Mobility scooter rentals
 
I would like to rent a mobility scooter for our next cruise in Oct. I have called "Care Vacations" and was quoted, what I consider, an unreasonable rate. I could buy one for the price of renting one from them twice! We are sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale. Does anyone here know of any other places in that area to rent one of these?

Just keep in mind that very few companies will be authorized by the cruise line to deliver to your cabin. If you are renting from a company that is not, you will have to arrange delivery and return, and many do not have delivery services on the weekend.

I did find another place that rents scooters, delivers them to the Cruise ship & picks them back up. They are a bit cheaper then carevacations. Thanks to a poster on another board, I got this link:

LOL Thanks all who posted. I got a scooter rented from Randle Medical. They gave me the loswest rate, deliver & pick up to state room and VERY friendly folks! I asked for a 4 wheeled scooter and they not only gave me it for the same price as the smaller scooter, they also gave me the 7 day price for an 8 day cruise! I'll let you all know how their service was once I get back in Nov. In the mean time here's the link.

Traveling with my scooter
 
Hi Again,

I'm considering traveling with my own scooter. I'm hearing horror stories about how airlines may damage it. Has anyone else traveled with their own. Any stories?

Thanks.

I was looking to hire a mobility scooter for my mother on a cruise from Southampton in the UK. When searching I found a link on the UK version of the Royal Caribbean website (Cruise Ship Accessibility - Royal Caribbean) to RentaScoota who are based near the port. The page all about their service can be found here Mobility Scooters Hire for Cruises from Southampton - Mobility Scooter Hire Southampton

I know this is a little off topic as not Ft. Lauderdale, but if it could help anyone from the UK who may read this page.

I would like to know how persons bringing their own scooters were helped by the cruise companies getting them on and off the ship.

and I'd like to know if in the US you have to have any form of insurance or driving lessons for these very heavy, quite fast 'vehicles'. We seem to be getting reports regularly in the UK of people being hit by them in the shops and high street & quite literally not having a leg to stand on if they try to claim for the resulting injuries.

apparently this is not true any company can carry a scooter, to your cabin, as long as this has complied with the regulations of the port, and there are many requirements
before speaking, first inform yourself

* if you think the rent is very expensive ..? YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW IS THAT

Actually, you are incorrect. The regulations of the port has nothing to do with it! The port does not control who does business with a particular cruise line. The ship is a privately owned vessel and only those companies who have a contract with the cruise line can board the ship for the purpose of delivering special need items to a passenger's cabin.

If a company does not have a contract with that cruise line, they will not be permitted to board the ship and can only supply the item/s to the passenger at the pier.

Cruise lines are not just to let any company walk onboard their ships without a contract and proper credentials. Not only a safety issue or a liability issue, but it's also a security issue.

and not saying that has anything to do or not!
of course you have to have credentials to enter the boat
these are acquired in the port where the ship docks

is true these boats are privately owned
but does not necessarily require a contract. where a company has access only to make the delivery of health care to its customers
patients or passengers have the right to receive delivery of the companies that they want, for security reason if the customer want your supplier has the supplies to deliver at the boat ,and that have their own identities through the port, such as (port id and twic and the delivery by notifying the boat), so that the information is protected. .. no one can force him to do otherwise has
*Your information must be PROTECTED at all times (HIPAA)

The HIPAA Privacy Rule Provides federal protections for individually identifiable health information held by covered entities and business associates and Gives Their patients an array of rights with Respect to That information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so That It Permits the disclosure of health information needed for patient care and other important purposes.

people can choose who supplies them
pete

what the contract is only to lead the person to one place (like cattle to a slaughterhouse)
