Scootaround gearing up for increased equipment needs.

I appreciate the work that Scootaround is doing locally and echo the appeal for visitors to plan ahead for their mobility requirements.

The people at Scootaround want to make sure that all attendees who need a wheelchair or mobility scooter can rent one when attending Barack Obama's upcoming Presidential Inauguration. With mainstream new sources estimating well over 1,000,000 attendees, Scootaround is mobilizing additional resources and equipment for its East Coast scooter fleets.

"We support large events across the nation each month, many with attendances of more than 100,000 people. However the D.C Inauguration will be an event that requires an enhanced level of advance logistical planning." said Kerry Renaud, President of Scootaround Inc. "As North America's only national provider of mobility rental equipment, people are looking to us for support. Our goal is to provide for the need of each and every attendee that requires mobility assistance to the best of our abilities for this very special event."

Russ Holt, President of, D.C.'s key source for online disability information, says that Scootaround has been a strong supporter of the disabled community for over a decade. "I appreciate the work that Scootaround is doing locally and echo the appeal for visitors to plan ahead for their mobility requirements." Holt was speaking of Scootaround's ongoing effort to encourage D.C. visitors to book their rental equipment in advance through their website ( or through their 7-day toll-free hotline (1-888-441-7575).

Scootaround recently created the nation's largest fleet of traveling mobility scooters and wheelchairs by having the Mobility Rental Service group join the Scootaround network. Speaking on the recent company merger, Kerry Renaud said "Our partnership has provided us with more resources in terms of staff expertise and additional mobility equipment. As Inauguration week draws closer, Scootaround is prepared to mobilize equipment for the event as required."
