Home visit and test drives

Once you’ve chosen a product, your dealer will arrange for you to test drive different makes and models to see which one best suits your needs.

The test drive is to understand what a normal trip or day would be for you. And where you’re going to store and charge that product, because that really helps them narrow down what the right solution is."

Jim Wood, Relations Manager for scooters and powered wheelchairs

Home visits

When you’ve decided on the scooter or powered wheelchair that you think you might want, the next step is to speak to a dealer. They’ll talk you through everything.

They’ll then bring a few products to your home that they think are most suitable. You’ll be able to test drive these in and around your home to see which you’re most comfortable using.

Did you know that you can visit a dealer showroom to test drive different makes and models instead? Contact your dealer to arrange a visit.
