I have had trouble walking for some time, and I recently decided to purchase a mobility scooter. There are 3 wheel mobility scooters and 4 wheel mobility scooters, so I did some research before I decided which type to buy. I ultimately chose the 3 wheel mobility scooter for several reasons.
The 3 wheel mobility scooter turns much easier than the 4 wheel scooter. This was important to me because I live in a small apartment and have a lot of stuff. I don’t have a lot of room to move about, so a scooter that easily gets in and out of tight spaces is really important. It is also helpful when I take my scooter to the doctor’s office, since exam rooms aren’t very accommodating of large 4 wheel scooters. With my scooter I can easily navigate any space. 4 wheel scooters don’t have that ability because they are wider in front.
I also really like the 3 wheel mobility scooters because they weigh less than larger 4 wheel mobility scooters. The 4 wheel models I saw all seemed a bit too cumbersome for me. My 3 wheel scooter is lightweight and it folds up for easy travel. I like how it is portable and I can take it anywhere. I can even get it in and out of the trunk myself. This is something I never would have been able to do with a heavy 4 wheel scooter.
Cost was a huge factor in my decision to purchase a 3 wheel scooter. Many of the best 3 wheel mobility scooters are still less expensive than 4 wheel models. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend, but I wanted to make sure I was getting something high quality. I was able to get the best value for my money with a 3 wheel scooter. I also had the option to purchase mobility scooter accessories to further customize my scooter. I liked this idea because I only spent money on extras that I wanted, rather than paying extra for a deluxe package with things I didn’t need. I decided on a large basket and a spare battery, both items which I find are useful and necessary.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase of a 3 wheel mobility scooter. Its maneuverability, light weight, and cost made it a much better option than a large 4 wheel mobility scooter. I am now comfortable knowing that whenever I have difficulty walking, my scooter is there to assist me.
