History of Cumbria Mobility
Cumbria Mobility was formed in March 2002 and quickly discovered that running your own business can be very pressurized. “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 once again the order of the day.” There were no systems in place and very little stock holding and we only had 2 staff including director. Cumbria Mobility relocated to larger premises in Carlisle during 2009 opposite the Cumberland Infirmary and began offering a wider choice of scooters as well as high end power chairs, stair lifts, rise and recliners and daily living aids etc. Charity campaigner and model Heather Mills opened the new premises.
The company also achieved Motability accreditation in 2009, and also covers the Isle of Man for Motability, which Steve says can regularly be an adventure crossing the Irish Sea in a force eight gale!
