Myrtle Beach wants everyone to enjoy the beauty of the sandy beach and sparkling ocean, so there are a number of accessible beach accesses across town for residents and visitors with disabilities. The city also offers free rentals of beach-going wheelchairs at a first come, first served basis.

Myrtle Beach Wheelchair Rentals

The City of Myrtle Beach allows vacationers and residents to rent beach wheelchairs for free as long as they are available. In order to be fair to other guests, the city will not allow reservations to be made in advance, multiple-day requests, or overnight requests. Beach wheelchairs are only given to be used for one calendar day, and must be returned to the City of Myrtle Beach by 5 p.m. on the same day the wheelchair was rented.

Wheelchairs are delivered between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., seven days a week. This is dependent on weather and excludes off-season city holidays, which include New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, July 3 & 5, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

You can request a wheelchair by calling the Police Department communication desk at 843-918-1488 or by emailing [email protected] with the following information: your name, phone number, and precise delivery location.

You will also need photo identification for when it is delivered. The party must also sign a waiver to claim responsibility for the wheelchair and agree to return it. At the end of the day, someone from the City of Myrtle Beach will call the renter to collect the wheelchair. Wheelchair delivery locations must be within Myrtle Beach city limits.

In the event that the City of Myrtle Beach runs out of beach wheelchairs, they may be rented from a third party for a fee. These fees are determined by the company and the companies are not affiliated with the city.
