Second Georgia Store to Serve Norcross Area Community
MobilityWorks is opening the doors today on its second Atlanta area location. Located in the city of Doraville in DeKalb County, MobilityWorks will now be able to serve the surrounding suburbs of Atlanta to the east and north of the city.
The new showroom and service center will complement the store in Marietta, GA to the west, where clients will continue to receive the personalized attention they have come to expect from our Marietta staff.
Norcross Georgia, approximately five miles away from Doraville, is just one example of the more populated areas near the new location.
We are glad to be able to serve our Atlanta Northeast clients more efficiently with a store that’s closer to home for sales, service and rentals. An official “Grand Opening” event will be held at a date to be determined in the near future.

ProtectionWorks™ Includes Accessible Transportation to a Safe Destination
For most of our clients who use a wheelchair for mobility, dealing with an inoperable vehicle or bring stuck in a snow drift is a much more stressful situation than for an able-bodied person. That’s because if the vehicle needs to be towed, getting to a destination may mean not having access to an adaptive vehicle equipped with a wheelchair ramp or lift. Getting stuck “inside” the vehicle is also a real concern. That’s why MobilityWorks developed a unique roadside assistance program, with the help of its business partner Mobility Support Solutions™, to address this very need. Anchor has over 35,000 tow providers in their network to offer quick roadside assistance in every state of the country.
With ProtectionWorks™, the trade name created for the program, clients are covered with traditional roadside emergency assistance such as towing, out of fuel, flat tire and battery jump-starting assistance. The difference is that they are also covered with getting accessible transportation to a safe destination for up to 25 miles from where their vehicle had to be towed. The program will also dispatch technicians to address the needs of a lift or ramp not deploying — or a technician to help with a mobility device not working properly, such as a power wheelchair or scooter. Clients now purchasing new or used handicap vans will be offered the program, in addition to clients that have purchased a vehicle in the past.
“ProtectionWorks provides peace of mind for our clients to know that should something go wrong, it will be easier for them to get the help they need” — Bill Koeblitz, MobilityWorks President/CEO.

Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL
Huntsville is home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where much of the U.S. space program began over a half-century ago. At the facility, NASA engineers and scientists develop and test rocket engines with an emphasis on propulsion and space transportation.
Marshall became a NASA field center on July of 1960. Today, it remains a vital resource for NASA and the nation. Visitors are welcomed at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, which serves as Marshall’s Visitor Information Center. Interactive exhibits provided by the Marshall Center demonstrate how Marshall performs a broad range of activities with developing complex space systems and conducting scientific research projects.
Home of U.S. Space Camp and the site of the NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge, the Space & Rocket Center has one of the greatest collections of rockets and space memorabilia anywhere in the world. To learn more about the Marshall Visitor Center and hours of operation go to the Marshal Visitor Center website here.
In addition to being the home of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville is also home to the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal. Covering nearly eight square miles, The Redstone Arsenal contains extensive wetland areas associated with the Tennessee River and several local springs, much of which is maintained by the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge.
Thanks to all of those people who stopped by to see us!
MobilityWorks truly enjoyed participating in the 2014 Abilities Expo- NY Metro, held last Friday; May 2nd-Sunday, May 4th at the NJ Convention Center in Edison, NJ. Our team had the opportunity to speak with many great people—some of whom we already have the pleasure of knowing and working with, and many new faces too! We were able to answer questions on wheelchair accessible vehicles, rentals, hand controls and more!
The three-day event was filled with a wide variety of educational, informative and FUN activities. Among the highlights were guest appearances by the Sundance Channel’s Push Girls’ Chelsie Hills’ Walk & Roll Dance Team, and Push Girls’ Tiphany Adams; who is an inspiring speaker and dedicated advocate for disability awareness.
In addition, exhibitions on wheelchair ballroom dancing and martial arts therapy were held, as well as a presentation on the amazing ReWalk Robotic Exoskeleton system which helps enable people with lower limb disabilities to walk again.
