Mobility Scooters

Used mobility scooters

Naturally, electric mobility scooters are a comparably expensive piece of equipment compared to conventional wheelchairs. To reduce the cost of buying a scooter, you may consider buying one used, either second-hand or ex-demo.

Generally speaking, there is no harm in taking this route so long as you take the necessary measures to ensure the scooter is fully working and fit for purpose. Make sure you carry out a thorough inspection of any used scooter prior to buying. This includes general wear-and-tear, as well as the condition of the battery and wheels. See our Maintance guide for more information on this.

We would recommend only buying a used scooter from a reputable supplier rather than an individual so you can be confident of your purchase, and that if anything does go wrong you can get in touch with them. Ideally you will be offered a warranty of 6-12 months.

Before you start looking at used mobility scooters, be sure to read our comprehensive Mobility Scooter Buyer’s Guide as many of the points raised still apply.
