Making a visit to the VA Hospital in Seattle, I happened to be sitting next to a gentleman in a wheelchair missing his right arm and leg. We got into conversation and I found out he lost them in Desert Storm in the early 90’s.
As most men do we got to talking about what we do, and I told him I was in the “Emergency Roadside” business. Right away he shared that he had used a service like that a few weeks before, and it worked fine picking up his van, except that it left him stranded on the side of the road. I was shocked by this. He stated he had to wait for his wife to come pick him up after a couple of hours. Fortunately, he was able to make it to a safe place in small strip mall nearby in his power wheelchair.
Our conversation ended when he left for his appointment. Another gentleman sitting just across from us in his wheelchair overheard us talking and said that that was one of his greatest fears. He was concerned about his young family, saying he could take care of himself, but what about his wife and three children.
Well, that really got my wheels turning, and as I researched the internet for something that would help veterans with these kinds of needs, I found nothing with a nationwide reach, and knew I had to develop something that provided paratransit and well as the normal emergency roadside benefit.
I also found in my research that there are at least 4.5 million people in the United States alone in wheelchairs and scooters, followed by another 50+ million that have a disability sticker in or on their vehicles, many whom could benefit from this kind of help.
Seeing a great need, I started researching how I could help and found only one provider willing to take on the risk. Since then we have rescued hundreds of people and their families who find themselves stuck on the side of the road and in need of Mobility Roadside Assistance™. We have received countless thank you letters from people who would have otherwise been left stranded on the side of the road as that gentleman I met at the VA Hospital in Seattle was. We find immense pride and satisfaction knowing that we have helped make a difference in assuring people’s safety in their own time of need.
The rest of the story is still being written…
