Your mobility scooter, which adds independence to your life, must be maintained and kept in top condition to ensure it functions well when in use. While it is always recommended to follow the manufacturer’s guide for maintenance, you can also do it yourself by paying attention to five things:


It is obvious that the tires are constantly exposed to general wear and tear. Therefore, regular inspection is imperative to ensure a safe driving experience. Check for punctures or other signs of damage before taking your scooter out and, if possible, after any lengthy use. This ensures that any tire issues will be dealt with promptly.  Consult a service provider recommended by the manufacture, to make sure you receive the best service with the right parts.


It takes around 8-10 hours of charging for the battery to be fully charged and ready to power your scooter.  Keep it charged when not in use so you will always have the security of knowing your scooter is fully powered and ready to go.  As a precaution, you should regularly check the battery, its charger, and other components to ensure they are in good working order.  If you suspect a problem, please check with the manufacturer to find a recommended solution or service provider.

Weather protection

It is a good idea to have weather protection accessories for your scooter. For instance, waterproof covers will protect the scooter from rain, dust, and other weather elements that could cause damage.  If possible, park your scooter in a garage, carport or any secure, dry area.


Regular servicing is essential to the longevity of your mobility scooter. Experts usually suggest getting the scooter serviced at least once a year for better performance. Servicing includes numerous performance tests as well as a full battery drop test to assess the scooter’s overall health. Failure to get regular service check-ups could result in damage, expensive repairs or your scooter may stop working.

Cleaning and storing the scooter

If you encounter bad weather while out on your scooter, it is best to park or store your scooter in a protected spot or garage to avoid further exposure. Make sure to inspect your scooter and take care of any excess dirt and debris that may be stuck to the tires or the scooter body.  Cleaning prevents the buildup of items that clog tires, clog moving parts or encourage rust. Furthermore, placing the scooter in a clean, safe and dry environment will impact its performance, endurance and continued efficiency.
