“We are extremely excited about now being able to offer our customers the opportunity to rent a wheelchair accessible vehicle through our Beltsville, MD location,” Sul Allyn, General Manager of Ride-Away’s Beltsville location said. “Ride-Away is a company that is committed to providing the highest quality products and service in the industry, and now with the addition of our rental service, we are now able to provide our customers with more mobility options than they had before.”

Ride-Away understands that our customers have unique situations that require diverse rental needs, and with their wide range of mobility options, they are able to accommodate almost any request. Their wheelchair accessible van rental program offers various floor plan options for specifications so that we can accommodate different passenger and driver set-up’s, pick-up and delivery services so that you don’t have to worry about how you are going to pick-up and drop off your wheelchair accessible rental vehicle, 24-hour road side assistance so that you feel comfortable know that we will be there to help with any service needs around the clock, and third party billing to make paying for your wheelchair accessible vehicle simpler.

“Ride-Away has looked to add this service to our Maryland location for quite some time now,” Rick Mellor, Ride-Away’s Rental Manager said. “With the population of Maryland being over 5.7 million, I am more than certain this Rental service will be beneficial to our customers in more ways than one.”
As a part of Ride-Away’s corporate culture, they believe in providing you with not only the highest quality products and service, but many options and considerations as well. When renting a wheelchair accessible van, there are many more things to take into consideration than if you were renting a non-modified car or van. Your safety is Ride-Away’s biggest concern, which is why their employees will make sure that you have considered things like will the person in the wheelchair be driving the vehicle, and if so, are they licensed to operate a wheelchair van and the equipment that will be provided, the number of occupants that will be in the vehicle, and are there any special medical requirements that the person in the wheelchair has so that we can accommodate their needs.
This is a part of Ride-Away’s “Try Before You Buy” program. A customer can rent a wheelchair accessible vehicle, and try it before buying it. “Ride-Away believes that people with disabilities should have access to travel both at home and while traveling,” Mark Lore of President/CEO of Ride-Away said. “We pride ourselves on our flexibility when unexpected situations arise and we are very accommodating to fit our customer’s needs.” Each day, Ride-Away continues strive to make improvements in the products and services we offer our customers.
