How To Rent a Powerchair

Renting a powerchair with Scootaround couldn't be easier. Book online or call 1-888-441-7575 to arrange a powerchair rental at your destination.

Scootaround can deliver the powerchair to your hotel, residence, or cruise ship port - whatever will be most convenient for you.

What Kind of Powerchair Does Scootaround Rent?

We are happy to provide our customers with a range of powerchairs to fit their needs, including Standard Powerchairs and HD Powerchairs. Availability of mobility equipment rentals can vary by location. Please check online or call us at 1-888-441-7575 to make sure we can accommodate your needs ahead of time.

Standard Powerchairs

Standard Powerchairs offer excellent maneuverability in small spaces because of their short wheel base. Many of our models have a removeable seat and can be disassembled for easier transport and storage. However, we recommend a minivan or SUV with a removable third row for the most ideal mode of transportation. Powerchairs are controlled with a joystick located on the armrest. The further away from the center you push the joystick, the faster you will go. Most of our models offer left or right-handed controls depending on your preference. The powerchair will brake automatically when the joystick is released, providing added security to the driver.

Some powerchair models come with a rotating seat and many have adjustable armrests and semi-reclining backs so you can fit it perfectly to your body. They also come with a footrest that can be folded away when the driver is getting in and out of the chair.

Scootaround offers these powerchairs with weight capacities of up to 350 lbs (varies by location).

Accessories Available: Rear BasketCanopyCupholder, and Cane Holder

HD Powerchairs

The HD Powerchair is similar to the Standard Powerchair model in terms of features. However, there are some distinct differences. Although this model cannot be disassembled for storage or transport purposes, its big advantage is being able to handle a higher weight capacity compared to the Standard Powerchair. We recommend using a minivan or SUV with a removable third row when planning to transport this type of powerchair.

Scootaround offers these powerchairs with weight capacities of up to 450 lbs (weight and model varies by location).
