Things to Keep in Mind When You Look at Affordable Mobility Scooters
While affordable mobility scooters may be the perfect option for some, they may not be for all. As you can see from the images above, many of these scooters are small in stature. So, while they are great indoor and sidewalk drivers, you might not be able to take them on grass, over bumps or uneven terrain. If you want a scooter that can handle a little more, you should take a look at mid-sized mobility scooters. Another thing to keep in mind is that most affordable mobility scooters have relatively low weight capacities, which of course will not fit everyone’s needs.
Other Financial Options You May Have
If you have needs and wants that are not met by any of the scooters mentioned on this list, then you may be better off going for a scooter that is a little more expensive. If you find a scooter that is outside of your budget, we do offer financing through PayBright. This allows you to have smaller monthly payments, which may help you get the scooter that you have your eye on.
On the other hand, you can work with your own insurance company like Canada Lift, Green Shield, or Manulife for coverage. Keep in mind that not everyone will qualify, but we are more than happy to send a quote. Learn more about insurance coverage here.
