Beach accessibility on the Alabama Gulf Coast is no longer a dream – Beach Power Rentals can make it happen.
The motorized beach wheelchairs will take you to the water’s edge. their unique, beach wheelchairs have a heavy duty aluminum frame, a heavily padded adjustable seat, conventional wheelchair joystick controls, fold-up arm rests, infinitely adjustable foot-rests, rear anti- tip wheels, automotive style seat belts, built in umbrella stand, an optional 8 ft. umbrella, and our chairs can accommodate any one from 50 pounds to 350 pounds. Now going to the beach is no longer a spectator sport for individuals tat are injured or disabled.
Their custom-made motorized beach wheelchairs are made from a welded aluminum frame with numerous adjustments, and comes with a padded, comfortable seat that partially reclines. They do not take credit for inventing the motorized beach wheelchair. There are several manufacturers on the west coast who build and sell similar powered beach wheelchairs. The major difference between them and us is that they sell their new beach wheelchairs for $7000–$10,000 and we rent our used beach wheelchairs for $40 to $60 per day. Beach wheelchair rentals allow a much greater number of beach vacationers to enjoy getting to their beach getaway.
There is nothing like a day at the beach in one of our fantastic motorized beach wheelchairs. Their powered beach wheelchairs afford the disabled beach vacationer the mobility to access the beach with ease. Now you don’t have to watch all of the fun on the beach from the condo. Our beautiful beach sand is sugar white once again and awaits your arrival.How they got started! After retiring to the beach in March of 2004, Jerry started having problems with fatigue. In June of 2005, he was diagnosed with ALS, or, Lou Gehrig’s Disease. As his health declined, his ability to get to the beach became increasingly difficult.
While he was still able to walk he modified a fisherman’s cart by adding Wheeleez tires and PVC so that it was converted into an easy to push or pull beach cart. Soon thereafter, he added wheelchair motors and controls so that he could carry a large load with minimum effort.
Note the fordable umbrella wings, which eliminate the need to bury the umbrella pole in the sand, and they fold back when not in use.
As the legs began to weaken, Jerry started working on a beach wheelchair. Using PVC pipe and the knowledge he gained from building the electric beach cart, he was able to build a beach wheelchair prototype powered and controlled with electric wheelchair components.
Once the design was complete, he hired someone to build a metal frame. This new frame eliminated inherent PVC weakness, lowered the center of gravity and made the beach wheelchair more stable.
Before completing our full year and the beach wheelchair rental business, our chairs began rusting. We knew then that our beach wheelchairs had to be built with aluminum. After a great deal of trial, error, and testing we came up with what you see below.
The beach wheelchair on the top was custom built for one of our customers who uses it as a camping chair or an all-terrain chair.
The beach wheelchair pictured next to the multicolored beach umbrella below is an all-terrain beach wheelchair. It is just as happy off-road as it is on the beach. This is due to the nature of the tires with which it is equipped. We almost exhausted every available tire type while researching and testing this chair.
These incredible motorized beach wheelchairs evolved over a five year period while we were renting and maintaining our beach wheelchair rental fleet. We have gained so much knowledge and insight during this process. As a result, we consider our motorized beach wheelchairs to be the finest available and we think that you will too after you experience a day in the Mercedes Benz of motorized beach wheelchairs.
