Bruno - Elan Straight Stairlift“We called other companies before we choose 101 Mobility. One well known company here in Indiana kept telling us to call back, & gave us a big run around. We got on the internet and looked up a stairlift company for a Bruno lift & called the 1-800 Number for Bruno. They gave us 101 Mobility-Indianapolis’ phone number. This was the best day of our lives. They were very courteous & understanding to our problem. They scheduled an appointment to come to our home (it was 60 miles from their office). They were wonderful, this is the most caring company we have ever used. They were always on time & wanted to make sure we were totally satisfied with the installation & their work. What wonderful people! We would recommend them to everyone. This company is truly a blessing to seniors & disabled people.”– D.C. – Bainbridge, Indiana

More Happy Customers
“We are very happy with 101Mobility and our new stair lift chair! All phases of the process went flawlessly. They reconfigured our steps and custom installed the chair and railing! The installer swept our garage each day. We trusted them completely! A great experience!”
– Libby Phariss, Indianapolis
“I contacted several companies about chair lift, ramps and electric scooter. I choose 101 mobility. Best decision I ever made. Owner and staff are absolutely the best. They listen to your needs, to my budget, examined the property and came up with a plan. Our Dad did not like the ramp we built out front so the Team drew up a plan. Our back porch and stairs were a nightmare. We put up a new door and the team put in a lift from back kitchen door to the back door and we put one in from back door to basement. Our ramp is awesome and have had no trouble with ice and snow. I know I am long winded but I love these people. When you need help or repair the are quick to respond. They really care about their business and customers. Thank you Kerry Jon and staff you have made our lives easier to care for my dad. Please do not think twice……for your needs to stay in your home there is none better.”
-Debra Craib, Elwood, IN
“Jon and his team did a fantastic job with a difficult outdoor project that required hardscape work, building walkways and stairs, re-setting a lakeside dock, and making all of it accessible with a Bruno chair lift. Excellent communication throughout the project. Accurate budget and timeline projections. Strongly recommend the 101 Mobility team.”
