Mobility Scooters - Choosing the correct one for you.

You need to consider the following:

Where will I use the mobility scooter?

This is the most important question to ask yourself. You probably have a good idea of where you intend to use your scooter if you are thinking about buying one.

Is it to do the shopping, visiting friends, taking the dog for a walk and will you need to take away for days out and holidays.

One of the key questions to consider is whether you need the scooter to be portable. Scooters by their nature are heavy pieces of equipment that include large batteries, motors and axles. Portable scooters are designed to be smaller and with lightweight components. They also dismantle so that lifting the scooter into the boot of a car becomes more manageable.

However, because portable scooters are designed with weight in mind, they are often less comfortable than larger non-portable scooters. For example, the seats tend to have less padding and be in a fixed position. In addition, portable scooters are smaller and have a lower ride height which makes it more difficult to navigate kerbs which you will encounter when traveling along the pavement. Therefore, if you do not need to have a portable scooter then you will be probably better off with a mid-size or luxury scooter.  

If you are feeling adventurous and want the ability to cover large distances, you will need to consider a luxury 8mph scooter which will have larger capacity batteries.
