Why Rent a Portable Vs. a Deluxe Scooter When Visiting Disneyland or the Anaheim Resort Area.

As the General Manager of Soaring Scooters I’m consistently asked, “what is better, the Portable scooter or the Deluxe Scooter?” I’m going to do a full breakdown of all the differences. Allowing all our customers who like to do their on diligence, by researching the answers to all their impending queries so that they will be able to make an educated choice on your own.

Let’s Begin with Portable or Travel Size Scooters.

As in the name, the portable scooters are just that, portable! Most travel sized scooters break down between 4-6 parts so that they can easily be put in a trunk or in the back of the SUV.  These scooters are compact, making them perfect if you plan on visiting more than just Disneyland, such as Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, the beach or any other Southern California attraction. Most Portable scooters have a short mile range between 12-14 miles and weigh 100lbs., with the heaviest part being around 40 lbs. Normally they have halfback seats with adjustable steering columns. The battery lives will last 8-9 hours, depending on your mileage. We always suggest plugging these in about halfway through your day at Disneyland or other activity for an hour or so, extending your time and mileage for the day.

When Luxury Meets Portablility

Please note, I did mention the word most this is because starting in August, Soaring Scooters will be introducing a new Luxury Deluxe Portable scooter called Buzzaround LX. This luxury travel scooter comes complete with the comfort of a full-size deluxe unit but with the portability of a travel scooter. The Buzzaround LX is perfect for almost any situation and comes standard with a massive 375 lbs. weight capacity, rear suspension, Captains seat and up to 18 miles on a single charge that can last as long as 14 hours. The Buzzaround LX possesses one of the largest weight capacity in the industry for any travel scooter, but still offers the comfort and accommodations of a full-size unit, it also includes a standard USB charging port conveniently located on the tiller. This allows you to charge your electronics on the go while still utilizing the Ultrabrite LED head and taillights and the “Infinite” adjustable tiller. The Buzzaround LX perfectly combines the convenience of a travel scooter with the durability and comfort of a full-size unit.

Soaring Scooters has a Scooter for Everyone and Their Needs

We here at Soaring Scooters have three different size deluxe, full size, non-portable scooters. What does that mean. Full size non-portable means that these scooters cannot be broken down and put in the Trunk or SUV unless you have a special scooter hitch for your car. Deluxe scooters have full Captains seats, which are easily adjustable, rear view mirrors, with 18+ miles that can last 14-16 hours on a single charge. Deluxe scooters are perfect for taller customers that have, not only difficulties walking but have hip, back or leg injuries that require the ability to stretch out their legs and lean the seats back into a lying position. Soaring Scooters carries deluxe scooters that have weight capacities from 350lbs to 500lbs. They are great for being able to go to the park all day and back to your hotel with out the need to recharge half way. Our Panther is the only deluxe scooter in our fleet that has the added bonus of a  USB charging port and rear shocks giving it a smooth ride all day long.  

As General Manager I hope this clears up the difference while helping you decide what is best for the person needing a scooter, however if you are still not completely clear don’t hesitate to call our 24/7 customer service hotline and speak to one of our mobility scooter experts.

Coming This Holiday Season Hi-tech Meets Mobility Scooters.

I’ve been told so many stories about just how difficult it can be to find a place to charge a phone at a the Disneyland theme parks. Either, the outlets are turned off or they are in use with a line of people waiting for their turn.  I recall one instance where a grandmother, not particularly technologically savvy, feeling very frustrated as she spent most of the day by herself, as family members searched for a station to recharge their phones. With limited accessibility to charging lockers, this grandmother waited several hours for the family to charge their mobile devices. On the brighter side, the grandmother joked with me that she was happy to be sitting in her rented Prowler Mobility Scooter instead of the floor.

Well, do we have good news this holiday season Soaring Scooters has required a new tech savvy heavy-duty mobility scooter, called The Panther.

The Panther mobility scooter offers many included features such as a 425lb weight capacity and is equipped with captains chair for comfort. Unlike our other rental units The Panther has the ability to drive on rougher terrains like the beach areas boardwalks. It has 14″ allow wheels, front and rear suspension, padded armrests and pneumatic tires to provide a smooth and comfortable ride.  The Panther can each up to 8 mph, which will take you up to 25 miles per charge. The easy-to-operate Panther has a one-touch tiller adjustment to let you select the ideal driving position. All this, plus an USB Port for charging your mobile devices.

One Person’s Experience at Disneyland with a Scooter Rental

So recently I had a client tell me about her first experience with a scooter rental at Disneyland and the difference it made for her and her family. The story began with her history before she ever rented a scooter. For years the Daniels family have been going to Disneyland for 3 days in December. Mrs. Daniels would push her body all day at the parks while trying to keep up with her family. Due to this body exhausting first day her last days of their family trip, would be spent sitting at the hotel, while the family went on without her. Last year on her family’s annual trip to Disneyland, her son decided to rent an electric scooter for her. What a difference, she and the family zipped around the parks all three days, she got to see her grandchildren smiling the whole trip.

With the success of their last trip this year her family decided to extend their annual trip and visit not just Disneyland but the surrounding amusement parks, Knott’s’ berry farm as well as Universal Studios. Mrs. Daniels called around; she was concerned about renting a scooter outside of Disneyland. She voiced all her concerns about the trip in addition to what she liked and didn’t like about the scooter they rented the pervious year at Disneyland. Once I heard the plans I knew they needed a portable scooter that could travel with them.  I suggested the Phoenix HD 4 wheel. The Phoenix is a portable chair that fit right into their rental car’s trunk.  We delivered the scooter to them at their first hotel in the Disneyland area and picked the scooter up at their final hotel destination in Universal Studio. Mrs. Daniels and the family kept saying how having the portable rental scooter eased one of their major anxieties helping make their visit to southern California one of best family trips in years.
