Recently, we’ve had quite a few mobility scooter customers who were kind enough to share their stories with us and we wanted to pass on the good news!
All of these customers, without exception, have mobility issues that were severely impacting their lives … until, and it’s a big until, they visited our store and chose the perfect mobility scooters for their individual lifestyles.
One customer’s story is so inspiring that we just have to tell you about him.
Bob came to our store earlier this year looking for an ‘awesome’ mobility scooter. If you ever meet Bob, you’ll soon realise that his young-at-heart, fun-loving outlook on life makes him the perfect match for Pride’s Sport Rider, a Harley-esque mobility scooter that is the height of cool, easy riding.
Bob started by telling us, ‘I’ve always been the life and soul of the party until I started to have some health issues that made it hard for me to walk or stand for even short periods of time. I was so against the idea of getting a mobility scooter, but I missed my active way of life and I gave into pressure from my wife to visit Western Stairlifts, which, I have to admit, has to be one of the best decisions of my life!”
We had a lot of fun working with Bob as he wanted to try everything in the store! He finally settled on the Pride Sport Rider, a sporty, sleek model that boasts a large central headlight, and chrome-style handlebars and detailing. His exact words were, “I don’t feel like a grandpa on this one; it just feels like it was made for me to cruise around town”. And that’s exactly what Bob’s been doing since his mobility scooter was delivered. He told us that he feels as though he has his life back again and is now back to his sociable, old self.
It’s a fact that most people, at some point in their lives, will experience temporary or lifelong mobility issues, but as Bob has shown us, that doesn’t mean that you have to compromise your lifestyle one iota! If you feel that your social life has started to go downhill, you’ll find that one of our mobility scooters can truly change your quality of life for the better.
