- Steve Bolin Commercial Products Manager Hoekstra Transportation, Inc.

The biggest reason's I like having BraunAbility lifts is the quality of the products and the follow-up support from the sales team, to the technical support and the availability of parts. Warranty claims are easy and straight forward to complete. I have never called a BraunAbility representative and not been able to talk to a live person or received a call-back in a very timely manner.

- Troy Fregine Director of Maintenance Transit Team Inc.

I have worked with BraunAbility for over 20 years. My past experience has been exceptional. They sell excellent products, but BraunAbility goes beyond their products. They have always been accessible to all my needs, from assisting with training my employees and members of the Kentucky Public Transit Association to being available to answer technical questions. Their staff has a vast knowledge to answer questions about their products to ADA inquiries. I would recommend BraunAbility to all transit associates.
