Mobility City offers one-of-a-kind mobile cleaning, repair, rental, and maintenance for wheelchairs, power-chairs, scooters, lift-out chairs, and other mobility aids. It offers its services to hospitals, veterans, seniors, and disabled people of all ages. Their franchisees are supported through training, marketing and a commitment to help them grow.
Mobility City now offers a franchise model for under $100,000 for the solo entrepreneur. Built on the same pillars of success as the Mobility City top-100 MSA franchise, Mobility City is introducing, Tech-in-a-Truck (TNT) as the only franchise of its type, serving those with mobility needs by covering rural counties and states in America.
“Our strategy centers on repairing, renting, selling, and sanitizing wheelchairs for mobility-impaired individuals as a springboard to obtaining a customer for life. We adhere to the same Pledge of Excellent Service as our top-100 MSA franchisees. Where TNT differs is in territory size. Each geographic area is larger, and there is no showroom nor associated overhead required to service a rural territory,” said Diane Baratta, CEO, Mobility City.
“TNT delivers the same level of mobility product service as Mobility City to greying Americans where they reside. There are operational differences, however. For example, a workshop on wheels with an inventory of parts is required, territories encompass larger geography with a max population of 400,000, and service call prices reflect the longer drives,” said Vincent Baratta, COO, Mobility City.
“We aim to serve more American veterans, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted and independent living centers, and senior centers with the expansion that the TNT footprint will deliver,” added Diane Baratta.
To budding franchisees looking for a remarkable opportunity, this is the ticket! This opportunity is part of the hottest trend business model of All-In. An investment of $92,000 covers all fees, inventory, and a truck purchase.
Mobility City’s business model is set to meet the needs of the 98 million elderly American citizens forecasted for 2022, according to the U.S. Census, the “The Graying of America.” It is estimated that 10,000 people per day turn 65. In addition to that:
- 48.5 million people are disabled in the U.S. (encompassing obesity, degenerative diseases, accidents and recovering surgical patients).
- 46.7 million people live independently outside of institutions and use a mobility device.
- Around 10 million veterans are users of mobility equipment.
- $6.8 billion in annual sales are projected for the mobility devices market.
- Over 2 million NEW wheelchair/scooter users added every year.
Mobility City’s TNT model is positioned to meet the needs of this ever-growing senior population. What makes it even more attractive is the TNT model delivers onsite service, which today, that means everything. For a franchisee, TNT is a work-from-home model. The benefits of the
TNT model include:
- The Workshop-on-Wheels is a Nissan NV2500 SV truck, which carries parts to service most products
- Owner/Operated or Owner/employee of the skilled technician on board
- Multiple Services: repairs, rentals, sanitizing and catalog sales
- Low Overhead: No showroom necessary
The all-in low start-up fees are what makes this franchise opportunity most attractive. Here is an example of those start-up fees:
- Nissan NV2500 SV Truck includes buildout complete with a power inverter, shelving, driver partition, rubber flooring, paneled walls, external decal wrap, tent, and signage. Purchase price $39,500, Finance: $3000 down, $650.00/month. Based on a 650+ credit score.
- Also included are: Tools $500, Steam cleaner $1,000, Inventory and parts $15,000, Training in FLL $2,000, Misc. (uniforms, printing, phones, iPad) $5,000
- All-in fee drops substantially when you lease a truck. That is a $36,000 savings.
