Buying a new mobility scooter can be quite daunting, especially if it’s your first one. That’s why, here at Luggie portable mobility scooters, we’ve put together a few questions you might want to ask yourself and your sales person when deciding what to buy.
Portable Mobility Scooters
By creating a checklist, you’ll find you put your mind at ease when it comes to knowing what you’re looking for. The first thing you should consider is your budget. We understand not everyone is going to be able to afford portable mobility scooters outright. That’s why we offer finance packages to spread the cost and help alleviate some of the financial pressure.
Next, check your height and weight. This will help when choosing a scooter because different scooters are designed for different heights and weights. Thinking about what you’re going to use your scooter for, or how much, will also make the decision easier.

Other questions which are worth consideration and you’re likely to be asked by your salesperson include:
Will you be wanting to take your scooter on public transport?
Will you need to use your scooter in your home? Where will you store it?
Will you want to take your scooter in your car? How large is your car’s boot? Are you able to lift the weight of the scooter?
What is the state of the roads and pavement near you? Your mobility scooter will need to adapt to that!
Will you be using your scooter for shopping? Will it need to be able to carry other items regularly?
Do you have any disability needs which will mean you need modifications to your scooter?
