Posts on some lightweight battery powered mobility scooters that can be used on the pavement and are mainly powered by lithium ion dry cell batteries.

If you have a Travelscoot mobility scooter you would like to sell then please email me at [email protected] I have successfully sold quite a few through this website. I will write a blog post or advert to let people know that one is available for purchase. I will then issue an email to everyone on my email subscription list and use social media to promote the sale. All you will need to do is send me a couple of photos, just one of the Travelscoot & one showing the battery details plus a brief description. I can advise you on a sensible price to ask for it. I will need your email address, the area where you live and the selling price. You are responsible for selling the Travelscoot but please tell me when you completed the sale.
