Last summer, a St. Louis family wanted to transport their 82-year-old, wheelchair bound grandmother from her Minneapolis home to a new permanent residence in St. Louis. Grandmother couldn’t fly because she had to position her legs out straight in front of her. The family initially contacted an air ambulance service and Mobility for U® provided the family with complete transportation service for 30% of the cost of hiring an air ambulance! They called Mobility for U® and we were up to the challenge. We sent two caregivers and one of our vans to Minneapolis and safely brought grandmother to St. Louis for thousands of dollars less than using an ambulance service and this included the hotel for the caregivers in Minneapolis, meals, gas—everything. The family was ecstatic!
The other night, I received a panic call from one of our family of customers who had to transport his 88-year-old mother to the hospital. He discovered that a local ambulance service would cost $495.00 for the service. So, our client called Mobility for U®, picked up one of our vans at 11:00 PM, drove his mom to the hospital and was only charged $135.00 and he had the van for 24-hour!
