Cheap Mobility Scooters

Cheap doesn’t mean poor quality or basic functionality. Cheaper models are usually slightly smaller Class 2 mobility scooters. They still provide great functionality and features. The main difference between bigger and more expensive models is that they are equipped with smaller batteries and can handle less weight. Because they are less powerful you would not go as far as more expensive models. The longest range is usually about 10 miles. Having this in mind they are still great alternative to much more expensive Class 3 types.

Factory Outlet Mobility Scooters

In the old days when online sales were non existent factory outlet shops were popular among the buyers with discounted prices. It used to be cheaper to buy from outlet store than a “normal” high street store. Factory outlet stores are usually shops next to the factory, selling the products directly from the factory without spending money on middle man (distribution). They are usually same brand and limited to models available only from this factory. These days with online sales taking bigger and bigger part in shopping, factory outlet stores are no longer that attractive to buyers. Mobility scooters are more often imported from abroad so you wouldn’t be able to find “real” and proper factory outlet store in your area in the UK these days.

Scooters for Disabled

Mobility scooters are designed for people who have difficulty walking or getting around without assistance. Anyone with limited mobility who can drive an electric scooter offers a good level of independence that the person may otherwise not have.

Modern mobility scooters are ideal for the elderly or disabled who want to travel long distances and can easily get on and off the scooter. Many scooters come with tools and accessories such as shopping baskets and holders for walking sticks to make carrying these things more manageable.

Mobility scooters are not available through the NHS, but they are available online for purchase, and you can add any accessories you need to your order. Useful mobility scooter accessories include rain covers, waterproof storage covers, adjustable seats, shopping baskets and walking aid holders.

Mobility scooters come in two categories: Class two scooters that cannot be used on the road (except where there is no pavement), and Class three, which can be used on the road.

You do not need to register a class two mobility scooter, but you must register a class three scooter. You do not need a driving licence to drive a mobility scooter, but you do need to be over 14 years old to drive a class three scooter.

You don’t need to pay vehicle tax for a class three mobility scooter, but it makes sense to get yourself some insurance to protect yourself from theft and accidental damage.
