Default Need to rent scooter-- recommendations please

I need a scooter for a week.
Recommendations, please, from recent renters. Scooterbug? Seems the easiest, but are they doing better than some reviews I've read?

TIA

I have used Gold Mobility. You need to meet them for Dropoff and Pickup but that was relatively easy. I would recommend doing a search on MouseOwners for recent threads for either scooters or ECVs (alternate term) and you will see various threads where this is discussed in more detail.

I rented from ScooterBug last trip and was very happy with them. Already reserved a scooter with them for next month. Very easy. They drop the scooter off at bell services and you drop it there when you check out.

Iím sure there are other companies that people are happy with.

I also used Scooterbug around 6 months ago while staying at SSR. I did not have to meet them because they left the scooter with bell services. Very easy and convenient.

I'm also a loyal renter from Gold Mobility. Yes, you have to meet them to get your rental. However, they keep in such close contact with me when I arrive at MCO that meeting them has meant sometimes having them arriving with my scooter as I stepped off DME or out of my Uber. Once or twice I have had to wait a few minutes. By meeting them, they can answer any questions, go over operation and charging, etc. By contrast, I did have a scooter dropped off at Bell Services years ago by another company. When I got to Bell Services, my key had been accidentally given to someone else and I had to wait almost 1/2 hour while they found another key that "would work". Gold Mobility has been excellent.

My husband is using Gold Mobility. It is the only scooter company he has used In the last 4 years since he needed one. They can be taken apart for transport in your car if necessary. We watched a video and the person that delivered the scooter went through the whole process with us.
