New Moped SAGITTA hitting our shelves – Not literally.

If you are in the market for a luxury scooter, then the moped SAGITTA is going to meet all of your expectations. Not only is it a brand-new vehicle, but it also is very stylish. With dual front wheel technology, it offers the just smoothest riding experience. 

The vehicle will be available in three awesome colours, while, red and black, but it’s not just the colour that is impressive. With a Lithium-Ion battery it is very light, because its total mass doesn’t exceed 16.5 stone!

The moped SAGITTA is very fast, as it can easily reach 28 mph. On top of that, the vehicle has special SPORT mode. Turning it on pumps much more juice into the motor, and it accelerates much more quickly than a regular moped.

MLS dual front wheel system

As mentioned, Moped SAGITTA is a vehicle that follows the new trends from the world of electric scooters. The recently fashionable dual front wheel system offers heightened control over braking, turning and other manoeuvres. This results in much more safety to the driver, more responsibility and reign over the speeding vehicle.

What are notable features of SAGITTA? Not only does it have a 2000W 72 motor, which can tackle any hill, it also has great climbing ability. This results in a very long range and lots of fun when you manage to overcome hills that regular scooters would have trouble with.

Why should you consider moped SAGITTA?

Simple answer really. Since Veleco is our all-time favourite manufacturer, their vehicles have always proved to be both good price and very reliable. We have tested this vehicle, before putting it on sale and can attest that it follows the high and rigorous standard of quality the manufacturer closely guards.

Moped SAGITTA is great for personal purchase or to make a gift off. The selling point is that it can carry two people at the same time since it has additional footrest pegs. An alarm system and a remote are additional bonuses. No wonder the manufacturer has added them as everyone would want to have such a vehicle.

Will insurance cover a mobility scooter?

With recent news, our team has seen it as very important for our next post to answer a question, if insurance will cover a mobility scooter. Just recently a situation in Cornwall has reminded us that sometimes unforeseen accidents or upsetting life events will happen. While we are standing guard to always assist in such cases, it is only proper we would write on this topic to enhance customer awareness.

As electric mobility aids grow more and more popular with each passing day we think it is most important to secure them. That however is not always an option as many places just aren’t yet fit to house them. This changes day by day, but there are still places like shops, museums or other buildings, both public and personal, that don’t allow for easy access. Of course, parking a vehicle doesn’t mean that a disaster is bound to happen, but in rare cases, it might. Those can be however prevented from happening.

Do you need insurance to cover a mobility scooter?

While it is certainly optional, and Velobike as a reseller doesn’t force its customers to buy insurance to cover a mobility scooter, it is always advised to get one. The reason for it is simple as it does cover the user during many unfortunate events that might happen.

The highest benefit the insurance offers is definitely security and safety. When using a class-2 vehicle or class-3 mobility scooter outside the house, the insurance can cover the cost of repairs or mobility scooter theft. Of course, when deciding on an insurer, it is a good idea to study all options available on the market.

Why reading fine print is important

Let’s be realistic, each person has signed at least one document without reading it thoroughly. It is common to happen when we rush and have so many chores to do. Most important to remember is that some companies do not follow a code of ethics. This is why they don’t care about the difficulties that their customer might face. When getting insurance cover for a mobility scooter, it is especially important to study the documents. This is because elders and disabled might be considered by business sharks as easy prey.

At Velobike however, we employ good faith and high ethics. We are always doing our best to assist our customers with an after service and beyond. Not that we didn’t ever have a disappointed customer. Of course with patience and determination, we do our best to warm them up to us again. Sincerity and being willing to help senior and disabled customers are our core values that we never forget. Those are shared by our manufacturer Veleco, who wouldn’t pick us as one of the official resellers without high standards our company employs.

Most desired Veleco mobility scooters 2020

Ever wondered what are the most desired Veleco mobility scooters in the UK and European Union? No secrets between our company and all the awesome customers, so here’s the short summary of our 2020. If you didn’t yet get a chance to grab one of these vehicles, it might be high time to do so.

The year 2020 was certainly eventful for many people, both individuals and businesses. Even companies such as ours faced struggles and difficulties along the way. This however, was no excuse to give up, as we are the ones who provide people with their freedom of movement. Certainly during 2020 this was one of the most desired commodities, as many who relied on public transport didn’t want to use that any more. Mobility scooters, which didn’t require a driving licence, became especially high in demand due to this.  

2020 Ranking of most wanted

We are proud to say that some models in our store certainly exceeded our expectations. With many changes to our online website and focus on providing the best customer service possible, we have noted traffic of an average 36 thousand people every month. This resulted in many sales, in fact so many, we could barely keep up in the high of summer!

Looking at the statistics, we can say that the first place of most wanted Veleco mobility scooters goes to ZT63, which sold over 4000 vehicles in 2020. We were somewhat surprised about it, but if one looks at the awesome Vespa style retro look, it sure makes sense that this is our customer’s favourite choice.

Second place goes to model FASTER, with over 3500 pieces sold. Guess the reliability of four wheels isn’t to be underestimated. The sense of security this model offers to seniors, especially calms all fears.

The third place is a dark horse in the Most Wanted race. CRISTAL certainly isn’t our newest model and we definitely never expected that over 2000 vehicles will reach the houses of our customers. It is a pleasant surprise that this vehicle is still in very high demand by our clientele.

Thinking about those numbers, we are very much pleased, because each of those means that another person out there enjoys the air outdoors. Living in the four walls can be suffocating and make people unhappy. It is heartwarming to know that we have contributed to people’s happiness out there.

Most desired Veleco mobility scooters – is colour important?

We did show statistics of the whole models, but what about colour? It certainly affected our customer’s decision-making.

Between the three ZT63 models, a big dominance of red one could be seen, as it certainly outdistanced other colours 3 to 1.

In the case of FASTER, this was a very tight race between all red and blue, but ultimately, the blue one took the lead.

CRISTAL silver sold strongest, which certainly was a surprise. The precious colour and highly refined must really be an eye-catcher to many customers.

What have we learned from it? That the colour of 2020 for mobility scooters was certainly the red one.

Do you think we should add red CRISTAL to our store? You can subscribe to our Facebook or Twitter and comment on it!

Best mobility scooter that can climb hills

When choosing a mobility scooter that can climb hills, there are numerous questions from our customers. Due to that, we have decided to answer the most important of them, in this short post. Here, you will learn how the maximum possible slope is determined and how important is the power of the motor.

Finding a mobility scooter that can climb hills is pretty easy at our store, but you already know that. As our products were made by manufacturer Veleco, they were thoroughly tested and the specifications were provided to us. However, this might be not enough for customers, so we have performed our own tests as well.

This way, if you decide to pick one of our products in the future, you can be sure that all the data provided in our product pages is accurate and always up to date.

How to determine maximum possible slope

First, you need to consider two main elements that determine the steepness of a slope. Weight is naturally the primary factor, and we mean the combined weight of the scooter and its rider. The secondary factor would be the strength of the motor.

Generally, the size of the battery shouldn’t affect the climbing ability, however you should know that lead-acid batteries weigh much more than lithium-ion ones. Basically, the less weight there is to handle, the less power from the motor is required, which in turn determines the battery drain.

It needs to be said that an accurate calculation of maximum climbing ability is generally impossible. However, all online shops that try to sell a mobility scooter that can climb hills, should provide the lowest possible specs. 

Did you know that the specifications, which you can find under every product on our website, are gathered by us? They were made in uniform and perfect conditions and are provided to all customers before they make a purchase.

Motor for mobility scooter that can climb hills

It might sound simple, that to get the mobility scooter that can climb hills, all you require would be the big motor. That is often a very big mistake though. Too powerful motors would use up battery charge very quickly, even on normal roads. Because of this, what you would want is to have a motor perfect for your vehicle construction and not the strongest possible.

Instead of the big strength, we suggest following the specifications on the websites. If you really need more assurance though, always ask the seller, as they have first time information. Hope this helped, and now you know which factors affect any mobility scooter that can climb hills and its performance.

Mobility Scooter Delivery – What to look out for

One of the most common questions of potential customers is mobility scooter delivery. Many future owners, when browsing the internet look out for secure deals, that won’t add to them any additional costs. No one wants to experience unpleasant surprises after all. How does Velobike handle it? Learn in this post.

From experience with our customers we understand one thing very clearly. Many of them are people who have some years of life experience and would wish for online purchases to be as simple as possible.

As mobility scooter distributors in the UK and a big portion of Europe, we always strive for transparency. Because of that, our customers can easily view our offer and get all the information. If need arises, we clarify any questions by our chat, email and phone. Those of you, who already have made a purchase know well enough, that often it is our customer support which makes the first contact. We believe this is exactly what all customers would like, and it is a badge of high quality for us.

Hidden costs – what to look out for?

Many companies out there, who deal with online sales, sometimes don’t provide all the necessary details. One of the questions about mobility scooter delivery might be related to the shipping price. Did you know that often such costs can reach up to one-fifth of the price of an actual product?

We believe such a situation would result only in customer disappointment and thus, this does not happen when purchasing from us.

Another most crucial information would be VAT Relief, in case of mobility scooter delivery. From our broad experience, many customers can claim this. Any company that deals with customers who can do so, should provide extensive information on the topic.

Last thing, which are worth mentioning here are warranty and returns policy. Always check it, because some items in case of certain products cannot be fixed on warranty. A good example would be lightbulbs or brake pads in pads. Unless it is a mechanical error from day one or broke down in a week from delivery, all parts which deteriorate over time are not eligible for warranty. This is determined by Trade Law.

How Velobike handles mobility scooter delivery?

At Velobike when we perform mobility scooter delivery, we always make sure to have all information in the open. On our website, information about warranty, return policy and even VAT relief are easily accessible to all of our customers.

In numerous places, like the main velobike website, we inform the customers that our mainland deliveries are free in the United Kingdom as well as the European Union countries.

Some customers, who live on islands might worry about additional costs. In our FAQ section, we explain that the cost of the ferry has been unfortunately covered by customers. That is because we would have to pay for a very heavy truck to cross the water twice to deliver the scooter.

Does it mean it is impossible to get one of Veleco scooters to an island? Not at all. We work with our customers and often arrange with them delivery to the nearest port, to avoid additional ferry costs. This way, the customers often arrange local transportation, which will bring them their new scooter over the water. Since our scooters are charged and ready to drive at delivery, it is never a problem to ride them back home.
