With the economy on the rebound and aggressive rebates from manufacturers, now is the perfect time for Hasco Medical’s core vehicle businesses to help get people with disabilities back on the road.
Londonerry, NH (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Worldwide over one billion people, or approximately 15 percent, live with some form of disability. Persons with disabilities often face difficulty participating in society due to limited transportation options. Public transportation options are unreliable and often mean wait times of two hours or more, and wheelchair accessible vehicles are often too expensive for someone with a limited income to afford. Ride-Away and Mobility Freedom, subsidiaries of Hasco Medical, (symbol: HASC) are helping people with disabilities get transportation.
Starting on International Day of Persons with Disabilities, December 4, 2012, and ending on January 31st, 2013, people with disabilities have three ways they can get assistance to get back on the road. People can receive up to $6000 off select new or used wheelchair vehicles, $500 off Bruno vehicle wheelchair lifts and Bruno Valet seats, and a $25 gift card for qualified individuals who test drive one of our vehicles.
“With the economy on the rebound and aggressive rebates from manufacturers, now is the perfect time for Hasco Medical’s core vehicle businesses to help get people with disabilities back on the road. There is no better time to kick off this event than with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities,” said Hasco Medical CEO Hal Compton.
Mobility options: Wheelchair accessible minivans, trucks and motorcycles.
Available vehicles include new and used minivans that are outfitted with automatic ramps that deploy from the side of the vehicle and kneeling systems that lower the van, allowing a manual wheelchair user to get into the vehicle and drive. Also on sale are crew cab pickup trucks whose sides fully deploy on the passenger or driver side and a wheelchair accessible motorcycle.
Test Drive or Ride in a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle
To encourage people to explore the available options Ride-Away and Mobility Freedom are giving away a $25 gift card to everyone who schedules a test drive, even if they are a passenger. All you have to do is set an appointment at http://www.ride-away.com/test-drive. As long as the customer is located within 15 miles of a store, a Ride-Away or Mobility Freedom Mobility Consultant will drive the vehicle that best fits the person’s needs for a personalized test drive at their home.
Often a modification to a person’s car or SUV is sufficient to get them back on the road. Ride-Away and Mobility Freedom are providing an industry first $500 instant discount on most Bruno Valet Plus seats and Bruno Lifts that can be retrofitted to many existing vehicles. Mobility Consultants can provide information on which solutions properly fit the person’s disability and vehicle type.
Ride-Away and Mobility Freedom hope that by increasing awareness and offering best-in-class incentives, individuals with disabilities will have the opportunity to experience the incredible freedom of wheelchair accessible transportation options.
