Repair shops are around , however they're hard to find and usually cater to the insurance industry, are maker specific, or shade tree (to borrow a phrase from the auto industry). The later could develop into a much needed industry, if the training, tools, and parts were easier to obtain. The jest of this is the owner of a Power Chair, Mobility Scooter, or other mobility device is forced to return to the original seller of the item or attempt to fix it themselves. Usually the seller is hours to days away, and shipping, or a house visit has to be scheduled. This leaves the device owner in the lurch, untill an inspection of the problem can be made, and many times parts ordered. In the case of a house call, a second visit has to be scheduled.

Many times the problems with the powerchair or mobility scooter is power related (battery, charger, or wiring). The owners know this, however they are unable to make the determination as to which. Given just a few hints and a cheap multimeter this problem can be solved and products needed bought locally or ordered on line and sent priority.
