Best Mobility Scooter Stores

Who has the best Mobility Scooters? For those with difficulties getting around at home or in public, mobility scooters are the most popular way of helping them stay active and engaged in life. From simplifying shopping trips to making it possible to get safely from one room to another, mobility scooters make it possible to stay independent even when users are managing difficult health conditions that affect their mobility.

When deciding which mobility scooter is right for you or for a loved one, the first consideration is what it will be used for. For example, the type of scooter you'd buy for someone who will use it primarily indoors is vastly different from what would be necessary for long trips outside. Another factor to consider is weight and portability: will you need to be able to lift it into a van or other vehicle for transport?

Go Mobility Scooters

GO MOBILITY SCOOTERSTopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award

Go Mobility Scooters offers the best possible experience for buying and owning a mobility scooter - partly because one of its co-owners is a scooter user himself. This store has numerous customer-friendly features, like a helpful, informative website, free shipping on every mobility scooter, a generous return policy, and in-home service plans for one year. A strong reputation both with customers and the BBB are proof that Go Mobility is the best choice for your mobility scooter purchase.

They accomplish this through a website full of helpful articles and images, a generous return policy, and a 110% price match guarantee.

Easy Med Online

EASY MED ONLINE

Easy Med Online doesn't have a polished online store, but they more than make up for it with customer-friendly policies and an ample array of mobility scooters from a wide range of manufacturers. You'll get free shipping and a 1-year, in-home service warranty with every machine, and returns can be made on all equipment in new condition. Easy Med Online continues to be a trusted option for buying a mobility scooter.

Medical Supply Depot

MEDICAL SUPPLY DEPOT

Medical Supply Depot is based in New York and has a track record of good customer service as an accredited store with the BBB. The website has room to improve by offering more direct information about manufacturer warranties, but the brands they carry are reputable. This is a retailer to consider when buying a mobility scooter.

Colonial Medical

COLONIAL MEDICAL

Colonial Medical has been in business for over 3 decades and has an A+ rating with the BBB. All of their scooters come with a lifetime warranty, but their store doesn't give much information about how that is fulfilled. You'll save money with free shipping on your scooter order, and their selection includes more than 20 different models.

CWI Medical

CWI MEDICAL

CWI Medical has improved, expanding their selection of mobility scooters to 16 in the past few years and offering a rewards program for returning customers. The website is also easier to use. But, store policy still doesn't allow you to return a scooter for any reason if it's already been assembled, and CWI's inventory is still limited to a single brand.

Hoveround

HOVEROUND

Hoveround has been around for a long time. They're best known for working with Medicare and insurance companies to help customers get their mobility scooters and power wheelchairs covered for little to no out-of-pocket costs. Customer experiences with the retailer are very mixed, with many happy during the order process but much less so when it comes time to get service on failing equipment.

All Electric Scooters

ALL ELECTRIC SCOOTERS

All Electric Scooters carries three brands of scooters and a good selection of extras like lifts, ramps, and trailers. You'll get free shipping and a 1-year in-home warranty on your mobility scooter purchase, but their not-so-stellar reputation for customer service after your order will probably have you shopping at another store.

US Medical Supplies

US MEDICAL SUPPLIES

US Medical Supplies carries a good selection of mobility scooters, and the site makes it easy to find what you're looking for. But, a less-than-terrific reputation for customer service, unclear return policy for scooters, and having to call to get the lowest price are factors that might have you looking at another store for your purchase.

Mobility Ready

MOBILITY READY

Mobility Ready is a small, authorized retailer for a number of mobility scooter brands. The site is relatively easy to use, and customers get free shipping in the lower 48 states. We didn't find a BBB listing for this store, or many customers with comments about their experience during or after the buying process. And, limitations to their returns and warranties may leave you wondering if you can count on Mobility Ready once your scooter is delivered.

Heartland America

HEARTLAND AMERICA

Heartland America is "the great deal company", which means that they do not specialize in scooters or even medical equipment in general. You'll only find two low-end scooters sold here, with regular shipping costs of almost $150. With a limited warranty of just 6 months and no particular expertise with mobility scooters, Heartland America is not a store we would choose for our purchase. Read More... Visit

Continued from above

And, of course, you'll need to keep in mind the needs of the person who will be using the mobility scooter; factors like size, ability to use one or both hands, and other personal characteristics can impact which scooters are a good match.

Because so many of the industry's top retailers of mobility scooters have online stores, you can easily find the right one without even leaving home. For people with challenges getting around, this is a huge plus. As you consider which store to use for your scooter investment, here are several factors to bear in mind:

  • Price. What will you spend to buy your scooter from this retailer? Will you pay for shipping/delivery? Are there any discounts available that can make your purchase more affordable?
  • Selection. How many scooters does the company carry? Are they all available, or are there models that are regularly out of stock? Do they have a variety of styles and features to choose from?
  • Policies. Does the retailer offer a satisfaction guarantee, return policy, or warranty coverage? If you get a warranty, will you have to bring the scooter to a repair facility for service, or can they send someone to you?
  • Reputation. What do customers have to say about their experience with the business? Is it rated and/or accredited by the BBB?
  • TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Mobility Scooter stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right mobility scooter to maintain your active, healthy lifestyle!

Benefits of Mobility Scooters

From the first wheelbarrow-type devices to the lightweight, folding metal wheelchairs invented in the 1930s, wheelchairs had one thing in common: they all required some sort of manual propulsion, either by the person seated in the chair or by a helper. Even the most technologically advance manual wheelchairs require a certain amount of upper-body strength and digital dexterity.

More recently, technical developments in battery and propulsion systems have made possible motorized wheelchairs and scooters. Now even people with limited upper-body strength or manual dexterity are able to take themselves from point A to point B with perhaps only limited assistance. Motorized wheelchairs and mobility scooters provide a level of independence to people who are unable to propel themselves in a manual wheelchair or who might require a wheelchair to travel over terrain that would be challenging in a manual wheelchair. And using a mobility scooter or powered chair instead of a cane or walker might actually help prevent further injury from falls.

Whether the reason is age, illness, or injury, with a motorized wheelchair or scooter you don't need someone to push you around. These devices now allow you to:

  • Participate more easily in family get-togethers
  • Go shopping at the grocery store or the mall
  • Attend a theater performance or a sporting event
  • Travel faster and more safely than walking with a cane or using a walker

In addition, compact and maneuverable powered wheelchairs can help you get around your own home, with minimal structural adaptation. With a tight turning radius and no handlebars, a powered wheelchair allows you to pull right up to a table or counter with ease.

A mobility scooter is most helpful for a person with conditions such as coronary or lung problems, arthritis, weight issues, and so on who can still stand and walk a few steps, sit upright without support, and steer with the handlebar controls. When mounting or dismounting from a mobility scooter, being able to turn the seat right or left makes it easier to step on or off than having to move the foot rests on a conventional wheelchair.

Mobility scooters do not look like wheelchairs; they can look way cooler. You can find models that are styled after spiffy Italian scooters in bright colors, or black and chrome motorcycle-styled "choppers." Current battery technology allows for a range of 15-20 miles before requiring a recharge. And in general, mobility scooters are cheaper than powered wheelchairs. You can also get scooters that are easy to transport, folding small enough to fit in the trunk of a car.
