Add a Preventative Maintenance Inspection to Your Holiday Check List

As you are rushing around for the holidays and getting ready to travel to friends' and family’s homes, the last thing you need to have is your wheelchair van break down or lift fail. Especially in the winter months, it is so imperative to have a Preventative Maintenance Inspection (PMI) to check the overall safety and function of your mobility equipment. This will give you the peace of mind that your vehicle is in proper working order and you will be able to travel wherever you need to go. Furthermore, this service can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars each year especially when you catch an issue early on.

Here is what a typical Wheelchair Van Preventative Maintenance Inspection includes:

  • Inspect overall function of vehicle including electrical components
  • Check all mobility equipment including hand controls, transfer seats, tie downs, etc.
  • Inspect conversion including ramp, ramp motor and other working components
  • Clean and lubricate track, cables, spools, and drive
  • Clean limit switches
  • General cleaning of vehicle
  • Provide recommendations for additional service or repair

*Be sure to check with your local mobility dealer to learn what they offer so you are well informed before the service is performed. PMIs can vary dealer by dealer.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for BLVD.com, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
