Rent With Dependable Medical Equipment Today!
Dependable Medical Equipment is happy to rent you the right equipment and save you money compared to purchasing.

We rent our most common items so our customers don’t have to buy a piece of equipment they only need for a limited amount of time while in recovery. From Knee Scooters, Power and Manual Wheelchairs, Pride Seat Lift Chairs, Patient Lifts and more, we try our best to get you what you need and provide it in the most cost effective way to you.
Renting or buying? Any of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you in deciding which option is best for you. You can rest assured that your total rental charges will never exceed the purchase price of a new piece of equipment.
Delivery of Rental Equipment
As with all of our purchased equipment, we offer our delivery service with all of our rentals, often at no charge to you within our service area depending on the item. Our technicians will deliver and set up your equipment while also providing you with instructions on how to properly use it, and fold it for transport if applicable. If you have any questions about how to use your equipment you can always call our office and we will do our best to answer your questions and make sure you are comfortable using your equipment.
Returning Rental Equipment
Rental equipment needs to be returned to the Dependable Medical Equipment, at which time the rental period will be finished. If you want your equipment to be picked up by Dependable Medical Equipment you will need to contact our office and schedule a pick-up date. You will then be contacted on the day of your pick-up with a specific time window. All pick-ups for rental items are subject to a minimum $40 pick-up fee within 5 miles from our office, increasing with distance. Rental period will stop once the equipment has been picked up by a DME representative.
Cleaning Rental Equipment
All of our rental equipment goes through a thorough disinfecting, cleaning, and testing process using industry approved cleaning materials. You can be confident that you will receive clean, safe, and ready-to-use equipment every time.
Renting Through Insurance
Dependable Medical Equipment is contracted with many local and nationwide insurance providers. Many insurance companies determine what equipment will be rented or purchased depending on the cost of the equipment and the estimated length of need, as prescribed by your ordering physician. More expensive items like hospital beds and wheelchairs will often be rented for a period of time before they reach their “capped” rental price, at which point the equipment becomes patient-owned. (See “capped” rental section for details.)
You rental will “cap” when the total rental charges equals the purchase price of a new piece of equipment. This applies to all private rentals.
Your insurance-paid rental will “cap” when the total rental charges equals the maximum allowable cost, as set by your insurance for the individual piece of equipment. This can vary depending on your insurance provider and individual policy. In this case, you might be responsible for any existing copays. The total amount paid by your insurance, including any copays, will not exceed the purchase price of a new piece of equipment.
Don’t hesitate to call or email us with any rental related questions, we look forward to your business!
