Best Mobility Scooter Shed Storage Shelter

Best Mobility Scooter Storage Shed List

Here are the best options for a mobility scooter shed or storage shelter, at a glance.

As you can see, 2 options are quite permanent installations, and 2 options are relatively or entirely movable.

Movable Mobility Scooter Garage/Shelters

Folding Storage Shelter

By far the easiest installation. It doesn’t take long at all, and doesn’t need 2-3 people, as some other options do.

A folding storage shelter like this one is typically the lowest priced option.

The most hassle-free for getting your mobility scooter in and out. You just pull back the cover and go. It’s much easier than the flimsy mobility scooter covers which are a bit of a faff!

The least secure option (though there is a mechanism allowing you to use a padlock).

Portable Shed/Garage

Much easier to install than the permanent mobility scooter storage shelters.

More pleasing to the eye than the folding storage shelter.

Simple installation, even older people with mobility problems have successfully done so.

Lower cost than the sheds, and can be as little as half, depending on the size you need.

As you can imagine, it’s less secure than the metal and wooden permanent storage sheds.

Though it’s not bad to look at, it’s still not as nice as the permanent shelters.

Permanent Mobility Scooter Sheds

Here are the options that are assembled in a permanent manner with nails and screws, are heavier and so would not be easy to move if you decided to do so. That’s why describe them as “permanent”, of course it’s not literally the case; they could be disassembled.

Wooden Storage Shed

This shed is made specifically for mobility scooters.

Takes up only as much space as needed – flat roof is ideal for mobility scooters.

More secure – shed can be locked with two tower bolts.

As a solid, permanent structure, this mobility scooter shed likely to last a long time.

The nicest looking solution for mobility scooter outdoor storage.

The most expensive option.

Installation is not extremely difficult but could require 1-2 fit and able people to do it

Metal Storage Shed

It’s the highest rated shed on the market in the UK – the best combination of quality, ease of installation and relatively low price.

This can be very secure, with strong, sturdy panels and doors which can be padlocked.

There’s easily enough space inside for large mobility scooters and any other garden materials, tools etc. you may want in your shed.

Unlike a wooden shed, this metal mobility scooter shed doesn’t need to be painted or have Ronseal put on it once per year.

There’s no base/floor to the shed, so if you want one you’ll need to create a base beforehand.

This is one of the easiest to install sheds on the market, but it still requires 2 or ideally 3 people to do so comfortably.

Which mobility scooter storage shelter or shed should I get?

Here are a few of the aspects you should consider when deciding which one is best for you.

How important is it to easily take your mobility scooter to and from the storage shed or shelter?

So, for example, if you come and go many times a day, always zipping in and out to the shops on your mobility scooter, consider how easily or otherwise each option is to do that.

The folding storage shelter, for example, would certainly be the easiest.

You just pull the cover up and you’ve got access to your scooter, you can just get on and go.

You don’t even need to bend down, as you can pull it back from the arches. It’s genuinely pretty much effortless to do.

And putting it back is just the same, doing the opposite.

The less convenient option is a permanent shed, which may require unlocking the doors, opening them, manoeuvring your mobility scooter into the shed, then closing the doors and locking them again. Of course, that depends if you have locks or not.

It’s not that putting it in a shed is very difficult, it’s just not quite as effortless as the folding shelter, if you’re going to be coming and going many times in one day on your mobility scooter.

And on that note…

How important is security to you?

Clearly a permanent outside storage shed, with solidly put together walls and roof, and doors with locks or padlocks, will be more secure than a portable or folding garage/shelter.

Think about what level of security you’ll be comfortable with.

This can depend on where your mobility scooter will actually be stored. Is it kept outside in some shared housing area? It it in a front garden in a place where people could potentially see it as they walk by? Or will it be in an alcove or back garden where no-one would know it was there?

Do you stay in a quieter area with very low levels of crime or in a big city with higher crime levels?

Answering these questions will help you decide which mobility scooter shed meets your needs.

Here are some more tips for mobility scooter security.

Will your mobility scooter fit in the mobility scooter garage or shed?

The sheds, garages and shelters on our list on this page are either specifically made for mobility scooters or are a good size to fit them (ie. not too big and not too small).

Whichever one you go for, make sure to check the dimensions, not just the picture!

Pictures online are notorious for looking bigger or smaller than the reality.

In particular, make sure to also check the size of the doors, to make sure there’s comfortable enough room for your size of mobility scooter to fit.

Consider also whether there will be a lip at the bottom when you open the shed door; will it be easy to take it over that?

Consider your scooter type also. A lighter, folding mobility scooter will be easier to move into place. Or is it a larger, Class 3 scooter (maybe a scooter for heavier adults), like the Veleco Faster?. If so, then it’ll be a little more difficult.
