Mobility scooters can impact your life enormously, from providing you with the freedom and independence to go wherever you want at any time, to making it easier to visit friends and family, or take trips. There’s a huge range of mobility scooters to choose from to suit your lifestyle, from compact designs that are best-suited to travel to long range, road-legal vehicles which are ideal for urban settings and longer trips. At Keep Moving Care, we provide great value scooters which are high-quality, so you can enjoy your independence at a more affordable price.
When choosing a mobility scooter, should you choose new or used? There are benefits to both. With used mobility scooters, you benefit from free breakdown recovery in the West Sussex area, as well as a six months warranty which is extendable up to a year. All of our used scooters come with a user manual so you can get to grips with using your scooter as soon as possible, plus a battery charger and a free crutch bag.
What’s more, we offer nationwide delivery, free of charge, for all of our scooters and can even arrange a free home demonstration for you so you can be confident using the scooter from day one. With a new mobility scooter, you’ll receive all of the above, but the scooter will be new and will automatically come with a 12-month warranty. However, the main benefit of shopping for a used mobility scooter over a new one is the price – used scooters are considerably cheaper, while still being high quality, so you get a great scooter at a more affordable price.
There are differences between class 2 and class 3 scooters that you should know about when purchasing a mobility scooter. Class 2 scooters are sometimes referred to as 4mph scooters or boot scooters, and these are lightweight, portable and are ideally suited to shopping or carrying out errands. They have a top speed of 4mph so they’re faster than the average walking pace, making them a great option for days out with family and friends. However, class 2 mobility scooters can only be driven on pavements, with the exception of when you need to cross the road. There’s no need to tax a class 2 scooter and you don’t legally need insurance to ride on, although we advise insurance for all of our products as a precaution.
Class 3 scooters are sometimes referred to as road class scooters and these models are larger and more spacious than class 2 scooters. They can reach top speeds of 8mph, which can be adjusted for when you need to drive on pavements and in public areas, and they can also be driven on roads thanks to lights on the front and back of the scooter and wing mirrors on the sides of the vehicle. While you don’t need a license to drive a class 3 scooter, it’s a good idea to have a basic knowledge of the Highway Code for Mobility Scooter Users. As with class 2 scooters, there’s no need to pay vehicle tax, but you will need to register a class 3 scooter with the DVLA.
Even the most cautious of drivers can have accidents when out and about, so it’s a good idea to insure your mobility scooter. All of our scooters can be insured with mobility scooter insurance policies that will protect your vehicle and give you peace of mind.
