Recently purchased 2 lupin scooters for husband and dad whom both have mobility issues. Since purchase we have all been out and about at the seafront promenade several times a week. It's lovely to see them enjoying and I can easily pack them both in the boot of the car and assemble in seconds. Fantastic definitely recommend
What a brilliant review and the image too is great. We are so pleased to hear your feedback and do encourage you to send more lovely photos in soon

That is fantastic! It is so nice to hear that you enjoy our product. Please do send images in as we would love to see them!
Our destination was Cape Town, South Africa where our Son and his family reside.
Departing from Heathrow where we left our car in the official Valet Parking at terminal 3, the Lupin was immediately put to use in transferring me from parking to check-in desk. From there to a lounge/departure gate we had booked an assistance wheelchair but we were given the choice of retaining the scooter for the whole time up to the departure gate where it would be taken from us and stowed in the aircraft hold. We took this option which proved very convenient.
On arrival at the departure gate we removed the flight-legal battery for hand-carrying as per the flight regulations and collapsed the scooter securing it with the velcro strap supplied. This enabled the ground crew to manoeuvre it like a suitcase with wheels.
On completion of the flight the scooter was awaiting us at the aircraft door where we quickly reconfigured it to enable me to use it immediately throughout the airport and up to our onward transport. The ease of collapsing the scooter for stowage and then re-configuring for use was a feature greatly appreciated by those having to carry out this task.
During our time in Cape Town and surrounding areas the Lupin performed brilliantly, coping with varying surfaces and many inclines that I would not necessarily have been as confident of attempting with other makes of disability scooters. Similarly the manoeuvrability in shopping malls and supermarkets etc was superb.
There did not appear to be as many disability scooters in South Africa as the UK and the Lupin drew a surprising amount of complementary remarks wherever we went.
Since returning from holiday, this has now been repeated in the UK with several requests for information as to where we obtained it. I was delighted to be able provide the relevant contact details.
In conclusion I would highly recommend this scooter to anyone needing to get from A to B with acceptable comfort and great practicality, particularly in respect of weight and ease of transportation.
The scooter is perfect. My husband loves it and he now has some independence back in his life. Thank you so much for all your help.
Amazing! Really excellent service in all ways. My Lupin was delivered on the day I requested with accurate times given by the courier. During the trial period, all my phone calls were answered immediately and all questions more than satisfactorily answered. I loved Lupin, but unfortunately it was too heavy for us to lift and manoeuvre into the car and so it was returned without hassle. My money was refunded very promptly. Just a couple of things, we did find it difficult to lift out of and back into the box and there is no way of locking it whilst in shops.
Thank you Betty and Bertie.
