Cumbria Mobility was formed in March 2002 and I quickly discovered that running your own business can be very pressurised. There were no systems in place, very little stock holding and we only had two staff, including the director.
I put everything on the line financially to get going, nevertheless even with limited funds, I was able to develop the business. 'Determination, gumption and enthusiasm' was the order of the day.
The hard work paid off and we relocated to larger premises in Carlisle during 2009, opposite the Cumberland Infirmary and began offering a wider choice of mobility scooters as well as high end powered wheelchairs, stair lifts, rise and recliners and daily living aids, etc.
Charity campaigner and model Heather Mills opened the new premises.
The company achieved Motability accreditation in 2009 and covers the Isle of Man for Motability, which can regularly be an adventure crossing the Irish Sea in a force eight gale!
In 2011, Morecambe became the second of our showrooms, providing free assistance to healthcare professionals and local people with mobility issues.
Growing your business in the current climate does take hard graft for sure, but with the right combination of quality products and personalised service, success is out there to be grabbed with both hands.
Our most recent adventure is working in partnership with Age UK West Cumbria to support the local community through assessing requirements for and supplying mobility equipment.
