Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundles 2017

At Shopmobility Basingstoke our motto is ‘more than just shopping’. So many people think all our customers do in town is shop. They forget there are an abundance of other reasons for coming into town e.g. bank, dentist, doctor, optical, legal services, meeting a friend, gym, cinema.

Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundle

Plus, customers of Shopmobility Basingstoke get the opportunity to go on a ‘Trundle’. This is an organised trip from the office, lead by staff/volunteers which takes the customer outside of the shopping area and off to places they wouldn’t normally get to and sometimes don’t even know exist!

We want your old clothes!

Clothes saleWe would love any of your old clothes, shoes and belts, which we can then sell on by weight – so the more the merrier!

This is a bi-annual collection and raised approximately £250 each time so if you are having a clear out please do think of donating them to Shopmobility.

We will be happy to receive filled bags from the beginning of June

The deadline for getting stuff to us is Tuesday 11th July 2017

New additions to the Shopmobility fleet

Regular users of 3-Wheeled Shopmobility scooters may have seen the new additions to the Shopmobility fleet.

3 wheeled scooters

Sadly two customers recently passed away. Their families very kindly donated some equipment to us which we were able to sell. The funds raised purchased ‘Ray’ and ‘Katie’ – named after the two customers, who are no longer with us.

‘Christine’ was also bought – using funds from the sale of goods at Shopmobility, and coin boxes which some of our customers have at home.

Of course, the newbies have been welcomed by everyone. One customer even said they were the smoothest scooters she had driven in 26 years!

They even feel more stable than the traditional 3 wheeled scooter, due to the twin wheels in front, tempting some of our customers to swap from their usual 4 wheeled variety.

Do come and try one out soon.

Shopmobility on Tour!

Transport Festival, ShopmobilityOn 11th May Shopmobility Basingstoke went ‘On Tour’.

A van was hired and equipment taken to the War Memorial Park so that visitors to the Transport Festival could get around in comfort.

This was staffed completely by volunteers including the driving of the lorry to transport equipment to the park. So a huge thank you to everyone involved.

23 people made use of the service including 8 who had not used Shopmobility before – we do hope to see some of you again soon.

Shopmobility wins National Customer Service Award!

Customer Service AwardIn 2010 we won the Tom Hillier Award for outstanding customer service. Of course, we were extremely proud and know that it is all thanks to the wonderful team of volunteers, as well as our customers, who make doing our job so worthwhile.

Four years on, and we still haven’t lost our desire to provide an outstanding service to all of our customers. We are always keen to learn your views, and want to make your experience of using our services the best it can possible be. So please don’t be shy if you have some ideas!
