The majority of Market Mobility prices include delivery charges but do not include VAT (unless otherwise clearly stated). To qualify for VAT exemption you must ensure the VAT Exempt check boxes are ticked, state the precise medical condition, and meet the criteria at the time you place your order. Assuming you meet this criteria, VAT will not be added unless a particular product has compulsory VAT. Orders which are received without ticked exemption will incur the VAT charge, which will be highlighted clearly to you through our shopping calculator. Should you have any queries please contact us on 01787 827474 or 07940 280888 or email market.mobility@live.co.uk and a member of staff will gladly advise you.

Completed VAT Exemption Declarations by customers are accepted as prima facie evidence by the Company that a valid medical condition exists for exemption under The VAT Act, and no VAT will be charged on the goods purchased.
If, at a later date, HMRC disputes the validity of the medical condition, you will be liable to pay the appropriate VAT that should have been applied.
Under these circumstances, Market Mobility reserves the right to demand that you pay the VAT amount that is due.

Batteries:
If you detect a problem regarding the loss of performance of your scooter, in the first instance it will be necessary for you to have the batteries drop tested. This can be carried out by a mobility shop, a garage, or Halfords. A copy of the drop test will need to be either emailed or posted to Market Mobility and, if the batteries are found to be faulty, we will replace them under warranty. Please be advised that Market Mobility cannot take responsibility for the day to day maintenance of customers scooters and it is recommended that scooters/power chairs and rise recliners are serviced once a year.

In addition, parts which are subjected to normal wear and tear, accidental damage, neglect or misuse are excluded from the manufacturers warranty. Normal wear and tear includes tyres, chassis covers, bulbs and seat coverings. Guarantees are non-transferrable.
Failure to maintain the brushes in the motor could void the scooter or power chair warranty. These should be inspected every six months or sooner if your scooter is not operating smoothly. Any inspection or maintenance should be carried out by an engineer.
Controllers should be kept clean and protected from water and rain.
Market Mobility is unable to accept responsibility in the following cases:-
.If a scooter, power chair or rise recliner is not maintained as per the manufacturers guidelines laid out in the user manual.
.Failure to use the manufacturers parts.
If any alterations or amendments have been carried out on the product.
To ensure that batteries are kept in best condition please read our guide below:-

When you first install your new battery, place it on charge for at least 24 hours. If your vehicle is to be stored for any length of time, firstly charge fully, then disconnect the battery.
Battery charging technology has changed considerably over recent years. Mobility scooter batteries (especially gel/sealed batteries) now offer more power for their size and provide longer performance. Charge your batteries after each and every use no matter how short the distance travelled. Always fully charge your batteries, never part charge sealed lead acid or AGM mobility scooter batteries.
Always use the correct charging system for the batteries. Never use car chargers on gel batteries. Never completely discharge your battery.

Warning! Batteries can be hazardous. All batteries – wet, sealed and gel units, contain lead and sulphuric acid, both are highly toxic and sulphuric acid is highly corrosive.
Battery Charging
Here are some simple rules for proper battery charging:-
Use the manufacturer’s automatic charger for all routine charging. Leave the automatic charger turned on whenever possible, you cannot over-charge a battery when using automatic 3 stage chargers (the one supplied with your product).
Never run batteries completely flat.
With smaller travel scooters fully charge after each use.

We stock a range of mobility scooter battery chargers suitable for most makes of mobility scooters from 2amp/hour upwards to 8amp/hour. All of these chargers are fitted with the industry standard round 3 pin plug unless requested otherwise.

Battery Life
Your battery will wear out with age or frequency of use. As the battery gets older your mobility scooter will travel more slowly or for shorter distances.
If you use your mobility scooter very regularly then the battery will obviously wear out faster.

Distance
The distance you can expect from fully charged batteries will be greatly influenced by weight, terrain and the ambient temperature.

How Often Should You Charge?
Daily users – charge daily after use. Your scooter will then be ready each morning to give you a full days service.
If you use your scooter infrequently (once a week or less), charge the batteries once a week for 12 to 14 hours.
Smaller travel scooters batteries should be fully charged after each use.
Remember to always remove the key from your scooter so it is not accidentally left activated.

Battery Storage
Store batteries fully charged. Check once a month and recharge as needed. Wet batteries can hold their charge for up to three months, sealed models six to twelve months. Remember, if storing your chair/scooter/rise recliner for longer than a few weeks, it’s best to charge the batteries and then disconnect them.
Undercharging
A battery operated with insufficient charge over a long period of time may develop sulphate on the plates. This sulphate is dense and hard, and cannot be readily converted to normal active material again. In this condition the battery is unable to deliver its full power.
