These days there are so many lightweight mobility scooters in the UK that making an informed decision involves a lot of research based on your own personal requirements. Just because a mobility scooter falls into the category of “lightest mobility scooter in the UK” it doesn’t mean it will be easy to lift for everyone; however, many lightweight scooters can be pulled along just like a suitcase or carried.
Lightweight scooters take up much less space than the larger ‘road class’ variety, and the great thing is that they can be used in conjunction with other modes of transport such as cars, planes, cruise ships and trains – making travel much easier.
