Renting vs. Buying Mobility Scooters

Pride Revo

We’ll walk you through the factors to consider when making this decision.  

When to Rent a Mobility Scooter

You should rent a mobility scooter if you’re going on vacation or heading out of town for a short period of time, without bringing a scooter along. You should also consider renting a mobility scooter during recovery from a surgery, illness, injury, or even in later stages of pregnancy.  A rental can even be a good choice while your current scooter is being repaired.

Benefits of Mobility Scooters

Easy to Use

Mobility scooters are easy to operate, and they don’t take a physical toll on your body.


 Because mobility scooters are easy to operate, they give you the freedom to move around without depending on somebody else. You can go to nearby parks, local shops, neighbors’ houses, and other places close to home thanks to your mobility scooter.

Access to Public Transportation

 Mobility scooters are allowed on almost any form of public transportation if they meet certain criteria. This is including buses and airplanes.  Many venues, such as stadiums and theme parks, accommodate mobility scooter rentals, too.  

Helping to prevent falling

 Since you’re seated while operating a scooter, you no longer have to rely on body strength or a walker to avoid falling.  Mobility scooters are more secure than other devices. 

Quick turnaround from injury

Using a mobility scooter helps your muscles heal faster.  This is because, while sitting, you’re not putting them through as much strain as they’d endure while walking.
