5 Advantages of Folding Mobility Scooters

Are you looking into buying a folding mobility scooter? If you are, then you should be aware of the benefits that a folding mobility scooter can bring to your life. This blog post will help you understand just how a mobility scooter can affect your life.

A folding mobility scooter can influence your social life, your personal space and your ability to travel. There are so many advantages, but we will be focusing on the ones we believe should be mentioned here.

Give it the boot

With a folding mobility scooter, you don’t have to shy away from long-distance travel. Some folding mobility scooters can be folded down to a compact size, which will then allow you to fit it comfortably into almost any car boot.

Now you can attend family holidays or travel long distances in the car because you can take your folding mobility scooter along with you.  


Unfortunately, when your mobility begins to deteriorate, you might start to feel socially isolated. You find yourself struggling to attend your traditional lunch with a friend, events are no longer attended and you feel like your only friends are the four walls you surround yourself with.

This is where a folding mobility scooter comes into play. No longer will you be restricted, as the mobility scooter allows you to attend cherished events once again. You can also tuck it away in a corner of a restaurant, friend’s house or other location you travel too as well. Regain your freedom.


Speaking of tucking it away, storage is the main benefit when it comes to having a folding mobility scooter. Traditional mobility scooters require you to have a large storage space to keep it, such as a garage, however, a folding mobility scooter can be tucked away also anywhere.

No longer will you have to apologise for it being in the way and you won’t have to build a specific space for it in your home.

Lightweight design

Did you know that folding mobility scooters tend to be lighter than traditional scooters? The benefit of this is that you are able to pick it up and store it in tight places easily. This is also beneficial for older users who might not be able to lift traditional scooters. You can even find ultra-lightweight folding mobility scooters to purchase.


Folding mobility scooters are said to be more suited to manoeuvring around tight corners including doorways, street corners and hallways. This means you can go to the shops without fear of becoming stuck on a tight corner or doorway.

What you should know  

If your mobility is deteriorating, it can be a scary time and it might feel as though you are losing your freedom. A folding mobility scooter not only saves space, but it can also give you your freedom back. You can explore with ease, meet up with friends and go about the day-to-day activities you would normally do.

If you are looking for a compact and convenient way to give you your mobility back, a folding mobility scooter might be the way to go.
