Time to get moving?

Published on 07 January 2020 12:02 PM

If all you wanted for Christmas was to be a bit more mobile, why not visit our Advantage at TLC showroom and see what help is available? You’ll find a great range of mobility and living aids and they could make a real difference to your quality of life.

If you’re in the market for a new scooter then an internet bargain might seem like the thing for you BUT there are some key points to consider before you buy:

  1. What do you want to use it for? Just indoors or in your garden, going shopping locally or further afield? Consider the full range of activities you’ll use your scooter for and make sure it’s suitable
  2. Will your health conditions affect your choice? Think about frailty, flexibility, eyesight, back problems, and anything else that might impact on how you use your scooter
  3. The physical environment around you – stairs, uneven paths, gravel, different flooring surfaces etc
  4. Aftercare and servicing – what kind of warranty comes with your scooter, can it be serviced locally, is it easy to access help online or by telephone in case you need any extra help?

It’s also important to have a test drive – can you handle the scooter, do you feel comfortable in it, can you park it? There are so many important considerations to think about when spending money on your wellbeing so please make sure you’re getting the best advice. Don’t part with your hard-earned cash before consulting with the experts so why not visit our showroom for some free help and advice (without obligation) and make a really informed choice?
