  • Types of scooter

    Mobility Maintenance Peterborough wants to ensure that when looking to buy a mobility scooter or power wheelchair, you pick the one that's right for you. There are many options to choose from (for details of quality second hand scooters we have available please look at our FACEBOOK page in the SHOP section or contact us to check what scooters we have available.)"

    Folding Scooters.

    Folding mobility scooters are designed for everyday use, helping you around the house or giving you the freedom go shopping. Their small frames make them easy to manoeuvre and fit into narrow spaces without compromising on stability. These scooters can be quickly folded, and easily lifted into a car boot or stored away. This flexibility also means they can be transported on trains and aeroplanes, making them great travel mobility scooters. Categorised as Class 2 scooters, they can only be driven on pavements and footpaths (unless crossing a road or there is no footpath) and have a maximum speed of 4mph. Class 2 scooters don't have to be registered with the DVLA. Folding mobility scooters contain smaller batteries, typically lithium, making them more suitable for travelling shorter distances. Depending on usage and model, a full battery can power a scooter for 8 - 12 miles.

    Boot Scooters.

    Boot scooters are compact and easy to dismantle which makes them ideal for the boot of your car. They give the flexibility and independence to go anywhere and typically will fit in most car boots.

    Mid Size Scooters.

    Mid size mobility scooters are perfect for people who want to go to their local shops and collect some shopping. Their bigger wheels, longer range and padded seats enable them to handle bumps and other terrain much better than boot scooters. Some of the mid size scooters can be dismantled for transportation.

    Large Scooters.

    Large mobility scooters, also called class 3, are much more substantial in terms of size, weight and capability. These scooters have a top speed of up to 8mph and can cover up to 35 miles. They are road legal and so can be used on a public road if you desire. For people replacing their car, or considering a scooter as their main mode of transport, these are an ideal solution.

    Powerchairs (often called electric wheelchairs).

    Powerchairs (electric wheelchairs) are ideal for those with less mobility and in need of a more permanent solution. They are built with comfort in mind, for all day use and come in a variety of sizes for indoor and outdoor use. Depending on the model, they can offer such accessories as electric seat raisers, reline, tilt and foot raisers are all avaiable and further improve the usability of the chair.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • How can I get the best from my battery?
      There are different views about how and when you should charge your scooter. Some manafacturers believe that you should charge your scooter straight after use whereas others believe that you should charge your scooter when the battery is getting towards empty. We recommend you check your scooter manual for advice about how to make the most of your scooter battery.

    • How can I maintain the life of my battery if I plan not to use my mobility scooter for a while?
      When storing your scooter for long periods, to keep your battery in good condition you should always fully charge the batteries before disconnecting them from the scooter and allowing them to drain naturally.

    • I haven't used my scooter for a while and now when I go to turn it on it doesn't start, what should I do?
      There are a few possible causes for this.
      -If you haven't used your scooter for a while and haven't charged the batteries in that time, the batteries may need to be replaced. Once a battery charge drops below a certain level, they won’t take charge (but your charger will probably indicate that the batteries are charged)
      -Make sure that your charger cable isn’t connected (as the scooter has an in-built safety measure that wont allow the scooter to move if it senses the charger cable is connected)
      -Each scooter has a circuit breaker and this may have tripped. If it has, in most cases you just need to press this and this should clear the fault (but if it happens again I would recommend you get your scooter looked at to identify the cause)
      -A fuse may have blown or one of the many plugs in the electrical circuit may have come loose (this isn’t really a DIY job to investigate)
      -The ignition/key switch may have broken.
      -One of the most common reasons is the speed pot (the knob you turn to increase/decrease the speed) or the throttle pot (the level you push/pull to move) fail over time.

      We are always at hand to help so if you have a problem, please phone us on 07947 436394 so we can advise you further.

    • My scooter batteries seem low on power but the charger is showing the “fully charged light”.
      The batteries may be so low on charge that the charger doesn’t recognise the batteries. It's also possible that the charging port itself may have failed. I’m seeing more and more of these failures, where the charger lead plug moves around in the socket. I can run some simple electrical checks to identify the cause and then advise of the likely cost.

    • My scooter wont move and its bleeping and/or a light is flashing?
      Most scooters have an in-built diagnostic check and if it senses a problem, it won’t allow the scooter to move. Each scooter has a guide to indicate, based on the number of flashes or bleeps, the cause of the problem.
      Please refer to the manual for your scooter or give me a call and I will help you understand the cause of the fault (as some of these can be simple fixes over the phone) or arrange a repair.

    • I have left my mobility scooter switched on a while and now it has stopped working, why has this happened?
      Your scooter may have a sleep or power saving mode to preserve battery life. Try turning the key off and then on again and this may fix the problem.

    • My mobility scooter lights aren't working
      A bulb may have come loose during use and simply needs securing, or it may require replacing if old or broken. If the bulb is new and securely in place then it may be a loose connection that needs fixing.

      These are a few simply checks we recommend before calling for help with repairs, but if you require our help, please phone us on 07947 436394 so we can advise you further.

    • Is it normal for my mobility scooter to have a slight delay when switching it on?
      As a safety feature, most mobility scooters have a slight delay between turning it on and being able to pull away when you activate the lever. This feature ensures your safety if, for example, you accidentally nudge the lever when getting on or off the scooter.
      If your scooter fails to move after more than just a short delay then it may be that the battery requires changing or there is a more complex fault. If, once charged, your scooter is still not working then it may be that is needs further investigation to find the cause of the problem. If you require our help, please phone us on 07947 436394 so we can advise you further.

    • The seat on my mobility scooter won't come off/fit properly. How can I fix this?
      Some mobility scooters require that the seat be facing to the side or backwards before you can remove or install it. Check your manual for more information.

    • What procedures should I follow to ensure my scooter is in proper running order?
      Like a car, your mobility scooter needs and annual service and regular maintenance. The annual service will check the correct and safe operation of your scooter. Your mobility scooter manual will outline the recommended basic scooter maintenance for your model of scooter. If you would like us to check or service your scooter please contact us on 07947 436394 or send an email to arrange an appointment.

      Please note that a routine annual service is not the same as a fault finding diagnostic service

    • The tiller on my mobility scooter is loose and won't stay in place. How can I tighten it?
      Each mobility scooter is different, but you will usually find the tiller release level on the bottom of the tiller. For more information check your manual which should advise how to tighten your tiller. If it won't tighten it may be that the part is worn, but I may still be able to fix it for you.

    • I have checked everything and it has good batteries but my scooter won't move.
      Each mobility scooter will have a lever or knob that allows the scooter to be pushed when required. If it isn't in the drive position your scooter will not work. Put your scooter into the drive position, turn the ignition off then on again and you should find it will work.

    • Can I get another key for my mobility scooter?
      Yes, you can buy a new key for only a few pounds. Please contact me for more information.

    • Can I replace my pneumatic tyres with solid puncture proof ones?
      Yes, in most cases, I can source and fit solid puncture proof tyres to your existing wheels. Alternatively I can inject a puncture proofing sealant into your existing tyres and tubes, giving the reassurance of puncture proof tyres, with the more comfortable ride provided by pneumatic tyres. Please contact me for more information.

    • Do you need to take a test to drive a mobility scooter?
      You don’t need to take a test before using a mobility scooter. If you’ve never driven one before, I would always talk a customer through how the scooter works and the key safety points. I always encourage a test before buying a scooter as there so make makes, models and sizes to choose from and you need to be comfortable that the scooter is right for you.

    • Are mobility scooters allowed on the road?
      Only mobility scooters with full lights and indicators are allowed on the road, where the maximum recommended speed is 6-8mph.

    • Can I use my 6/8 MPH scooter on footpaths?
      Yes you can, but you must have it in the low (4MPH) mode. It is illegal to use drive more than 4 MPH on footpaths and you need to be aware of your surroundings and pedestrians have the right of way.

    • How much does it cost to run a mobility scooter?
      Mobility scooters are cheap to run, and charging the scooter at your cheapest tarrif could typically cost 20 pence. Then there are just the annual service and any repair costs.

      Specialist insurance is not (currently a legal requirement but you may want to looking into getting public liability cover for peace of mind for any mishaps
