MoveMobility likes to hear the feedback about our vehicles from our clients that work in different occupations. We took a trip to Sagkeeng First Nation Health Centre and Sagkeeng First Nation Daycare Centre to learn more about the drivers and communities experience with the Dodge Promaster. It’s been great working with the Sagkeeng First Nation community!

Why have you chosen to partner with MoveMobility? What would you say to someone or a company that is looking for a van? How have you found MoveMobility as a company – the customer service, the buying and delivery process?
Simon Jones was the reason we chose to partner with MoveMobility. Our business is running more efficiently because of MoveMobility. Medical patients like the accessible vehicles, it’s very comfortable for them. Now we are able to better streamline our transportation process within our community. We have a better organized process in place because we have the ability to drive more people around to appointments or events that are important to them.
How has your experience been with Simon Jones?
We developed a great partnership with Simon Jones, his dedication to what was important to us shined through to the delivery of your vehicles. We appreciated his attention to detail to bringing our transportation business to life.
Do you believe that in the long-term, the vehicle has been a cost effective solution?
The Promaster has better fuel economy which is a huge indicator why we keep coming back to MoveMobility, we have saved money in the long run. There’s been no major repairs so far. We’ve just had routine maintenance repairs (oil changes and winter tires).
Is the flexible floor in your Promaster vehicles an advantage to you and the program you run?
The drivers enjoy the flexible seating options, it doesn’t waste time like the other seats in our older vehicles. The seats easily fit in and take out without putting much thought into it.
What has the Sagkeeng First Nation Daycare Centre said about the vehicle?
The children and parents need the vehicle. Without it, their children wouldn’t be able to participate in any of the programs available in their community. Trips are a very big deal to the kids, they look forward to going on the trips.
Will Sagkeeng First Nation Health Centre be looking to add more Promaster vans or mobility accessible vehicles in the future?
Transport isn’t always easy to plan and manage when you have a limited quantity of vehicles in the fleet. We know the vehicles that work for us, the Dodge Promaster, which meets the busy schedule of our clients daily and its performance level has been incomparable to any vehicles we’ve had before! Yes, we will be looking to add more Promaster vehicles in the future!
