Motion Specialties Vancouver made a bold step  to celebrate its 25th anniversary of business -  it moved its Vancouver store to a 20,000 sq. ft. building at  101 - 8255 North Fraser Way in Burnaby.  “We needed the space,” says Rick Nori, BC Regional Manager, Centric Health HME Division which owns Motions Specialties. “Our fast growing client base and demands from healthcare professionals (such as Occupational Therapists) for a large showroom and multiple assessment patient rooms were key factors in our decision to move to larger premises.”

“In the Home Medical Equipment (HME) business, customer service is paramount. We take great pride in the skill and knowledge that each of our highly trained staff possesses.  They are passionate about providing the right HME solution for each customer we serve.  Today we have the complete package all under one roof – providing our customers with a one-stop-shopping experience that boasts one of the largest HME retail showrooms in the province.”

The new store has a variety of specialties areas where clients and healthcare professionals can view and try products including elevators, stair lifts, accessible modified vans, bathroom & bedroom products as well as a full selection of scooters, electric wheelchairs, walkers and aids to daily living.

Adds Nori, “We also provide healthcare professionals and customers with custom seating and fabrications services.  Therapist feedback has been that our four large assessment rooms assist tremendously in their ability the select the right products for their clients, and our customers have had positive feedback about our 50 parking spaces and wheelchair assessable entrance.”

The new Motion Specialties Vancouver store also houses a warehouse and offices for its sales and marketing personnel as well as two service bays where trained technicians repair and tune HME products as well as provide custom vehicle modification services for those with special mobility challenges.

“We also believe strongly about giving back to the community in which we operate.  That’s why we built a 12-seat Board Room for local community groups and health care professionals to use free of charge. We strongly encourage local therapy community groups to inquire about this complimentary service.”

Motions Specialities Vancouver is planning to hold a special event later this fall to celebrate both its 25 anniversary in business and its new store opening.
