Mobility Scooters

When walking any distance becomes more difficult:
if you are reliant on others:

  • to get out and about,
  • to go shopping,
  • even to enjoy your garden;

If you would value more independence: then a scooter could be just the thing to make life easier. Mobility scooters come in all shapes and sizes and whatever it is you want a scooter to help you do, there’s every chance that there will be one to suit you. Our job is to help find the right scooter for you.

You can come to our showroom to talk, look and try one out. But if you’re keen to start thinking and looking before you call or pay us a visit, we’ve put together a list of questions and answers to them which will help you to decide class of scooter (Mini, Midi or Maxi) would best suit you.

And then for each class of scooter we’ve used our experience to select different models and makes which are well made, reliable and safe to use. This gives you something of a head start in finding the right scooter for you but of course there are many more to choose from, virtually all of which we are able to supply, and we will help you until you find just what you are looking for.

Finding the right scooter for you

There are many different makes and sizes of Mobility Scooter available and it can be difficult to know how to begin choosing one that will be right for you. So to help, we’ve put together a table of questions and answers to them.

Think about what you need a Scooter to do for you;

  • Look across at the answers for each of the three different classes of scooter.
  • Find the class of Scooter that comes closest to meeting your needs.


We’ve made these selections based on our experience of makes and models which from experience we know to be well made, reliable and safe to use and which our customers have enjoyed driving.
