How to Compare and Decide Which Electric Mobility Scooter is Right for You

Selecting the right Electric Mobility Scooter is an important decision. You want to make sure you get the greatest value for your money, it should be long lasting and you should be able to depend on it. There are many things to consider when comparing high-end, heavy duty and the best quality electric mobility scooters.

What are your mobility needs for using your scooter? Where will you be taking it and how far? Consider the driving range per charge and ground clearance. Take the weight capacity of the electric mobility scooter in consideration. Higher end and heavy duty electric mobility scooters can support anywhere between 330-500 pounds. Make sure to take into consideration if you need a 3 or 4 wheel scooter. 3 wheels will have a tighter turning radius, are very good indoors or for use on smooth surfaces. 4 wheels provide a wider and sturdier wheelbase and are good for outside and rougher terrain. The style is important too. Electric mobility scooter manufacturers have taken style into consideration and have some really attractive scooters available. There are even many colors to choose from. Some offer silver, black, red, iridescent purple, orange and even apple green! Other options to consider are ease of use, speed, type of battery, wheel size and storage capabilities.

Quality is very important. Your mobility scooter must be a dependable piece of equipment or it is not doing its job. Being dependent on something working correctly is important, especially when it comes to your ability to be mobile. Researching companies and their quality of products are key. What is their warranty and how is their customer service? Are they easily accessible and how fast can they get you moving again if something needs repairs? Make sure to purchase a scooter made by a reputable manufacturer.
