A well-known face on the mobility circuit, Richard Bate has long championed Motability and what it stands for.
Through Easy Living Mobility, he is pushing and upholding the high standards which impact well on the mobility industry.
Motability can be a key driving force for any retailer and Richard has taken it upon himself to ensure that the mobility provider secures strong sales through this channel.
He is an advocate for the scheme and the pressure it places on industry suppliers to meet the demands that it presents.
“For the market as a whole it has set a decent standard for everyone, which is needed in this industry,” he says.
“You’ve got a lot of, I don’t want to say cowboys, but you have a lot of these small dealerships that are abusing the position they’re in. And this market absolutely needs that level of care and service otherwise you shouldn’t be in the industry.”
In his efforts to make the mobility market a fairer place for everyone to compete in and to improve the experience for the end-user, Richard is helping to ensure that Easy Living Mobility remains one of the UK’s primary retailers of lightweight wheelchairs, powerchairs and seating solutions.
