Mobility retail chain Eden Mobility has opened its doors to customers affected by the recent closure of rival firm Yorkshire Mobility.
Yorkshire Mobility, the trading name of Hartmond Limited, which also operated The Mobility Partnership, Trade Mobility and Value Mobility, ceased trading back in March.
As reported by Access & Mobility Professional this week, some stock and assets belonging to the defunct retailer have already been snapped up from the administrators.
However, the closure of its four shops in the Yorkshire region will have come as a blow to customers – leading Eden Mobility to step in and offer its services.
In a notice posted on its website, Eden said it “welcomes” all previous Yorkshire Mobility customers.
“Yorkshire Mobility was a mobility company with shops in Hull, Beverley, Hornsea and Hedon – providing a range of products and services similar to ourselves. Yorkshire Mobility has ceased trading, so we’d like to take this opportunity to welcome any existing Yorkshire Mobility customers into our open arms,” it stated.
16 of Eden Mobility’s UK showrooms are based in Yorkshire.
Eden Mobility said it would also be able to assist customers in need of maintenance support or who were on the Motability scheme through the company.
“If you have a product such as a mobility scooter or powerchair with them, we’ll happily continue performing tasks such as servicing and repairs. If you currently have a mobility scooter on the Motability scheme with them, we’ll certainly be able to help you in all aspects,” it said.
Eden Mobility has been trading for almost 20 years under the management of founders David Hughes and Karl Howe. They initially focused the business around scooters, powerchairs and stairlifts, building up a reputation for fast and efficient after-care service.
