Perhaps you may have not considered the city of San Francisco to be motorized wheelchair/electric scooter friendly because of the hilly terrain. However, we are delighted to tell you that mobile scooter and wheelchair users can enjoy this city as it is very accessibility friendly.
“The City by the bay”, “Golden Gate City”, “Frisco” – this city is known by many different names in popular culture.
The city is hilly and roughly square, but you can access the street cars, buses, and trains without having to leave your power(ed) chair.
The city is California’s most culturally and ethnically varied cities. Founded in 1776 it grew when news spread across the world about The California Gold Rush. Most new prospectors landed in San Francisco first.
San Francisco dominates the northern tip of the peninsula. South of San Francisco are “the bedroom suburbs of San Mateo”. East/northeast of the city you will find the bay while over to the west and northwest you will find the Pacific Ocean.
There are generally accepted nine counties in the Bay Area; Sonoma County, Marin County, Napa County, Solano County, Contra Costa County, Alameda County, San Mateo County, San Francisco County and Santa Clara County.
The city has many iconic landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, and there is going to be something to do at every corner you turn. We deliver electric wheelchair and mobility scooters all over San Francisco and The Bay Area.

Wheelchair and mobility scooter accessibility in San Francisco
We will go over some of the attractions and accessibility tips in the section. It is such an exciting city to visit. What are you waiting for?
BART and Municipal Bus systems are easy to use and Amtrack is also accessible!
The city is very scooter and wheelchair accessible, but Sacramento and California Street are dangerously steep so stay clear of these whilst exploring the city.
Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf are the best areas to stay to in terms of level terrain – ideal for casually rolling around San Fran and enjoying the city. It easy to get around from these areas.
If you fancy visiting the waterfront here, YOU CAN; it is very level and packed full of interesting things to see and do. We also would give special recommendation to the Holiday Inn San Francisco-Fisherman’s Wharf as it has made a clear and obvious effort to be scooter and wheelchair friendly!
Here you can experience a beautiful park and shops galore! A vast, flat space to breeze around in. Loads of accessible restaurants. Pier 39 is a must! You can even jump on a Bay Area cruise the ships have ramps and you can roll right on (be warned there are no restrooms on the cruise ships).
The boats out to Alcatraz are accessible and when you arrive you can get a lift right up to the prison attraction. There are accessible toilets on the island too!
Golden Gate Bridge
This most famous bridge connects the Peninsula to the further Northern Counties in CA, such as Marin, Yolo, El Dorado AND Sacramento.
Delivery of your mobility scooter/electric wheelchair from Scooters 'N Chairs®
ALL shipping above $99 is free.
All our Electric scooters and powered wheelchairs are over the $99 mark, essentially making shipment free of charge.
Shipping can take between 2 to 5 business days to be delivered (dependent upon where it is shipping from and where it is shipping to).
The delivery service networks we liaise with will guarantee they give you a call you (our valued customer) before the delivery so that we can organize an appropriate time slot. If this proves problematic, we can rearrange delivery for a different day.
3 types of Delivery available
Drop Off Delivery- 1 Crate 1 Unit
Our delivery carriers will drop off your unit in one crate as close as we can get to your property (please keep in mind some of the delivery trucks are big and may not fit down a small street). You would open your crate and roll off your brand-new mobility scooter/motorized wheelchair. You will be responsible for disposing of any packaging.
Drop Off – Several Boxes (simple self-assembly required)
In some circumstances, depending on the model/brand of you scooter/wheelchair, your product will be delivered in different boxes. These might deliver these curb side or directly to your doorstep depending on the brand, manufacture, carrier, and other factors. We are always happy to discuss the intricacies of your order with you.
You may be required to do some self-assembly which is never complex or difficult. You will just need a screwdriver and to follow some very simple instructions.
White Glove Delivery ($250)
More suited to those who do not wish to do any self-assembly, live in an apartment block and would rather that a local technician brought the unit in to the home and made it ready for use.

After-sales electric scooter and wheelchair options
When choosing your mobility unit please consider after-sales service. Please cautiously think about the requirements of your power wheelchair and think about what sort of after-sales service will be offered.
Scooters 'N Chairs® we will be more than delighted to address any questions on after sales options/plans.
Regional technicians may come to your home to carry out maintenance/service repair on your mobility unit. This can be organized if you select your version/model/brand from the range offered by these companies:
Some brands do not offer any after-sales repairing/services.
In this instance what is likely to happen is that a particular part will be shipped out to you in the mail, and you would need to fix yourself or contact a local engineer to service your mobility scooter.
Well-respected brands and suppliers may offer free in-home service, or they will charge for this per annum with a maximum of three years’ service contract offered.
Brands will give you one year free and then charge for the 2nd and 3rd years of service. One brand offers 2 years free and charge for the third year, and some brands charge for 1, 2, and 3 years if you need in-home servicing as an upgrade.
Please be aware no brand will offer over 3-year servicing after purchase. If something goes wrong out of warranty, we can support you in finding a technician through our network of manufacturers. Please note that we cannot offer support/repairs on any products that we do not sell on our website.
Getting a electric wheelchair/scooter through Medicare can prove extremely difficult so we would advise sourcing funds for your product before relying on this unfeasible option.
Wheelchair and Scooter lifts
You can view our terrific vehicle lifts and carriers on our website.
Vehicles and carriers give you more independence as you can put your mobility scooter/power wheelchair onto/into motor vehicle. This can open more areas/attractions to you.
