Driving Profits via Mobility Scooter Rentals
If you own or manage a business or organization that is reliant on or caters to foot traffic, you have a disadvantage in competing for the business of the approximately 17 million Americans who, according to the National Institute of Health1 , are unable to walk more than a quarter of a mile.
This group represents a sizable stream of potential revenue. US Department of Labor research2 shows that almost 18% of all U.S. households have at least one person with a disability and these households represent $175 billion in discretionary spending power. This is more than double the spending of the highly sought-after teenage buyer, for example.
What’s more, this is a very loyal market: 70 percent of people with disabilities prefer to buy from retailers that support people with disabilities3. When you add the fact that this is a growing audience—Baby Boomers are entering an age where they can benefit from a scooter and can afford to buy what they want—you understand what an attractive market this group represents.
What better way to serve this audience while increasing the revenue potential of your business by making mobility scooters available to the mobility impaired? Whether your business is an entertainment destination considering a fleet of mobility scooters or a retail environment seeking to have one or two mobility scooters on hand which your customers can borrow, American Mobility Services can help you select the right mobility scooter for your unique needs.
We work with companies and organizations across a wide variety of events or destinations where an optimal user experience is key to customer satisfaction, loyalty and revenue. We sell and lease Pride Mobility scooters which focus on durability, simplicity and affordability for the budget-conscious as well as full-featured offerings that come with all the bells and whistles that appeal to well-heeled customers. Moreover, the design of these scooters is forward-thinking and enable lifestyles imbued with an attitude of capability and empowerment.
“Scooters have now become products that aren’t so medical looking,” says Kristen Imperiale of Pride Mobility. “They don’t have that stigma, so it’s much more acceptable for somebody to be going away on a vacation and running around on a scooter.”
When it comes to our volume or fleet purchase customers, our goal is to match the right scooter or power chair with your typical customer or visitor. And to make sure we can provide the very best pricing based upon your fleet requirements.
The most popular models we sell for volume purchase from Pride Mobility are the Victory 10 and the Revo 2.0. The Victory 10 combines style with comfort in a feature-rich and highly versatile mobility scooter with a lengthy 15.5 mile/four hour4 operation range. The Revo 2.0 offers rugged dependability, unparalleled stability and ease-of-use with a similarly lengthy 15.5 mile/four hour operating range.
In addition to offering these state-of-the-art mobility scooters at volume pricing, we also offer Fleet Buyers additional levels of service which increase the return-on-investment and profitability of offering mobility scooters to their customers:
Marketing Communications Assistance – concerns about “getting around” at an event or facility keep people with impaired mobility from even considering some retail, business or entertainment destinations. We help you strategize on the best messages and communications vehicles to this audience you have a solution for their special needs.
Scooter Fleet Rentals – is your need to cater to this audience intermittent? Perhaps you host an annual event with a high percentage of mobility-challenged individuals in attendance? We will rent a fleet of scooters along with a trained attendant to assure there are no usage problems.
Fleet Maintenance Program – nothing impacts mobility scooter ROI like downtime. To this end, we can provide a trained technician to maintain or repair any of the scooters and power chairs we provide. We can arrange on-site maintenance or swap-out programs so your customers are always offered mobility vehicles in top condition.
