Mobility Scooter Transportation Accessories

If you need a mobility scooter, you'll need to be able to bring it with you wherever you need it, which is where these accessories come in handy. You wouldn't be able to fit your scooter in the passenger seat of your car, for example. These accessories allow you to transport your mobility scooter so that you can have it when you reach the end destination of your next long — or short — trip.

  • Carriers: Scooter carriers attach to the back of your car or vehicle. Carriers allow the user to drive their scooter onto a platform to hold the scooter on the outside of the vehicle, while scooter lifts work like a small crane to lift the scooter into the trunk.
  • Haulers: Scooter haulers are similar to motorcycle haulers. They feature a leading ramp that a user can use to drive their scooter onto the platform their scooter can rest on.

Comfort and Disability Accessories for Mobility Scooters

Once you've found the perfect mobility scooter for your needs, it's important to make sure that you're comfortable in it. This will allow you to get around with ease and without any pain or discomfort. There are a variety of different comfort and disability accessories available to help you do just that. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Ramps: A portable ramp allows you access in and out of buildings and vehicles. Ramps are available in solid one-piece and hinged dingle-fold varieties, with different lengths depending on your needs
  • Backrests: You can purchase a new backrest and seat cushion for your scooter if yours doesn't feel comfortable.
  • Disability Accessories: Cane holders and oxygen tank holders let you bring whatever additional assistive devices you need with you while you're on the go.

Covers and Shades for Mobility Scooters

If you're using a mobility scooter to get around, you'll definitely want to have a sun shade or cover for it. This will protect you from the sun's harmful UV rays and keep you cool during those hot summer days. There are all sorts of different sun shades and covers available, so be sure to find one that works best

  • Umbrellas: Installing an umbrella holder to your scooter allows you to fit your umbrella on for hands-free rain protection.
  • Canopies: Canopies have mesh backs and sides for ventilation, while also protecting you from wind and rain.
  • Sun Shades: Sun shades stay directly overhead to provide shade on hot days. If you get caught in the rain while you have it up, most sun shades are made of water-resistant material!
  • Covers: A cover can be put over your scooter to protect it while it's in a carrier or hauler. You can also get covers for your handlebars so you can keep them dry in the rain, even while using them.

Security/Anti-Theft Accessories

There are a variety of different anti-theft and security accessories available for mobility scooters to help prevent your scooter from being stolen. Some of the most popular include:

  • Cable locks: A cable lock is a simple and easy way to secure your mobility scooter to a fixed object.
  • Wheel locks: Wheel locks prevent your scooter from being wheeled away by an intruder.
  • Alarm systems: There are a variety of different alarm systems available that will sound an alarm if someone attempts to tamper with your scooter or move it without permission.
  • Anti-theft bags: These bags are designed to be placed over the scooter's seat and prevent someone from being able to sit on it and ride away.
  • GPS tracking devices: GPS tracking devices can be helpful in recovering a stolen scooter should the worst happen.

Other Accessories for Mobility Scooters

Another great thing about mobility scooters is that there are a variety of different accessories available to make them even more useful and enjoyable. Some of the most popular include:

  • Lights: You can find lights to attach to the handlebars, as well as light kits with strips of lights that can shine in multiple functions and colors.
  • Mirrors: A mirror or two mounted to the handlebars allows you to better see what's behind and around you as you travel in your scooter.
  • Flags: A bold-colored flag attached to the back of your scooter increases your visibility to others, and also customizes your scooter to make it yours.

  • Posable/flexible arm makes rear sight easier
  • Durable glass, won’t break easy

Cons
