Mobility scooters are very large and cumbersome machines, especially when trying to transport them, aren’t they? Well, actually, they don’t need to be!
Picture the scene; you are going out for a family trip to a new city (maybe for a weekend break). You need to get your mobility scooter there as well, so you need to have a vehicle large enough to store it, as well as your family and your luggage. It’s a bit tricky, right?
That’s where portable mobility scooters come into play.
What Is A Portable Scooter?
A portable mobility scooter is a special type of mobility scooter that can be easily folded away or disassembled in order to make it easier to move around and transport. They are typically very lightweight mobility scooters, developed by the highest level scooter manufacturers.
If you are travelling a lot, or need a mobility scooter that is easy to store away in a compact area, then portable scooters could be exactly what you need! But the question is, which one should you choose?
To help with that, here is a list of the portable mobility scooters that we would recommend!
