About Mobility City
Mobility City is the premier and one-of-a-kind mobile repair, cleaning and maintenance company for wheelchairs, power chairs, mobility scooters, lift out chairs, hospital beds, and other mobility products, which helps seniors, injured and disabled persons, young and old. We also sell quality products at competitive prices from the Mobility City website and the Mobility City Dollar Saver circular. Through our "white glove" service program, most products are delivered to your home, which includes set up and instructions for use.
We know that many people are unable and do not know how to maintain their equipment, which over time progressively gets worse from constant use. That is where we come in... quality parts and service at fair prices.
Persons using a wheelchair or scooter normally accumulate dust and dirt on their equipment during their regular use and travel so having their equipment cleaned are essential and important. Renew your mobility equipment with our "Clean and Polish" program and experience that clean and fresh feeling again!
By joining Mobility City as a franchise owner and becoming an integral member of our network family you will be providing our signature “Mobile Service Program” to individuals in your community which, is presently not being provided by any other company in the mobility and health care service field.

Our Story: Our CEO, Diane Baratta had a problem. Her late husband was dependent on his mobility scooter and lift-out chair during the last years of his life. One afternoon coming home from the dialysis center, his mobility scooter broke down. She called the company where we purchased the scooter only to learn they had gone out of business. 6 other calls to get repair service and NONE would come out to the house to service his scooter! They all wanted the scooter brought to them – an impossibility for them. She finally came across one who would do home service. The technician identified the problem, replaced the dead batteries THAT SAME DAY and made her husband happy, mobile and independent again!
Unfortunately, her husband passed away soon after. But, after this terrible experience, Diane felt there had to be a better solution. She was shocked to learn that no mobile medical equipment repair service existed. So, she contacted the only company that had helped her. Together, they’ve created the most effective, responsive and affordable mobile repair and cleaning service focused on mobility equipment.
When Diane met Vincent Baratta of Mobility City, he'd already spent 36 years in the home medical supply business. Together, they identified a need and a huge void for repair, cleaning and sales of mobility products for consumers and healthcare facilities. Our business model is focused on providing people with independence and a better quality of life.
With Diane as CEO, and with Vinny as COO, they are focused on providing superior operations, marketing, training and support to our franchise partners. Our goal is to have 250 mobile service partners around the country and to become known as the “AAA of mobility repairs.”
And now it gets better...two years after they met, Vinny has 38 years of experience in the industry and 2 years of experience as Diane's husband!
