Quingo and the 5-wheel advantage

With three and four-wheel mobility scooters readily available, we’re often asked; why the fifth wheel?

Quingo scooters were developed to fix some of the inherent problems associated with three and four-wheel mobility scooters.

Three-wheel scooters are great if you don’t have much space or if you regularly use your scooter to get around tight corners, perhaps when you’re visiting the shops. However, if you don’t have a good sense of balance or your weight isn’t evenly distributed, these scooters can easily become unstable.

Four-wheel mobility scooters are more stable than three-wheel scooters and can cope better with uneven ground. However, they can be heavy and difficult to steer, and they may not be able to negotiate such tight corners. You may also encounter posture issues as your feet are either forced over the front wheels or pushed back behind them.

Quingo Five-wheel mobility scooters have the advantage of a tight turning circle, giving it lots of manoeuvrability like a three-wheel scooter but with far greater stability. The tri-wheel steering configuration and Quingo’s adaptive floating footplates also mean that each leg can be individually adjusted to ensure your hips, legs and feet can be precisely where they should be for best posture.

At Quingo, we know that mobility problems are as individual as you are and that’s why each of our customers receives a personal visit from a member of our staff to make sure your scooter is just right for your needs and that you are able to use it safely.

I got chills...

We’re feeling the winter chill here at Quingo and to make sure all our customers are up to date on scooter care, we wanted to share a few more of our top tips on how to keep your scooter at its peak this season.

Did you know the colder weather can shorten your scooter’s range?

Top tip 1: Make sure you top up your scooter’s batteries after every use to maximise the charge and keep your range as high as possible. 

Top tip 2: Keep your Quingo inside or under a cover. This will make sure Jack Frost doesn’t get to your scooter and shorten your range when it’s not in use. 

Top tip 3: Remember to check your scooter’s tyre pressure regularly. Soft tyres will decrease your range and wear out your all-important grip! 

For any help or advice on how to keep your Quingo scooter in prime condition this winter, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Mem hits the jackpot with his Quingo Classic

We’re always striving to make your Quingo mobility experience as straightforward, friendly and professional as possible. 

When for example, a customer takes delivery of their Quingo, a member of our team is on hand to make sure it’s set up exactly how they need it. We contact each and every customer once they’ve had a chance to experience their scooter, to make sure they are happy with every aspect and to see how they enjoyed dealing with our staff. We also consistently review this data and the results speak for themselves! 

While we hear every day how pleased customers are with their Quingos and with our service, occasionally we get a reminder that the scooters themselves are not the real story: it’s the power they have to transform people’s lives. 

Mem was delighted to take his first outing in his Quingo Classic, which he received after being awarded one of the first lottery grants through Quingo dealer Mobility Scooters in Dunedin. He tells us he’s thrilled with the scooter, and even on his very first outing, he met friends he hasn’t seen in years. 

He says it’s already changed his life. Thank you for sharing your story, Mem, and best wishes from everyone at Quingo.

"A great asset to your company"

Last week we received a lovely letter from Mrs J Eaton of Birmingham who recently got in touch with Quingo customer services. We wanted to take a few minutes to thank all our staff for continuing to provide the best possible service when dealing with all queries and to Mrs Eaton for her wonderful feedback: it was too good to keep to ourselves! 

Thank you once again to all of our customers who continue to take the time to send us feedback. We are committed to providing great service time after time and it’s great to know that the continued efforts of everyone at Quingo make for more happy customers.

All the leaves are brown

With autumn well and truly here, we wanted to take a few moments to share our top three autumn tips on scooter care to make sure your Quingo stays in optimum condition this season.

Top tip 1: 
Keep your Quingo warm and dry. Cover your Quingo or keep it inside when not in use to make sure the batteries stay charged and range remains at its best. 

Top tip 2: 
Be prepared for the blustery weather. Keep a jacket or scooter mac in your basket when out and about to make sure the change in seasons doesn’t catch you off guard. And our favourite… 

Top tip 3: 
Try to avoid driving over fallen leaves when you can. There can be objects and thorns hiding in there that could puncture your tyres! 

From covers to basket liners, we have a number of accessories available to help keep your scooter in tip-top condition this autumn. If there is anything we can do to help, feel free to give us a call.

5 wheel Quingo mobility scooter debuts in ITV’s Emmerdale

Emmerdale’s Sandy Thomas (played by Freddie Jones) has this week acquired a 5 Wheel Quingo Vitess mobility scooter – which will be a lifeline for Sandy’s character. As for all Quingo users, the scooter will be a welcome and safe means of remaining independent for Sandy, allowing him to stay involved with all the social goings on in the village.

Emmerdale has the scooter on permanent loan from Forever Active, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Quingo mobility scooters. Emmerdale contacted Forever Active directly and Group Marketing Manager Paul Benzie met props manager David Cowan, the Directors of the show and actor Freddie Jones on-set to help select the right scooter for the character. The Quingo Vitess, which is an 8mph, long range model was a great fit that can easily cope with the rugged terrain of the Dales as well as being nimble enough for the village stores.

Mark Nicholls, Managing Director at Forever Active, says: “A Quingo scooter is perfect for a character like Sandy – Becoming less mobile doesn’t mean you need to lose your independence and a Quingo can safely help you to get around, keep up with friends and family and remain part of the community – important in a small, close-knit town like Emmerdale.
To find out more about the Quingo Vitess in the UK call free on 0800 085 7555 and for those who missed the debut, viewers can keep up to date at or watch it on ITV on week day evenings at 7pm.

Young mum regains her independence thanks to Quingo

Sarah Pile was coping well with her MS – until she had her daughter Emily two years ago. Since the pregnancy, Sarah’s condition worsened and her independence diminished. She became wheelchair-bound and increasingly reliant on the help of carers.

But last Monday, Forever Active delivered a new 5 wheel Quingo Plus with a rain canopy to Sarah, on permanent long-term loan. The gift was the result of a campaign by her Multiple Sclerosis Centre – the Kent MS Therapy Centre – which asked Forever Active on her behalf.

“It’s been a complete godsend – I can’t thank Quingo enough,” says Sarah. “Scooters are expensive and we couldn’t afford one, but with my daughter just two years old, I was missing out on the important things and couldn’t even take her to nursery. All I had was a small lightweight scooter which couldn’t deal with the countryside roads in my village, or go out in the rain.”

Sarah says the new Quingo has changed everything: “I’ve only just turned 40, and before having Emily I could get around with sticks and even drive. Losing my independence was one of the hardest things to deal with. I need help in so many areas of my life now – but when I’m in the Quingo, I feel independent again. It’s so nice to be able to take her to school and to get out and talk to people again.

“My daughter loves it too – now I can take her to nursery, and she thinks it’s the same as her toy car. When she plays in the garden in her car now, she says: “Mummy, look, I’m in your car!”

Sarah found the Quingo perfect for her – as she’s quite tall, she was surprised at the leg room – and very pleasantly surprised by the design: “I couldn’t believe how stylish it was. And the seat is so comfortable and can be adjusted. I’m quite a tall person too and there’s so much room for me to put my legs out on the footplate. I didn’t feel hunched up at all. It’s so comfortable, which is important when you’re going to be in something for a long time.”

“Really, it’s given me my independence back. I can’t thank Quingo enough.”

Good-looking get-abouts: excerpt from The Daily Mail, 20.09.12

Mobility Scooters are turning into good-lookers, too, with cool new models inspired by car and motor scooter styling. Most models have four wheels for stability and some lightweight types fold easily into the boot of a car, or can be trollied along like a suitcase when travelling. 

There are also innovative new five-wheel models, which offer extra stability and agility. With these, the position of the adjustable seat and footrests allow you to maintain a more comfortable posture and optimum centre of gravity. And the five wheels make kerb climbing easier, as the outside front wheels stabilise while the large centre wheel gently raises or lowers the vehicle safely. Leading companies will now offer full guidance, training and advice before and after purchase, so that rookie scooter owners can enjoy their newfound freedom, safely and with a good understanding of highway laws.

Comfort is king, and Quingo holds the crown!

Quingo logo
Mobility Scooters can look like cumbersome things to get on. Yet when they exist to aid mobility, why shouldn’t they be easily accessible? Quingo Scooters are designed with comfort and accessibility at the forefront. 

Backed by the Davis Associates Anthropometic/Posture review, Quingo Scooters are tailored around you, adjusted and set correctly for every user. The Vitess and the Toura further play on this theme of ultimate comfort, offering a seat slide feature which allows even more access to those with stiff joints or limited leg movement.

Keep the blood flowing, too. No one likes pins and needles, and Quingo scooters come with foot-plates that can be pushed up and down – offering a gentle massage for your muscles and keeping the circulation going.

If you keep your arms on the armrests while driving, there’s no chance of added pressure on your legs and back, and that’s because every scooter comes perfectly adjusted to fit you. Not only that, Quingo offers superior stability and smoother ride with five wheels on the ground. Two independent suspension systems can be adjusted with the Quingo Vitness and Toura, making a bumpy ride just that bit more relaxed.

Just one last jewel for our crown – did you know Quingo scooters have a staggering 80% more foot room than on a vehicle of comparable length?

You can’t beat comfort, and you can’t beat Quingo.

Quingo Top Ten Air Travel Tips

Quingo Top Tips: Air Travel

Taking your Quingo on a flight, through an airport and enjoying the Quingo advantage at your destination need not be as daunting as you think. This is the first in a series of postings that will help you get the most out of your Quingo. These simple steps will help you prepare your Quingo for the trip, provide guidance on safe transportation and advice for when you are there. 

1. Remove all items from the basket or lockable boxes.
2. Make sure you leave the vehicle with the freewheel lever in the braked or normal position.
3. Always take a spare key with you as it could be mislaid when the vehicle is being placed in the hold.
4. Fix a label to the ignition key and write on the label 'Remove key for flight and attach key to the handle bars'.
5. Make sure the airline staff understand how to fold down the scooter for transport and the location of the freewheel device.
6. All original and authorised replacement batteries for the Quingo range are flight safe. Not all batteries are.
If you have replaced your batteries with an alternate supplier, seek guarantees with that supplier they are flight safe.
7. Don’t forget your battery charger and a suitable plug for the country you are visiting.
8. Check the local laws for driving your vehicle. They are different for each country.
9. If your scooter can be disassembled do not take it apart. Keep the vehicle in one piece.
10. Make sure your vehicle is in fully charged when traveling.

"Your after sales service has been second to none"

Mr.Cleveland kindly took some time to write to us about his new Quingo. We'd like to say a big thank you to Mr.Cleveland and to all of our staff for continuing to provide great service. 

Dear Mr Nicholls

Further to meeting you at East of England Mobility Show Peterborough I would like to thank you very much for the delivery of the above as I stated I have been very pleased with my QuingoAir scooter and your after sales service has been second to none.

It will make an immense difference not having to take the scooter out of my boot every time I charge the batteries up especially knowing that I need to use it frequently.

If anybody asks me about the Quingo I certainly tell them I would definitely recommend to have one.

Once again thanks very much and look forward to many more years with my Quingo.

Kind Regards

Tony Cleveland

Should mobility scooters drive on the pavements or on the road?

In the UK, the Department of Transport recognises two types of mobility scooter: Class 2 and Class 3. Class 2 scooters have a maximum speed of 4mph and are ideal for pedestrian areas and footpaths. If you want to drive on the road, you will need a Class 3 scooter which has a faster top speed and is specially equipped for road use. Class 3 scooters come with a speed limiter which you must use when the scooter is on the pavement or in a pedestrian area. 

While there is no formal driving test or licensing system for mobility scooters, the Department for Transport recommends that drivers of Class 3 scooters understand the Highway Code and have good enough eyesight to read a number plate at 12.3 metres (40 feet). Quingo also recommends that if you are not used to using the road, a Class 2 scooter may be more suitable.

Quingo takes the safety of customers and all other road users extremely seriously. We insist that everyone who buys a Quingo scooter has first taken and passed a full safety assessment to ensure they have the right scooter for their needs and are able to drive and manoeuvre it safely and with confidence. Training is an essential part of the process.

26 June 2012

Do I need to be able to drive to get a scooter?

Mobility scooters are designed to allow people with limited mobility to easily get from place to place. Unlike cars or other vehicles, there is no legal requirement to pass a driving test or have a driving license.

The Quingo team takes care to ensure that customers get the right scooter for their needs, so all of our customers sit an initial safety assessment to ensure they are confident with the scooter and can operate it safely. If you have never driven before, we will normally recommend a Class 2 scooter for use on pavements and pedestrian areas. Experienced drivers who are confident using the roads may opt for a Class 3 scooter, which has a higher top speed and is specially designed for use on the road as well as pavements.

Office star, Julie Fernandez visits Quingo at the Mobility Roadshow

Mark Nicholls talks through the New Quingo 5 Wheel Scooter range with Julie Fernandez who amongst other things starred in Ricky Gervaise's hit comedy 'The Office'.  

Julie officially declared the 3 day event at the Peterborough Arena, East of England Showground open yesterday.

As a campaigner, Julie has called for improved design and technological investment in products that enable people with disabilities - as well as those who become less able with advancing years – to remain independently mobile for as long as possible.

She said: “Anyone like me who needs help to be more mobile will find something at this event that can make a difference to their lives."

The Mobility Roadshow runs until Saturday, June 23 2012 and is the UK’s original and largest consumer mobility and independent living event.

Around 10,000 visitors are expected from across the UK to view the latest products. For more information about the event visit

Come and see the New Quingo Toura and the Quingo Compact at the Mobility Roadshow

We are proud to introduce the latest additions to the Quingo range: the Quingo Toura and the Quingo Sport. 

Ideal for road or pavement use, the stylish new flagship Toura model is the most powerful, comfortable and dependable scooter yet. With larger diameter wheels, long lasting batteries and and double padded seat for exceptional comfort.

With its petite frame, the lightweight Quingo Compact is the baby of the Quingo family. Perfect for navigating small spaces, the Compact is ideal for indoor or outdoor use. Like its big brothers, the Compact has the comfort and stability you’d expect from a 5 wheel Quingo scooter, while its ingenious design allows it to fit into most small hatchbacks.

We will be at the Mobility Roadshow this week from 21st – 23rd June 2012 at the Peterborough Arena. We’ll have our full range of mobility scooters at the show, including the Toura and Compact. If you’re visiting the show, please stop by stand C15 and say hello.

Mobility scooters in the news: Our view

With a number of high profile media commentators discussing potential regulation of mobility scooters, we feel it is important to note our views and observations on the issue. 

Quingo scooters are medical devices which have been designed specifically to help people who have limited mobility. Our customers frequently tell us how owning a Quingo scooter has changed their lives, giving them the freedom and independence to do things that many of us take for granted. It is illegal for someone without a disability to use a mobility scooter. Doing so could be dangerous, inappropriate and upsetting for people who use a scooter in their daily lives. 

The Department of Transport already has a code of practice for the supply of mobility vehicles, with a Class 2 and 3 system in place. Class 3 scooters are equipped to travel at higher speeds than Class 2 scooters and may travel on the road. We believe that any reputable dealer or supplier should carry out assessments at their customers’ homes to ensure that they are safe and suitable to use the product. In our opinion, restricting suppliers’ ability to sell mobility devices over the internet without a thorough assessment taking place would ensure that scooters are supplied safely for the benefit of scooter owners and other road and pavement users.

The Expo hosted over 100 stands and ran over the 9th and 10th March 2012 at the ASB Show grounds in Greenlane, Auckland.

This was the first official event for the Quingo range in the southern hemisphere and the first time potential users had the chance to learn of Quingos’ unique 5 wheel feature set. “We received great feedback regarding our product and the point of difference it offered as the World’s first 5 wheel mobility scooter.” explained Mark Wilkie. “A great start to building awareness here in NZ and something we would certainly like to be involved with again in the future. Well done to the organisers!”

‘The Big Event NZ’ has added to the growing number of international events that Quingo customers are able to enjoy.
