Choosing a scooter that is perfect for you is an important decision to make, there are a wide range of scooters available on the market with various different capabilities so choosing the one that compliments you the best isn’t always easy. Here are a few things for you to consider when looking for a scooter:
What Will You Use it for?
The scooter you will need will depend on what you plan to use it for. If you plan to use it on a daily basis covering long distances across different terrains you need a sturdy, hard wearing scooter which will cope with the use. If your scooter will be used for you to occasionally pop to the shops or maybe you would like one you can fit in your car and use when you need it you may want to look for a more light weight scooter that you can easily pack away and manoeuvre.
The size of your scooter will also relate to what you will be using your scooter for and how often. The smaller the scooter the more portable it will be offering easy manoeuvrability. However the smaller models will often come with small wheels that won’t have the ability to go up and down kerbs or over rough ground. If this could be a problem for you then a larger model may be more appropriate.
You need to be confident in your choice of scooter and be reassured that you will be able to easily operate it as well as getting in and out of it with ease – which if you suffer from mobility problems, could be a worry for you. Be sure the model you choose has a swivel seat making it easier for you to use, armrests will also come in handy as well as providing that extra layer of comfort.
