What Do People Really Think About FOLD & GO WHEELCHAIRS?
“I am glad to report that when I received my heavy duty FOLD & GO, I seat-belted it into a small area in the back of my already over-packed SUV and drove from Los Angeles, California to Portland, Maine and back again. I can now make a statement, based upon a 5 ½ week nationwide experience, how I feel about my FOLD & GO chair. I would not have been able to explore a good number of places my wife and I, and our dog Roxy, visited across America in our over-packed SUV without this wonderful chair, and I thank you all for making this BIG/LITTLE chair.
The first time I used it was in at Niagra Falls, Canada. I went down a half-mile hill of sidewalk along the river to the point the water goes over the edge and then back up the hill again. I would never have attempted that with my forearm crutches.
Next we visited John Brown’s Farm in Lake Placid, N.Y. That was the first time I actually drove it off of smooth lawns and found that it worked like a little tractor going up the uneven dirt path behind the John Brown’s barn. I was really impressed with the power I had in the joystick. That is me out by the barn and in front of the farmhouse. Then after folding it again and I was still able to fit it in the back of our SUV, which was getting smaller and smaller with every stop at stores and shops along the way.
After traveling through New York I was following the path of our Minutemen along the “Battle Road Trail,” near the “Minuteman Visitor Center,” between Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. I also drove the chair all over the grounds of the “Portland Headlight,” lighthouse in Maine. On the way back home we drove again through New York again and stopped at Letchworth State Park to see the water falls there. The FOLD & GO made it easy for me to walk Roxy along the paths at Letchworth park.
Everywhere I used it people asked me about it. I found it was easier to stand up and show people how it folds than to try to explain how small it folds. When I showed them their jaws fell open, but you already know that, right.”

“This electric wheelchair has changed my life. I had gotten to a point where I didn’t want to do any traveling anymore because of the pain of walking.
Since getting this chair, I took one trip out of state and was so happy with the performance of the chair and the mobility it gave me to actually move around again without fear of walking and increasing my pain. It was so great, I took a second trip out of state and plan on going much more often!!!
My husband is really enjoying having me mobile again and able to go on adventures with him.
Thank you, FOLD & GO!!! I have a life again!!!!
If anyone out there is at all hesitant, don’t be. We thought about a scooter and chose this instead because of the flexibility of travel and how easy it is to literally “fold and go”!!!”

“HI, I have owned a Fold & Go for about 1 1/2 years now and what a life saver it has been to keep me active with my family and grandchild. I love to travel and had basically backed out of doing anything but small cruises – because I knew I could do it or it would be so difficult for my family members to push me around. Once I purchased the Fold & Go – I TRULY feel free! I have gone everywhere and you can’t stop me now.
I would like especially Thank Michele Klein, CEO for her advocacy. Recently on a trip of a LIFETIME and the airlines destroyed my chair on one of my flights. I was heartbroken. The airlines then tried to hire a third party dealer to repair my chair. That dealer was trying to replace my chair with a knockoff. Michele advocated to the airlines on my behal,f to make sure they did not give me a cheap knockoff as a replacement chair. Then FOLD & GO personally delivered a brand new chair to me today!”

“I got the heavy duty green chair and I love love love it! I was finally able to go out with my family to the Big E. I have not done that in years. Other people in wheel chairs got stuck (fortunately abled people helped them) then they thought I would also get stuck but, I didn’t!! I was able to go everywhere my family wanted without issue. This chair is worth every penny!!!”
Randy ~ Maine, USA
“Oh my gosh! Just got my new HD hot pink super dooper cool wheelchair!!!!!!!!! It is not only beautiful and bright and happy and makes me smile when I see it, works real nice too!!!
Just wanted to say thanks for putting the armrest extensions on and packing it so nicely and getting it here quickly. Thank you. I’m sure once I’m out and about people will be asking me about my cool chair! I need the make a contact in my phone so I can share your information easily!”

“I was treated for cancer nearly 9 years ago. No cancer now but complications from radiation and chemotherapy and a heart attack have left me mostly sitting at home. Today, I went with my grandchildren to a local natural history museum. It is the first time I have done something like that in years. My chair is my get out of jail card. I am very pleased with the chair and even more pleased with the new found mobility I now have.”
Ray ~ Utah, USA
“I’m so very happy with it. Used it for 5 hours on Saturday at the zoo. Fits so nicely in the trunk of my little Scion car. Great chair and very sturdy. 👌😎”
Jeffrey ~ Illinois, USA
“Absolutely love this wheelchair. It allows me to enjoy going to places where there’s usually a lot of walking or standing which are very strenuous for me. I’ve named mine “Bumblebee” as it transforms easily. I’ve also added my own modifications like LED headlights along the foot rest rim, LED taillights on the rear, an additional switch on the joystick controller for the LED lights, and perfect cup holder at the end of the non-joystick side arm rest. I’ve already planning on adding USB phone charger and more decorative LED lights. This will be a totally pimped out electric wheelchair!”
George ~ Washington, USA
“My custom colored chair turned out WAY BETTER than I imagined. I told them i wanted it lime green, like ‘Kermit the Frog’, and look at it. I get stopped every where I go, because no one else I know has a Kermit chair. Now we can ride in the water and sit in puddles just like Kermit. What an amazing chair and fits my style 100%.”
Francis ~ New York, USA
“Vernon has been praying for a chair for 6 months. He was adopted 7 months ago from China. He was using a chair that was too big and that his brothers had to push him around in. He was THRILLED that God answered his prayer. The family has adopted 11 children, 4 have special needs. The family would never have been able to have room in their van for a big power chair. God used you in a mighty way! Thanks for your chair!!”
Vernon ~ Arizona, USA
“Hook em’ Horns! We are SOOOOOO pleased with how our custom painted Texas chair tried out. We cannot believe how spot on the burnt orange color is. We get stopped every where we go in Austin. People have never seen a electric painted just for TEXAS fans!!”

“Our season tickets for the Seattle Seahawks are now complete with the addition of this wheelchair to our family. The other fans in our section love the new ride. Thanks for making this custom chair just for us!“

“I have The Heavy Duty ” Blue Steel “. I absolutely LOVE IT. I was going to name it ” Dory “. My friends have called me Batman for years.
I have Cerebral palsy, fierce determination, and fantastic gadgets to support my superhero status.
Soooooooo……Hey, where can I get a light bulb to put in my headlight to shine the bat signal?? Does anyone know?“
Michelle F. ~ Georgia, USA
“My world just got a little bigger! With these new shiny wheels, Now, I can keep up with many adventures that require walking without needing someone to push me. It also collapses for transport and travel. And, with five speeds, I might actually race someone again. Look out, Tom 🙂“
Elaine H. ~ Washington, USA
“I have a confession…I’m addicted to Mountain Dew! My family surprised me with this chair and it is the exact same color as my Mountain Dew bottle. Now all I need is a Dew sticker on the side. This is the difference, when you buy from a company that makes the chairs and actually uses the chairs too. Electric wheelchairs built for all types of weather and my own color too. Love that Dew Chair!!“

“This is Terri, my wife Tina is still recovering from her surgery; I am VERY pleased to say it was a success and Tina is on her way to a much better and active way of life!! Our amazing Orthopedic Physician/Surgeon, told us that Tina’s tumor was one of the ugliest tumor’s he had seen in his career! On top of the known growths, she had developed 3 additional “hooks” off of the original growth. One had punctured and was growing into her bursa, one was “playing the violin” with her sciatica, and the 3rd growing into and destroying muscle tissue. All was successfully removed and sent off for further testing. We will soon be able begin working on her new treatment and recovery plan.

“What a brilliant design! It works great to keep in the back of the car for when we have a lot of walking to do. No need to buy a hitch for the car and a trailer to haul this electric wheelchair. It’s only 46 LBS so it travels anywhere. Battery lasts a long time for running errands or even going to an amusement park. This electric wheelchair gives us more freedom to go where ever we want. I’m very happy with my purchase.”
Taylor T. ~ Salmon Arm, British Columbia
“You have been a life saver, unusual circumstances happened they day I received my chair, hot water tank busted, the next day rained and had to do errands to fix flood damage. I was also worried about my family hurting themselves even though the chair only weighed 55 lbs. My son looked at me and said “Mom I don’t ever want you to be afraid to use your chair.”….
That was freedom…. I haven’t had that in so long, we moved into the hotel 2 days later and it is what has made it possible for me to go get breakfast each morning, go on errands with family, go to supply store to purchase things to fix house.
My hubby was leary as to the odd shape and weight when loading but after the first time he was so happy. And the smile he saw on my face when I could crank it up to level 5, he told me it was worth every penny.
Thank you for giving my life back, I had just became used to living in my Lift medical chair and not going outside, but I have been looking forward to when I can leave my home. It is more than you ever know, the thanks I give to you is immense.”
Cindy ~ Oklahoma, USA
“We picked one of these up for my grandmother. It’s great. It’s light, easy to unfold and even easier for her to use. Now it’s so much simpler for her to go anywhere with any of us at anytime. Just toss it in the trunk and she’s out and about. It fits in everyone’s car too, so no need to get a van or truck to bring the big chair anymore. She’s ecstatic and loving it. Plus it’s chrome, so it looks cool.”
Vince F. ~ Chicago, Illinois, USA
“This is an amazing travel chair! I had a friend visit and while my home and historic little town aren’t truly accessible, this chair made all the difference! We even went to Crater Lake and were able to tour all around. The chair performed great on gravel, blacktop, dirt and every environment we landed on! This chair, for such a small investment, makes travel fun for all!”
Dee Anne E. ~ Oregon, USA
“This chair is greatly convenient. With it folded it fits perfectly into the back of my Prius, and not the bigger car either, just the standard size. Once it is unfolded it’s simply ready to go. Makes really nice, tight turns. The variable speeds are great for navigating when there are a lot of people around so I can adjust to keep up with the flow of foot traffic. Of course I love the different colors so I can get a color that matches my personality. The bag underneath the seat is the perfect storage area for the chairs’ charger cord and there is still plenty of room for a jacket, purse, or whatever extra stuff I need to take with me. All around it’s a great electric chair. It’s not big and bulky yet still has great power and maneuverability. I think I may need to get another one so I can match chair color to my outfits!”
Kateri C. ~ California, USA
“The chair arrived today at the Saudi Arabi airport and we picked it up from the airport and we love it!”

Angelica H. ~ Ithaca, NY, USA
“Very friendly and personal company. Chair is perfect to take anywhere. Light and easy for the caretaker to take in and out of the vehicle. Battery life is amazing. Had a few issues that were immediately handled by the company. Highly recommended.”
Janice E. ~ Arizona, USA
“I love this Chair! As a person that is overweight, I have lower back issues that make it difficult to do a lot of walking. With a 7-year-old daughter, I found that my back issues were keeping me from doing some of the activities my daughter wanted to do. So everywhere we went, that required a lot of walking, I would end up having to rent a wheelchair. Getting tired of paying so much to rent wheelchairs, I decided to spend the money for my own wheelchair. After looking at several different wheelchairs, I realized that I wanted a wheelchair that we could put in our car, that didn’t take up a lot of room. I also wanted a wheelchair that looked cool considering I am in my early 40’s. Now, I am able to take my daughter to the Zoo, and just recently we went to Disneyland and we had a blast! I couldn’t believe how many complements I got on my new wheelchair.”
Aimee W. ~ Arizona, USA
“My aunt has this chair and she just loves it! It’s pretty light and compact and fits in pretty much any car or trunk. She has been much more mobile since she got this chair: she’s able to go to the store more often, to the family outings, parks, birthday parties. She was even able to go see her niece’s softball game! Our family appreciates this chair very much as it made aunt Lisa’s life so much better and we get to enjoy her more. I’m not a specialist, but it seems like it’s easy for her to control. I also like that it comes with different color choices. It’s a great investment and I highly recommend it.”
