3 Transit Wheelchairs Reviewed - Which is The Best For You?

With spring having officially sprung and summer on the way, you may be starting to think about how you're going to enjoy all that sunshine (fingers crossed!). Summer also brings with it several Bank Holidays and - if you're lucky - a vacation or two, with plenty to do within the UK if you choose not to go abroad.

However, we here at CareCo understand mobility issues and ailments can hold you back from enjoying yourself, especially if you're in pain or find it hard to stay comfortable. We want to help you overcome these problems which is why we want to bring to your attention our range of safe and affordable Transit Wheelchairs, ideal for day-to-day use and for helping you get out and about.

1. CareCo Xpedition Chair

CareCo Freedom Travel Chair

Our first choice is the CareCo Xpedition Chair. This durable and sturdy chair can manage a weight of up to 18 stone (115 kg), with removable/adjustable footrests ensuring the passenger is safe from start to finish.

Easily folded up and packed away, the Xpedition chair weighs in at only 1st 10lbs (11kg), making it easy to carry and manage. Plus, its padded armrests and comfortable nylon chair make the Xpedition easy to clean, guaranteeing an enjoyable journey.

Rated 4.8/5 stars by our customers, the CareCo Xpedition includes many features you'd expect from its more expensive rivals but at a much lower price, so why pay more?

2. Lynx 4 Aluminium Wheelchair

Our second choice is the blue Lynx 4 Aluminium Wheelchair. Comprised of an aluminium frame, the Lynx 4 weighs only 1st 13lbs (12.3 kg) and can accommodate users up to 17st 5lbs (110 kg).

This lightweight, compact, simple to fold chair includes a secure lap belt, 8" puncture proof tyres and a parking brake, protecting you from any hazards or accidents. The Lynx 4 also includes padded armrests adapted to allow you to sit at desks and tables without having to leave the chair, making life even simpler.

3. CareCo Fold and Go

CareCo Fold & Go

Our third choice is the CareCo Fold and Go, which includes a handy carry bag. Similar to the Xpedition and Lynx in terms of its features - light aluminium frame, safety straps, 8" solid tyres, parking brake, padded armrests, adjustable footrests - what makes the Fold and Go stand out from the rest is its compact size.

Unlike other chairs on the market, the Fold and Go can be folded down to a third of its original size and packed away into its carry bag, making it great for days out, keeping in the boot of your car, or taking away on holiday - it can even be included as part of your aeroplane luggage! But don't be fooled by its tiny size; this chair can carry a weight of up to 18 stone (115kg), making it ideal for a wide range of passengers. Whichever wheelchair you decide on, a transit chair can really improve your quality of life.

Providing safe and relaxing journeys for thousands of people up and down the country, their simple yet sturdy design makes shopping trips, days away and holidays easier than ever before.

You'll also be pleased to know that all of our wheelchairs come with a 12 month warranty, assuring you that all of our products are built to the best quality and durability. In addition to this, all of our wheelchairs include free 3 months insurance and breakdown cover, giving you peace of mind from the moment of purchase.
