Buying and hiring mobility scooters
If you think a mobility scooter might improve your or a loved one's quality of life, there are several ways to find your chosen Best Buy.
The manufacturer's website is a good place to start, although you may be able to find cheaper prices elsewhere. Even if you do want to order your scooter from an online retailer, it's always a good idea to try the scooter in the flesh by visiting a showroom or shop before parting with your cash.
If you're on a budget, don't be put off by mobility scooter prices - there are some real bargains to be had on the second-hand market. And if you only want a scooter for a limited time period, such as for a holiday or while you're suffering a short-term health complaint, consider hiring an electric scooter just for the time you need it.
