The Wheelchair Site frequently receives questions concerning wheelchair rentals in our mailbag. Unfortunately, The Wheelchair Site is not equipped with the man-power it would take to research each individual request for wheelchair rentals in their hometown.
The best place to begin your search for wheelchair rentals is in your Yellow Pages directories and the online Yellow Pages directory website. Start by searching under the following categories:
Then start making phone calls to the wheelchair rental vendors in the city that you want to rent a wheelchair in. After conducting a quick search on my local Yellow Pages directory website, I located 10 companies who rent wheelchairs.
When looking to rent a wheelchair keep in mind the purpose. Many elderly people who regularly use canes or walkers rent transport wheelchairs during sight-seeing vacations or for weddings. On the other hand, an all-terrain wheelchair would be perfect for an outdoor cottage vacation by letting you get close to nature and explore beautiful forest habitats - over gravel, grass, in water and through sand.
Please keep in mind when making travel plans that many resorts throughout North America and the Caribbean offer wheelchair rentals to their vacationing guests. Ask your travel agent to check with the resort you're booking with to see if wheelchair rentals are offered.
