- For what purpose do I need my scooter?
- Will I be using it on the pavement or road?
- Am I able to put it in my car?
- Is it easy to get on and off my scooter?
- Are the controls easy to operate?
- Will my scooter carry my shopping?
- How far will my scooter carry me?
- Do I have the room to store my scooter?
These are just a few of the questions that you will need to ask yourself before purchasing a mobility scooter. We understand that it can be overwhelming, particularly if you have not used one before, so our staff are here to help in any way we can.
Transportable (Car Boot Scooters)
Just what it says on the tin! With a maximum speed of 4mph, transportable car boot scooters are a convenient and lightweight option. They are easy to break down and are compact enough for the majority of car boots, and many come with a removable battery pack for easier charging. With a smaller range of up to 10 miles, car boot scooters are ideal for a little trip to the shops.
If you are looking to travel that little bit further on a single charge or would like a sturdier scooter with a greater carrying capacity, then a mid-range scooter is just for you. They come with a top speed of 6mph and a range of usually up to 20 miles.
Road Scooters (Class 3)
These scooters come with a carrying capacity of up to 30st, a range of up to 30 miles and a speed up to 8mph. They are perfect for rougher terrain and longer distances. You do need to be aware however, that to use your scooter on the road you must have road tax. There is no charge for this and an application form will be provided with your new scooter for you to complete and return . Do not worry, we can help you with this. If you would like further information about using your scooter on the road, check out the Highway Code for Users of electric scooters and wheelchairs provided by the BHTA or call in to our King Street store and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Although not compulsory, it is worth taking into consideration as you are personally liable should the unthinkable happen and you cause injury to other people or damage to property.
