First of all, keep your scooter locked when not in use – even when it’s in your own home- with a quality bicycle U-lock or chain. The majority of mobility scooter thefts in the UK are from their owner’s home.

You can also immobilise your scooter by removing the spark plug or HP cap.

Finally, you can also deter thieves by having your mobility scooter microchipped and displaying a sticker on your scooter warning thieves that it’s tagged.
