Are you looking to purchase a mobility scooter? Are you struggling to choose from all of the options available? There are a few things that you should consider to assist you in choosing your perfect mobility scooter for your lifestyle. Whether you love to travel, spend a lot of time in local parks, or enjoy a game of golf on the weekends, the perfect scooter is waiting for you.

The first thing to consider is where you will be using the mobility scooter. If you have a steep driveway or live in an area that has a lot of hills, you will need to ensure that you purchase a larger scooter. This will ensure that the machine can go both up and down the slopes with ease. If you love to play golf, then the Golf mobility scooter would be perfect for you. The Golf has a weight capacity of 160kg and can travel up to 60km on a fully charged battery. You can even attach a golf bag to carry your golf clubs. Mobility scooters such as the Mantra are perfect if you are looking for something to get you down to the shops or around locations such as the botanic gardens.

If you have a holiday coming up and would like to make your trip a little bit easier to navigate, then you should invest in a plane safe scooter. Portable mobility scooters can be folded to allow them to fit into your car with ease. These scooters come with a material safety data sheet for the batteries which can be given to your chosen airline to allow you to bring the machine on board (this is at your airline's discretion, you will need to ensure that you gain approval before purchasing).

Just push the lever at the base of the machine with your foot and watch the machine fold and unfold on its own. This makes the process that little bit easier, and your travels less stressful.

You may want to personalise your mobility scooter, to make it unique. There are various accessories that can be added to different machines, remember to ask the product inquiries team what accessories are compatible with your scooter. Whether it be a bright orange flag to improve your safety and visibility, or a canopy to protect you from the sun in the summer months, you should definitely consider what add-ons will suit your needs. If you enjoy taking your Vita X down to the shops, then you may be interested in a rear bag to put your items in.
