Electric scooter or wheelchair rental

Is there anyplace in the city that rents electric scooter chairs or wheelchairs for several days in the city that any of you are aware of? I am in search of this for a friend that needs this by the week-end.

yes there are but I will have to hunt through my stuff to find them. I picked up a brochure last week-end so let me try and find it. I'll get back to you!

Thank you so much, I have written to both Pigeon forge & Gatlinburg sites & have gotten no reply. A ggod friend needs this ASAP. She has disabilities & is taking her grandson this coming week-end with her family & would like to be a part of the trip instead of waiting in the car.

Here is a discussion we had back in 2006 that lists rental companies.

I have a 2006-7 phonebook for the area and the only listings for "wheelchairs" (nothing listed for "scooters") are

All Med of East Tennessee (Knoxville) 865-686-0000

Bess & Co (Sevierville) 865-429-0064

Under "Medical Equipment" these places are listed:

Home Medical Equipment & Supply (Sevierville) 865-908-4973

AAA Plus Medical Supple (Sevierville) 865-428-1118

Lee's Total Health Home Medical Equipment & Supply (Sevierville) 865-908-4973

There aren't any places listed in Gatlinburg, but Sevierville is close enough that you could rent the scooter/wheelchair there and use it during the stay and return it back to Sevierville.

Thanks to all of you so much. She will be so happy to be able to enjoy this time with her family. I have already given her the numbers so she can start calling first thing in the morning. Thanks again.

Hi Ky.Graceann,

Both cities are usually very good about replying to e-mails. When I first e-mailed them, they went into the spam folder and I never checked, so I kind of got mad because I thought they never responded. Come to find out, all their responses were in the spam folder/file.

Thanks, I checked the spam folder after you posted but there is nothing there. I might have caught them after hours on Friday, I will let you guys know if I get any replies tomorrow morning. Again Thanks to everyone for all your help.

Just an update for you guys: I did receive a reply from Pigeon Forge Tourism, they sent a couple a phone numbers for my friend but not as many as you guys. Gatlinburg replied this morning and had only pushable chairs available. So both cities did reply but you guys bailed me out & saved a vacation for my friend, many many Thanks to all of YOU!!!

Can you please tell me where in Gatlinburg you can get a pushable wheelchair. I need one for my uncle in May (we'll go to the Smokey's with them) but I don't know the organisations in the USA as I live in Holland.

thanks, Loes
