Fortunately modern mobility scooters are very reliable but it is a good idea to have an annual service, just to keep it in tip-top condition. Here are a few other tips to keep your scooter running smoothly:
Try to keep your mobility scooter clean and tidy, and if possible avoid getting it wet. Of course, there will be times when you will probably get caught out in the rain so protect your scooter (and yourself!) with rain covers – you will find a wide range of these in our stores. A cover for the control panel is an inexpensive item, but offers valuable protection.
Get into the routine of charging your batteries when you return from a journey. Not only will this help with the long term life of your batteries, it will also reduce the chances of you running out of power and being stranded on your journey. Some of the transportable scooters available have the option to purchase a spare battery pack. These can be purchased at point of sale, or we can easily supply the correct battery pack at a later date.
Do not overload your mobility scooter with heavy items. Things like tinned food, bottled beverages and potatoes etc... Can be heavy – if you carry too much and overload your scooter it could affect its stability and the overall performance of your batteries we would recommend scooter bags or baskets to avoid this which are available at our stores.
