The Mobiloo

The Mobiloo

The Mobiloo is a new product to the market, offering a safe and clean changing and toilet facility to meet the needs of all disabled people (and their Carers or Personal Assistants), within a mobile van. The Mobiloo is not just a functional box on wheels.  It is a pleasing design, equipped with top of the range, specialist equipment such as • Autolift BBW 1350 Tail Lift with a 1.6 metre platform. • Astor Bannerman Nivano CTB adjustable height changing table. •  Arjohuntleigh Maxi Sky 2 electric hoist, allowing access to all areas of the Mobiloo. • Toilet with retractable grab rail to each side. It also has a basin with hot water, an internal heater and a side door for easy access by those without impaired mobility. And we’ll supply everything you need to leave it as sparkling and clean as you found it.

The Mobiloo is available for hire across Hampshire. It is also available further afield from time to time, though we charge more for hires at greater distance. You can hire it for events, activities and private trips. Single day hires are possible on a self-drive basis or with a driver provided by us. Bookings of more than two days (one night) may only be possible where the hirer provides the driver. Public events – Are you the organiser of a public event or attraction?  You can hire the Mobiloo and increase attendance at your event by making it accessible to those who would otherwise not be able to attend. We will provide a driver so that you don’t have to collect the Mobiloo or worry about looking after it at your event. Schools and residential homes – Self-drive hire (25 or over with a clean standard licence) will keep your costs down, but we can provide a driver at a more commercial rate if you prefer. Families and charities – You can self-drive at attractive rates (25 or over with a clean standard licence).  Call Jane Douch at Active Impact on 01453 298337 or email her on mobilooglos@gmail.com.

The Mobiloo is a unique new facility. It will enable all disabled children and adults to use the toilet and/or be changed with dignity and respect when they wish to go to events and activities across Hampshire – events from which they are too often excluded by the absence of the necessary changing facilities.

But the Mobiloo solves the problem! It is fitted with sophisticated facilities and – no bigger than a horse box – you can drive it to pretty much any location.

What’s it got?

The Mobiloo has an electric hoist, a toilet, a sink, a changing table and a tail-lift. So anyone, whatever the extent of their physical condition, can take part in what you’re doing. To offer such a basic human right really shouldn’t be a big deal!

Who can hire it?
  • Organisations of or for disabled people who are setting up an event or are planning to go on day visits or residential breaks
  • Organisers of public events who want to make their attractions genuinely available to all disabled people.
  • Families or groups with a disabled member who’d like to go somewhere together and take their toilet facilities with them (you can’t travel in the vehicle in a wheelchair but the cab will take a driver and two passengers).

Anyone over 25 with a clean standard driving licence can drive the Mobiloo.
