Default Looking for a mobility scooter rental near Gatlinburgh

So far all I can find is by the week. I will only need it 3 days at the most. I don't want to pay $400 for a week. Any ideas????

try contacting the MS chapter in that region. They may have one available for loaner while you need it on your trip. Good luck!!

" Vehicle rentals

Need to rent a car? How about a 4x4? Local rental companies offer a great selection of cars, SUV's, motorcycles, ATV's, scooters, and dune buggies. Mobility scooters are also available. Limousine services are available for weddings, corporate and scenic tours, and trips to the airport, or a fun night out on the town. "

Did you try contacting a local Senior center or nursing home? They have the most contacts for this type of service & sometimes can help get medical plans or area services to pay for the device. Good Luck!
