Standard Delivery

£7.95 for smaller items, and free on orders over £500. This will be left kerbside, meaning you or a family member will have to set the item up yourself, we do not recommend this option on larger, but it is free so if you can get help unpacking and setting up, it may well be worth considering.

Free Local Engineer Delivery

If you're local, you're in luck! We will happily deliver any item over £500 for free if you're within a 20 mile radius, however, your delivery cost will be calculated on a radius from our postcode if you live further out than this.

Special Engineer Delivery & Set-up

If you live further than 20 miles from our showroom, your product can still be delivered and installed at a cost, dependent on how far away you live. Your product will be set up by an engineer, including a full demonstration. It costs a bit extra but is well worth the money. They will even take all the packaging away. Prices on this range from £50 to £250.

Collect in Store

As it says on the tin, you are more than welcome to order your item online, await our phone call and we will let you know when it's ready to collect from our Ripley store.


Convert your manual wheelchair into a powerchair with the Motion Assist from Steering Developments. This powered add-on delivers an electric propulsion system that is programmed to suit the user’s individual strength.

With a weight of approximately 17kg, the Motion Assist is a lightweight alternative to a full powerchair. Easy to use, the system has two speeds and is great for providing an extra push.

Built to last and excellently engineered, this system is suitable for a wide range of manual wheelchairs. The wheel hubs are motorised adding power and control at the push of the hand rims, thus, enabling the user to use less energy to move. Each push on the hand rim applies force to each wheel independently, so one arm being stronger than the other is not a problem.

Featuring uphill-assist and roll-back prevention, slopes and ramps will no longer be an issue.

Feel the freedom of assisted or full electric power. The Motion range from Steering Developments provides aid across different terrains, leaving you with the energy to do the things you enjoy.
