A mobility scooter is a great tool that helps one suffering limited mobility with traveling issues. It opens doors and allows the world to become a larger place again, but these scooters do not come cheap. Buying a used mobility scooter can be the solution to getting the mobility you need at a price you can afford.

First, you should check with your insurance company. Many insurance companies will pay for a mobility scooter or will at least cover part of the costs. This is the best way to go if you are looking at getting a mobility scooter. If your insurance company does not cover a mobility scooter, then looking for a used mobility scooter can help you save a lot of money. You do not have to worry about purchasing a used scooter either. They are built to last a long time and while they are customizable, it is not in direct relation to the person's size, age or condition. Therefore, there are only a few things to check out before making a purchase.

The first thing to consider when buying a used mobility scooter is the battery. Ask the owner to charge the battery so you can try it. While buying a used scooter does not mean that you have to keep the battery it has, it is a good idea to know that you have a battery there for when you first get it. Next, you will want to check the tires. Once again, you can replace these, but you will want to be sure that you will be able to go when you first get them. It should also be noted that small tires that are smooth are best for use inside and on paved sidewalks. Larger, more textured tires are good for use on rough surfaces and uneven ground. Finally, you will want to have a sit in the seat. It should be comfortable to you and meet your current needs. Yes you can upgrade and buy a seat the meets your needs right away, but right now you will want to know if it is comfortable. It is also important to consider the material of the seat. Vinyl seats are easier to clean then cloth varieties, but they can get sticky and hot in the heat of the outdoors. They can also become uncomfortable if you will be there a long time.

Most of the features on the used mobility scooter can be upgraded or replaced. This will make the scooter customizable to your own needs. You can get a new battery, new charger, new tires and even upgraded ones to meet your needs, a new seat, and so much more. This makes it easier to look at the scooter. If something is torn, worn, or not as you desire it to be you can change it with the help of the manufacturer.

Generally, it is a good idea to talk with the owner if possible. You should ask how the scooter was used and any problems that the owner has had with it. This is an important decision and knowing as much as you can, can make it easier to make a wise and informed decision. You should also remember that the used mobility scooter is easily upgraded and parts are easily replaced!
