What Mobility Scooter to Buy? – A Free Guide
If you are reading this article you are most likely confused as to what mobility scooter to buy.
There seems to be an almost infinite choice available which makes it extremely hard to discern what mobility scooter to buy without some clear, concise advice about what each type of scooter is suitable for.
What if we were to tell you we have created an in depth, free guide as to what mobility scooter to buy? Would you be even more interested if we were to tell you it is completely free of charge to you?
In our guide we explore the differences between the differing types of scooters, the advantages and disadvantages of each type of scooter.
We investigate the reason why a very cheap scooter bought from the internet, while seeming like a good buy, may turn out to be the worst investment you ever make.
Many of these will be poorly designed and manufactured and a lot will expect you to build your own scooter let alone offer bespoke set up and full training, in most cases you will be very lucky if you are even offered a brief test drive!
You may be tempted to snap up a bargain from a discount dealer on the internet but it’s unlikely you will get the opportunity to test drive the vehicle before you purchase or receive the necessary after sales care and support that you will require.
Do you think you are sufficiently skilled to assemble a vehicle that you may well be using on the road? A scooter is a bit more complicated than a piece of flatpack furniture and as we all know they are not always straightforward to put together. We would also strongly advise that, if you have gambled on a flatpack mobility scooter and have any bolts or screws left over that you take it apart and start again! An error in building your scooter could, after all, lead to failure and possibly injury or even death!
Another thing you should consider with the self-build route is whether your fingers can provide the force necessary force to tighten screws and bolts properly. There are many conditions, such as arthritis, that will make this unlikely and the attempt could be very painful.
Self-assembly could potentially put you in a grey area where the vendor might even attempt to void your warranty in the event of serious failure of the scooter, claiming incorrect assembly on your part.
In the guide we examine just why you may be far better off getting your needs properly assessed by a professional mobility advisor.
The most reputable suppliers will ask you to fill out a questionnaire about your health and mobility needs and their advice will be based on the results. Ask for a company representative to visit you at home and make sure you get an assessment and test drive before you commit yourself to anything. When you take the assessment, we recommend that you have a relative or friend with you to help with your decision.
A good quality scooter will never be a very cheap scooter but you really need to consider the overall value being offered, such as free test drives and assessments, free delivery, aftercare, reliability and training when considering what mobility scooter to buy.
We guide you through the two basic configurations that are shared by almost every mobility scooter, either three-wheel or four-wheel, and then we compare our stand out, five-wheel design & worldwide patented Quintell™ technologies with them, allowing you to decide which configuration is the right one for you.
