-- This time of year is so associated with schools breaking up and families heading off on holiday that sometimes we forget that actually the majority of people are not heading off on holiday abroad but spending their time in the UK, often taking day trips spread out over the summer.
The UK has such a wealth of beautiful spots and fantastic treasures that we can enjoy here at home. If you are worried that you might not be up to the walks do check with the particular location in advance as many of them offer mobility scooters to rent so that you can all make the most of your visit. Places like the RHS gardens at Wisely even have “top up power points “throughout the site so you can boost your battery charge whether you have brought your own or hired out a mobility scooter.
Hiring for short periods like this can be a very good way to see how you get on with a mobility scooter and how it works for you when out with family or friends. It may be that you really only need a bit of extra help when it is a full day out or it may be that you realise that your everyday life could be enhanced with a mobility scooter. Remember if you find that you particularly like the model you have hired and would like one for your own use we can usually source them for you at great prices and quick turnaround. Our new Mobility Scooter Guide and “Best for List” could be a good starting place if you want to look at a variety of reliable quality mobility scooters for your own use. To request a copy please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our customer services team on 0800 046 3949 and they will pop one in the post.
If you are heading off on holiday and staying away from home it can be useful to have items delivered directly to your holiday address. We are happy to do that for customers so do give us a call and let us know if we can help. Every year we find that someone urgently needs a replacement battery for their mobility scooter because they quite understandably are using it more on holiday and it may only then become apparent that a new one is needed. We’re happy to help but do flag that this is not your “home credit card” address just in case the security processing flags a discrepancy!
On a more discreet note we also know that products such as waterproof mattress covers or incontinence products are bulky so if it is easier to get us to ship to your holiday address just let us know.
Whatever your holiday plans are this year or if you are staying home we hope that the summer is kind to you.http://www.morethanmobility.com/Mobility-Scooters.html
