What Exactly is a Boot Scooter?
Mobility Boot scooters can have three or four wheels and have a top speed of 4 MPH, they are fundamentally the same as other electric powered scooters except that they are easily transportable and lightweight. A Boot Scooter in simple terms is a Scooter that is designed to fit in your car boot, hence the name Boot Scooter.
Boot Scooters vary in size and capacity, there are a lot of different models to choose from and you should think carefully about which Boot Scooter is best for needs before you buy, for example small Boot Scooters usually have small batteries which means that the distance you can drive on these Boot Scooter is limited compared to a Road Scooter which has a bigger battery. The main reason for this is that Boot Scooters are designed for convenience and flexibility, so they have to be easy to disassemble so that they can fit into the boot of your car.
Boot Scooters are lightweight, easy to drive and have a driving distance range of up to 15-20 miles between charges, you will usually be able to spot a boot scooter being driven in a shopping shopping or on the pavement.
Who uses Boot Scooters?
Boot Scooters dramatically improve the quality of peoples lives who have any kind of difficulty with movement such as the elderly or disabled people and are a simple but effective way to make getting around easier.
A Boot Scooter is ideal for someone who only wants to travel short distances locally and does not need to drive long distances, you can drive on the pavement using a Boot Scooter but not on the roads, to drive on the roads you will need a Road Scooter. Boot Scooters are ideal for people with mobility problems such as the elderly and people with disabilities. People who buy Boot Scooters usually have some degree of mobility but are prone to getting tired easily and or are unable to walk as far as they used to.
Buying the Right Boot Scooter for your needs
There is a lot to consider when buying a Boot Scooter and you should take your time at this point to make sure that you make the right choice, for example three wheeled mobility scooters have less of a turning circle and are subsequently more manoeuvrable than four wheeled Boot Scooters, whereas four wheeled mobility scooters offer more stability - so you need to make a mobility Boot Scooter list of needs asking questions such as:
- What is my mobility scooter budget (how much do you want to spend)
- What is the main reason I am buying a Boot Scooter (what do I need it to do)
- How often will I be transporting my Boot Scooter (which is the easiest to dismantle and assemble
- Is maintenance an issue (should I take out any insurance)
- Always check the weight limit of the mobility scooter, does it have the capacity to carry you?

How do Boot Scooters
Scooters work in the same way as Pavement and Road Scooters, there is
a small lever towards the handlebar, if you imagine how a bicycle
brake works this is very similar and it's purpose is to control the
Boot Scooters forward and reverse movement. Releasing the
lever activates the scooters automatic braking system which is very
effective and would stop the Boot Scooter rolling down even the
steepest of hills.
Boot Scooters are very
easy to drive and steering a boot scooter is similar to driving a
bike as all you have to do is turn the steering wheel which is very
lightweight on a Boot Scooter to turn in the right direction. The
Tiller of a Boot scooter which is positioned on the handlebars
incorporates all the instruments that you will need to see such as
the battery gauge, the horn, the speed dial, and the light controls
depending on the model you buy. The Boot Scooters tiller is also
easy to adjust for comfort and you can also adjust the seat
for height and reach and a more comfortable driving position.
