Celebrating 10 years of mobility
After 10 years serving the people of the Manawatu, Mobility Manawatu on Ruahine Street is undergoing a freshen-up. However, while their shop frontage and logo may be new everything else remains the same. Still independent and locally owned and operated by Rob and Letitia Stick, Mobility Manawatu continues to provide quality products to assist with mobility and other health-related issues, along with technical backup and friendly, professional advice.
To celebrate 10 years, Mobility Manawatu has a number of events and promotions planned for the coming months, beginning with a draw for a $100 grocery voucher giveaway for any purchase made in full, during February. Also planned for February is a ‘Scooter Shine Up’ day on Friday February 26.
Rob Stick says: ‘‘This is our chance to give something back to the community. People can bring their mobility scooter down here between 10am and 2pm and we’ll give it a clean and polish at no charge. There will also be refreshments available for people while they wait for their scooter.’’
Another event in February is the ‘Show your Ability’ Expo coming to Arena Manawatu on Thursday February 25, where there will be a display of the huge variety and types of equipment and aids available for people who need help with their mobility. The expo runs from 9am until 3pm and entry is free.
In March, Mobility Manawatu will be at the Central Districts Field Days where they will have a selection of their latest golf cruisers, scooters and tilt carriers, along with other accessories such as the new tilt motorcycle carrier.
‘‘These tilt carriers are purposely designed to carry farm bikes and scooters and, as they attach to the back of your vehicle, you can transport your motorbike without needing lifts, ramps or hoists to get them into the back of a van or ute,’’ says Rob.
Mobility Manawatu will also have a number of loan scooters at the Field Days but as Rob says, that because of demand, these will need to be pre-booked through Letitia.
For a number of years Rob has been providing free training and safety advice to scooter riders and this year he plans on increasing the number of training opportunities for clubs and rest homes. There are currently scooter groups in Levin, Palmerston North, Feilding and Whanganui. So if you want to find out more about scooter safety or how to contact a scooter group, give Letitia a call on (06) 3577943.
Mobility Manawatu celebrates 10 years with a new logo and signage for their shop at 222 Ruahine Street.
