I highly recommend him for any special needs!

I wanted to thank Mike for this past holiday weekend. My husband, myself and my stepson were flying into St Louis for my son’s wedding. My stepson is in a power wheelchair and I was concerned about transportation during the visit. Mike was so helpful over the phone and helped relieve some of my concerns prior to the trip. Mike picked us up at the airport, explained all about the van and then took us back to the airport when we left. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help us transport my stepson. I highly recommend him for any special needs! Thanks again Mike!

Mike Is A Pleasure To Work With

I can’t say enough good things about Mike Flotken and the service he provides. My wife and I are former customers of Mobility for U in which we were dealing with a great aunt who was getting older and not sure footed but still wanted to go out. We found Mike a pleasure to deal with, showing us the process of how his van’s worked and being centrally located really helped. I can’t imagine struggling to take out seniors anymore, I have recommended Mike to everyone I know and found him very easy to deal with personally and professionally.

WOW—Time Certainly Passes Quickly

We will be celebrating our 7 Year Anniversary soon and Mobility for U® continues to grow. I never thought that this service would grow into such an important transportation company, but we continue to offer new services to an ever-expanding family of customers. But, more importantly, Mobility for U® has given me the privilege to meet so many wonderful and compassionate people. From nurses in the various hospitals, to caregivers in the assisted living centers to independent contractors who perform services to our seniors and people with special needs, everyone is so willing to give assistance and worthwhile advice. I am truly proud to be a member of this wonderful group.

Perfect Solution to a Challenging Problem

I needed to transport a wheelchair bound woman on short notice on a weekend. I called several places without any results. Mobility for U was referred to me by another rental company and when I called, I spoke to Mike. He was courteous, friendly and accommodating. I was able to rent the handicap accessible van within hours. The van itself was immaculate and provided an extremely comfortable ride for all involved. I would recommend Mike’s company to any individual or organization that has periodic needs for transportation of wheelchair bound individuals. Perfect solution to a challenging problem for handicapped individuals.

Pay It Forward

Thanks to the ingenuity of people and companies around the world our seniors, loved ones with special needs and veterans have more mobility than ever before. New wheelchairs, scooters and other devices allow people to climb stairs, enjoy the outdoors, cruise the oceans and experience things that were never accessible to them before. BUT, we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of Equal Access.   And, we the people who are fortunate and don’t need these aids must become more aware of the remaining barriers that remain. I see so many people who won’t hold open a door for a person in a wheelchair, or help reach an item on an upper shelf in a retail store or help a person with their coat or help rearrange a table in a restaurant. I believe that everyone should spend a day in a wheelchair—then they would understand how difficult life can be. It only takes a moment to perform an act of kindness to a person who may not even ask for it.

He also gave us a Veteran’s discount for my father’s Navy service

My father broke his leg less than a month before a 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. I was frantically trying to decide if we should still have the party and if we do, what were my options on how to get my parents to the event. I contacted Mike, who walked me through the process of renting one of his custom vans. His calm demeanor gave me the peace of mind I needed. He was so nice, flexible, and professional. My parents were so pleased, we used Mobility for U for the next four months until his death, to take him to his doctor appointments. He had the transportation benefit from Medicare we could have used, but it was very impersonal. With Mobility for U, we were able to take him to Red Lobster and SAM’s, etc., since we were in St. Louis anyway. He also gave us a Veteran’s discount for my father’s Navy service. I highly recommend Mobility Mike for all your mobility needs.

He made my parents feel much more relaxed about traveling

Mike is spectacular. He drove my parents to and from the airport. On the way to the airport, he brought them in, helped with their luggage and stayed with them until TSA showed up to help my dad out of his wheelchair and to their gate. On the way home, Mike met them at the baggage claim, drove them home, and helped them bring their luggage inside. He made my parents feel much more relaxed about traveling.

He did all of this at an incredibly reasonable price.

I would absolutely refer anyone to Mike. He is amazing!
