Your batteries are very important, they make your scooter or wheelchair move, the lights and equipment fitted to it work and help you go where you need to with the freedom that you deserve.
Contact us today to book a battery check, it is free if you purchase your batteries from us at the time of the inspection.
Batteries fail for a variety of reasons, some of these are listed below;
Faulty charging: If your battery charger has a fault or you incorrectly charge your batteries.
Age: When your batteries get old, they begin to fail, this means that the distance you can travel will reduce and eventually they won’t be able to move your wheelchair or mobility scooter.
Cold weather: Cold weather affects every part of your wheelchair or mobility scooter which puts more strain on older batteries.
A battery test costs £35 plus vat but is free if your batteries are faulty and you choose to purchase your batteries from us at the time of the inspection.

Tyres are one of the most important parts of your mobility scooter or wheelchair and yet they are often the most overlooked part. Your tyres connect you to the road or pavement, they help you speed up, slow down, steer, avoid sliding and stop safely.
Like most things, tyres are affected by age and either frequent or not enough use. Tyres can crack or split, lose grip, become deflated (if pneumatic) and even become misshapen if solid tyres.
Contact us today to book a tyre check, it is free if you purchase your tyres from us at the time of the inspection.
We have listed some of the questions that we are asked most frequently along with the answers to help you understand the importance of responsible tyre care;
What does my tyre tread do? The tread of your tyre helps your wheelchair or mobility scooter grip the road or pavement, these grooves help move the water when driving through puddles or surface water allowing the tyre to grip helping you accelerate, slow down and keep control.
What is the minimum tread depth? Whilst there is no minimum tread depth for tyres on wheelchairs and mobility scooters we recommend that you avoid wearing your tyre tread below 1mm, this is the minimum depth for tyre tread for motorcycles in the UK. If you’re in doubt about the safety of your tyres then we can check them for you and advise you on if, and when, to replace them.
How often should I check my tyres? Your tyres are checked during every annual service, these checks should give you an indication of how long you have left before your tyres need to be replaced. We also recommend that you check your tyres for signs of low tread “balding” of the tyres and low tyre pressure or flat tyres each day before you go out in your mobility scooter or wheelchair.
How often should I replace my tyres? Your tyres should be replaced if they become damaged or if the tread depth is below the recommended limit. Whilst we would love to give you a timescale for this, it really depends on how often you use your mobility scooter or wheelchair and how far you travel when you do, the simple rule is the more that you use your mobility scooter or wheelchair, the more often you will need to replace the tyres.
Which is best, Solid “puncture proof” tyres or inflatable “Pneumatic” tyres? This is mostly down to personal preference although some mobility scooters and wheelchairs come with only solid tyres.
Pneumatic tyres: These tyres are inflatable so they give a smoother ride, they must have the correct air pressure set to ensure that they have good grip and that the tyre lasts for as long as possible.
Solid tyres: These tyres are puncture proof which ensures that you will not get stuck with a flat tyre but it does mean that the ride is more bumpy and less comfortable.
