A great boon to users of Mobility Scooters is the introduction of a mobility scooter trailer that dismantles and fits in the boot of a car. Mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs in general have proven to be of great benefit to handicapped and partially disabled people for quite a while now. Otherwise they would have previously be dependent on others to push their wheelchair for them. With a powered wheelchair or scooter they are able to travel by themselves up to distances of 25 miles at speeds of up to 8 mph - a great improvement to how things used to be.
One difficulty with these vehicles was if you needed to take them with you when travelling distances in a car or similar vehicle. For example if the person was going on holiday or travelling to see a distant friend or relative. Some of these scooters are small and lightweight and can easily be placed in the trunk of a car. However the larger sizes are to big and heavy to be used in this way, so the only previous way was by using a trailer to transport their mobility scooter.
Not everyone has the space to store a regular trailer, and security is always an issue with trailers also. A new type of trailer has been developed that quickly and easily dismantles in moments without the use of tools and can be carried in the boot or trunk of even a small car such as a Citroen ax and similar.
Made of Aluminum these small,lightweight trailers can be stored anywhere taking up little space, in a garage, under a bench or even in a cupboard or in fact anywhere indoors, which eliminates the security and storage worries associated with conventional trailer.
Capable of carrying up to 200 kg these trailers can also be used as a conventional mini-trailer, whenever a small portable trailer is required.
Mobility scooter carriers that fit on the tow bars of Vehicles are also available, but in most cases they are unsuitable because of the limit of how much vertical weight the towbar can carry. Not a problem on large vehicles like a motor home or RV, but on a car they are often not suitable. However a collapsible mobility scooter trailer can be used to transport even the heaviest scooter behind even the smallest car. A great boon to disabled people who require more freedom and ability to enjoy their lives.
