About Us

Our Company

Mobility Equipment For Less started in 2013 as a social and sustainability venture to divert medical equipment from the landfill, refurbish them, and provide them at a considerable discount to those individuals that need them. This equipment ranges from electric or motorized wheelchairs to scooters to hospital beds, patient lifts, ramps, shower chairs, handicap vans, parts and accessories, and much more. 
What initially began as a recovery operation of wheelchairs has turned into a sustainability venture that rescues all types of viable medical equipment. It was at this point in 2016, to coincide with the grand opening of our new store location that we changed our name to Mobility Equipment Recyclers of New England— a name that better encompasses what we do as a company and  all the types of products we offer.

 

We realize that a lot of people need handicap equipment, but don't get proper insurance coverage, or their copays are too high, or perhaps their insurance company is taking too long to provide the equipment.

 

The practice of sustainability does not stop at medical equipment. The showroom and office space at Mobility Equipment For Less is replete with repurposed and recycled materials, from the desk to the break area. We pride ourselves in our sustainability and social venture, to do everything we can to protect the world we have been provided with.

 

Our 3 Guiding Principles

1. Environmental Responsibility

We care about our plant. At Mobility Equipment for Less, we strive to rescue unused and unneeded medical equipment from the landfill and refurbish it, reducing our carbon footprint wherever possible and going above-and-beyond to reduce, reuse, and recycle all types of mobility equipment. 

2. Community Outreach

Everyone who needs handicap equipment should have access to affordable products. Our goal is to provide equipment to those who truly need it, and serve our communities by helping meet our friends' and neighbors' mobility needs. 

3. Top-Quality Service

Whether you are making a donation, in search of equipment or are simply looking for a solution—we’re here to help you every step of the way. If you ever have questions, comments, or concerns about our service, feel free to contact

Our Sustainability Mission 

You know that a power chair is more than just a seat. But what happens when it’s time to retire your power chair or medical equipment? Too often, mobility and medical equipment ends up in landfills, tossed aside and wasted.
At Mobility Equipment of New England, we know there’s a better way. Every power chair that is donated to us gets a new lease on life: we are experts at salvaging these chairs and providing them to those in need. All components of a power chair are reused and diverted from landfills.
Our commitment to a better planet goes even further. At Power Chair Recyclers, we:
  • Ship our products with repurposed materials, donated by Jamestown Press
  • Use eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Incorporate recovered furniture into our work space
  • Continually look for new ways to go green by integrating sustainable practices into our business.
Sustainability is just another part of our service to the community and a natural part of our mission to improve life, one chair at a time.

Our Unique Sales Process

Sales Overview

Sales is a big focus for our company. Mobility Equipment Recyclers is New England’s largest provider of pre-owned durable medical equipment (DME). So in addition to repairs and rentals, we also resell affordable products and replacement parts at a fraction of the cost of new. But used equipment is not our only focus. We are authorized providers for all of the top DME manufacturers, so our customers can also order new equipment from us as well.

Equipment Processing

Before we get into the nuts and bolts of resale, it’s important that we discuss our equipment processing methods. We acquire previously-owned durable medical equipment through various means, whether it be us purchasing from the end user or their family, trade-ins (more on that below) or donations. Very rarely is the equipment that we acquire what we would call “showroom-ready.” A great deal of time is spent processing that equipment, including installing new or quality pre-owned parts, installing batteries, cleaning and sanitizing, and lastly quality assurance.

Once that process is complete, our refurbished products are brought onto the showroom floor for purchase or rental. If we deem a pre-owned piece of equipment to be better served as “parts only”, then the device is broken down until every serviceable part is utilized, and then they are stored on the shelves for future equipment processing, affordable repairs or parts orders.

Pre-Owned Equipment

After the equipment is finished processing, we have them available for sale either as parts or whole units. Equipment can be purchased either over the phone or during store hours at our North Kingstown location. We sell a wide array of products, including but not limited to electric wheelchairs, mobility scooters, manual wheelchairs, transport wheelchairs, high-end wheelchairs, walkers, rollators, patient lifts (hoyer lifts), stand assist lifts, tilt-in-space wheelchairs, batteries, vehicle lifts, bath safety equipment, bed safety equipment, hospital beds, lift chairs, ramps, crutches, canes and more.

If there is a certain piece of equipment that you are looking for, something that maybe we would not normally carry, please contact us anyways. We have a large inventory of one-off products and also a large network of nationwide dealers to source equipment from.

Big Savings

Our company holds strong core values regarding sustainability. We strive to put our biggest efforts towards sustainable practices in hopes that we can inspire others to do the same. Unwanted mobility and medical equipment end up being dumped into landfills at an incredible pace. We are here to put an end to this. We strive to be leaders in recycling neglected medical and mobility equipment so that we can find this equipment a new home with someone who is in need.

By recycling this equipment, we are able to turn around and provide it to those in need at a discounted rate up to 90% off. Most customers will experience at least a 50% savings from our secondhand products compared to the cost of new. For instance, if you are browsing the internet for a particular type of scooter that retails normally for $2000, chances are we have that same product or a similar one that is used for just $1000. We try to price our pre-owned products at least 50% off the cost of manufacturer pricing. Admittedly, for some products it’s easier to do that for than others. If there is ever a question or concern about pricing please let us know. We are very transparent.

New Products

We are authorized providers for all of the top DME manufacturers, including but not limited to: Permobil, Pride Mobility, Jazzy, Quantum Rehab, Invacare, Harmar, Merits, E-Wheels, Golden Technologies, TiLite, Drive Medical, EV Rider, Ki Mobility and Medline. Often times, for instance, a customer would prefer to purchase a new scooter as opposed to a used scooter. In addition to our pre-owned selection, we also carry a wide array of new products as well that is competitive with online pricing. So before you purchase a new scooter or other medical device from one of the big box retailers, give us a call to see what we can do for you. There’s a huge benefit to the consumer for purchasing from a local retailer and a small business!

Shipping Products & Out-of-State Clients

Do you live locally but maybe have a loved one across the country that is in need of medical equipment? Or conversely, do you live far away and have a loved one in New England that needs medical equipment? Working with out-of-state clients is commonplace for our company. All of our products that are available for purchase can also be shipped not only in the United States but worldwide.

For small parts and accessories, we offer standard ground shipping and also overnight delivery options for emergency situations. For large products, such as electric wheelchairs, scooters, patient lifts, etc, we offer multiple freight shipping options. Our friendly staff will assist you in the process from start-to-finish with order details, tracking information and technical assistance.

Payment Plans

We realize that medical expenses can really put a strain on family finances. If you are having a tough time affording equipment that we have for sale, please contact us so we can get you the equipment you need at the right price. We work with individuals and families all the time on affordable monthly payment plans towards purchases. We also work with a number of non-profits that may be able to offer assistance.

Trade-Ins

If one of our customers has a lightly used piece (or pieces) of equipment that we deem worth it to acquire, and there’s something that we’re selling that they want, then a trade-in scenario is a viable option for both parties. If you have a piece of equipment that you would like to trade in to lower the cost of something that we’re selling, or if the repair cost to fix your current device is too high, please contact us about trade-in options!

Rent-to-Buy

If you are interested in purchasing an item from us, but maybe would like to “try it out” beforehand to see if it is indeed a suitable option, you can rent-to-buy if you fall into that category (keep in mind that some products are not rent-able and therefore are not eligible for rent-to-buy).

What we would do is sit down and discuss a final purchase price for the item and a desired rental length, and when the rental period concludes the customer can either return the item or purchase it at that point. If they decide to purchase, 75% of the rental rate would apply towards the final purchase price. Contact us for more details!
