The cost of mobility can get expensive when you need assistance in doing so. Are you in a situation where you or a loved one needs some help getting around, but you’re also on a budget? You’re not alone. Luckily, there are several options to fit your needs and budget.
For example, an electric scooter may be the ideal mobility product for you, but is it really necessary to buy one to use for only a short amount of time? Good news! With a scooter rental, you can enjoy assisted mobility on a short-term basis. Here’s what you should consider when it comes to renting versus buying to ensure you have what you need at the most cost-effective price…
When Does Buying Mobility Products Make Sense?
If your doctor indicates you will be safer being in a wheelchair or an electric scooter for at least 50% of your waking hours, it probably makes sense to buy one instead of renting it. Buying a mobility product may be costly upfront, but it will pay for itself over time when you think about the happiness and accessibility it provides. And when (and if) you decide to buy one, you can customize it to your liking with different styles, colors, and other features to make you feel like it’s yours — because it is!
When to Consider Renting Mobility Products
Renting an electric scooter makes sense in situations where you may have to travel, if you’re only temporarily injured or disabled, or if you want to try different options out before buying one. You can rent mobility products for durations ranging from a single day to several months. It’s also worth noting that tow bars and auto lifts can be rented for daily excursions just like a scooter. Of course, depending on how long you’ll need these products, the cost can add up over time. Be sure to take this into consideration. If the cost of the rental over time will exceed the cost of buying a new one, it may be worth just buying it outright.
