Battery Life

When you're on the move, the last thing you need is to worry about your scooter's battery running out. For those who lead active lives, a long-lasting battery is a non-negotiable feature. New developments in battery technology mean you can expect more from your scooter's power source than ever before, and our team at Countrywide Mobility are experts in guiding you through the options.

For example, our range includes scooters with lithium-ion batteries that offer extended range per charge, faster charging times, and a longer overall lifespan compared to traditional lead-acid batteries. With a battery that's ready to go when you are, you can confidently plan out those longer journeys or simply enjoy more freedom between charges.

Comfort and Customisation

No two people are the same, and neither are their mobility needs. That's why the comfort level of your scooter is paramount. Seating that is properly cushioned and adjustable can make a big difference to your journey. Additionally, features like swivel seats, a reclining backrest, or adjustable armrests can significantly enhance your overall experience.

Customisation options extend beyond comfort to personal style. Here at Countrywide Mobility, we offer a variety of scooter colours and designs to suit your preferences.

Portability vs. Durability

Are you looking for a scooter that can be easily transported in a car, or one that can handle rough terrains with ease? The answer to this question will lead you to the right balance between portability and durability. Our range includes portable scooters designed to be quickly disassembled for travel, or more robust models with larger wheels and suspension systems that tackle uneven ground effortlessly.

We can help you consider factors such as weight, ease of disassembly, and the scooter's size when collapsed for transport. If you're an urban explorer, you may favour a model with a smaller turning radius. If outdoor adventures are your thing, then a more robust, off-road suitable scooter might be the ideal choice.

Safety Features

You should feel as safe on your mobility scooter as you do in your home. Modern scooters offer a wide range of safety features, from lighting and indicators for visibility in low-light conditions, to anti-tip mechanisms that provide additional stability.

Additionally, look for scooters with adjustable speed settings and comfortable handlebars that are ergonomically designed for easy grip. A sturdy, well-built frame is also an essential element that ensures your safety, and our team will ensure you know how to operate your scooter's features before you take it home.

Ease of Use and Maintenance

A mobility scooter should simplify your life, not complicate it. We know that ease of use is critical, particularly for those new to scooters or with limited mobility. Controls should be intuitive and accessible, and the overall operation of the device as straightforward as possible.

To keep your scooter running smoothly, it's important to consider the maintenance aspect. Look for models with easily accessible parts and a serviceable design. At Countrywide Mobility, we offer a servicing and maintenance service, so you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your scooter will have a long and reliable life.
