MobilityWorks Hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New Oakland Facility to Help People With Disabilities Find Mobility Solutions
Date:11/9/2013

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) November 09, 2013

MobilityWorks held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, November 8th for its new mobility van and equipment dealership located in Oakland. Mayor Jean Quan and City Councilmember Noel Gallo were on hand, along with representatives of various organizations in the community who serve people with physical challenges and disabled veterans. The van showroom, service bays, reception area and staff offices are housed in a newly renovated 14,000 sq. ft. facility are located at 1822 Embarcadero in an area known as Embarcadero Cove.

“We feel very fortunate to be able to help the people of the Bay Area who need our products and services. We have been successful in other regions because clients appreciate having a local provider that can meet with them in person and understands their needs.” said Mark Magnus, MobilityWorks of Oakland General Manager.

A special attraction at the event was a wheelchair accessible motorcycle that brings wind-in-your-hair excitement to people with disabilities. Activities included a raffle, refreshments, equipment demonstrations and more.

With the addition of a new Oakland store, MobilityWorks now has 30 showrooms in 12 states. Eight of the locations are in California. The local showrooms and service centers are important to the community and allow MobilityWorks to fit specific equipment tailored to the end user in a van. This is especially important if the person with a disability plans to drive independently with the use of alternative driver control systems. The vans also require specially trained technicians for routine maintenance and repair.

“MobilityWorks employs specially trained Certified Mobility Consultants to help explain and demonstrate all of the options we have available,” added Mr. Magnus. “It’s important that they experience the products in person before making a decision to purchase. It’s a very critical step that you can’t duplicate by reading something on the internet.”

MobilityWorks’ store hours will initially be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with Saturday scheduling available by appointment. The public is invited come in and ask questions at any time during regular business hours. To meet with a consultant, visitors can call the local number at (510) 927-3187 to schedule an appointment.
