Buying a mobility scooter is similar to buying a car: it works great on it’s own, but you may require some extras to help you get the most out of it. Below is a list of essentials to help you make the most of your mobility scooter by enhancing the way you travel and the way you store your scooter. When we think of accessories, we usually just think it’s an upsell or something gimmicky. But it’s good to remember that having all these accessories isn’t vital, you should just choose the ones that benefit you and enhance your mobility. So without further ado, here is our top 5 list of mobility scooter accessories to help you get the most from your mobility scooter:
1. Weather Cover
Investing in a weather cover is a smart choice if you have a larger scooter you keep in the shed. Weather covers do what they say on the tin and fit most mobility scooters (check first). They’re also great to pack with you on long journeys if you plan to leave your scooter outside a shop.
It’s good to stay hydrated, so if your mobility scooter doesn’t include a cup holder then this is a great investment. The purpose of this is to completely free up your hands so you can focus on your driving and stay safe.
Buy a cape for your mobility scooter, and thank yourself later. Mobility scooter capes are basically tailored anoraks that fit over both you and your scooter. This protects you from the rain and wind when you’re on the move.
One of the only downsides to having a compact scooter is the seat that can sometimes be less than adequate, leaving you wondering if you’d be better off with a larger scooter. With a seat cushion you can enjoy all the comfort that comes with a larger scooter.
