Hi, I don't know whether these repair at your home, but after being ripped off for 45 for someone to come to my home and assess the problem, then being quoted at least 80 for a new throttle pot, I found at advert for "Clowne Mobility". I took my scooter to their shop (which is actually an old church hall) as I don't live too far away. He looked at my scooter and diagnosed a faulty throttle pot. He had several old scooters that were beyond repair and was using them for spares. I left my scooter with him and he rang me the following day to say that he'd replaced my faulty throttle pot with one from one of the old scooters. He charged me 50 all in. It would be worth giving them a ring and asking if they do house calls. I can definitely recommend them. Their shop number is 01246 575716, Tony's mobile is 07855810511 and Ian's mobile is 077729884496 (I believe it's just a small business partnership). Their address is

Old Church Hall,
Rectory Road,
Clowne
Chesterfield
S43 4BH

Good luck!

Can someone recommend someone local to repair my MILs scooter? She lives off city road.

I dont know whats wrong with it (shes just shot me a quick text) - so apologies for not being able to give a description of what needs to be done, but she needs her scooter to be repaired so she can get out and about.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm looking for a reliable mobility scooter engineer who is based in sheffield rather than one of the big shops. Does anyone have any contacts at all?

Many thanks

Does anyone have this man's number please, I think the brushes/bushes have gone in my scooter, either way it will not move though the lights horn etc work.
Thanks

Up date - I asked "Parkgate" to call round, fixed the problem in less than an hour and never charged me a thing, Just the call out charge of 35.00
I can't fault them.

Suzi00. A daft thought that doubtless you’ve already checked. Is your scooter in freewheel?

---------- Post added 24-09-2018 at 19:59 ----------

Can anyone help please? I don’t even live in the UK let alone Sheffield! I live in Paris I have MS and a terrific but aging Pride Mobility Celebrity XL8. There are no PRIDE mobility dealers or workshops that I can find in France and the sad truth is that 99% of the local population wouldn’t know how to change a light bulb �� cook yes but repair is not something Parisians do.

My Pride Celebrity XL8 has been trouble free for many years but yesterday the tiller tilt lock cable broke - my guess is that it’s at the bottom end. I would be so very grateful for a Pride Mobility contact that I can speak to to get advice on how to tackle this myself. MS dictates that I know what I’m letting myself in for - is it a reasonably simple job entailing removing the tiller panels and the cable, or am I in for a nasty surprise? As I can’t stand for more than a few moments, can I tackle this while sitting on a chair?

All thoughts would be most gratefully received. I’ve made contact through this forum as my scooter came from near Sheffield and I know that the Pride Celebrity XL8 was a big success in your part of the world! It’s a great scooter really it is.
