Authors comments
The user frequently travels and is very satisfied with the Shoprider. He uses it a lot, even when he is indoors at home. It is very durable and reliable; in the four years he has had it has never broken down. He only had to change the batteries once.
A small drawback is that the seat is small and hard, and even in the highest position it is too low for users who are tall. He compensates with a cushion. Good trunk balance is necessary.
The user recommends marking the parts with ‘fragile’ labels for air travel.

Check eBay, sometimes a used scooter is for sale there.

  1. For all those suffering from a walking disability, innovations such as mobility scooters can be a great boon in helping them move around and becoming self-reliant. Small, easy to operate, battery powered and many can carry upto 300 pounds. Highly recommended for all those who are highly overweight
