Have The Need For Speed?

For the new mobility scooter owner, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory can be applied with respect to their evolution. In the beginning, the customer is just looking to satisfy their need for travel. Details aren’t important—just get me in and out as soon as possible. Once these needs are met with a reliable mobility scooter, the owner then begins to accept their improved lifestyle and seek to further their contentment. This often occurs after three to nine months of ownership.

They are up-to-date on the latest advances and news from the mobility scooter forefront. The person will see themselves having to charge their model less, zipping away in a sporty color, or purchasing a second model that is useful in travel. Commonly, the stay-at-home dad or the busy professional often is busy with various tasks and seek to improve their productivity by having a faster model of mobility scooter when they need to travel.
