How Nimble Cargo Scooters Are Used
[ KICK SCOOTING - 10/12/2014 - www.LetsKickScoot.com ]
>>  I, Alix Armour, am one of the co-developers of the Nimble Cargo Scooter, and, with Cynthia Armour, co-authored this article. My background is in industrial design.
Our Nimble Cargo Scooter is designed to haul small cargo over short distances. Its container, made of sturdy, non-toxic plastic, can hold all sorts of belonging, tools, packaged goods, and bags up to 18 gallons, with a maximum load capacity of 250 pounds, including the rider.
While I know you all understand what "cargo carrying means," you might enjoy seeing how our customers and friends use our scooter.
Katherine lives in New York City and uses her Nimble Cargo Scooter to take her daughter to school!
One of our first customers, Katherine bought her Nimble Cargo Scooter in May 2014. Since then, she says "We were stopped so many times, we were late for school," noting that her husband is impressed with the quality of the scooter and is "extremely jealous" of her rides.
Almost everyone we know, from urban dweller to fair-goer to camper, can find uses for the Nimble Cargo Scooter.
Customers Eric and Jessica use their Nimble Cargo Scooter to go fishing in Dana Point, California.
Bait? Check. Fishing Poles? Check. Ice chest? Check. They can easily carry everything they need in their Nimble Cargo Scooter. As they put it, "We went to Doheny State Beach with the family for the day," explained Eric, "We usually ride bicycles, carrying a pole in one hand over the handlebars and the tackle box in the other hand. Since we now pack so much fishing gear in the Nimble and don't have to fumble, the rest of the family has decided to join in on the fun."
Of course, Nimble Cargo Scooters are built for the workplace. Consider how beer is hauled by the Gallia Brewery in Paris, France.
Our cargo scooters are also used to move items around arena and conference centers. Just ask our customer in Ljubljana, Slovenia, who wrote us that "Your scooters are just great - the whole crew rides them around the place with a smile." Note that we currently ship our scooters throughout Europe and the USA.
Outside of buildings, our cargo scooters are used to carry flyers, magazines, and newspapers. The people who ride them think that they are much easier to use than the heavy-duty, delivery tricycles that they used to use for these tasks.
Best, students can make good use of them on campus; possibly better use of them than on bikes, or on standard kick scooters alone.
