Our Story

Since 1984, Amigo Mobility Centers have remained committed to finding the best product for each individual as you become a part of our family.

In the late 1960’s, a young Michigan native worked to create a mobility solution to help his loved one who had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Al’s dream for accessibility quickly became a family-run endeavor, and in 1984 expanded into opening our “stores.” Amigo Mobility Centers were developed to provide a well-rounded experience for clients, which include in-home evaluations, maintenance service and additional mobility related products.

Amigo Mobility Center Story

The first Amigo Mobility Center location opened in the corporate building in Bridgeport, Michigan, with the second opening shortly after in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 2016, a third location successfully opened in Las Vegas, Nevada, allowing Amigo Mobility scooters to become more accessible to Americans from coast-to-coast.
