About the Scooter Store

The Scooter Store concept is simple and was designed in response to a demand from the public. We were commissioned to manufacture a Scooter Store which will accommodate a mobility scooter keeping it safely stored outside a person's property. We came up with our standard Scooter Store which has proved to be a great success.

The standard Scooter Store measures 1.525mm long x 1.220mm wide x 1.070mm high and is made using 2mm mild steel. They have a powder coated green finish. (Other colours are available upon request) The Scooter Store is powered by batteries which are charged by an automatic charger therefore the store requires a 240V electrical power supply to the double socket fitted inside the store (in most cases this would be included in your installation price and carried out when installing the store). This enables the user to plug into the electrical socket and charge the scooter when it is locked inside the store. The store has up and down push buttons to raise and lower the lid, these controls can be mounted on the left and right hand side of the store, or if required we can even demount the controls (see enclosed site plan). When the store is open a person over 6' can easily stand upright within the store. A lock is fitted to the store which cuts off the power to the opening mechanism.

We can make Scooter Stores to bespoke sizes where necessary, so if you have a larger or smaller scooter or for example a scooter with a canopy we can manufacture a store to suit your specific requirements. We also supply a double Scooter Store which measures 1.525mm long x 1.830mm wide x 1.070mm high. The double store allows two scooters to be parked side by side. Occasionally re-conditioned Scooter Stores are available which we sell on a ''first come, first served'' basis unless they are reserved by an order.

Planning permission is not normally required as the Scooter Store is a temporary structure and is in no way secured to the floor. The store itself weighs approximately half a ton and is delivered in a flat pack kit form for installation to awkward places. We have a delivery and installation service and prices vary depending on distance and destination.

The store requires very little maintenance, only oiling of the hinge and the lock, at regular intervals e.g. once a month.

Many of our stores have been funded through Disabled Facility Grants. For information on how to apply for a grant you need to contact your local Social Services department and ask to speak to an Occupational Therapist.
