Beach wheelchair Questions
Can the De-Bug (Traditional) Beach Wheelchairs go in the water?
Beach wheelchairs can be pushed in very shallow water but the balloon tires will become buoyant and unstable if the chair reaches deeper water or if a wave hits the chair.
Are there public handicap beach accesses in Destin, FL, 30A, Miramar Beach, and Okaloosa Island?
Yes, Please refer to our maps page and look for the handicap symbol.
Can the De-Bug (Traditional) Beach Wheelchairs be pushed on all terrains (incl. grass, dirt, pavement, etc.)?
Yes, the Beach Wheelchair can function as a regular wheelchair when not being used on the beach. But the chair does not function as easily as a normal wheelchair due to its bulky wheels and rear pivoting wheels, so it is not recommended unless being used to transport the user to and from the beach.
Does the De-Bug (Traditional) Beach Wheelchair require a pusher?
Yes, our De-Bug Beach Wheelchairs require a pusher, but we do not offer Powered Beach Wheelchairs for rent.
Does the De-Bug (Traditional) Beach Wheelchair contain a seat belt?
Yes, it contains an adjustable lap belt and chest strap.
The De-Bug Beach Wheelchairs have a weight limit that is below my weight, can I still rent the chair?
The weight limit is put in the place at the convenience of the renter. The chairs can technically hold more than the weight limit but become increasingly harder to push when the weight exceeds the posted limit. We have estimated the weight limits based on weights of prior customers, and their experiences with the chairs.
Can your De-Bug Beach Wheelchairs fit in my car?
Transport of the Beach Wheelchairs may be important if a handicap accessible beach access is not located within walking distance. The De-Bug Beach Wheelchair can fit into most compact and mid-sized vehicles when partly disassembled. If you are unsure please call and speak to a Destin Wheels representative.
Do I have to secure/lock up the Beach Wheelchair when not in use?
Yes, it is recommended that you lock up the wheelchair when not in use. Beach Wheelchairs are actually quite valuable, and though it seems strange, people will steal them if given the chance.
