Finding Scooters for Sale: What to Look for in a Scooter for Medical, Disability or Handicap Purposes
You are looking for disability scooters for sale online. You need something for yourself—or for a loved one—that will offer safety, mobility, easy usability and portability. However, finding a mobility scooter that meets all these requirements is more difficult than you might realise. Many mobility scooters, for instance, are so large and heavy that they cannot be folded up or otherwise readily disassembled. These scooters can only be transported in larger vehicles and usually only if there is a lift. They are extremely difficult to take on trains, buses or planes, if not impossible.
Even if you are limited in terms of mobility, that doesn’t mean you can’t still get around. Even patients who can’t walk far on their own, or who struggle with balance, can still travel and can sometimes even still drive. For these individuals, though, the mobility scooter can sometimes turn into an impediment of its own. It makes getting around easier right up to the moment that the scooter needs to be loaded into the boot of the car to go to the supermarket or visit the museum.
Finding a Better Handicap Scooter for Sale
To avoid a situation where you (or a loved one) have a mobility scooter that makes travel harder rather than easier, focus on these factors as you shop for a scooter:
- Weight: Weight matters with a scooter. Even the supposedly ‘lightweight’ scooters often weigh 25kg or more. These scooters are difficult to lift—especially for someone who struggles with mobility already—and are often too unwieldy to be portable. At Travelscoot, our medical scooter for sale is something genuinely different: a scooter that only weighs 15kg with the battery included. It is truly the lightest mobility scooter in the world.
- Portability: Even a lightweight scooter can be a problem if it’s not designed to be portable. The Travelscoot is meant for the road though—whether that means a car, a bus, a train or a plane. The scooter can easily be folded up and packed away just about anywhere, and the battery is small enough that the scooter meets airline requirements for carry on travel. With our scooter, it’s easier than ever for people with mobility issues to travel on their own.
- Durability: Especially if you are going to be taking your scooter for rides around the neighbourhood, jaunts through the park and on holiday, you definitely need a scooter that can stand the test of time. That’s what you’ll get with Travelscoot. When you purchase one of our handicap scooters for sale, you get a high quality unit crafted from aircraft grade aluminium. This is extremely durable in spite of its minimal weight. Each scooter also comes backed with a two year warranty to ensure your peace of mind.
