    Its hard to recommend as it is very dependant on the individual and if you want to take it on or off road and it is comfortable for you 

    A good shop should be best to advise you

    Best way is to look for a guide how to buy mobility scooter (linked one for you as example) just be sure to read at least 3 different ones online. I remember I took my time going from seller to seller and asking lots questions. If that is not enough, you can also try contacting with the guys who sell or make them, as janer said, if they are normal guys, they should know that someone with disability or movement problems needs their stuff and should advise the best one, not the most expensive one. Hope that helps you.

    Hello, cost and your own abilities in lifting the parts when the boot scooter is separated down can be a deciding factor. Boot scooter are great for going around shopping malls ect smooth floors no kerbs ect. But f you want a bigger model either class 2 or 3 then a call to s company called Mobility Giant who have a great site for viewing on line and hire out scooters on a like for like service but cheaper than the mobility scheme.,All their scooters are ex mobility scooters fitted with new batteries, ect. I have used them myself I couldn’t fault them.
