A small, light, convenient and quiet scooter, which can easily be disassembled into manageable parts to fit in the car and on flights. The length and seat height are adjustable. The scooter is not as strong as a large outdoor scooter, see related tip, but it can handle low thresholds.
Model: Shoprider Laber
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.
