    Hello @yeifival   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for your post and for joining. Sorry what has happened. Condolences to the family and to you.

    I would like to add we can not advertise on the forum your Fathers Scooter one of the rules I am afraid.

    Giving out personal details.  If you have to.  Mobile numbers and Emails.

    What I would suggest is find a store .  That deals in Mobility Scooters.  Speak to them .

    Should be one on line.  In your area.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care

    Hi @yeifival
    Welcome to the community! Is it from the NHS or a mobility shop?

    Hi @yeifival
    Im so sorry for your loss and how kind of you to want to pass on his scooter, here is a bit of information about second hand equipment:

    We can now accept donations of second-hand disability equipment within a 30-mile radius of Milton Keynes, covering Dunstable, Northampton, Bedford and Buckingham. Call free on 0800 011 3005 for details. We can't take toileting and bathing items such as hoists that we cannot quality check.

    If you have items in good working order that you no longer need outside our collection area, here's how to make sure your equipment continues to benefit disabled people.
