Become A Tramper Hire Site

Our collaborations with our community and local and national charities and businesses.

Our aim is to make as many areas of the countryside as accessible as possible. Your venue could become a Tramper hire site if:

  • Your site has a suitable and an interesting network of paths that are safely accessible for a Tramper.

  • Your facilities such as parking, visitor centre and toilets are accessible.

  • You have secure storage and electrical charging facilities for the Tramper when it is not in use.

  • You have staff on site (ideally including weekends and holidays) who are able to spare the time to assist users and book the Trampers in and out.

 

If you think that your organisation’s location has potential to offer Tramper hire and you are interested in working with Lake District Mobility, please contact us.

You can find out more about our current partnerships and overall work in our annual reports.

 

Partner Sites

Partner sites enter a lease agreement with us, where we provide the Tramper to the site, to be used by Lake District Mobility members.

 

We will start by carrying out an assessment of facilities and routes and provide you with a detailed written and illustrated report and a risk assessment.

 

If you decide to become a partner, Lake District Mobility will:

  • Provide your site with a Tramper

  • Provide training for your staff

  • Insure the Tramper and the operation of the hire scheme

  • Co-ordinate the annual maintenance and repairs to the Tramper

  • Carry out inspections and checks to ensure that the hire scheme is operating properly

  • Operate the Tramper booking system and membership scheme

  • Publicise the Tramper hire available on your site to the public and members of Lake District Mobility

Affiliated Sites

We can provide support to sites that own their Tramper, under an affiliated site agreement. In this agreement the site has the responsibility for the vehicle, including insurance, repairs and maintenance.

 

We would begin by carrying out an assessment of the facilities and the route and provide a risk assessment.

We will then:

  • Provide training for your staff

  • Insure the operation of the hire scheme

  • Co-ordinate the annual maintenance and repairs to the Tramper

  • Carry out inspections and checks to ensure that the hire scheme is operating properly

  • Operate the Tramper booking system and membership scheme

  • Publicise the Tramper hire available on your site to the public and members of Lake District Mobility

 

Managed Affiliated Sites

We also work with managed affiliated sites, where one partner has ownership and responsibility for the Tramper(s) whilst other partner(s) run the daily hire scheme on the site(s).

 

As with the other two types of partnerships, we would carry out an assessment of facilities and routes and provide a risk assessment before setting up an agreement.

 

Lake District Mobility would operate as a third party in this arrangement and is responsible for:

  • Staff training

  • Insuring the operation of the scheme

  • Co-ordinating the maintenance and repairs to the Tramper(s)

  • Carry out inspections and checks to ensure that the hire scheme is operating properly

  • Operate the Tramper booking system and membership scheme

  • Publicise the Tramper hire available on your site to the public and members of Lake District Mobility
