A Specialized Roadside Assistance and At-Home Service Program for Wheelchair Users

Phoenix, AZ (June 4, 2019) – Getting stranded with a vehicle broken down is an inconvenience for the average driver, but for a driver or passenger with mobility challenges, it can be much more than an inconvenience. Safety concerns and the fear of getting stuck on the road are major pain points for those who travel in wheelchairs. Unfortunately, most roadside service or repair companies aren’t typically equipped to assist with getting accessible vehicles back on the road, and they’re especially not prepared to assist individuals with mobility challenges using the accessible vehicle. That’s why Vantage Mobility International (VMI), a leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles, is partnering with Mobility Roadside Assistance™ (MRA) and At-Home Service™ provided by Wrench, Inc. to deliver the VMI Assurance program—an exclusive solution offered by VMI.

The article goes on to say:

MRA’s specialized service also includes troubleshooting with a mobility technician, service for the accessible vehicle’s wheelchair lift or ramp, as well as tire repair and/or replacement. MRA will also provide all the standard roadside services such as towing, vehicle jump starts, emergency fuel and vehicle lockouts.

“This partnership furthers VMI’s commitment to empower people with disabilities by giving them more options and greater confidence to live an independent lifestyle,” said Mark Shaughnessy, CEO of VMI. “When our customers purchase an accessible vehicle from VMI, AMS Vans or Revability, we want our customers to feel assured that we will do everything possible to provide the best ownership experience for many years to come.

”VMI/AMS Vans/Revability customers will get MRA’s roadside assistance membership for one year. They will receive a personal MRA ID card and access to all the benefits at no cost to them. VMI will begin rollout of the VMI Assurance program in July, beginning with its Signature Dealer Network.
