It is through a reaction born out of caring that the greatest solutions come to life. Scootaround began in a similar way, by a loving daughter whose father needed a mobility device for a family vacation. That is how North America’s leading personal transportation solutions company – Scootaround – came to life and made scooter rentals available across the nation.
How Mobility Scooter Rentals Were Born
Over 22 years ago, Scootaround’s founder, Lee Meagher, and her family went to Hawaii and assumed a mobility scooter would be available for rent while away. However, much to their disappointment, they couldn’t find scooter rentals anywhere. At this moment, Lee saw a gap in the market. She recognized that there was likely a large number of people across the world who struggled with the lack of rental service for mobility devices, making vacations more difficult and taking away from what should otherwise be a happy and comfortable experience. These thoughts inspired Lee to build Scootaround, one happy customer at a time. Over 20 years later, Scootaround now offers mobility rentals, sales, and repair services for scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, and rollators at 2,500 locations across North America and Europe. In 2018 Scootaround partnered with a design innovator, WHILL Inc., to provide more mobility options for users across the globe.

With the current limitations on travel and in some cases even leaving our homes due to COVID-19, most of our day to day lives have changed. Friends and families are keeping their distance, especially from the elderly that are more susceptible to the virus. In some cases that means that those with limited mobility can find themselves without the extra needed assistance they may have come to rely on. We are thankful that we can continue to provide the freedom and independence everyone deserves. If you or a loved one is struggling with mobility in smaller indoor spaces we have several mobility options that can help.
