The Wheelchair Centre is a family run business that was established in 1957. Throughout this period the business has been run by the Mitchell Family and today is under the personal supervision of Peter Mitchell, the Managing Director.

At our premises in Audenshaw, we have a large showroom with all the very latest powered products along with our line up of manual wheelchairs. We only stock products from the very best manufacturers and always ensure that any spare part will always be available, years after you have purchased your machine.

A Fully Equipped Service Department

We have a fully equipped service department, including the latest computerised diagnostic equipment, which is staffed by factory trained engineers who have a wealth of experience between them.

We also have fully equipped service vehicles which enable us to deal with a large number of service requests at your home or place of work. We go to great lengths to ensure that we supply the correct type of product to suit the individual and their disability; this is where our precision assessment methods come into play. Most of our team have completed the Invacare Impetus seating system course, a qualification recognised by the College of Occupational Therapists. This ensures that any product we supply will be the correct product for the purpose.



In all honesty I can’t think of a single thing you could improve on.  I have been treated with the utmost courtesy and respect by all the team.  Been given advice by Peter, who obviously knows what he is talking about.  Sharon has kept me up to date re delivery of my new machine in the most charming and helpful manner and Neil delivered said machine on a date which suited me.  He then proceeded to properly demonstrate the functions of the machine and made sure I understood it’s operation.  I cannot praise you all highly enough!

I’ve been coming to the Wheelchair Centre since 2011.
I can’t recommend higher than 5 Stars, but I would if I could!!
My experience has been that I’m not ‘just another customer’, no, they remember me!
Peter was absolutely invaluable in helping me choose a scooter that fitted ME! He actually understood what I needed! I’ve been back several times for mostly little repairs – which are executed quickly and efficiently!!
You can’t buy that sort of knowledge or customer care … priceless!

Went here for wheelchair for my mother in law. They even let me try a couple out to make sure they were suitable. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Mother in law is happy with her chair. It’s comfortable and practical. Also light enough to carry with one hand.

The engineer came to fit new batteries to my wheelchair. I believe he was a little earlier than expected, not that that caused me any inconvenience, and was quick, friendly and professional about his work. I cannot recommend the service that was provided highly enough

An amazing hire service! Friendly staff, Christine genuinely couldn’t do enough for me. My brother needed to hire a mobility scooter for a family occasion and we were let down at the very last minute by another company. I left a message after hours on The Wheelchair Centre’s voicemail and thankfully Christine called me back. Luckily there was a Mobility scooter available for the very next day and we was able to hire it immediately. We’ve booked another hire for next weekend for another event. I was also informed that Scooters may be available for purchase at a great price! Highly recommended for ALL mobility requirements. Thank you so much to all of the staff.

Extremely helpful and obliging nothing was too much trouble. Every question was answered without making you feel stupid. Every care and attention was given to your budget and needs. I would highly recommend them
