Mobility Buying Guide
Mobility scooters offer you a great deal of independence. There are different types available and prices can range from under £400 to over £5,000.
Our assessors will guide you to a scooter that's comfortable, easy to use and suited to the tasks you want to use it for. We have over 50 mobility scooters and powerchairs in our Showroom, based in Lewes, in Sussex, for you to try before you buy.
Type of Mobility Scooter?
Travel mobility scooters are lightweight, compact scooters that can be dismantled for easy storage and transportation.
Pavement mobility scooters are great for short trips out, going shopping or visiting friends. With a maximum speed of 4mph, a pavement mobility scooter will get you from A to B quickly and comfortably.
6-8 MPH scooters are sturdy, road-worthy scooters with a maximum speed between 6-8mph. They're fitted with larger more powerful batteries, and good for long distances or journeys on-road.
What type of Mobility Scooter is right for me?
Are you looking to purchase a lightweight scooter you can store in your car? Then a travel mobility scooter would be the right choice for you.
A pavement mobility scooter may be a better choice if you're looking for faster speed, increased comfort, and a wider travelling distance.
A 6-8 MPH scooter would be the right purchase for you if you’re looking to travel long distances at a fast speed, and are looking to drive on-road.
All-terrain scooters are perfect for those in rural areas or for users that regularly find themselves off road.
Due to their size and weight, pavement and 6-8 MPH mobility scooters are ideal for anyone with the space, whether inside or outdoors, to store the scooter, while travel mobility scooters are compact and light enough to be broken down and packed away.
What to consider when buying a Mobility Scooter?
If you struggle with movement and a lack of strength in your arms you may want to consider buying a scooter with an easy-to-control delta tiller system. If you’re looking for ease of access a scooter with a swivel seat and adjustable armrests may be best for you. Looking to travel at night? Then a scooter with lights and reflectors is your safest option. The variation in options is endless, which is why you need to think about what’s important to you.
What else might I need?
We stock a wide range of accessories that can improve your driving experience and protect your mobility scooter.
Everything from Lights, reflectors, bags, covers, cushions, alarms & ramps can be purchased to help you enjoy the ride.
