Another thing to consider is the size of your home and the area in which you'll be using the mobility scooter. You won't want to get a scooter that's too wide or too long and won't fit through doorways, or in rooms of your home. A third thing to consider when choosing the size of your mobility scooter is whether or not you're going to need to transport your scooter, and how you would accomplish this. If your scooter needs to be able to fold down to fit into a trunk of a car, this is something you'll need to tell your mobility scooter salesperson.
