We have the biggest knee scooter store in Utah. We see people injured and recovering from orthopedic issues all day long. Because of our experience, we would never buy a scooter online. Why?
Pros of Buying Online
Admittedly, there are some circumstances where you can save some money buying a knee scooter online. If you know exactly what you’re looking for, and you have time to plan for exactly when you’ll need the scooter you may consider this option. If you know you’ll need the scooter for more than a few months you may save a little by buying.
Cons of Buying Online
But there are some obvious disadvantages to buying online:
First off, renting is almost always better than buying a knee scooter. Chances are you’re going to spend less by renting.
Secondly, renting prevents the need for reselling the model that you’ve bought, saving you time and energy.
Work with a Knee Scooter Specialist, rather than Buying Online
When people are renting scooters, they are often unfamiliar with the factors that should be considered? Is this a scooter that fits your height, your weight, and your usage needs? We are trained to ask the right questions to help you find what you need.
Adjust for Size
We can’t understate the importance of adjusting the seat and the handlebars to fit you correctly. If you’ve never done this before, you could run around town on an improperly-sized model of a scooter and end up with all sorts of additional injuries after a few weeks of use.
Don’t Waste Time Making a Bad Buying Decision
The worst thing you can do is buy a scooter online that doesn’t quite work. Then you’ve wasted your money, and you still need to find a model of scooter that will support you during your recovery. We’ll help you find what you need today.
Knee scooter usage is usually time sensitive. Sometimes, in the case of injuries, the need is unexpected and immediate. You don’t have time to wait for a knee scooter from who-knows-where to be delivered. Even if you find a great deal, it’s just not worth the hassle and risk.
You want to stay off your foot when you’re recovering an orthopedic injury. You want to rest. And you need a scooter for a specific period of time.
You may think you can survive for a few days on crutches, but you’ll quickly learn that crutches are no fun.
Safety of Assembly
The Knee Scooter Store is a sister company to a bicycle store. That means that a trained bike mechanic assembles the knee scooter that you rent from us. We are aware that these scooters need to provide more safety, not more risk to your health. We assemble them to the highest technical standards. When you buy online, you’re often responsible for assembling your knee scooter. Unless you have a lot of technical experience at mechanics, you’re going to risk assembling your scooter incorrectly, increasing the risk of malfunction and injury.
