Renting Mobility Aids

Sasquan has contracted with Scootaround at fleet rates for mobility scooters, power wheelchairs, and rollator-type walkers, and will be renting these items to members at our cost. Prices, covering the entire duration of the con, are:

  • $280 for mobility scooters
  • $250 for power wheelchairs
  • $40 for walkers

Since Scootaround assures us their scooters will handle up to 450 lbs., heavy-duty scooters are not a separate option. If you would like a manual wheelchair, please contact accessibility@sasquan.org.

Reservations will be open until Tuesday, August 4th, two weeks before the con. If you discover your need for mobility aids after that date, please contact Accessibility either on-line or at the con and we will attempt to put you in contact with local Spokane providers.

Scooters can be picked up at the Accessibility desk any time after approximately noon on Tuesday and MUST be returned by 8 pm on Sunday. This deadline can only be extended by special advance arrangement with the Accessibility desk, and can in no case be later than 10 am Monday – the scooters need to be loaded onto the Scootaround truck.

If you did not pre-pay on-line, you will need to come to the Accessibility desk to obtain the payment form which you will then need to take to Registration for payment.

If you need to have a Sasquan volunteer deliver the scooter to your hotel or pick it up at the hotel on Sunday, please let us know at least a week in advance. And note that you will be responsible for either meeting the volunteer in the hotel lobby or making arrangement for storage with the hotel’s bell desk.

(Note to first-time scooter users: This is a motorized vehicle. Please be cautious and courteous.)

If you have any questions or problems, please contact accessibility@sasquan.org.
