Transporting a mobility scooter

Do you want to be able to take your scooter with you in a rental car, plane or on a cruise ship?  A micro-portable scooter is best to transport but sometimes too small if you are tall or a bigger person.  For simplicity, there are generally 3 classes of scooters; micro-portable, take apart; mid-sized and heavy duty or deluxe.  The weight capacities are 300 and 350 lbs.

Our most popular portable, take-apart scooter comes apart in about 30 seconds.  It can fit into the trunk of any car easily.

Mid-sized and deluxe, heavy duty scooters are perfect for taller and larger people and have longer batteries ranges.
