How to lift your mobility scooter into your vehicle
One of the best ways to load your mobility scooter into your car is to us a Autochair boot Hoist.
Not every trip out is a local one, and often you will want to head out further afield on your travels. Getting into the car can sometimes be a challenge, but what about the scooter? You definitely want to be mobile when you get to our destination.
Luckily there are tools that will help load your scooter into your car for the journey. An Auto Boot Hoist is the perfect equipment for loading and unloading the scooter into a vehicle. They fit most cars that have a hatchback, which means that you don’t have to get a specialised car to transport your scooter.
Easy to use, the Autochair Boot Hoists range has 3 different products that cater for different products and weights, from wheelchairs to bigger, heavier mobility scooters.

The best mobility scooter seating accessories to help you stay comfortable
Cushions for Mobility Scooters are a great accessory to help improve your ride. Out of the box, mobility scooters are quite comfortable, but as most users spend a lot of time out and about on their scooters, they sometimes need a little bit more comfort to ease the ride.
Purpose made support cushions are available for use with mobility scooters to provide that comfort. When choosing a cushion you ideally want one that will achieve the following:
- Help with seated posture.
- Relieve pressure on your coccyx.
- Provide a comfortable seating area.
- Is water resistant incase of rain.
- Is portable.
When sitting for a long time it is easy to slip into a posture that will lead to back ache. Having a cushion that not only gives back support, but also has a cut out at the back of the cushion to provide coccyx relief is a real plus point. The cushion needs not only to be comfortable, but also water resistant incase you get caught by an unexpected rain shower; there is nothing worse than sitting on a soggy cushion. If the cushion is good for long periods on your scooter then maybe it will be good for other seats, so make sure it’s easy to carry for when you have finished with your scooter.
The Harlin 2-way sculptured support cushion ticks all of the above points with ease. You can choose either a nodular foam coating on one side or turn it over for a flat cushion. Made for comfort it comes with a back supporting cushion along with the important coccyx cut out that will ensure relief for your lower back. British weather approved, it’s not only water proof, but light enough to be easily carried and even comes with its own built in carry handle. If you are looking for greater comfort on your scooter or just regular chairs, this may be the cushion for you.
How to extend the range of your scooter.
The best way to extend the range of your scooter is to invest in an extra battery.
The freedom that a mobility scooter provides has undoubtedly been life changing for some people, but one of the first questions that anyone who has used a scooter asks is ‘how far can I go before I have to recharge the battery?’ Unfortunately, this is a tough question to answer as there are many variables to take into consideration, such as the user’s weight, are they driving in a hilly environment or mainly flat? How much baggage are they carrying and how heavy is it?
Your range could be as low as 15 miles, but if all the variables are favorable you may get into the mid 20’s before needing to plug in. For some, this may be more than enough. As long as you remember to recharge regularly there should be no problem.
There are those though, who need to achieve more distance; either for their job or just because they love being out and about. Luckily mobility scooter batteries can be swapped out when they are low and a spare fully charged one slotted into place (just make sure you swap out before going fully flat as this can damage the battery) which will effectively double your range.
Once you are traveling in your local area, you will know what your average range will be and what your minimum safe ‘return to home’ charge is. If this range is not enough to get you through your driving day or you feel it’s a good idea to carry a spare just in case of unforeseen problems, then investing a spare battery might be the way to go.
