At Lightweight Scooters, we stock a whole range of lightweight mobility scooters to suit the different needs and requirements of our customers. Some of our mobility scooters have large rugged wheels that are better suited for uneven terrain, some have more powerful motors that are designed to help with inclines and some are sleeker with small turning circles to give the best performance indoors.
Whether you live in a busy town, the peaceful countryside, or by the sea you will be able to find the ideal lightweight mobility scooter for you.
When choosing a mobility scooter, it's important to decide whether you want a Lithium Ion or Lead Acid (SLA) battery.
Lithium Ion has undergone rigorous testing and is considered safe for travel by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
SLA batteries are heavier in weight, but are the cheaper alternative. This option is still suitable for shorter journeys like visiting the doctor or going shopping.
An excellent tip is to buy a spare battery for your lightweight mobility scooter. This will allow you to extend your range without re-charging your battery.
Whatever your reason for buying a lightweight mobility scooter, always remember that certain types will suit you more than others (this depends on many factors, including the users body weight and size). That's why it is very important to seek out a reputable showroom or arrange a home visit, where a friendly professional can guide you every step of the way.
