Give a Christmas Gift that is useful this year!

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011 by morethan

Yes it is that time of the year again and the run up to Christmas.  Where has the year gone?   To help you with finding the right mobility product gift ideas for your friends and family we have launched our Christmas Gifts Ideas area which will support you to find a gift that is both useful and practical.

We have such a wide range of mobility products that will make fantastically useful Christmas Gifts that we have had to select just a small number to feature in this week’s blog.  Overall with the economy and tight budgets all around we have looked for great value mobility gifts that will be useful all year round and really appreciated by the recipients – something useful that will last is our rule of thumb.

We have split our Christmas Gifts into Under £10, Under £25 and Under £50.  We have also included some Over £50 gift ideas and if the family wants to club together for a larger item (perhaps a rise and recline chair) do call us if you want to split the bill – we can easily arrange it for you.

All products under £100 will also have a post and packaging charge.  If you are ordering several items just give us a call on 0800 046 3949 and we will try and keep those charges down by grouping them into one delivery for you.  Please do give us as much time as possible for your orders as although we will be despatching right up to a few days before Christmas we know how busy the carriers get and we don’t want to disappoint!

Best wishes

Remembrance Sunday and Rise & Recline Chairs

Thursday, November 17th, 2011 by morethan

So we are well into November.  The clocks have gone back (remember Spring forward, Fall back) and Remembrance Sunday is just past.

One of our team, last weekend, attended an outdoor service at the local war memorial near to her home.  Whether by design (we hope so) or circumstance the planes that usually roar overhead were nowhere to be seen and as 11 o’clock struck and the officials stopped the traffic on the busy south circular there was a perfect silence on a cold clear day.

A still moment when the younger attendees, of whom there were many, would have thought more naturally of the victims of Afghanistan or Iraq but the older contingent would still be remembering uncles or perhaps grandfathers who fought in the World Wars. 

The march past, with a small group of local veterans (eye’s right) was as moving as the long parade at the Cenotaph  – perhaps even more so because these men are neighbours, briefly seen in a different context as they lined up and marched, straightened up as their long ago training kicked in.  In the mobility business we are very conscious of the impact that injuries have – whether sustained in war, accidents or through health conditions and this time of the year strengthens our commitment to provide the best possible service we can.

As usual here at More Than Mobility we have been collecting for the Poppy appeal and, as discussed with customers, we do not move on to Christmas promotions until the nation has paid its respects.  Now we move on and in the months ahead will be highlighting some of the other charities we support.

May we remind you of the awful weather last year?  Now that you have are you thinking of the thick snow and ice that was with us through December  … can we ask you to cast an eye over the following great products and offers … and order as soon as possible so that we can get your goods delivered before any storms or Christmas rush.
