Folding mobility scooters make use of the latest and greatest mobility technology. Like travel mobility scooters they are lightweight and compact, but they donít require any awkward disassembly for storage and transportation.
Instead, these portable mobility scooters fold down automatically into a manageable shape with just a click on the key fob. Buying a mobility scooter is a big investment, but itís a practical one too. Thatís why itís so important to make sure you find the right scooter for you. Like travel scooters, folding scooters tend to have smaller batteries. Of course, this does limit the travel range, but it also helps to keep the scooterís overall weight nice and light, which is why they are ideal for holidays. Some folding scooters even come with a durable suitcase, making them much more portable than larger models. And it means you wonít have to hire a mobility scooter when youíre away! A folding scooter might be better for someone who has difficulty assembling and disassembling small, fiddly parts. Since they fold into a single, compact design, folding scooters are very easy to store and then unfold quickly when youíre off out. Off-board charging is available, so you can store the scooter outside or in a garage while you charge the battery indoors. Folding scooters are categorised as class 2 scooters, to be driven on pavements and footpaths.
