Scooter or Powerchair?
Mobility scooters are designed for people who do not have the required strength or ability to walk or operate a manual wheelchair. They are battery powered and may have three or four wheels. Unlike power chairs, mobility scooters are steered by tillers. There are three main types of mobility scooters: travel/portable, three-wheel and four-wheel.
There are many different types of power chairs, and selecting the correct one for the user is very important for his/her comfort and well-being. The controller (joystick and keypad in most cases) attaches to the armrest and is connected to the power base. Typically, power wheelchairs come with two larger wheels (called “drive wheels”—the motor is connected to these) and two to four casters which help with stability. The drive wheels may be located in the front, middle or rear of the chair and depending on where the power wheelchair is used; one drive system may be more suitable than another.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Just a brief note to thank you and your staff. We LOVE our new elevator! We thought we would use it primarily to get Bill’s Mom and her wheelchair/walker into & around the house, but have found we’re using it on a daily basis just to avoid the stairs. In our very tall house (even though we are quite capable of using the stairs) it’s just so much more convenient and it’s already hard to imagine the house without the elevator! Please pass along our “thanks” to your folks who worked with us on the design and actual installation. They were ALL extremely courteous, knowledgeable, helpful and just nice folks. Despite the many construction delays on our part, that pushed the project out longer than anticipated, your folks were great throughout the process. You all made this a very positive experience for us.

Eastern Elevators Co. installed our home elevator in Early 2015. During installation and on routine service calls since that time, Eastern Elevator’s technicians and staff have displayed an outstanding level of professionalism and a strong sense of customer service. At the office, Ray and Erin have been great, responding promptly to any inquiry or service request. When service has been needed, the field technical team, including Cody, Ryan, and Shawn, are knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The bottom line: customers can rely on the Eastern Elevator team to install a reliable product and to keep it operating efficiently.

First I am so sorry I cannot remember the name of the young lady who assisted myself and my nephew in selecting a scooter for my use. She was so well prepared with information to answer our questions, if we asked something she did not have the answer she immediately called Pride and got the answers we needed. We found her to be interested in our needs not in just selling us something. We found the scooter at cheaper price but I wanted to support our local business and she made the decision even easier with her great personality and very caring manner. I have and will continue up to tell people about your Pride Scooter sales and your outstanding sales person.

What an incredible showroom!! The staff here is wonderful and friendly. And the Elevator Mechanics are so knowledgeable. My parents are stopping in just to see the working elevators for the home they are having built in VA. Super excited.
