Mobility retailer gains social media publicity following unique request
Scotland’s largest mobility retailer has achieved impressive social media coverage after helping a Glasgow radio-host surprise his colleague with a mobility scooter.
Heart Radio’s drive-time show host Paul Harper contacted Mobility Solutions’ Glasgow store in search of a scooter to surprise his co-host Lynne Miller following a tummy tuck operation.
Kara Shorthouse, Marketing Manager for Mobility Solutions, said: “Paul came and collected one of our rental mobility scooters from our Glasgow superstore, where staff member Olivia had it ready and waiting for him, along with a bag of Mobility Solutions goodies!”
Olivia Fleming, Sales Executive at Mobility Solutions, told THIIS: “We were surprised to hear from Paul but delighted to be able to help Lynne out once he explained what was needed! We hope Lynne has a speedy recovery and that a scooter for the day helped make her first day back at work easier.”
Making the most out of the rare opportunity, Mobility Solutions shot pictures and also helped Paul film a reaction video to be shared on the radio hosts’ social media channels and to his followers.
Receiving over 60 likes, 12 shares and more than 3300 views, the reaction video posted to Facebook, features Paul mentioning the retail store by name and driving the mobility scooter out of the showroom. The post also includes a direct link to Mobility Solution’s own Facebook page.
Part of the multi-million-pound Allied Vehicles Group, Mobility Solutions was opened in 2013 and supplies an extensive range of mobility products including mobility scooters, daily living aids and accessible vehicle sales from its two Scottish showrooms in Glasgow and Clyde Valley.
