The purpose of a mobility scooter is to help you move around with ease and without pain. Whether you need a lot of mobility support, or simply want to move a bit quicker, a scooter is there to help. 

Improved movement will immediately benefit your daily life. Your independence will increase dramatically, as you'll not need to rely on others as much. You'll also have more freedom to move where you want, for as long as you want.

-    Car boot scooters
-    4/6mph scooters
-    8mph scooters
-    All-Terrain scooters

How easily you get around and how far you can go varies across the different types of mobility scooters for hire. Read on to discover where the most common mobility scooter models can take you. 

Where to Use Your Scooter

Car Boot Mobility Scooters

A car boot mobility scooter does exactly what it says on the tin. These scooters can either be collapsed down into one unit or dismantled into smaller parts. This makes them easy to store and transport via your car boot. 
A key benefit of a car boot scooter is its portability. This nifty scooter is designed to work around you and fit into the smallest of spaces. Pop it in the car, on public transport or even on the aeroplane. 

This scooter is just as effective for use around the home. Its compact frame and neat design allow it to easily manoeuvre tight, narrow spaces. 

The slimline design of a car boot scooter is ideal if you're tight on space. Store it in a cupboard or even down your hallway. 

A car boot scooter has smaller, lighter batteries compared to other mobility scooters. This design feature ensures car boot scooters stay compact and easy to transport. 

Smaller batteries do mean a shorter range. The short range of a car boot scooter reflects its intended use. Use your car boot scooter around the home or for short journeys, such as running local errands.

4/6mph Mobility Scooters 

You can't beat a class 2 mobility scooter for all-around excellence. These scooters are highly efficient, extremely reliable and very user friendly. 

4/6mph mobility scooters feature suspension, which absorbs bumps and jolts. Suspension ensures a smooth driving experience across varying terrains. 

Suspension is ideal if you have to drive across gravel, grass and uneven ground to get to where you need to be. 4/6mph mobility scooters are also better equipped to transition on and off pavements, as well as driving uphill. 

For an active user, the benefit of a 4/6mph scooter will be its larger, more powerful batteries. Bigger batteries give your scooter a longer range and allow you to travel further for longer. If you have a busy social calendar, or work everyday, this scooter is great for getting you from A to B.
