Busy days ahead for Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol

Busy days ahead for Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol

So, as we head out of the main summer season here on the Costa del Sol, families on their summer holidays return home and kids head back to school, I head into the busiest time of year for me at Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol…..

September, October and November is really when my business explodes!

Busy days ahead for Mobility Abroad Costa del SolIn these months ahead I know I won’t really have much time to stop and reflect on anything, so this morning, as I was driving from Torremolinos to Marbella to deliver a Mini Scooter, I got to thinking about just how lucky I am to be working in this little piece of paradise and how far things have come for me in the last 5 years since moving to Benalmadena.

I moved to Spain in 2013 and took over Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol, which had already been running since 2001. Since then the company has really gone from strength to strength, I like to think this is due to the personal and tailor-made service I aim to offer to all my clients.

As the company has grown the demand for more scooters has obviously increased. So by listening to you, my valuable clients’, I now have a new scooter fleet that has been designed to be more Costa del Sol Pavement friendly and durable.

Busy days ahead for Mobility Abroad Costa del SolI have hand-picked individual components to create a stronger mobility scooter for you to hire. Some of the features these New Popular Scooters offer are….

  • Stronger motor (400 watts) to cope with some of the hills we have here on the Costa del Sol
  • Delta handlebar to make control easier
  • LED lights
  • Higher ground clearance

These mobility scooters arrived at the end of July and I am so excited to see them out and about on the pavements of the Costa del Sol.

Getting to this stage with New scooters was really a dream of mine when starting out, so to see this becoming a reality is so amazing to me. I must admit I am a little bit proud and a huge amount grateful to all the people around me who have helped to make this happen.

I am so happy and lucky to be able to say I love what I do, and I really owe that to my lovely clients. My clients are what make every day different and fun for me, so thank you all.

Costa del Sol Fun Facts

10 Costa del Sol Fun Facts

So, summer is well and truly underway here on the Costa del Sol. The sun is out, the beaches are filling up and of course the one I notice the most, as I am delivering Mobility Scoots to my lovely clients up and down the coast, the roads are getting busier each day!!

The summer is the busiest time of year for the Costa del Sol (although my busiest period personally is from September to November) and this afternoon I was thinking about what makes this part of the world so popular for expats and tourists alike.

It has to be more than just the weather, so I decided to Google some Fun Facts about the Costa del Sol to share with you all, so here is goes….

  1. The Costa del Sol has the best climate in Spain.
    The average temperature throughout the year is 18.5°C.
    There are at least 300 days of sunshine and the winters are the mildest in Europe. There is little rain in winter and when it does rains the skies normally clear quickly afterwards and the sun comes out again.
    Two cities on the Costa del Sol, Marbella and Torrox Costa, have the best microclimates in Europe, with the surrounding mountains protecting these cities from the cold, northerly winds. So winters are mild and summers are cooler than inland Spain.
  2. The Costa del Sol has over 159 kilometres of coastline
    With more than 125 beaches on a coastline that stretches out over 159 kilometres, the beaches on the Costa del Sol are world class. They are clean and have many facilities including bathrooms, beach showers, beach bars/restaurants, play areas, volleyball courts, water sports and more.
    The Costa del Sol also boasts many Blue Flag beaches (The Blue Flag award is a world-renowned eco-label trusted by millions around the globe that represents a commitment to both people and the environment).
  3. The Costa del Sol has more golf courses than anywhere else in Europe
    The Costa del Sol is often called the Costa del Golf for good reason as there are more golf courses in the area than anywhere else in Europe,
    With over 70 beautiful golf courses the Costa del Golf is the top European destination for golf lovers.
  4. Malaga Airport is the 3rd largest airport in Spain
    Malaga Airport is the 3rd largest airport in Spain, after the airports in Madrid, Barcelona. It is also the 4th busiest Spanish airport after Madrid–Barajas, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.
  5. Costa del Sol birth place to Pablo Picasso
    Pablo Picasso was born in the city of Malaga on October 25th, 1881.
    On the 27th October 2003 the King and Queen of Spain inaugurated the Museo Picasso (Picasso Museum) located in the heart of Malaga city. You may also visit the Casa Natal (Birthplace of Picasso) in Malaga City, which has been open to the public since 1988.
  6. The Malaga Fair is the biggest on the Costa del Sol
    Every August Malaga Fair, also known as Feria de Agosto, run for 1 week. It is the largest fair on the Costa del Sol and it takes place in two areas; one during the day is located in the downtown area of Malaga and the night fair takes place at Cortijo de Torres. With an audience of about 2 million visitors, the Malaga Fair is an important event on the Costa del Sol.
  7. Malaga is one of the world’s oldest cities.
    When the city was founded by the Phoenicians in 770 BC, it was known as Malaka.
  8. Malaga has 4th largest economy activity in Spain
    Malaga comes in fourth behind Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia in economy activity in Spain. Not surprisingly the most important economy and business sectors in Malaga are tourism, construction and technology services. Transportation and logistics are also beginning to expand.
  9. Actor Antonio Banderas is from the Costa del Sol
    Actor Antonio Banderas (known for his roles in Desperado, The Mask Of Zorro and Spy Kids, as well as the voice of Puss in Boots in Shrek 2 and sequels) was born in Malaga on August 10th, 1960.
  10. Mobility Aboard Costa del Sol offer a GREAT, personal service.

Mobility Scooter Hire Discounts on the Costa del Sol!!!

Hi Everyone!

Hope the day finds you all well.Chiringuito

I was delivering a mobility scooter for hire to one of my regular clients today in Fuengirola and was a few minutes early, so decided to have a coffee in one of the cafes on the paseo to watch the world go by for a bit. (It’s not all work here y’know!)

I was thinking about the client and how many times they have used my services not only in Fuengirola, but at hotels in Benalmadena and Torremolinos too. They come to coast around 2 or 3 times a year and stay a couple of weeks each time.

This then got me thinking about another client who comes to Torremolinos – Robin. He also uses my services quite a few times a year – thank you Robin – and this year I did him a deal where he booked his mobility hire for 3 separate holidays in advance. As he regularly hires from me for Torremolinos, I gave him a good discount for paying in advance. I was happy and I think he was happy too! (I’m sure you’ll let me know Robin)

Anyway, to cut a long story short, as I was driving to my delivery, I started to go through in my head actually how many regular clients I am lucky to have who use my hire services 2, 3, sometimes even 4 times a year! So as I am approaching my 4th year here on the Costa del Sol (September 4th) I thought I would do something very special for all the clients who use my services time after time. So I came up with this…

 

Huge Discounts For ALL Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol Clients!

 

Pay in advance for your Mobility Scooter Hire and receive a HUGE DISCOUNT!

Normal weekly Hire Price for a medium size scooter at the moment is 70 euro. So… Here’s the deal!

 

Mobility Scooter Hire Option 1. – 12 weeks advance hire packageMobility Abroad Costa del Sol

Pay for 12 weeks Mobility Scooter Hire in advance for just 540 euro… This works out at just 45 euro a week for your mobility scooter…

SAVE 300 EURO!!!

Mobility Scooter Hire Option 2. – 25 weeks advance hire package.

Pay for 20 weeks Mobility Scooter Hire in advance for just 1000 euro…This works out at just 40 euro a week for your mobility scooter…

SAVE 750 EURO!!!

There is no time limit as to when you use the weeks to hire the scooter.

Hire for one week in one month, another two weeks two months later. Save your weeks for the following year/s etc.

Protects you against hire price rises too! So chances are you will save a bit more money. Once you’ve paid for your weeks you can take them anytime you want – Even if it takes 5 years or more!

A couple of “Buts”…

1. I’m sorry, but the weeks can’t be transferred to another person and the package will only apply to one named person.
2. If you are outside the free delivery areas, the delivery charges will still apply.
3. Only applies to a minimum one week booking at a time – Not a day or 2 at a time here and there. If you need it for 10 / 11 / 13 days etc that is not a problem.

Apart from that, that’s it!

It’s just a way of me saying thank you to my regular clients to whom I’d like to give something back!

And if you live on the Costa del Sol for a few months of the year, this could be a great way of being mobile without the need to buy a Mobility scooter and then have to leave it in storage whilst you go back home.

To book your Hire Option, or to ask me any questions regarding the above, just contact me.

I do hope you like what I have put together for you. It actually feels to me like a proper sale with big discounts, as opposed to the “Sales” where you get a measly 5% or 10% of the ticket price!

So that’s it from me for now. I feel a “cheeky little red” is about to be opened once I finish typing!

All the best to you…

Tony.

Mobility Abroad Costa del Sol

Which Mobility Scooter is best to hire for my holiday on the Costa del Sol. Torremolinos, Benalamadena, Fuengirola, Marbella.

Hi Everyone.
Hope you are all well!
Having just started to use this thing called «Blogging», I feel like a little schoolboy again writing the essay «What I did in the Summer Holidays» – not knowing where to start – on returning back to school! (a while ago!) I really want to help people either on holiday or who live here on the coast with their mobility needs. So what I thought I would do is write a few words from the beginning for those who have never used mobility scooters before, and are thinking about if it would help them to enjoy their holiday a little more.

Having been in the industry for many years now, the one thing that happens 95% of the time is pride stops people from getting on the scooter for the first time.

«You’ll never get me on one of those things!!!»

But within 30 minutes of being on a scooter and getting to grips with the easy controls, the transformation in the person is absolutely wonderful. They realise that they can get to most places that any pedestrian can get to, and they can do so with so much ease and avoid some, or most of their pain or breathlessness. I’m not going to mention the new drivers that don’t realise that they are «out-walking» their friends and family who are desperately trying to «keep-up» with «Grandma» who now feels likes Stirling Moss! (I know – showing my age again…)

But how do you choose the mobility scooter that is right for you and your circumstances? So a few words to try and help.

Very simply, there are 3 types of mobility scooter:

1. Mini or Boot scooter
2. A medium size scooter.
3. A large one.

Stop me if I’m getting to technical 🙂 !

So let’s break them down in brief as to what they each can do – Pro’s and Con’s.

The Mini Scooter:

These scooters where designed to be broken down into 4 or 5 pieces, without tools, to make the manageable to go into a vehicle. Because they need to be the lightest as they can be, everything is smaller. The batteries, the seat, the length and width. They usually have no suspension and ideally only take a maximum weight of up to 18 stone – some will take up to 21 stone, but not ideal.

Mini Scooter - HireSo the Pro’s of the Mini Scooter are –

Transportable. The battery box can be taken out to take indoors to charge. Ideal for holidays on the coast – Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Marbella as some of the apartment blocks on the coast have very small lifts which these scooters usually are able to get into (check the size of your lift if you can). Great for negotiating shops and attractions on the coast.

The Con’s of the Mini Scooter are –

Due to the smaller battery they are suitable for short journeys. They do not cope very well with hills due to lack of power from the battery size. The ground clearance is about 2 inches high make some kerbs a little tricky to get down.

Take care in choosing the Mini scooter as it may not get you where you want it to. On holiday you tend to go a little further it one outing than you sometimes would at home. But if you only want it for short journeys it’s a real help in tight spots.

If you are interested in hiring or buying a mini scooter on the Costa del Sol feel free to get in contact with us.

——————–

The Medium scooter»

Here we go up in class as such. Usually 3 times the battery power of the mini scooter and a lot more comfier too.

The Pro’s –
Further distance can be achieved – up to 20 miles’ish. The seats are bigger and more padded. They have suspension to help with a smoother ride for those who may have back issues. A higher ground clearance to help getting down the kerbs. They usually have lights and a bigger basket on the front to make shopping easier. will take around 20 stone user weight.

The Con’s –

Will not break down to go into a vehicle. The batteries usually do not come out, so to charge the scooter up you will need to be able to drive it close to an electric point. Will not go in the small lifts here on the coast.

——————–

The Large scooter.

These were designed to take more weight and go a further distance with ease. The seats are larger again and can also help with the taller person as well with more leg room.

The pro’s and con’s are similar to the medium scooter, but beware of the length of the scooter for manoeuvring around pavements and enclosed areas

——————–

A brief introduction to choosing your mobility scooter for the first time, whether it be to enhance your holiday experience or your day to day mobility if you are lucky enough to live here on the coast!
I hope it has helped a little. But for all your mobility questions be it scooters or daily living aids for the home do not hesitate to contact me on (0034) from the UK 952 44 77 64, or pop over to my website:

www.mobilityabroad-costadelsol.com

There you can send me an email for any help you require or look at all the scooters and hire equipment I have.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, but if there is topic you would like me to cover mobility wise, let me know and i will do my best!

For those looking to hire in September, October and November, please get your orders in as soon as your flight is booked. It is getting extremely busy for those periods and I wouldn’t want you to be dissapointed.

Better shoot off now… I can feel the pool calling!

Catch up with you all very soon.

Regards,

Tony.
