How Pavement Scooters can Change your Day to Day Life


Owning a pavement scooter can be a liberating experience for someone with mobility difficulties. When everyday tasks such as shopping, visiting friends, walking the dog and getting fresh air are no longer as easy as they used to be, there is a great temptation to simply ‘make do’. So many people, after experiencing injury, or as a result of disability and old age, find their worlds shrinking due to lack of mobility.

Restore your Independence with a Pavement Scooter

If you are facing a loss of mobility or struggle getting out of the house, a pavement scooter can restore your independence. Pavement scooters are lightweight, safe and energy efficient. They are simple to drive and provide a smooth and comfortable means of transport, even over bumpy services. Furthermore, they are an affordable investment, with credit widely available to spread the cost of purchase.

Advantages of Owning a Pavement Scooter

There are many reasons to consider buying a pavement scooter. These include:

  • Suitable for use on all pavement surfaces.
  • Light and compact vehicles; easy to store and transport in the back of a car or on buses.
  • Storage space to comfortably accommodate most shopping trips, along with belongings such as handbag, walking stick etc.
  • Get from A to B without relying on other people.
  • Save money compared with taxi fares.

Pavement Scooters Versus Other Mobility Scooters

Pavement scooters aren’t the only option for people with mobility issues. Some people prefer to use heavier duty, road legal mobility scooters. It is always good to explore your options, although pavement scooters offer advantages over other models in the following ways:

  • Cheaper to purchase, maintain and operate.
  • Require less storage space.
  • No driving licence required.
  • No traffic risk – important for people with limited eyesight or slower reactions.
