Children's Wheelchair Hire
- Paediatric 13 inch seat
- Stand-out blue or black frame
- Foldable for transport
Our freshly designed Children's wheelchair is an ideal choice of paediatric wheelchair. Bespoke built with a seat width of 13", it is ideal for children between the ages of 4 and 8. Lightweight and foldable, it is easy to transport and store, while large self-propelling wheels make it superb for outdoor use as well as allowing the child the possibility of manoeuvring the wheelchair.
We are also able to offer a limited number of smaller chairs with a seat width and depth of 10", which will fit younger children between the ages of 2 and 4. To request one of these, please place your order over the phone on 0800 025 8005 rather than via the website, to ensure that we can send out one of these smaller models.
Our model of Children's wheelchair is the Invacare Action3 Junior - a lightweight foldable aluminium frame makes it easy to lift and fit in the back of the car, ideal for transport and storage. All our Children's wheelchairs have large self-propelling wheels - these provide a smoother ride when used outdoors compared to the small wheels on transit wheelchairs, while also allowing the child to take part in a broad range of everyday activities by self-propelling if they wish.
Our Children's wheelchair comes with a canvas seat sling as standard, which is suitable for regular everyday use. An additional 2" thick foam cushion can also be hired for extra comfort should the child be spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair. The cushion can be hired by scrolling down to the bottom of this page, scrolling through the accessories and clicking the "Add to Order" button beneath the relevant one.
Our Children's wheelchair is fully crash-tested, making them suitable for occupied transportation in a suitable vehicle. The Invacare Action3 Junior is supplied in either blue or black.
Children over the age of 8 will typically be more comfortable in the narrower size of our Lightweight Foldable Adult Wheelchair, which will give them more space, and additional length for their legs. If you are unsure which wheelchair will be most suitable for your child, please call us on 0800 025 8005 to discuss the options.

The minimum children's wheelchair hire charge is £50 (ex VAT) which covers you for up to two weeks wheelchair rental. This offers a highly competitive price, especially when you consider that this includes the replacement service, and full international insurance.
For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. Should anything go wrong with your wheelchair during your period of wheelchair hire, we aim to replace the wheelchair within 24 hours, and take away the faulty wheelchair at the same time free of charge.
We can deliver our wheelchairs to you at any UK mainland destination, with all areas covered other than the Highlands and Islands of Scotland on a next morning service. We can therefore deliver to both homes and holiday destinations allowing all the family mobility and independence. When you are finished with your wheelchair hire we will simply collect the wheelchair again in our unique transport box, making the hire of our wheelchairs hassle free.
Delivery and collection are covered by a charge of £15 (ex VAT) each way, which we take at the time of order.
