When you find that you or you loved one is in need of a mobility scooter, consider the market of used mobility scooters. The leading manufactures like Pride Mobility Scoters are constructing the mobility scooters to provide years of service.
This has led to families being left with a very good scooter. It is also a good thing if you will only be needing the mobility scooter for a short time, perhaps you have had some type of surgery or was unfortunately in a accident.
There are a few things to consider before your purchase. If the scooter has been out of use for a long period of time, it may be necessary to purchase a new battery. Most manufactures like the Lark Mobility Scooter will have a service center within driving distance. If the scooter has not been service in over a year it may be best to have it serviced. If the seat is not one that you can use, it can always be replaced. When checking the tires, don’t be alarmed if the tires are flat or even flat spotted. If the tires are pneumatic, they may just need air. If they are flat spotted, they could be foam and after around ten minutes of use they should be back in round.
If there is an accessory they you require that is not with your scooter, you can always order it. Amigo Mobilty Scooters for example has all types of medical and non medical accessories to upgrade the scooter. Almost all the leading manufactures will have a large variety of upgrades of almost anything you can think of. It will not take long to make this scooter really yours. If you want a cup holder or a canopy, it is available for you. Mobility scooter parts are available for all major brands.
Another thing to consider is the 3 wheel or the 4 wheel. As a general rule of thumb, the 3 wheel mobilitycooter has a smaller turning radius and will work great inside or on smoother surfaces like paved roads and shopping centers. The 4 wheel is sturdier and will handle the outside terrain better and is a bit more stable because of the fourth wheel. Either way, you may be able to get a very good deal and have a piece of equipment that was designed to make your life easier to stay mobile and active.
