Mobility scooters to suit every personality
By: Amy Holland, On: 29 May 2018
One of the wonders of being human is that every person is individual, with different traits, tastes, and needs. Mobility scooter retailers like Monarch have embraced this variety and stock many types of scooter to suit different needs.
Whether you’re looking for something small to pop in the car boot, or something sturdy for long countryside adventures, we’ve compiled a list of scooters to suit many personalities.
For the tech-savvy scooter user
The Smarti is a small class 2 automatic-folding Mobility Scooter. The Smarti can be folded and un-folded at the touch of a button using a remote-control key fob. This makes it an ideal solution if you struggle dismantling scooters. And let’s not lie – it looks pretty impressive too!
With its automatic open and close function and a range of up to 9* miles, the Smarti can help you to stay independent, even if your mobility is more limited.
For those wanting something to store in the car boot
The Mobie is a small class 2 folding mobility scooter, perfect for transporting in the car boot, or even in the hold of an aeroplane if you’re travelling further afield!
With a maximum speed of 3.7mph and a range of 10 miles per charge*, the Mobie is a great option for those wanting to take a scooter on holiday. Its small size when folded means the Mobie will be your perfect travelling companion on most planes, trains, cruises, buses, coaches, and in the car.
(If you’re travelling on a plane and taking your scooter with you, be sure to get Mobility Scooter Insurance including baggage handler cover – it’s included in both our Standard and Extra policies).
For those wanting something small and sturdy
If you’re in search of a scooter that doesn’t take up too much room, but is still nice and durable, the Mighty Mini could be just what you’re looking for. With suspension for added comfort, an easy to use take-apart system, and a range of up to 8 miles*, this class 2 scooter is great for nipping around town.
For those wanting to travel a little further
The Mighty Mini Plus does exactly what it says on the tin. Everything the Mighty Mini does, plus a little extra! The range on the Mighty Mini Plus is extended from 8 miles up to 12 miles*, so you can charge your batteries less and get out more!
For the scooter user wanting to travel in luxury
The Vogue is a robust and stylish class 3 Mobility Scooter, suitable for travel on both pavements and roads.
With a range of 28 miles* and a luxury adjustable reclining Admiral’s seat, the Vogue is a luxury scooter that really allows you to travel in comfort. The Vogue’s easy-to-use controls, rear-view mirrors and fully auto electric safe braking system make it a safe option for those wanting to travel on the road as well as the pavement.
While it’s not a legal requirement to take out insurance on a mobility scooter, it can mean that you don’t have to worry about your it being damaged, stolen, or breaking down. Take a look at our Mobility Scooter Insurance page to find out how we can help to protect your investment.
Here at Fish, we’d also advise test driving a scooter before buying it if possible. Asking the retailer if they can provide some training can also be hugely beneficial. Not only will this help you to feel more confident operating the scooter, it may help to ensure you stay safe.
All the scooters mentioned in this blog can be purchased from Monarch Mobility, where their knowledgeable staff will be on hand to offer test drives, training, and scooter ownership tips.
*The range all these scooters can cover is dependent upon user weight, terrain, incline, temperature and battery conditions.
