A hard price to beat, especially if you could not claim vat relief.
4mph though. Pedestrians will be able to get out of the way at that speed! oO
Lol! You'd be amazed what 4mph ACTUALLY feels like! I've had to slow mine down just so people can keep up with me. You won't out pace anyone running but its definitely up there with a Power Walker!
I'll get one for the wife.
"If you are not eligible for VAT Relief then please select the option above"
is the option "idle t*at" available? if so I'll get one for my brother ☺

Sounds a decent swap to me.
Benidorm here I come.

She'll need it after I'm finished with her.

On a serious note, I don't think it would be a good getaway vehicle.

I don't have any disabilities, but I'm temped to get one of these just to drive around Morrisons in a really inconsiderate fashion and get in the way of everyone else.
:-)
Cheap for a generic no-name scooter. These are meant to be really basic and can be unstable on pavements, tempted to spend a bit more for one with suspension and real wheels.

72 year old man died in Carmarthen after going down a hill in his mobility scooter and hitting a wall !
To correct lots of silly information posted by people here:

I am disabled and have 2 mobility scooters i use regularly, one of these "boot scooters" that is usually attached to the hoist in my car for everyday use (supermarkets, shopping centres and city centre pavements) and an 8mph larger scooter with suspension and inflatable tyres that i use for longer days out and more uneven terrain (theme parks, gravel paths, zoos, farms, etc)

- This is a 4mph boot scooter, that is average walking speed and does not seem slow at all, in fact you will find yourself using at at 1/2 to 2/3 speed most of the time.

- They accelerate fast and have tight turning circles, usually inside their own length, so you really are quite nimble

- They break down into 5 parts: front frame with steering column, rear wheels with motor, seat, battery pack, basket. The heaviest part is actually usually the front section with the steering column, but is similar to the battery pack and rear section (10kg-15kg)

- DON'T expect to fit this in the back of a i10 or something it is still quite large broken down, the most important measurement is the length of the front section. I have a pride gogo version of this scooter and have it, assembled on a hoist, stowed lengthways in the boot of a C4 Grand Piccaso without needing to put the rear (middle row) seats down

- they have NO suspension and solid rubber or plastic "tyres" but they are not unsafe or unsteady on pavements as long as you approach dropped curbs squarely. they have low ground clearance so really slabs, tarmac and block paving is all you want to use them for outside on a regular basis. HOWEVER they will travel on gravel, and (DRY) compacted earth reasonably well if needed, however you will feel this in your backside and back with a very unconformable ride.

- charge is good for about 3 miles with average use, the battery pack can be removed for charging so you don't need to run an extension out to the car. In practice this is enough to potter around a large supermarket maybe 10 times or around town 2 or 3 times.

- Joking about fat and lazy people aside, these are very practical little scooters that give independence to many thousands of people that although not wheelchair bound wouldn't be able to even go shopping alone without one.

Supermarkets loan larger scooters but quality and charging is inconsistent and for many of us getting from the car park to the front of store alone is a challenge in itself.
Good info Wibblefish A friend of mine thought this would be perfect for her and was swayed by the price. She found it difficult to manage kerbs and uneven pavements, so then bought one with pneumatic tyres which was far better for her needs, and sold the Llloyds one second hand for less than half what she paid.
You do not have to be disabled to drive an IMV , they are also is common among drink drivers whom have lost their licence and handy to go to the pub !

Above 4 mph you would need lights . OP,s version is a good price , however anyone in the market for one should check out newsagent windows card adds or supermarket private card adds.
The bigger version , bumper style car ones go for several thousand pounds new , but they nearly all out live their owners . The relatives then sell the IMV in the private adds for silly money.
I know someone who has acquired a fleet of these in different versions , including the windscreen rain cover tops . The downside is the batteries , usually two of them. He has to keep them on constant charge otherwise they have a habit of going defunct and are expensive to replace.
This is no good if you live in a hilly place I am having to sell mine. Only used it 3 times & it got a crack in the floor
