Our friendly team at Ableworld Southampton are well known in the local community for bringing mobility knowledge and support to the area. Both owners, Jeff and Steven, are extremely approachable and friendly, and are ready to help you with all of your mobility needs. They have both lived in the local area for a long time and have significant experience behind them.  Jeff has a clear view of mobility equipment after having daily contact with elderly and disabled customers in his previous occupation. Steven on the other hand has vast experience in engineering so will be a fantastic choice for installing your stairlift or servicing any wheelchairs or mobility scooters. 
 
Our Southampton superstore is located on Portsmouth Road, opposite the bus station and close to Woolston Railway station. We have great customer parking at the rear of the store, and we are also located on several main bus routes, making it easy to visit us in store!
 
Our large superstore stocks a variety of mobility products, such as Boot scooters, Riser Recliner chairs and Eating and Drinking aids. Our superstore also features an extensive Stairlift demonstration area, as well as room to fully demonstrate all of our larger mobility products to our customers. We provide full demonstrations on the operation of scootersrise/recliner chairswheelchairsbath lifts, stairlifts and much more. We aim to offer you a relaxed and pleasurable shopping experience with absolutely no pressure selling or obligation to buy. We also offer a compassionate and discreet service on our quality range of continence care products.

Jeff, Steven, and the rest of the Ableworld Southampton team have undertaken Ableworld’s extensive and rigorous training program so that they can assess customers correctly and provide the right solutions for a variety of customer’s needs, whether that’s stairlift, wheelchair, mobility scooter or incontinence care related.

Steven and our Engineering team can provide all forms of Stairlift services, such as installation, repair or servicing. We provide no pressure or obligation quotation, although if you then wish to continue with your stairlift it can often be fitted the next day.

Existing stairlift servicing is also available at great rates. From our workshop facility, we carry out affordable servicing and repairs for a wide range of mobility products, including wheelchairs and mobility scooters. 

We are extremely proud to be Which Trusted Trader endorsed for our Servicing and Engineering work. Read what our customers have to say and view our recent Ableworld Southampton review by clicking on the Which? logo to the left.

Here what our customers have to say;

“Very helpful staff in this place practically all the things that you need for disability of any kind. They would help you with different items. I have had my scooter serviced from one of their gorgeous engineer’s even though my scooter didn’t come from there, pump up the tyres too when required. Service with a smile which means good salesmen & customer relationship all round easy for me to get to (unless of course it breaks down, thankfully not happened yet!)" – E Crosby

"I would just like to say a huge thank you to the Woolston branch in Southampton. My brother needed help fast, I rang, great response, then visited with my frail brother who'd left hospital the day before, he was given all the help and advice from staff, great prices well done from a grateful sister, they had every aid that he needed, Lin x"

Southampton Store Save the Day!

We were sickened to find out that John Benson, an elderly widower had his only form of transport, a mobility scooter robbed from him which left him unable to go out or to visit the beach as he did regularly.

The mobility scooter was locked up by his New Milton home but was stolen by thieves so we decided to donate the new mobility scooter to him so he could continue living life to the fullest! Keep in touch Mr Benson and we hope you enjoy the scooter!
