I bought my Luggie Scooter to go to my grandson's wedding. Previously I have always had to go to special occasions in a pushed wheelchair and it is so inconvenient having some poor person (who has to leave whatever they are doing) push me wherever I need to go. The Luggie was ideal. I felt really independent and it was good to be able to get around my hotel room in it too. It really is as good as your advertisments say it is and I am so pleased I bought it.
