Mobility aid shop issues warning about buying equipment from overseas
The largest independent mobility supplies shop in Plymouth is issuing a warning to the local community about buying cheap mobility aid products from overseas retailers after they have seen an increase in them breaking down and being unable to be repaired.
Sunshine Care Mobility, based in Plympton, has had a number of broken down mobility scooters brought to them, however, as they were purchased overseas and the retailer is no longer active, parts are unavailable and the equipment can't be repaired.
Alex Buxton, Manager of the Sunshine Care Mobility shop said, "We are seeing a trend in which one off overseas retailers start selling extremely cheap mobility scooters online and once they're all sold, they shut down. The owner of the scooter then comes to us for a repair and we will do our best to help, but usually as the retailer has now closed, unfortunately we are unable to get the parts to mend the scooter. This means that the owner has to spend out more money on a replacement."
Alex added, "Mobility aids are extremely important as in most cases they help to bring some dignity, freedom and independence back to the user, and whilst shopping around to find the right product is a very good thing, the best product is not always the cheapest. At the shop we are always happy to have chat to offer advice so that the right product is found and money is not wasted."
