    Sometimes Shopmobility services them but not all areas have a service department.

    The term 'service' is abused by dealers to extort money from you. There is nothing to service; it's just a checkover and if you're lucky a squirt of lube.

    New batteries are easy to fit for any able-bodied person. If you have no one, then ask the auto-electrician at your local garage.

    I use a wheelchair and can't walk for more than a few yards with sticks, but I can still sit on the floor and change the batteries and tyres on my chairs (and used to on my mobility scooters). I can't pick anything up, but I just slide everything on bits of a cardboard box.

    Careful Sky, they will be taking your PIP away with those kind of statements.
