Common Questions

Will Beach Fun Rentals deliver off the island?

Yes, we deliver to many parts of Manatee County and Sarasota County.  Let us know your address and we will provide you an estimate for delivery fees.

What are the different types of bikes offered?

A cruiser bike is a standard bike with coaster style braking.  Cruiser Plus adds handbrakes to your cruiser bike.  Our premium bikes are comprised of our premium road bikes designed more for the person looking to accumulate many miles, and our premium geared cruiser which is our high end and highly desired comfort step through cruiser with gears and handbrakes.  All bikes are inspected after rental and alterations are made when needed but our premium bikes also undergo a tune up and road test after every rental.   We stock much less inventory on premium bikes since they require more attention. 

Can I get a basket, helmet and lock for my bike?

Baskets - Our standard cruiser bike is the only bike which will include a basket.  We do not offer baskets for any of our other bikes due to cable damage or impingement.

Locks - All rentals will include 1 lock for every 2 bikes rented.  Additional locks can be rented or purchased.

Helmet - All child bike rentals or child attachments will include a helmet for the child.  Adult helmet rentals are available for an additional fee.

When is the best time to request a reservation?

We offer reservations up to 6 months in advance.  Once we meet our reservation limit, reservations are closed.  We may still have walk-in availability on many items so come to our store early when you arrive and you may find what you need.  We do not offer a stand by list on any item.

Am I able to reserve chairs or beach items?

No, these items are only offered on a walk-in availability.  

I am just looking for pricing, can you provide a FREE estimate?

Yes.  Complete the form in the reservations link and you will receive an estimate.  One you approve the estimate we will send you the invoice where you will be able to leave a deposit to finalize your reservation.

Can I return my items after hours?

We ask that only motor vehicles be dropped off after hours.  Park your vehicle in a legal parking spot then place the key in the "key drop box" call our store phone and let us know you have dropped it off.

My bike got a flat tire or the chain fell off, what should I do?

The island has road hazards, hidden thorns, broken shells, nails and other items that may damage a tire or cause a chain to come off so this is a common issue.  During business hours, the quickest way to fix this would be to find the local trolley or bus stop and mount your bike and bring it back to our store to get it repaired.  We are sometimes able to come and assist you but this may not be as quick as bringing the bike back to us.  Do not leave the bike unattended or unlocked, as it is still your responsibility.  After hours leave us a message and we will make an effort to come to you on our next scheduled truck route.

Where am I allowed to drive my rental cart or scooter?

Carts (low speed vehicles) are only allowed on AMI while scooters and ebikes may also travel to LBK.  Both of these are licensed motor vehicles and you may drive these any place you would normally drive your automobile.  They are legal on all roads on the island.

How old do I have to be to rent and drive a scooter, golf cart or ebike?

You must be 21 years old to rent any item.

Drivers of scooters, class 2 ebikes and golf carts (lsv's) must be 21 years old and have a valid driver's license.

Drivers of class 1 ebikes must be at least 19 years old.

Can I rent a 2 person scooter? 

Yes.  We have the Wolf brand Islander model 49cc scooter in various cool colors.  It carries up to 2 persons with a weight limit of 330 lbs total and a has a top speed of 32mph.  Reservations are suggested.

My Electric Golf Cart is NOT charging, what should i do? 

This is a very common question.  Here are some things to check.

Check the outlet and make sure it has power. Use a hair dryer or other device so you can tell if it's working.  If NOT, then check your fuse box.  If you blew a fuse then reset the breaker and use a different outlet.  If the outlet IS working it may be you have a false reading on your display.  This is very common and is usually the case if you check your gauge immediately after unplugging your cart.  Allow your cart to charge overnight for at least 6 hours and only check the voltage once the cart is unplugged and sitting still.  A full battery will show 50 volts and a dead battery will show 42 volts or less.  If you still have issues call the cell number provided and speak with Steve.
