Wheelchair Special Needs Transportation
Companies that provide transportation options for those with a physical disability will make it easier for them to get around for everyday living.
Companies that sell manual and power wheelchairs, scooters, and lifts will have to meet strict guidelines the government has in place. They will work with medical insurance companies to help customers pay for the power chair, lift, or scooter.
Employees will want to have a background education in special needs so they can help their customers to be the most comfortable while in transit. They will help find the best equipment for their handicap. Employees will need to know how to work a power wheelchair, handicap van, or electric lift in order to show it to their customers.
Stores will hire employees who can help install ramps and van lifts in a customer's house or vehicle. These may be contract workers, but they will have to pass background tests and training courses. Most companies will survey their customers to ensure they are satisfied with the service they received.
Special needs transportation businesses can work with public transit companies to give those with a handicap better ways to access to public transportation. This can include selling mobility wheelchairs to airports or installing lifts on buses.
Special needs transportation companies will offer repair services for any chairs, lifts, or ramps they sell to customers. Customers can give them a call to schedule an appointment, to have an employee make the necessary repairs. If repairs can't be made immediately, they will offer a replacement during the time repairs are being made.
