Our range of specialist seating is a fairly new addition to the hire fleet, however, it is proving to be invaluable. Many clients have hired the chairs whilst waiting for their own chairs to arrive from the local authority, and some whilst waiting for their purchased chairs to arrive. We can also provide a seating assessment by our in-house Occupational Therapist if required.

Weekly £110, 4 weekly £265, 6 weekly £325 purchase POA.

We also complete all servicing and repairs in-house so you can rest assured that you will be looked after, long after the purchase is complete.
