Foldable, Easy to Fold and Transport

Mobility scooters come in many varieties and many of them are foldable. When you purchase a mobility scooter, you can check whether it has this feature. Being foldable lends a number of advantages for the scooter. For example, if your home is small with less storage space, then a folding mobility scooter could be good for your needs. Further, foldable scooters are a great help when you travel. You can conveniently fold and place them in the trunk of the car.

Foldable mobility scooters weigh as low as sixty pounds, so they are very easy and comfortable to carry while traveling. They are the best option for indoor use, although outdoor travel can be a little rough because of the weight and the stability is slightly lower than the other models. Nevertheless, a foldable mobility scooter can make your life very easy in several ways.

    I am interested in getting a scooter that folds to travel Europe. I use a three wheel scooter at home and take it in the car and go out with the scooter. I was hoping to find one that folds flater and is a bit more light weight. My daughter has a bad back and she finds the weight of the one we currently have to pull on her back when she disassembles the scooter to put it in the trunk of the car. Can you recommend a scooter?
    Thank you Lil

    Hi Lillian, there are a number of fold-able scooters now available.
    It depends on what features you can do without, as to how small it will pack down to and the weight.
    There is a selection of portable scooters here:

    I don’t know what you have currently got, but maybe the Luggie Folding Travel Scooter would be more ideal.
    You could phone the suppliers for more information on how small they pack down.
    All the best, Ian

    I am interested in a lightweight scooter that folds so that my husband and I can use it to take trips and enjoy our weekends out. It is important that Medicare pick up some of the cost. It is also important that no one piece weigh over 50-100lbs

    I suggest also phoning the suppliers for more information about the weight of each part.
    They should be able to tell you which scooters to get that Medicare can help with the costs.

    All the best, Ian

    have pride mobility go go elite and after 2,5 years the brake has broken.
    is there a more reliable unit?

  8. Ian says:

    Hi Yvette, sorry to hear of your troubles. It is quite a light weight scooter which could have something to do with the brakes breaking down.
    Depending how bad they are, I suggest first getting an approved repairer to look at it to see what it would cost to get fixed.

    Like other transport, they do require servicing which should pick up any issues before they become bigger problems.
    A more solid scooter might suit your needs better if you do a lot of outside traveling, but then these are not as portable if you need to take it apart.

    All the best for 2012, kind regards, Ian
