HASCO Medical's Ride-Away® and BraunAbility Seek Piece of $80 Billion Automotive Service Business

LONDONDERRY, NH--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2015) -  Ride-Away®, a company that conducts sales of wheelchair accessible vans, parts, service and rental operations and subsidiary of HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), is collaborating with BraunAbility and their automotive training partner Cecil Bullard to create the mobility industry's first one-stop-shop to meet all of the service needs of mobility customers. Nationally, the automotive services business represents over $80 billion (NADA Data http://www.nada.org/NR/rdonlyres/DF6547D8-C037-4D2E-BD77-A730EBC830EB/0/NADA_Data_2014_05282014.pdf) and tighter end to end solutions for wheelchair accessible vehicles will provide greater service revenue and improved customer service.

Mobility dealerships, serving the over 18 million Americans and Canadians with mobility issues have historically only serviced and repaired the wheelchair adapted portion of a customer's vehicle. Ride-Away, in an effort to provide increased customer service and to better control the customer lifecycle is partnering with BraunAbility to provide customers with a first ever complete solution to service needs. The service enhancements are being implemented at select Ride-Away® locations in Londonderry, NH; North Attleboro, MA; Tampa, FL; and Beltsville, MD and will be rolled out company-wide after an evaluation period. Help from automotive expert Cecil Bullard will incorporate a look at the store's services, track profitability and make recommendations.

"Bullard will help us determine the best way to maximize our automotive repair business," Rick Fountain, HASCO Medical's Vice President of Service, said. "Right now our industry installs adaptive equipment and sells vans, but those vans need to come in for maintenance, service and recalls. People with disabilities deserve a convenient one-stop-shop for their service needs which they do not get today. With Bullard's help, we will have a better service relationship, maintain our industry leading customer service, and ensure we keep customers coming back to us. We want to have the total experience for the customer, while keeping the revenues in our stores, and this is how we will do it."
