Why don’t you list prices for mobility scooters? 2017-07-31T15:59:20+00:00

Parkgate Mobility takes its responsibilities as a dealer of these products very seriously.  We have never, and will never, sell scooters online. As a responsible seller, we always require that customers try the scooter first and are completely happy with their choice before buying and that they, and people around them will be safe when they are driving.  The thought of selling someone a scooter blindly on the internet without them trying it and being able to assess their needs is totally against our principles.

There are many downsides to buying scooters online.  We often hear horror stories of customers receiving a box on their doorstep and having to build the scooter themselves, having to courier the scooter back to the retailer for any repairs and having no backup in case of any breakdowns.

Do you buy mobility scooters? 2017-07-31T15:56:30+00:00

Not as such, we do however offer a trade in option against the value of any new scooter or powerchair.

If you are looking to sell your scooter, we recommend local press listing such as the free ads or advertising locally in post offices etc.
