Maintaining Your Travel Mobility Scooter

If you have a disability and you still want to lead an active life, a travel mobility scooter can keep you safe and comfortable on your journey. Although similar to regular mobility scooters, they are lightweight and foldable which makes them easier to transport. To prolong the life of your travel scooter, the following maintenance tips should be done before and after every trip.

Maintaining Your Travel Mobility Scooter

Gentle Cleaning

Clean your travel scooter often to prevent dirt from scratching it. Use a damp cloth with damp soapy water to gently wipe it down.  Think about using a cover to protect it from sunlight, dust and water. The cover will also protect your scooter during transportation.

Regular Use

If you use your mobility scooter maybe once a year while on vacation, it can fall into disrepair fairly quickly. You should take it out for a spin even if you aren’t planning a trip anytime soon. Doing this will keep the mechanical parts in good working order and might help you to identify any major issues before your trip.

Battery Care

Always keep your battery fully charged, that way it is good to go anytime you need it. Make sure your main and extra batteries along with the charger are in good working order before your trip. That way you can keep mobile when on your trip. Otherwise if it breaks down, you will be stuck with a mobility scooter that is useless on your trip.

Tires

Take a look at your tires prior to going on your trip. Make sure they are in good working order and there are no signs of wear or punctures. Be sure to adhere to the maker’s suggestions regarding air pressure in the tires. If the tires are too soft, it will affect the efficiency of your travel mobility scooter. If they are too hard, the tire could explode when you are riding around.

Trial Run

A couple weeks before your trip, you should take your travel scooter for a spin. That way you can make sure that it is in good working order and if you do find any problems you will have enough time to address them before your trip.

Once you take good care of your travel mobility scooter, your trips will be much more enjoyable. Just follow these simple maintenance tips and your scooter will be in perfect working order for anytime you are ready to go on a trip.
