What Is a Mobility Scooter?

Mobility scooters (also known as an ECV or electric convenience vehicle), are battery-powered devices that are used by riders who have difficulty walking over medium to long distances. These scooters are powered by quiet-running electric motors and come in three or four wheel models. They are steered using handlebars that are attached to a vertical arm known as a tiller. Scooters are great for outdoor use and can be driven easily over a variety of surfaces. Scooters are also offered in portable models that can be easily stowed in the trunk of your car. Read further to learm more about the different types of scooters we have available for rent.

Electric Scooters (Transportable)

Transportable scooters are collapsible and break into several pieces for easy storage in the trunks of most vehicles. Generally, these scooters will have removable seats, batteries and rear drive assemblies (the rear wheels and battery compartment). Some models also have a base that can be further disassembled.

These scooters can be disassembled and loaded into the trunk of a medium-to-full-sized car (with the heaviest piece weighing between 40 and 60 lbs).

The maximum weight capacity for these vehicles are between 250lbs and 300lbs.

Electric Scooters (Standard)

Standard scooters are similar to the transportable models above, but are designed to have more stability and an increased weight capacity. Standard models are versatile and can be used both indoors and out.

These scooters cannot be disassembled completely -- the tiller folds down and the seat is removable. These scooters are are more suitable to be transported in a mini-van or SUV.

The maximum weight capacity for these vehicles are 300lbs for a Standard model and 450lbs for a Heavy Duty model.

Powerchairs

Powerchairs offer a shorter wheel base than traditional wheelchairs for excellent maneuverability in small spaces. Although they have a compact design, many models do not easily disassemble. We recommend using a passenger van or SUV with a removable third row seat if you plan to transport the chair.

The maximum weight capacity for these vehicles are 250lbs for a Standard model and 450lbs for a Heavy Duty model.

Powerchair - 250lb weight capacity

Manual Wheelchairs

Manual Wheelchairs offer the lightest solution for a mobility assistance vehicle. They are maneuverable, comfortable and can be folded down for storage in the trunks of most vehicles.

The maximum weight capacity for a standard manual wheelchair is 250lbs. Heavy duty models are available with weight capacities of up to 450lbs.
