My husband has a mobility scooter which he owns, does anyone know where he can get his tyre repaired?

    Hi @Auburnann sorry for the late response. I hope the tyre has been repaired, the company should send a replacement. But our members may have other suggestions.

    @wilko has said on another post:

    "You can take out mobility scooter insurance about £60 plus a year they cover you for break down and get you home but not repair costs and other benefits third party cover, if you using mobility services the supplier may cover you in your rental plan . Good luck I have had three puntures able to fix and repair my self."

    If the scooter is owned outright, there are mobility scooter repair kits you can buy. If it is through motability or rented through another agency, you should get in touch with them.

    There are lots of videos on youtube about fixing mobility scooter tyres, changing tyres and also making them puncture proof.

    My recent scooters I have punctured proved them just hope it works ok when the time comes. Keeping the tyre at the correct pressure help longevity of the tyres and for s better ride and grip.
