The Floridian City of Tampa is located on an inlet on the far west coast of Florida. Other major areas/cities we service and deliver to in this area are St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Palm Harbour and Lakeland.
The boundaries of the Tampa Bay Area vary depending on the local authority or local people you speak to, but generally speaking you can consider Hillsborough County and Pinellas County (including the aforementioned cities of Tampa itself, St Petersburg and Clearwater)to constitute the “ most limited definition ” of the Tampa Bay area.
A typical Tampa day is sunny, clear with a light breeze – making it such a great place to roll around in. It mixes a cosmopolitan feel with party beach holiday seamlessly. Industry and job markets are on the rise in this city, and it is attracting people from all over the world.
You will be pleased to learn that Tampa has made a concerted effort over recent years to “inspire all travellers to love Tampa Bay, and this includes travellers with special needs” says Santiago C. Corrada, president and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay [source: https://www.visittampabay.com/media/news/post/visit-tampa-bay-markets-destinations-accessibility-and-inclusivity-for-travelers-with-disabilities/]
With broad sidewalks and paths many attractions have created special access for individuals choosing to explore the city on a mobility scooter, electric wheelchair (Tampa Riverwalk and Lettuce Lake Park are just some of the great areas to explore.)
You will find that some of the attractions have ZERO steps making it such an enjoyable city to experience on a motorized wheelchair or handicap scooter.
Reasons why you should buy a power scooter online from Scooters 'N Chairs® to use in Tampa
We are of the opinion that showrooms tend to have bossy salespeople trying to make a quick buck and pressure you in to choosing from their limited range. Think about it – you have to go to the showroom, only to find a limited selection of stock and the inevitable approach from the salesperson homing in on you to make a sale. We advise that you do the research FIRST. We have a plethora of products to browse through. From 3-Wheel Mobility Scooters to Heavy-Duty Electric Wheelchairs you can find the product that is right for YOU in YOUR own time.
Examine the specifications, dimensions, compare prices on other websites if you want to (although you will find we are offer the most competitive price online – we will not be beaten on price that is for sure!).
Think about the pointers below – we want to support you in making the correct choice when acquiring your motorized chair. Buying is always better than renting an electric mobility scooter to explore the gorgeous Floridian city of Tampa. At Scooters 'N Chairs® we believe you should make your motorized chair your own. You will much prefer to use your own unit than borrow – it may not feel right, it may not have the right features – you will always feel more comfortable in YOUR OWN chair.

After-sales Handicap scooter/wheelchair Service
Selecting the correct product is essential with regards to after-sales assistance and maintenance. You should cautiously contemplate the descriptions of your power wheelchair and think about what sort of after-sales service will be available.
Scooters 'N Chairs® we will be more than pleased to satisfy any queries, but you should consider what the different adult scooter/power wheelchair brands offer after-sales.
Local expert professionals who come to your home to repair/maintain your scooter/power(ed) chair can be organized if you select your unit from the range offered by these brands:
Mobile Scooter/Electric Wheelchair brands that offer After-sales options
Please consider that some brands do not offer any after-sales servicing. 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 source your own local technician 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 available. More often, brands will give you one year free and then charge for the second and third 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 an electrically powered wheelchair/scooter by means of Medicare can prove exceptionally challenging so we would recommend finding funds for your product before assuming this unfeasible option.
Transportation - vehicle lifts and carriers
To explore the surrounding cities and neighbourhoods of Tampa you may consider a folding scooter or lightweight option without sacrificing power and comfort.
Whether you want to explore Tampa Heights, Brandon or Spring Hill travelling around is made much easier by considering a vehicle lift or carrier.
These products could give you more freedom as you can put your mobile scooter/electric wheelchair on to motor vehicle. This can open more areas/attractions as you can drive in your mobility/wheelchair and roll off.
You may have a few questions at this point, and we are more than happy to chat through with you. Call our welcoming consumer assistance team or e-mail us. You can view our terrific vehicle lifts and carriers on our website.
