Accommodating Winter Roads

The Wheelchair Accessible Promasters were completed in a very short space of time. This was due to the requirement for the vans to be driven across Manitoba’s winter roads. Because of the remote location of some northern communities, these basic access routes cross many types of landscape: muskeg, rivers, lakes, and streams. The winter roads are expected to close early this year, meaning our team at MoveMobility worked hard [...]

 

A few weeks ago, the team here at MoveMobility celebrated a special acheivement! We congratulated our Production Team on completing the Wheelchair Accessible Modification on our 200th Promaster van, with all 200 being completed in a very short of space of time! A massive Thank You goes to our Vehicle Modification Technicians and Production staff, who always ensure our vehicles are at the highest standards of workmanship before the van leaves Production.

As a company, MoveMobility is proud to be providing transportation solutions that simplify life for persons with disabilities. Our mission is to provide communities and organizations with the freedom and opportunity to be able to transport all of their clients with our specialized mobility equipment.

Old Man Winter brings with him many challenges. We have to remember to leave a few minutes early if the roads are bad. You’ve got to be even more conscious of other drivers on the road. Here are six things you should definitely include in your Winter Car Kit.

Share in the comments below what you include in your Winter Car Kit, and any suggestions for what you think others should include in theirs!

To Lease or to Finance?

It’s a common quandary: choosing whether to lease or to finance your wheelchair van. While both options offer several distance benefits, we’d like to take a few paragraphs to go into the benefits of choosing to lease your wheelchair van. While it’s not always the most common approach to procuring a wheelchair van, learning the ins and out of how leasing a wheelchair van can benefit you — and your wallet. For many, leasing a wheelchair van gives them a sense of freedom and less commitment than choosing to finance or outright buy a wheelchair van. If you’re curious about the benefits of choosing to lease rather than finance your wheelchair van, continue reading to learn more.

Keep Cool

This summer has been a bit milder than usual. Rarely has Winnipeg seen a day above 26°C, and that’s gotten more people outside and exploring all Manitoba has to offer. We’re big proponents of road trips, and we’ve written a bit about some of the best destinations in and around Manitoba to visit this summer.  However, before you embark on a road trip of any length (or put more miles on your wheelchair van), we’d like to offer you some helpful tips for keeping your wheelchair accessible van running smoothly and cool this summer. These maintenance tips are quick, easy ways to make sure you don’t run into any major issues down the road. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

It’s Your Van. Get The Most Out of It

 

When it comes to getting a wheelchair adapted vehicle that’s right for you, you deserve to be a little picky. Afterall, it’s your comfortable connection to all that Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the entirety of Canada have to offer. But, just how picky can you be when choosing a wheelchair van or wheelchair adapted vehicle that not only suits your needs, but gets you where you need to be in comfort and style?

When you choose MoveMobility, you’ll have plenty of wriggle room for choosing the van that’s just right for you. Why? Because MoveMobility knows you have many concerns and questions, and we offer a stock of new and new-to-you wheelchair vans that are sure to meet your needs [...]

Winnipeg is a wonderful city. From our architecture to city parks and green spaces, and from the unique restaurants and pubs to stimulating museums that make up much of our city, Winnipeg is nothing shy of an exciting city. But with the summer heat having settled in, the ‘peg can feel like a giant pizza oven well into the summer. This can be quite an annoyance (or health hazard, depending on the person and the heat levels) if you’re trying to plan action-packed days. Not that you’d have any trouble filling up these days, but the city can become overwhelming with the heat, constant movement, and loading in and unloading out of your wheelchair van. While Winnipeg is great, it’s always nice to get out of the city and into [...]

Hangin’ Around

It’s a common feeling: spring shifts to summer and ushers in a rush of excitement that warmer days and longer nights are on the way. For many, this feeling gives rise to planning summer vacations and getaways to some of Canada’s furthest reaches. And while Canada is bookended by two oceans, there are countless vacation destinations between them — and you don’t need to rely on VIA to get there! From the Atlantic to the Pacific, our country is filled with natural beauty, humans’ testaments to architecture and design, and seemingly endless history predating our arrival to the Americas. But did you know you don’t have to travel far outside of Winnipeg to experience some of Canada’s best architecture, food, fun, and natural splendor? Moreover, did you know [...]

Get Planning!

In the first part of this two-blog series, we highlighted some of our favorites tips and features for utilizing your wheelchair van to its fullest by adding some kilometres to those tires and creating even more family memories. With summer fast approaching, now’s the time to begin planning your next family adventure into Canada’s diverse countryside, our lush Pacific region, or venturing into our nearest southern neighbor’s biggest concrete jungles to take in the cityscapes’ food, drinks, culture, and sure-to-please surprises. But planning a family road trip (or a couples’ getaway) can involve much more than just routing your way around this great country. While we mentioned the importance of communicating your specific needs to any and all accommodation representatives well before you reach their respective climes, creating [...]
