  • Selling a dodgey mobility scooter has to be high on the list of nasty b*****d crimes.

    Good luck with finding someone to fix it. Perhaps try age concern? They might know of reasonable fixers.

  • rashi,as stitch said try e,bay,and from all of us to the low life/watch ur corner,you never can tell what awaits you,ba,,,,,d vermim,glad your wife is ok,your eide is coming up again ,

  • Yes it's on Wednesday and I've been on eBay majority of the adds are in the south

  • Register on Preloved. It's free and items will come up close to home.

  • Yes I been on there not much joy

  • I was lucky a few months ago to buy a virtually brand new scooter from Preloved. £120 !! I did need to buy new batteries as it has been standing for some months. Got them off Ebay for £40.

  • Hi

    Have a look at

    Any automobile electrician , should be able to rectify any faults, most of the parts, are sealed units. Exchange old for new,

    Good luck.


  • Try your local mobility shop, they must have contacts. Any mobility scooter hire.

    If costs of repair works out more expensive than buying a new one or 2nd hand one, well the choice will be yours either way.

    What did you use when you loaned your mobility scooter out?

    Good luck

  • I don't use one I just bought one for the old man his 77 he had seen people on out and about so I bought him . I'm still limping to work another ten years before I retire the repair shops in Preston and Blackburn quoted £600 to repair I can afford £100 at moment because my baby daughter is getting married and fortunately I get to spend my life savings good innit but that's my social culture ,my religion , my daughter I think I will be working an extra life time to recouperate the losses off ! Cheers I can write a biography of my life

  • write it might raise few bucks,and 15 oct,we all want cakes threw cyber space,for eid ul adha is that correct,

  • We are canerverous sect or society I don't mean everybody. The prophet Abraham offered his son as a sacrifice abd god replaced him with a lamb

  • correct,are you sunni ,or shea

  • There was only one isslam. Which our prophet bought he is the last one after Jesus there is no more prophets after Mohammed peace be upon him . The Shia started after the great grandson of our prophet because theory they believe the prophet hood should have been passed down to the grandson they are a funny lot they believe in I having temporary marriages for a few days they call it matuu or matam stick it on YouTube ! Interesting inflicting any kind of harm to your body is forbidden in Islam these shia's when it comes to mohammran which is a month in the Islamic calendar they beat themselves with chains,whips,swords,and slap themselves silly black and blue all the time while beating them selves they repeated pray It wasn't us we didn't murder our prophet and that's the people of Iraq and Iran where Shia's started I don't care or hate anybody of there religious beliefs but we believe there are only 3 true religions 1.jewishism 2 Christianity and of course 3. Ours Islam no prophet will return to earth except for Jesus to claim his flock before the end of the world which will not be in our lifetime it will be after 3500 A.D.
