There are more than a few things to consider when you’re buying a mobility scooter. You’ll need to think about what kind of power you want, whether you want a road scooter or a pavement scooter, and so on. You probably have a lot on your mind, but don’t forget to consider the advantages of buying a mobility scooter with a basket attached. Sure, a basket can always be added later, but here are just a few reasons why it might be best to have one there from the second you get started.
A Place for the Essentials
There are a few things you’ll probably want to take with you whenever you go out, such as keys, wallet or purse, and your phone. It’s nice to know you always have somewhere to pop those essentials when you’re out in your mobility scooter, but there are other things you might want to bring along. Think a plastic tiller cover to protect the electronics and a jacket for yourself in case it rains. Those are things you should really have with your scooter at all times, and the basket is just where you should keep them.
Ensures Perfect Stability
Sure, you can add baskets to mobility scooters at any time, but it’s usually best to have one fitted as standard. It all comes down to stability. When you fill the basket, it’s going to affect the way the scooter controls. If the basket is fitted even a little bit to the left or right of centre, stability is going to suffer.
Added Convenience and Style
Finally, having a basket fitted as standard is simply more convenient. Nobody need to bolt anything on after you’re used to your mobility scooter the way it is, and the basket will look like part of the overall design instead of something that was simply stuck on later.
