Andy Murray & Peterborough Mobility Roadshow…..

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011 by morethan

Has summer finally arrived?  Well it seems to depend on where you live – while the south baked yesterday the rain continued to fall elsewhere.  But it was nice to see the new Duchess of Cambridge in her persil-white dress cheering Andy Murray on at Wimbledon – if the weather in Scotland did not behave at least its famous sporting son did – was that actually a bow and a smile?!

At More Than Mobility we find that it gets very busy from now on through to the autumn – and this year is no exception.  Although many retailers reduce their chair stock at this time of the year we still have plenty of rise and recline chairs – from leather to almost any colour combination you can think of with very keenly priced dual motors as well as singles and wall huggers (made for tight spaces).  Please feel free to view our full range of rise and recline chairs by clicking here.

Mobility Scooter Buyers Guide & Best For Flyer

For mobility scooters we have a new Mobility Scooter Buyers Guide and “BEST FOR “ Flyer which is quite simply a round-up of very reliable mobility scooters that have particular features that you might find useful – from “best for ground clearance” to “best for range” or “best for price” – we have given you our straightforward opinion. 

Since there is such a wide range of mobility scooters we know that customers doing their research can find it hard to differentiate – this handy little guide is designed to help you identify the particular features that might make a particular model just right for you.  It’s not exhaustive but it might help you get less exhausted by highlighting useful aspects of good quality mobility scooters.  To request a copy please email us at info@morethanmobility.com or call our customer services team on 0800 046 3949 and they will pop one in the post.

Peterborough Mobility Show – this week – starts Thursday June 20!

Peterborough is the destination for our team at the end of the week where we will be at the Mobility Roadshow on Stand C6 (indoors), with a wide variety of mobility scooters and rise and recline chairs.  It is a super place to come and see all the various companies and perfect for trying more options than you might be able to at a single shop.  With plenty of space it is ideal for test drives and we would be delighted to see you there.  If you want to find out more do give our team a call to discuss items you would like to have a look at or find the show site at http://www.mobilityroadshow.co.uk/.  Billed as The original, biggest and best possible showcase of mobility and lifestyle products and services in the UK (June 30 – July 2), the show is free entry for you and for your car so do come and see us.

The Drive Through Experience

We don’t think that there is an equivalent here in the UK but maybe you know better… have you ever come across a mobility scooter drive through take away – they do things differently in Australia! http://www.frasercoastchronicle.com.au/story/2011/06/21/drive-through-coffee-hit-with-scooter-drivers/.

We can at least tell you that if one does open we can supply you with cup holders for your scooters but perhaps better to opt for the cold drinks – which we will need if this week’s scorcher turns out to be an example of the summer to come.

In the meantime we look forward to seeing you at the Mobility Roadshow later this week or if not call our customer services team on 0800 046 3949 who will be more than happy to help.

Best wishes

Lighter Evenings and Longer Days

Friday, June 10th, 2011 by morethan

One of the team is just back from a combined business and visiting family trip to Scotland.  Sadly the weather was grey and a bit misty during the day but the evening brightened up – she reports sitting in the garden at 10.30 in the evening and not needing lights.  Those long light evenings she reports make the winters more bearable because for months on end it feels like the day is stretched out, people can do so much more with an evening (apparently golf is played deep into the gloaming …) and families can make so much more of their time together.

Fortunately we have lots of things to help you make the most of the summer days and evenings – whether you are out and about or at home.

The Drive Medical Sport Rider 8mph mobility scooter is a glamorous new addition to our mobility scooter range.  It’s a top end model with a captains seat and head-rest, range of 31 miles + and user weight up to 28 stone.  It is so good looking that it looks like it belongs in a road trip movie with Dennis Hopper!  Some of our team are not quite old enough to remember him (which we find extraordinary) but those of you who are in our own age bracket will know what we mean …

We will be taking a Drive Medical Sport Rider Mobility Scooter to the Peterborough Mobility Roadshow so if you are visiting do come along and have a look. This has been a very popular mobility scooter launch so stock has pretty much sold out – we expect our next batch in mid July so if you want to pre order to reserve one do give us a call now or pop along to Stand C6 indoors at the Mobility Roadshow (Thursday June 30 – Saturday July 2, 2011).  Manufacturers rules are that we have to put “call for price” but if you call us and we will give you a firm quote.

If you are not venturing quite so far afield we have some great offers on now:-

  • Rumba Powerchair is on a special for June at only £1,499.  Part of Sunrise Medical’s range of powerchairs it is a good option if you need to fold the powerchair up for transportation.  Give the team a call now if you would like more information.
  • Travelite Transit Wheelchair:  also very popular at this time of year are lightweight wheelchairs which families can take along on trips – if you have not had a look do check out our Travelite Transit Wheelchair in a bag price at £125; which is proving to be a bestseller.  The wheelchair packs up neatly into a strong carry holdall. 18” seat and other dimensions can be viewed by clicking here.

However you are spending your time we hope that you are enjoying the lighter evenings.  Remember that we have very keen pricing on rise and recline chairs with the Lars Dual Motor in Leather available in a variety of colours for just £699 including courier delivery.  So out and about or feet up at home we will be delighted to help find just the right thing for you,

Best wishes
