If you’ve always dreamed of enjoying some fun and sun on the beach, but thought it was impossible because you use a wheelchair, then think again. Thanks to an enterprising man on the Alabama coast, that dream is now well within your reach.
Jerry Nasello loves the beach, but he has ALS, and it’s impossible for him to navigate the sand in his wheelchair. He also has a very analytical mind, so he decided to create his own version of an invention he saw in California — a power beach wheelchair.
His first model used PVC pipe, but subsequent models incorporated lightweight metal frames into the design, while his latest creation is made from a non-corrosive alloy. Add in a partially reclining upholstered seat, so you can catch a few rays, and a joystick for easy control, and you have the perfect beach access solution for wheelchair-users and slow walkers. And the good news is, today Jerry has a whole fleet of power beach wheelchairs for rent on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
These power beach wheelchairs allow for independent access to the beach — in other words, nobody has to push you around all day. It’s the perfect solution for folks who have a nice stretch of beach in front of their condo; but even if you don’t have beach access, it’s still a viable option, as you can just pick up your rental at Jerry’s house and roll over to a nearby beach.
Daily rental rates start at $60, but discounts are available for multi-day rentals. A three-day rental is priced at $165, and if you rent for four days or more, the daily rate drops to $50. Pick up and delivery is available for a $40 flat-rate within a 20 mile radius of Gulf Shores, and an attachable beach umbrella is available for an additional $5 per day.
So get out and enjoy the beach on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. For more information visit www.BeachPowerRentals.com, or call (251) 967-3729 to reserve your power beach wheelchair today.
