All you need to do is register to use Shopmobility's facilities on your first visit. Remember to bring with you two  items
for proof of identity, showing your name and address (driving licence, up to date utility bill, pension book etc).

Once you have registered you will be able to use the service whenever you like. We strongly recommend that you pre-book your
equipment in case demand is heavy on any particular day.

On your arrival, the required mobility equipment will be made available and you will then be given suitable training. Part of the
registration procedure is for customers to read the 'conditions of use' leaflet, in the registration pack.
