Be it moving around in the house or in the neighborhood, a Pride mobility scooter is always to the rescue. However, when one goes to buy a Pride mobility scooter, there are certain things to be kept in mind. To find the ideal scooter, you should consider the following points.
Portability and weight
The good news is that some models are very easy to carry from the store to your home, and the pieces are very easy to assemble. This means that you can carry your reliable scooter wherever you choose to go. Personally visiting the retail store is recommended so that you can compare the choices available.
Indoor versus outdoor use
While some scooters are solely meant to be used either outdoors or indoors, there are some models that can be used for both. Two factors that help in determining this are the size of the wheels and the battery viability. A battery life of 50 miles per full charge is great to use your Pride mobility scooter outdoors and if the wheels are thin in diameter, avoid using it anywhere else but in your home.
Know the scooter specifications
The weight of the scooter, the time required to charge it completely, the feasibility in transporting it around, the price of the spare parts, and the running time when fully charged are some of the things that you should consider when buying a Pride mobility scooter.
Compare the different models
Whether you are planning to use the scooter indoors or outdoors helps in making a choice from the available options. There are some models that have a basket at the front and the seats can be adjusted to suit the height of the rider. Also, lightweight design, suspension, etc are some other comparable features.
The number of wheels on the scooter
You will have to choose from a 3-wheel or a 4-wheel Pride mobility scooter. The biggest difference is the radius of the wheel which can be up to 10-inches bigger. This is a big deal based on where you intend to use the scooter, indoors or outdoors.
