For some people, getting hold of an affordable mobility scooter can sometimes be a problem, there is the option of buying a second hand one but there is also a chance of being able to get a fully working second hand scooter for free.
Sometimes people can find themselves with a mobility scooter in their possession, either from temporary use for themselves that they no longer require any more or from a relative who no longer uses their mobility scooter and some people may not be looking for any money for it and take pleasure from being able to pass it onto someone who needs one.
It would probably surprise a lot of people that there are potentially hundreds of mobility scooters sitting in peoples garages and other storage spaces, not being used, just collecting dust and looking for an owner.
Its not surprising that many people will take one for free if they can get one, but often its probably down to the current owner not knowing where to start in order to pass their mobility scooter onto someone else.
A good place to look may be in your local newspaper and classifieds, they often have sections for people giving away possessions and of course keeping your ears open for any potential unused mobility scooters, but also letting your friends, neighbours and relatives know that you are on the lookout for one.
As long as any freebie mobility scooter available to you is in good working order and does not require you to have to start spending a lot to fix something then it can work out pretty nice for you.
Even if you do find one offered for free that maybe just needs a replacement battery for example, that’s still a good situation and keeps any cost minimal.
With a bit of luck and making contact with the right person at just the right time you may be able to get your hands on a good working mobility scooter with no cost to you at all.
