Equipment supplier Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare is warning mobility dealerships to be aware of people looking to sell scooters onto them in the run up to Christmas after 81 Envoy models were stolen last week.
A full container of mobility scooters was stolen from a secure transport and distribution compound and now the company is urging dealers to be aware.
In a statement, the firm said: “Drive DeVilbiss is requesting all customers and scooter resellers to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity if they are approached by individuals seeking to sell Envoy scooters through non-legitimate channels.”
It added: “The company would also like to stress that this unfortunate incident does not compromise availability levels for this popular model.
“Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare holds stock of the Envoy scooters and can also source to meet demand from dealers and partners across the UK. No product shortages are anticipated.”
The missing scooters are described as follows:
- Envoy Red, serial numbers from VP174173 to VP174193

- Envoy Silver, serial numbers from VP174214 to VP174233
