Proper Storage for Mobility Scooters: Can You Keep Them Outdoors?

When it comes to maintaining your mobility scooter's longevity and performance, proper storage is key. A common question users ask is whether mobility scooters can be stored outside. In short, it's not recommended as exposure to the elements can lead to rust, battery damage, and wear on electrical components.

But what if indoor storage isn't an option? Here are some tips to help protect your investment when outdoor storage is your only choice:

  1. Use a Weatherproof Cover: Invest in a high-quality, weather-resistant cover. This will protect your scooter from rain, snow, and sun damage. Ensure the cover is well-fitting to prevent it from blowing away or letting moisture in.

  2. Elevate the Scooter: If possible, store your scooter on an elevated platform to avoid standing water. This can help prevent corrosion of metal parts and wheel damage.

  3. Battery Care: Batteries are particularly sensitive to temperature extremes. If you must store your scooter outside, consider removing the battery and storing it in a cool, dry place indoors.

  4. Routine Maintenance: Regularly check your mobility scooter for signs of rust or damage and apply lubricants to any moving parts to keep them functioning properly.

  5. Secure Storage: To deter theft, ensure your scooter is locked and secured. You might want to consider chaining it to a sturdy structure.

To conclude, while storing a mobility scooter outside is not ideal, with the right precautions, you can minimize potential damage. It's important to regularly inspect and maintain your scooter to ensure its safety and durability.
