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!

Celebrating My Mother-In-Laws 81st Birthday

We reserved a van for my mother in law 3 times in December to celebrate her 81st birthday. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the first 2 times because she was ill. Mike was so understanding and nice despite one of the cancellations being the day of the reservations. When we finally were able to use the van to take her out, it was FANTASTIC! Mike went over everything we needed to know, and the van was in excellent condition. We loved the ease of driving the van ourselves, therefore having flexibility of when we picked her up and dropped her off. We have used several other services in St. Louis with their own drivers and have had to wait to be picked up. I highly recommend Mobility For U®! THANKS MIKE!!!

Wonderful Service!

We were in a pinch over the holidays when our van’s lift wouldn’t work. Mike told us he had a van, but it was only available for one day. We were hoping to use the van for more than just one day, so he gave us the phone number of a competitor to see if they could help us instead. It was more important to Mike that we get the van we needed than for him to get our business.

The competitor had no vans, so we used one of Mike’s vans for the day. It was clean and perfectly maintained and worked beautifully, even in the cold weather in late December. Mike provided wonderful service, and we would happily use him again.

Simple Life Pleasures Like Going For Ice Cream

Mobility Mike makes renting a minivan with a lift so easy. My sister and I took our 97-year-old mother out to shop, have lunch, and get her hair cut. We took her driving around to see her old house and places she missed. We visited her husband’s grave and more. We did some sad things but very important to her at this stage of her life. It was a treat for her and we had fun going for an ice cream. Simple life pleasures! Mike also suggested resources to help us find a new residence for our mother. We were then able to rent a van a second time to take her to see the new options for her housing. She was able then to give input instead of having her daughters choose for her. The vans are easy to drive, park, and handle. Mike provides a service that should be in every city! It’s been a pleasure, Mike, and thank you for your passion in helping those in need. We are hoping to rent from you again!

This Has Been a Journey

Words cannot begin to express the emotional ties that I have for Mobility for U® and our clients.  The transportation service that we have developed brings seniors and people with special needs closer to their families and allows them to continue to experience all that life offers. Throughout our 6 ½ year history, Mobility for U® has been asked to provide many, varied transportation services to people who otherwise would not be able to attend their family’s weddings, reunions, birthday parties of their grandchildren, tour our magnificent country, or just go out to lunch with their friends. I only wish that I could convince the families of our seniors, loved ones, and veterans not confine these friends and family members to nursing home communities and assisted living centers. We are all Social Beings—all of us need social interaction and stimulation. Please join me and let them know that they are not forgotten or abandoned.

One Check off The Bucket List

An extremely wonderful man wanted to fulfill one of his father’s last wishes. The wish was visiting the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.  So, I worked with several vendors to help make his Dad’s wish come true. We finalized the arrangements for the son to drive one of our Mobility for U® vans to our nation’s capital. It was truly a heartwarming experience meeting these wonderful people.

We Have So Much To Be Thankful For

Thank you, Mike, for your kind thoughts about my dad’s death.  I’m sad but so appreciative of the loving, remarkable, supportive, curious, and long-living guy he was.

You helped give his life extra dimension in his last years.  Many a trip—not just for doctor appointments and other necessary errands, but to family festivities and expeditions to Ted Drewes.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We all have so much to be thankful for.
