Protection for a power scooter may mean different things to different people. But, ultimately, every motorized scooter owner has an interest in protecting the investment made to maintain independent mobility.
For instance, if you generally park your scooter outdoors and are concerned about security, you might protect your mobility scooter by
- never leaving the key in the scooter's ignition.
- using an anti-theft lock and/or an alarm system.
- purchasing insurance protection for your electric scooter.
You might also want to protect your scooter against damage due to rain, heat, dust or everyday use. One way to do this is with protective mobility scooter accessories, such as a weather-resistant scooter cover.
