Going the Distance: The Best Mobility Scooters for Travel

Have you considered the phrase that is going viral: “Going the distance: the best mobility scooters for travel?”

The Doctor and InsuranceHaving a mobility scooter is quintessential for many people who need assistance in traveling from one place to another. However, not all mobility scooters are made equally, and it is important that before purchasing a mobility scooter, the customer considers how effective the model will be in travel. What makes a model an excellent travel companion or capable of “going the distance?” Obviously, the first determinant is the travel range, which determines the distance the mobility scooter can cover without having an additional charge. Nothing is more counterproductive than having to constantly worry about the mobility scooter dying on you when in transit — who has time for that during the busy work week? Other determents to consider are the comfortability of the model and the speed at which it travels. Those two characteristics go hand-in-hand, as a fast model with horrible comfortability is a nightmare, especially when traveling on less than ideal sidewalks; and an extremely comfortable model, while enjoyable but moves at a glacial pace opens the driver to weather related ailments, such as heat stroke.
