The functions of a mobility scooter are not in question; they have provided a new lease of life for people struggling to get around. If they can be summed up in three words mobility scooters would be independence, dignity, and practicality. As you browse our range, you’ll see various model types, sizes, and prices suiting all needs. One section that may have drawn your eye is folding mobility scooters. These are ideal for some customers, perhaps you could benefit from this type too?
Why Get a Folding Mobility Scooter?
The main reason most people get a folding mobility scooter is that they like to travel. Typically, this model type is collapsible, so it can go into the back of a car or store away nicely in a closet when you have limited space. They are also lightweight which means they’re easy to haul around. Folding mobility scooters allow you to enjoy the wide-open spaces of the UK’s countryside and even to take the vehicle abroad.
These models also turn more easily and quickly indoors and outside. While we don’t expect that you’d want to take it up Pen-Y-Fan or Ben Nevis, it does mean that areas once closed to you are now accessible thanks to improved manoeuvrability. If you live in a small flat, the turning improvements are a great selling point.
