With families spread far and wide across the country, summer is the time when get-togethers are easier. That means grandparents, of course. But they and other family members who use a wheelchair or walker have special needs.
Many families worry about whether including someone who uses a wheelchair in the plans is possible because of accessibility questions. A wheelchair ramp is the ideal solution but few families have one at their home, and vacation rentals typically are not very accessible.
Perhaps you’ve picked out a perfect spot to relax for a week, a house or cottage or villa with a bedroom on the first floor. But getting in and out of the house is making you think twice about whether it’s realistic to invite someone who uses a wheelchair. That’s where renting a wheelchair ramp comes in.
It’s not difficult and it’s affordable to have a modular wheelchair ramp installed at your home for visitors who use wheelchairs. Or you can rent one and have it properly installed in time for your week at the summer cottage on a lake or at the beach. Amramp’s modular wheelchair ramps can adapt to most surroundings with no damage or permanent alteration to the rental property.
Many families have memories of summers long ago at a vacation cottage and would like to gather generations of the family to relive the experience. They shy away, though, if the place is rustic and hard to access for those who use a cane, walker, or wheelchair.
A temporary wheelchair ramp solves this problem. And if the vacation rental doesn’t have an updated bathtub or shower, a temporary shower that hooks up to the kitchen sink for a water source is the answer.
Amramp rents and sells sturdy wheelchair ramps that can be installed by our professionals within a day. Unlike smaller, lightweight ramps, Amramps are adaptable for use in settings such as sandy, beachfront property or uneven terrain by a lake cottage. And there’s no permanent damage to the rental home.
Renting a wheelchair ramp for the vacation is an alternative to searching for a hotel that’s accessible for people who use wheelchairs. Many vacation areas are less likely to have large hotels with full amenities designed for those who use wheelchairs or walkers. And they can be distant from the shoreline.

Amramp is a national organization with local, factory-trained professionals and with local inventory throughout the country.
