There was music, fun and festivities in early December as Glasgow-based disability support charity, Community Lifestyles prepared to set off for their annual trip to visit the bright lights of Blackpool. For the third consecutive year, they enlisted Allied Mobility’s help in getting the show on the road by renting a trio of roomy FlexiLite™ minibuses. The Allied Mobility accessible vehicle hire team were of course happy to help. When the big day arrived, we popped along to wave them off and caught up with support manager, Yvonne Anderson to find out what it is about Allied Mobility that keeps them coming back.
Along with supporting people with disabilities on a day to day basis, Community Lifestyles also host regular breaks away for their service users and carers. With no accessible vehicles of their own, they turn to Allied Mobility to provide accessible vehicles for hire. Having investigated a number of other rental providers, Allied Mobility’s wide variety of accessible vehicles, combined with top class service at competitive prices was music to the ears of the budget-conscious charity.
Yvonne explains: “We always need accessible vehicles for people who have restricted mobility when we arrange our trips away. Securing a hire company at a low cost is essential as it saves a lot of money and is much more convenient than having to travel by bus or train.”
A Company to Rely On
Since first getting in touch three years ago, the staff at Community Lifestyles have become familiar faces, arranging hires of a range of accessible cars every two months or so. From days out in the local area to longer trips away, Allied Mobility Hire is ready to help whenever they’re needed. For Yvonne, having a company she knows she can rely on is essential to help make the company’s trips run smoothly.
Yvonne says: “I cannot praise the hire team enough, they have bent over backwards to provide us with what we need, sometimes at very short notice! They’re always so very helpful, extremely patient and understanding of our needs.”
A Firm Favourite
On the day of departure, Christmas had truly come early for the lucky guests as the convoy of seasonally decorated FlexiLite™ minibuses headed for Blackpool. As they disappeared from view, Yvonne was able to stop for a quick breather before planning for the next trip begins. While there will no doubt be a lot to organise, she’s at least sure of one thing, that she’ll be coming back when it’s time to secure the vehicles.
Yvonne quips: “After using Allied Mobility Hire, I simply would not use any other company.”
We’ll see you soon then, Yvonne!
