    Wheelchair van rental near Milwaukee airport

    I need to rent a minivan with a wheelchair ramp in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area for 4 days.

    I found this place, but it's $129 per day. Are there any better places?

    Based on my somewhat limited experience, that's about what I'd expect to pay.

        That's pretty much the only thing that comes to mind around here regarding vehicles like that. Get ready to debate mythical 'certifications' that you can drive with hand controls from these clowns. I did find that mentioning having a hand control endorsement on my driver's license seemed to put a damper on that roadblock they seemingly were gleeful to throw around (even after they saw me driving up in a hand control car). It was rather odd that they were rather surprised and perplexed that such a thing existed. Not exactly sure how they could be so myopic as to this state's licensing schema considering their business...but it a 'disabled' industry, so expectations need to be quite low when dealing with these types, lol.

          A&J looks like they do rentals ask if they can give a discount to secure your business vs booking with Mobility works or pitch the same to Mobility works!

          http://www.aandjmobility.com/

          That is a pretty standard rate $120 plus miles...most give you 100 per day.

          FYI a lot of places charge to deliver to the airport $75 to $150 each way.

          Sometimes if you are traveling with others they can take a cab or uber cheaper get the van and bring it to the airport.

            Thanks for the tip! I've been talking with A&J. They have much better daily rates for 3-6 day rental ($95 vs $129 at Mobility Works), but their delivery charge is crazy ($175 to MKE airport both ways total, vs $120 at Mobility Works). My nurse doesn't want to go get the vehicle, so I haven't decided what to do. A&J (Jackie 920-775-4538) is nicer on the phone, but they won't budge on the delivery charges. Mobility Works came down to $109/day for 3 days (Thank you RollPositive for suggesting that I negotiate!). So it's $457 at Mobility Works vs $460 at A&J. A wash.
