wheelchair hire

Post by MikeK » Sun Apr 19, 2015 4:27 pm

My wife has hurt her back and can't walk more than a few steps. Anyone know where I can borrow or hire a wheelchair as.a.p.?

Hello Mike

So sorry to hear about your wife's misfortune. I've got a few enquiries out with contacts, but so far everyone is drawing a blank. Being a weekend hasn't helped, but hopefully today being Monday might help. I assume the hotel are also making representations on your behalf? If not, please name and shame them here. Please also update us if you managed to find a wheelchair so that I can stop the hunt, so to speak.

Hi Mike, Rocky of Rocky Rentals (listed on here under car rentals or weblink is http://www.rockyrentalstobago.com/) offers wheelchair hire to clients - if you tell him you found him c/o Glyn from England, or Steve of Mytobago, he is such a nice chap I am sure he might rent you one independently of a car hire, especially if you give him a plug afterwards! http://www.rockyrentalstobago.com/

Many thanks, I've emailed Rocky.

Steve, Turtle Beach have loaned us a wheelchair for the duration of our stay so no complaints there, but we're off up to Charlotteville next Sunday for a week self-catering.

Thanks for your help,guys, and if any other sources occur to you please let me know, either here or on my Tobago phone which is 782 9603

Found out that my Tobago sim has expired, so no contact that way for the time being
