Usage, surroundings and travel frequency will play a big part in your choice of scooter. In this quick guide, we will present three important things to consider when buying mobility scooters.
Buying a Mobility Scooter
Most people ask us; how comfortable are your mobility scooters? And what are the safety features? Which brand is the best? If you have any of these questions, it's your lucky day. Because we are going to answer your questions and even give you a list of recommended products.
In our previous post, we did an in-depth review of brands, how they are different, and what you get for your money. You can read that here or keep on reading to discover a summary.
In general, each brand that we work with at Scooters ‘N Chairs has a company goal to design and build mobility equipment that serves their elderly users for the long-term. Ultimately, these brands want to provide independence and help their users regain their mobility.
Afiscooter is a brand known for its reliability, and off-roading capability. Afiscooters are well-built for prolonged travel on gravel or grass.
We recommend the S-Series 4 wheel scooter if you are looking for a great scooter that is comfortable, customizable and durable.
Another great brand known for their durable scooters is Amigo. Their scooters are very sturdy! It is not for you if you travel a lot because their scooters will not disassemble; however, if you are looking for a durable scooter that looks good on the outside as much as it does on the inside, the Amigo RD model is ideal.
Drive Medical is one of our most popular brands. They make simple and easy to operate mobility equipment. The Trident Powerchair for example is a beautifully designed electric wheelchair with great comfort features like suspension and reclining seat options.
Some people often overlook the importance of customer service when buying mobility equipment. We understand how important it is and so does Golden Technologies. Their stock availability is second to none, meaning you will most likely never be disappointed when you purchase a Golden Scooter from us. One of our most popular models is the Alante Sport Powerchair. It is really popular because of how stable and cost-effective it is.
Looking for comfort over performance? Our brands have built scooters and power chairs with features to keep you comfortable regardless of terrain, or the length of your trips. Whether it is going grocery shopping or meeting a few friends for lunch, you need to be comfortable.
