Oakland, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Renting a Segway is tons of fun. The Segway is the world's first self-balancing scooter, and riding one is very easy. However, because this vehicle is totally unique, it does take a little practice and a lesson from an experienced and trained Segway tour guide to help new riders get going. Segway of Oakland offers one-on-one personal lessons that can help new riders get up and going on a Segway in no time at all.
“When you rent a Segway from us you get the original Segway PT,” said Steven Steinberg, Co-Owner of Segway of Oakland. “Our veteran staff can teach you to ride on site, or in just about any convenient place. The Segway is adaptable so once you get going you'll find that it can go over a lot of different kinds of surfaces.”
Steinberg continued, “We have both the wide tired, off-road X2, and the narrow tired I series Segway that is better for maneuvering through crowds. Our units have lean-steer technology, which means you lean back and forth to steer and turn. These are the newer Generation 2 units, and we also have some of the older Generation 1 series Segways that use the twist grip steering, which we offer at special requests.”
Weekends and holidays book quickly so it's recommended that anyone wanting to rent a Segway reserve their rental units ahead of time. The rates are $99 a day, $199 a week, $399 for two weeks, and $729 for a whole month. The rental process is very easy, and all Segway of Oakland needs is a driver’s license, a major credit card, and a signature for each Segway that the customer rents.
Segway of Oakland also provide onsite private Segway lessons, so for anyone wanting to learn how to ride and would rather have private instruction, they will do that onsite as well (Bay Area only). For law enforcement enterprises and personnel, Segway of Oakland even has special rental rates that are 25% lower on average, and they offer special training for law enforcement personnel.
